Spent the better part of the evening with some very tech savy individuals playing texas holdem.....These are employees of a small local mobile device software developper that develop applications and various other software for IOS and Android....
There opinions on BB10 were quite interesting with the consensus being that BB10 is nothing but a hype for the moment and that it is barely catching up to Android & IOS and that RIM's new hardware will not be available until summer. They were suggesting that RIM is too late to the party.....and that the delays incurred developing BB10 have provided IOS and Android ample time to reload.  Most of these guys had been BB users and suggest they will never go back. Too little too late....
I'm still holding my RIMM(nasdaq) and plan to hold through to the release with expectations that there is enough hype to move SP higher......
