    I personally am a big fan of Blackberry’s open source nature, and wouldn’t switch at this point. I agree with Alex that social networks that are not integrating with mobile AND mobile applications that are not integrating social at the ground level will not succeed. It’s all about leveraging the APIs!

    Great post and video. Alex gave a great perspective on BB and the directions moving forward with apps. We plan to do some homework in order investigate the platform further.

    One thing I really don’t like with the Blackberry OS are the paid apps, some can really be expensive. The iOS for example have paid apps but if jailbroken, a lot of free apps can be used. The Android also offers a lot of free full version apps.
