Why I'm giving up my Q10 to go back to the Bold 9900 - v2

Hey all,

 

continuing this probably the most popular threat in this forum so far. just read that BB might actually introducing trackpad and function keys in the new bb device. great news as far as i am concerned and in their face who said this will never happen (SandersJ you know who I am talking about).

 

quote: This would definitely make for an awesome BlackBerry 10 device as one thing that Q10 and Q5 users have noted is that they dearly miss the trackpad and function keys. It could also help make for an easier transition for those users coming directly from a BB7 device to BlackBerry 10. While BlackBerry hasn't confirmed the device, It would make sense for BlackBerry to go this direction and John Chen did also recently say that future devices “will have some of the features our power-users love”.

p.s. I also read on twitter that the new CEO is going to exchange his pearl into Q10, this shall be fun as well Smiley Wink))

[ Edited ]

if anyone wantes here is the link from previous thread: http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/BlackBerry-Q10/Why-I-m-giving-up-my-Q10-to-go-back-to-the-Bol...

 

the idea of this topic is that we explain why we think 9900 (OS7) devices are better than new OS10 device, specifically Q10. 

 

this topic should be only shut when there are no excuses for using os7 against os10. 

 

there is still one big thing which is BIS though. BB should give us the option to choose whether we want BIS or not (for instance in the set up of the phone).

also read an interview from Forbes magazine with John Chen he compared bb to Porsche, they small segment but they are doing alright. this explains why they make Porsche bb devices. and also mentions that bb shall have a keyboard, no words on touch screen. 

 

I didnt also know that Angela Merkel switched to bb (no idea which device) once she found out that USA hacket her phone (what device?).

 

this guys seems to understand what to do with this company, hope he has the gutts to do it.

i got it arnd a yr ago and sold it off, now got it again few weeks ago just to check whether the new update has done the job. not for me, sadly. 

 

any dates when this new phone will be available with trackpad etc?

 

p.s. just watched the samsung galaxy s5 presentation.. pretty cool new technologies and ways & places to use the phone.
