    My last BB was the Tour as well. Trackball issues were the end of BB for me. Never again.

    Hope it grabs some of the market though, competition is good for everyone.

    Well they got rid of those a while ago and the trackpad they used afterwards was 1000000x better.

    You're right. It was of no consolation to those of us with the trackball models on a 3 year plan though! Gaffes like that will lose customers forever.

    I will say that the Z10 looks really nice. And I would leave Apple for it. But I'm too attached to the Note to go back to a closed system now.

    Luckily I only had to suffer through it for a year before I upgraded to the Torch 9800.

    Yeah, I wouldn't leave Android for one but I'd try it out. I'd leave Apple in an instant though for one of those. :P

    I saw the bb 10 three month ago at rim in Ottawa. All the senior management staff were given one. A friend of mine that works there showed it to me. I wasnt that impressed by it. Sure its a step in the right direction and has a few bells and whistles. But it can't compete with the note 2 or the s3. Apples and oranges.

    Are you serious? The new BB is YEARS behind. its going to have little to no app support. They are JUST now upgrading to tech android was using 3 years ago

    I think it competes with 2012's mid-range offerings nicely even beating many of them.

    However, I don't think anyone expected RIM to beat the "flagships" like:
    -Nexus 4
    -Galaxy S3/Note 2
    -Optimus G
    -Xperia Ion
    -Droid DNA
    -Razr Maxx HD
    -Lumia 920
    They've never been "bleeding edge" but for BlackBerry Users that still haven't upgraded to a high-end Android it's still a huge step up.

    They seem to be aiming at the mid-range Users which is probably the majority of consumers. Not everyone buys devices every few months like us.

    That said, I do still plan to get one though definitely won't make it my daily driver.

    what's your main reason for switching? the keyboard I assume? If this had came out early last year i'd probably have it too, but I would have a hard time giving up the extra real estate after getting used to the Note

    Look, I don't want to get on the wrong side of android users. The question was who will be switching to BB10. Not who thinks BB10 is better than android. Personally speaking for myself, I prefer the Blackberry. If the Q10 is a better Blackberry, then I look forward to trying it. It might be better, maybe not. Reviews and first impressions don't influence my preferences. I like the Note2 and will enjoy using it till the Q10 comes to the USA. I look forward to it. No big deal, just being honest. My phone is in my pocket most of the time, I don't care about the huge screen, I don't type well on a touch screen, I don't need the promise of a bazillion apps, Im not a gamer. Please don't take offense with me, I didn't ask the question.

    I would have considered getting the new Blackberry devices if they were released about 2 years ago. Had Blackberry phones prior to Android. No signs of going back no time soon.

    No. BB stock even took a hit after the intro of the new 10 series. Poor stock showing = less $ = slower, less innovative development = less support = dead company unless swallowed up by one of its competitors....

    A simplified theory. Oh, I'll reiterate my answer to the thread title..... No

    Don't think I'll ever leave android 100%, but that Q10 hardware is great.

    WTH is with all the bezel on the Z10?

    I will NOT be switching to the BB10. However, I do agree with this poster that the question wasn't which phone is better, but rather "Who's leaving for the new Blackberry phones?" Based on Npunk42's response it even sounds like the presence of a physical keyboard is important to their need(s)?

    For me personally, I will not be leaving the Note 2 for any phone (Blackberry included), until an OEM can make a phone that uses Wacom technology. The S-pen is such an important part of my daily use that I could never use another phone without handwriting capability. In fact, I have the Note 10.1 and the two work great as companion devices.

    I get the feeling after like a month of owning bb10 most people will get bored with it. It doesn't have enough features to keep the hunger for more at bay like how the Note 2 dose

    i would only get the q10 to balance out my big phone issues. about once a week I want to use a smaller phone, mostly while in class. I am the unfortunate owner of a 64GB Playbook (dad got an iPad, i got the Playbook, which isn't bad if all you are doing is emailing on it)so if that gets updated then I will know for sure if I want the q10. If not then Ill pick up the Galaxy s3 mini or Galaxy express, those might do the trick.
