I am glad you started the post. I too have owned it since the launch here in Canada, and yes the first two days was frustrating to use because I kept trying to use it like my old Torch. I must say now after a month, it is truly the best phone out on the market. The features that I love, the most: The keyboard, the Hub, The multi-tasking wow, The browser, the speed and how smooth it is, the peek feature, the 3rd party apps that utilize the OS10 operating system, that how good an app can be on a smart phone. Hope other app manufactures start utilizing the features of the OS.
I bought my wife an IPhone 5 about the same time I picked up my z10 so I can justify my new toy.. Now that I play with both phones, I find it very slow compared to z10. The screen size is tiny compared to the z10, The iPhone is easier to use than the z10 when you first pick it up, it does have a better camera than the z10, but after a couple of days and learning how to do things, it becomes second nature.
There is still lots of room for BB to make this a better phone and OS by adding some features that was clasic to BB and also fixing some of the bugs that have been reported.

I agree with your comments about the browser, it is that good. I never used it on my old torch because the screen was too small and the speed was terrible. As a real estate broker, the phone is such an important part of my work and I need the browser. In the past I carried my laptop with me to browse sites that I use everyday and now I leave it at home and use my z10. The thing that made me buy the z10 was the flash support. Almost all my sites use flash and including my own web site.. This was important to me.
I have not upgraded to the new OS yet, it is suppose to be released on Thursday. I found that 99% of the little bugs went away for me after I did a system restore and started from scratch. There are a couple of minor things that I am looking for a fix in the new os.. . I found that device switch was cause of most of my problems. I have a work around to get my contacts and calendar from my desktop outlook and will use that until BB link supports USB sync.

I am looking forward to the zos upgrade. Have been checking daily for it.. It is nice that the camera takes better pictures in low light and improves the battery life and fixed a couple of the bugs. I did pick up the extra battery and case with it.. its a must thing to have with you.. My battery life is actually good, I can get through the day without plugging in the charger. But my two kids keep using my phone to play riptide and have it HDMI to my big 60inch plasma.
