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.

All day, every day

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

"Blackberry needed wow, delivered "pretty good"
Because it is brand new coding not one line of the OS on BB7 OS was used on BB10. It should be treated as new. BB is treating it as a brand new start. They admit it in their conference. They are treating it as brand new because it is brand new. It was going to be just QNX but they decided to use that name for tablets, I believe how the story goes.
