keyboard is impressive. display is mighty impressive. android ics has a shitty keyboard with shitty predictions. and i am amused that android devices still have not got a display similar to what RIM has delivered on their dev unit... excellent resolution on a 4.2 inch display. everything looks great in the above device. the only problem is that it would probably alienate what blackberry people are used to. but it would be good that they would finally have something similar to android to go for.
well the point is that nokia is competing against android and the only thing they have to offer is a good price. blackberry on the other hand has the advantage of their regular customer base which pays for their devices no matter what they charge. blackberry is not a consumer device. they messed up when they started targeting the consumer market. and they are unlikely to succeed in this market simply because of the alternatives available. funny thing is that with blackberry 10, they just might end up doing that. they might alienate their regular market. i already see a lot of blackberry people annoyed with the changes they made to the blackberry os 7. at least one person i know who currently uses a blackberry has plans to switch to android in the future.
From what I see in a few photos, the BB10 UI will be an enhanced version of the Playbook UI. So, as you say, a regular base is established. Maybe, if the price is right, a few more people will get interested. So many people bought the Playbook when they dropped price by 60% , so obviously, people will go for BB, if the price is right, However, I feel they are going to start by pricing their higher models at 40k and mid range at 25k, and hence loose out.
there lies the problem. RIM cannot make much money by selling Playbook at the prices they are/were selling in the market. the volume is still negligible and negates any benefits. the ecosystem does not exist and is unlikely to exist especially considering a lot of developers do not even bother to release their apps for android... forget windows phone platform. of course, things can change. but the fact remains... webos was an incredibly mature mobile platform but it still failed. blackberry could be heading into the same direction.
you mean tizen? i don't see nokia making devices with tizen. they are too involved with windows phone and symbian already. tizen is likely to be used by samsung though they already have the bada platform.
