IoannisFCN is quite right in the statement. BlackBerry has defined a new target group, to which business users just don't belong. It' a business case, which will show to be right or wrong within 6 months.
I think my 9900 and the extra 9900 I just bought will bring me to the end of 2014, be it that BlackBerry kills BIS.
The present status does not show the Q10/OS10 to be a viable alternative to the 9900.

There was a brief moment yesterday when I thought that Blackberry was actually listening to the concerns like those in this forum. I thought that when I read this headline:
Unfortunately, it sounds like it's an entry level device. It's kind of funny. When I first decided to try to make my frustrations with the Q10 public, I was genuinely angry and wondered how Blackberry could abandon their core market so completely. But here we are months later and... I've lost all of that enthusiasm. It's like the 7 stages I guess. The sentiments of IoannisFCN are bang on.
All I can say is thank you for the opportunity to vent with everyone here and it was nice to know that I'm not alone in my opinions on this. But I guess I'm going to have to work on changing those opinions now to the new paradigm. Adapt or die. Right?

I upgraded my Bold 9650 to a Q10 and, for all of the reasons on this post, returned it. Fortunately I was able to use my upgrade for a Bold 9930, which I absolutely love. Simply put, there is no more efficient and intuitive platform for productivity, and in my opinion it is far superior to BB10.
I really hope these concerns are not falling on deaf ears in Waterloo. I would hope that some Bold-like device is available in the future lineup.

Adapt or die, Robert? I believe that is a little too melodramatic.
However, if I now were forced into a decision, Q10 would have no chance. Every other iOS or Android device on the market is superior. Of course they are lacking functionality, but at least they can fully synchronize with Outlook, with Android at a slite advantage.
The BB7 leak is an incredible disappointment . Why didn't BlackBerry say anything in this regard on a level, to which users have access to. Who in the world looks for hidden and ambiguous statements during a shereholders' meeting?? Had I known this, I would not have purchased an unusable Q10, but had waited for a "business BB7".
