Yes, I have been a long-time BlackBerry user – and loved it.  When the batteries on my BB Bold were dieing, I held off on purchasing a new smart phone until the until the new Q10 was available.    Was it worth the wait?  Well the phone took a long-time to get used to.  And now I love it.  But I was a real BB fan.  With really simple and intuitive iPhones and Andoids available on the market, who wants to go through that?  People will go through a learning curve when the product is really cool and revolutionary.  But is the Q10 or Z10 revolutionary enough?  When we are already living in iPhone and Android world?  No wonder Fairfax had such a tough time finding equity partners to fund BB.  At this point, I can’t really imagine a successful outcome for them.
