hahaha... although: in those pics I don't find them that similar. The Z10 isn't exactly skinny, either.

Yeah less than compelling, but then compared to the samsung with a slide out keyboard looking the same as the iphone....

The F700 with the Croix UI? I had one of those. Good keypad - everything else: craptastic. But in NO way AT all like the iPhone

Going by the look of that I'm thinking erm no, something US centric with android. brb.

Hehe, I just blame mobots moderation system.
*stares at matt*
:p

I just find it funny a Chinese company is accusing a western company of copying. Usually its the other way round :p

Off-topically: I do Iike that BB. Go on, hit me :)) Can't wait to find out which part of it RIM f*cked up. Probably a sucky cam and 90 minute battery standby with push "on" ;)

I'll guess at slow and clunky in use, still with no apps. Oh and silly price. And huge logo on front

What pondlife said^ although I will try and get hold of one to try it out to see if I like it. I really want to try one of the QWERTY phones as well to see how well the OS fits in.

qwerty will suffer with the small screen, no way round that in that format.

JanSt / MOD  Jan. 13, 2013 at 01:46

The QWERTY one seems a bit odd - screen's almost square...and the keypad looks rubbish; at least in those "leaked" photos.
The touchscreener's look I actually like. And it's chunky enough to make me think they didn't skimp in terms of battery. The logo on the front was inevitable.
Apps could be the bummer. Though, I don't mind - can live without most of the hyped stuff, but OS7 lacked some 'vitals'...
It could end up like webOS/Pre 3 ... mix of great ideas let down by execution and 3rd party support.

Yep, its for the exact above reasons I want to try it out. It'll either work well or be terrible

JanSt / MOD  Jan. 13, 2013 at 10:31

Only 6 or 7 weeks :D
I'm sure it'll be more interesting than yet another "game-changing" Android or iOS upgrade. ;)
(I said, "interesting" - not "better" hahahA)
