I am sorry for you to say, "I fully disagree with your comment".
We use BlackBerry phones for our business. We are now using the Z10. We are also looking at the Q10. The Z10 screen is a bit larger for Web based work.
In business we need tasks, scheduling, document and spread sheet reading, strong email capability, very good quality phone performance, and strong browsing to be able to run Web based applications. The Z10 fit in to all of this compared to most of the others. A very big plus on top of all this is the security of the BlackBerry phone, and the strong local support for it. On the hardware side the BlackBerry is of high quality assembly using high quality components.
Corporate decisions for our phones are taken on practicality, performance, security, service, and the strong capability to be able to backup my up the user data. The BlackBerry phones fall in to these categories.
If you want a toy with poor security instead of a real communications device then there is a lot of choice out there.
My job requires very reliable mobie communications, management, and efficiency. I deal with many clients through the day.
Historically BlackBerry has been very reliable to make improvements with their updates. Thks is a big long term plus.

Agreed. Whatever its sync problems and issues with calendar event postings, the Z10 is an outanding business tool and represents a worthy successor the Bold, Curve etc.
Roll on the Q10!!
Yes, the Z10 is an outstanding business tool!
But only if you are lucky enough to have an employer that has implemented BB Enterprise10 or you can afford the expenses to run it on your own server!
For the small business owner, requiring full two sync for Outlook/contacts etc, it is an expensive media mobile, requiring 3rd party worka rounds, that make it no different from any other smart phone.

Like syncing photos and music. I don't need that for my business.
lol, then don't sync your music and photos if you don't need it. (And just by the way, your old BlackBerry also synced music and photos).
I was a heavy user of the manual wired USB desktop Outlook sync. I was also disappointed it was not present (even on the PlayBook almost two years ago) but I have since moved to a wireless Outlook sync set up explained many times elsewhere in this thread and in this forum. If you need help with that, let us know. It works well, not perfect, but is working.
