    People won't be able to say BlackBerry didn't try.

    It's people who don't try. BlackBerry didn't release their iPhone clone early enough, so everyone dropped them. "Too little, too late," they said.

    No, but we can say they did nearly everything wrong..despite their customers loudly and clearly telling Waterloo what they wanted. OS 10 is a usability disaster made even worse by the removal of physical front controls on keyboard Blackberries. Their marketing is non-existent and they've given developers little incentive to stick around. Wasting time with Android emulation instead of just *USING* Android made no sense at all. BB could have simply made a great unified message and calendaring front-end for Android, released it on new QWERTYphones and maybe a full touchscreen and been far better off. But pride goeth before a fall.

    I don't know about this new cloud service, but so far it is a huge headache to have to deal with the existing Black berry cloud service with Microsoft Exchange 365. Already outages from the service has happened more frequently then it should. A day here, a day there, then a week...

    Exchange worked with no issues on PC and iPhone/Android, so had to deal with Blackberry techs that would keep telling us to wipe the blackberry phones. Then turn around with another tech telling us, "oh yeah our service is having issues."

    Sorry for the rant, just had a few BAD experiences with BB.
