I am relatively new to Blackberry. I had my first phone for practical reasons only, when I was 18-20 years old. And I was against the SMS. It was a very basical Nokia, offered free for a new subscription. Then another like this.
Finally, am I on Z10 (OS 10). A friend told me that no body believed in java any more; remermbering my bugs with BB 7, I think he was right.
I am sorry that Nokia and Blackberry had difficulties previous year in selling. Nokia because it is on my continent, and was pioneer for mobile phones; Blackberry because it is the inventor of the concept of advanced mobile phones and it is the most secure.
A mobile-phones world with only iOS and Androïd would be so annoying as dangerous, I think.
I think it is a good idea of RIM, to take the option of building their OS on QNIX, a UNIX system (as Mac OS). It seem to be more stable, and the virtual keyboard has no comparison with the one of OS 7.
I was sceptic on a "Windows phone 8 home screen", but the design of Blackberry is really better concepted. I and had regrets not to have a physical sliding keyboard, as in Torch 9810, but I have no regrets anymore.
BB OS 10 overstep what I was waiting for: very stable and convenient. But the other side of the medal shows that RIM would have make a more popular interface; I don't even know if there is a firewall on OS 10.
Oh, and I don't want to have access to Androïd applications, too.
Making the balance, I think that Blackberry 10 is a great job of RIM. This must be said and known.
Thank you for your reception.

First of all, I have to apologize.
I realized this evening that I did not tell about my interests before. In a sense, I have not the age anymore to tell my hobbies to everyone. Thought, I would like to tell about my relation to "communications" - to computers indeed.
And I see my previous post was moved. Thought, on the General support home page, introductions are under social lounge, and I did not understand. A little sentance would be appreciated.
I was a little tired. Well.
I am informatics learner. I have a little interest in programming. I don't think to make the Mac OS of tomorrow alone, so it is not my greater interest.
I heard about functional programming, - I know there are imperative programming and object oriented programming - but don't know more about functional one. There may be also quantic programming in ten years, but will require to be physicist for this.
I have more interest in networks. But my greater interest is for databases. I am know reading the only book on the Earth, were there is explained the sixth normal form - nowadays the most evolued representation of instances (tables) to make simple - the only 5 pages about that subject on the Earth. Not translated, in english.*
Among the autors, C. J. Date. Like he was chemist in a first time, I had a deep interest in chemistry. C. J. Date became informatician next, if I remember well, in IBM. He worked with E. F. Codd (a mathematician, also in IBM, and who invented the relationnal model, needed for big projects), and they told about several normal forms. The next including the previous - the most advanced now is so the sixth.
*Temporal data and the relational model.
It is very well written, even non linear.
I am very enthusiastic about databases. They are all. To give an image, Windows is a database that has to manage itself. Databases is the opportunity to have an illustrated and sweet introduction to some mathematical concepts.
And maybe, one day, could I be usefull to BlackBerry in database management, who knows ?
