Bored with iPhone - Wecome back Blackberry!

I think I will get the Backberry/Q10 with keyboard
BlackBerry Q10 hands-on

The blackberry Z10 is out now but I think I want a physical keyboard..
BlackBerry Smartphones, Mobile Phones, PDAs & More - BlackBerry UK - United Kingdom

I will miss the GS app but that will get eventually phased out buy a mobile skin anyway (in the next year or so..)

And I will miss Omnifocus

But not a lot more IMHO

Anyone else got itchy thumbs?

Want to get back on the Crack-berry?

I just dont feel I have TIME to noodle around & play on iPhone and all the missed key typos drive me crazy..

I feel you Jules, since the iphone 4, i cant see how they are gonna make it better. I loved the iphone but wanna try something different. The GS3 and 4 are just too damn big for me though.

that q10 does look like exactly what I want from a new blackberry.

i personally love that my Curve doesnt really do anything apart from phone, text, email and tell me when my train is leaving.

One thing I would love it to do is link texts and emails with events in my calender, so when I get sent a rider for a gig or whatever, I can find the email from the calender. Looks like the new Remember thing goes a little way towards that?

Samsung s4, no? Much less restrictive than an apple product. Enjoy either way.

Q10 and the screen was too short to do the dumb ass swipe gestures successfully.

All the different elements, phone messages, browser etc all gave the feeling they were made by different companies. It wasn't cohesive

Screen was WAY too dim

On a sunny day I can wear (prescription) shades and just crank the brightness on my iPhone but on the q10 would have to take off my shades and put on my glasses

..former long term blackberry user here, I found the Motorola xt925 and never looked back. Rare if ever, do I have envious thoughts when my wife talks up her iPhone version 5,.. My motorola has a big easy to view screen, slim powerful hand held that never let's me down. I just can't do the iPhone mate, it clashes with my Doc Martens.
Be well mate

GS3 here - absolutely love it - and there's a GS Android app.

My wife has got a (company) i5 and she absolutely hates it.
Her boss has told she can have whatever phone she wants next and she's already drooling over the GS4 literature.

The i5 will be the last piece of Apple produce to get the bin in our household.

I'm nearly ready to abandon the iPhone in favor of a Galaxy S4... The iPhones look cooler, but I don't think Apple is keeping up standards of quality. And the whole locked down system (iTunes) for backing up and loading music makes me crazy (and I've had an iPhone for over 4 years!). Time to try something new!
