Flow Interface - do not see any need for this
Blackberry hub - no need
Active frames - no need
Touch screen keyboard - shrug, I use Swiftkey and it does the same thing
Timeshift camera - no interest as I do not take pictures with my phone
App world - shrug, haven't been to Android's Play thing in many months
New browser - don't care; rarely surf the web on a phone
Balance - this is interesting. On my old BB and my Android I run different email programs. Touchdown on my Android handles my work account and Gmail handles my personal account. My IT has no access to my phone (since our buyout I stopped submitting expense reports for my phone as corporate now wants my entire bill to give me $75 back...they can sit and spin)
Connected Calendar - have this already with Touchdown
There really is no hype. It's just RIM trying to make themselves look relevant again. Honestly, the only cool thing about BB10, I've seen, is the "peeking ability" that is built into the multitasking of the UI. That's pretty slick.
