I'd personally go for the Nokia - My wife just recently got herself a Nokia 1020 and I love how refreshing the layout is.

Nokia icon. The Camera alone is reason enough. And I would not be terribly confident in future support from BB at this point.

They aren't going anywhere for a while. If anything I would want a tablet to match it but Blackberry only has the old Playbook from 3 years ago.

It is pretty nice especially seeing I have windows 8.1 device and the experience is similar.

This is a general question and has little to do with me.

No worries. I wasn't implying to not bring that question here. It's just that specs don't tell the full story of a device, and who better to ask than those who actually use the devices in the rear world.
