Just because you don't, PJC, doesn't mean that others won't. While many of the existing BB users consider their devices as office tools, I think it would be misguided of the new management to simply ignore the vast(er?) market out there who may be swayed by a phone that rivals the current crop of smartphones that have impressive 'social' capabilities.
Contrary to your view, I think it's rather encouraging that BB has the foresight to cater for both markets.

Fair enough - but not catering for their traditional users as a priority seems a bit short sighted. That's all that I am saying.
It's a great pity - because everything else about each of the Z10 and Q10, both of which I have bought, is excellent.
Which on has the edge for you -Z10 or Q10?

Some more news from my source, I removed the start of the sentence;
"...who works on the desktop team and the 2 way sync feature is done and is in beta testing. It should be released in the near future."
This should have been a priority from the start but I am SO happy to hear progress with something so important to everyone I know with a BBerry! When I told my colleagues about the lack of 2 way usb sync to Outlook they looked at me with disbelief then frustration. What the ... was the reaction every time.
I too would like to know who prefers the Z or Q and why? I have the Q and feel that a keyboard without a mouse pad was a waste. Maybe should have gone with all touch if I can't have the essential mouse, return, telephone and end keys. The key board is the best ever!!! Very nice.

The lack of mouse is a a pity but the touch screen pointing feature works very well once you have got used to it and understood the need to move the circle around to get to the precise point on the screen which you need.
I was initially upset by the lack of the telephone key. But I find that the ability to type into the keyboard directly "call joe doh" which immediately brings up "Joe Doh"s contact details with the option to call whichever number is appropriate is a perfect;y acceptable compromise.
