Fairly good look from gigaom: BlackBerry 10 smartphone launch gets a few cheers, a bunch of jeers and a lot of meh. I particularly liked the “feature parity to 2010” tweet :)
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I think that BB10 is a nice looking smartphone OS, and their new hardware looks good. But to be a plausible third player in the market they have to not only keep current BB users, attract new smartphone users, but also maybe pull some users from iOS and Android. That’s a tough road, especially when the behemoth Microsoft isn’t even in double digit market share after 2 years.
