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?
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

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!
Well since I'm on a bringing back forgotten things kick here...
Picked up a used Q10 about a month ago and have been loving it. I switched from a 9930 to an Iphone 4S then 5S about a year ago because I got tired of not finding prepaid BB data plans when I was traveling with work and didnt want to pay for international data. I have to say I do love the 5S since ios7 but I found I was constantly getting behind on long emails that I would put off until I was back at a computer. Have absolutely loved it! I'm just using it on wifi/tethered to deal with emails (couldn't get an earlier one since they lock it to BB data until the release of BB10). I do miss the scollpad since it's nicer for reading than covering the (small) screen with your thumb but I'm quite happy to be back on it for emails and avoid it for everything else
