"A welcome alternative to the competition."5.0 starson by davekijiji
Pros: Gesture based navigation
FAST. Very fast.
Hub is super cool, neat to have everything in one spot.
Integration is flawless with online/cloud services
Keyboard is easily the best I've used (Former S2/Nexus and iPhone user)
Cons: Some apps aren't feature complete: Facebook can't do certain things competition can, still looking for Netflix, etc.
Summary: The big thing I think people need to keep in mind is that this is BlackBerry's starting point. Yes, it's their big catch-up to the competition, but it's a beginning. The first iPhone? It had LOTS of issues. The very early android OS's were horrible! If this is what we get as a starting point, I can't wait to see where this device or other devices that BlackBerry comes out with in the future. Most of the things the reviewer mentioned already are things that can be fixed in software - This means that complaints we can all have likely will be addressed in one way or another. That's the part that makes me excited - I love the overall flow of this so far, the part I wait for is when updates come out. Android and iOS both do this, I can only assume BlackBerry will as well.
For a first-attempt at a brand new OS, this is an incredible starting point.
