What I am going to do...



There is a great series in the developer blog about moving from BB Java to BB10 (Native/Cascades or HTML5).

You can also check out my session from Amsterdam about my experiences:



While i was not very excited about the change myself (as you can read on this thread) and still think that it was handled very badly by BBRY - they lost a lot of loyal developers - the new platform is very convincing, and due to Qt the native side is a lot easier to handle than i thought.

It took me about 3 months to work productively as i did not have any c++/Qt knowledge, but i am back on track for some time now.


If you want to stay with java, well, Android...

I suggest that you check out developer.blackberry.com, check the new BB10 OS and the devices and decide afterwards.
