Looks interesting. RIM is rebranding itself, and Blackberry Balance seems pretty interesting. Not that I am looking to switch anytime soon, but I am excited to see a Canadian tech company making a comeback -- if they're successful :P

Played around with BB10 off a friend that works at RIM when he came back during the holidays, all I could say was that it was long overdue. However, I was impressed by some of the features and the phone looks relatively good.

Not sure if this is convincing me back from WP, but business is nice.

I'm rather surprised how popular it is. It's getting a lot of news here in Canada as well.

CEO says it's more popular than expected. Of course, I'd like to see some actual numbers.

Acutally looks good, maybe that's just because it's better than my lower than usual expectations.

 

Sadly, it's too little too late and I've already switched to Android.

They're advertising it like crazy. With Canada's ridiculous 3 year contracts it'll take a while to penetrate :P

 

Either way, I have no plans to switch from my iPhone 5.
