    I can’t wait for BB10! Getting the L-Series first day it comes out… I’ll upgrade to this beast when it comes it hopefully next summer.

    If they can truly solve the battery problem and most of the software bugs that plague the phone, they may stand a chance in the market. As for number 3 spot? Well, it will be a tough battle for them considering the new Nokia devices coming out.
