Peole like to hear an underdog stories and RIM was one of them. The story fo RIM will unfold a second chapter and with great success. Why? Because Mike is still their like when Steve Jobs made an attempt to revive Apple by creating a product that puts the compettitor a few years behind. Mike with BB10 is going to do the same and now with the help of Thornton, I'm pretty sure this is going to be a Godly comeback for RIM.

For those non believers especially the Canadians. Wake up folks, i'm an Iphone users too but definitely will be one if early adopters for BB10. Here are a few reasons:

1. RIM needs to hire back those Canadian workforce after a slump in sales and I have a few friends there actually.

2. Native DLNA and HDMI connectivity - You can easily connect your BB10 with its HDMI cable to bigger screen to do presentation or simply just to watch the video or pictures slide from BB10. No smartphone available can do this at present time.

3. NFC Capability - Secured and plastic less credit card. This will not only save you from any fraudulent card issues but tons of carbon footprint too to minimize our impact in the environment.

4. Blackberry Balance - Means having 2 in 1 smartphone , for sure competition can copy it but thats at least a year or 2 in development efforts.

5. Hub, Peek and Flow - Excellent engineering work and innovation, at least now you can multi task with your smartphone.

There are a few more innovations in this phone that outpaced the current smartphones in the market but what really compelling is, most of my friends teenage kids have this iPhone device and I'm really got to ship to smarter phones!!!
