It was fun, but I was expecting something like BB10 handheld hands-on, or at least shown us the capability.
In Berlin all sample presentations are made directly on dev alpha devices via HDMI output to the beamer to shown the capabilities at this point. I was really impressed and I think they are going the right way for now since the users of the future are mainly everybody, and they need to focus on everybody, not only in business anymore.
When seeing the amount of devices sold from other big players using other OSs they need to go with the flow and BB10 should be something special, including almost all the software and hardware stuff users need to connect their life and business to the mobile world (incl. Facebook, Twitter, Google, Skype!!!, ..., 4G, GPS, NFC, SD-Card, ...).
I think the BB10 Dev Alpha is a beginning of something worth to try (for me, since I haven't a BB smartphone yet) in Q1 2013 (hopefully!!!).
