Blackberry protect does not work on BB10.

From this link

"For BlackBerry® 10 devices, BlackBerry® Link is used to back up data."

So 10k decent apps isn't that more than Apple or Android had at their launches?
That's the problem, BB fans are treating this like BB never existed and this is a 1.0 product. If that's the case, it should be Blackberry 1.0. It is not, this is ver 10 of their OS and they are expected to hit the ground running. Don't count those Android apps either, everywhere I've read says that running Android apps is a huge fail, and of the 70,000 "native" apps, many were ported from the playbook and are equally poor.

Yeah the camera is crap. Do most people's iPhones make it through the day? My work G3 battery is crap too.
All day, every day

There is no real innovation here... as one analyst put it:

"Blackberry needed wow, delivered "pretty good"
