Since I am currently in Canada for 1 more month,I bought a Blackberry Z10,eleven days ago on its launch day,Febuary 5,in Canada.I got it unlocked by Telus so it will be ready to use in the Philippines.

Yes,it tethers/ bridges to my 16 gig PlayBook which I connected to the internet via wifi only in the recent past.Now,the Z10s connection and inherent data plan,really enhances the PlayBook's capabilities and internet experience.
Quick phone review of the Z10.
Good phone.Great OS.Similar to,during RIM's heydays back in 2008(now,it is just called Blackberry not RIM anymore),the BB10's messaging and security features are top-notch.
Voice clarity,display,speed,etc.are on par or even a bit better than the S3 and iPhone 5.
8 MP w/ led flash is average.The TimeShift feature is cool.
The actual handset is ordinary or even a bit plain.I like the rubber back panel though.The universal connecting ports or jacks and the removeable battery are useful.
The upcoming Samsung S4 and iPhone 5S will probaly surpass this Z10,akin to the 2013 ZX6R 636 making significant upgrades,improvements,and innovations when compared to the venerable 2009-2012 6Rs,lol.

Eats a sgs3? Yea...ok. it have .45 gb more ram. Oh boy.. I have never had more than 1 gb of ram used. Explain how its the future of mobile computer and tech? Because every year there are bigger screens, new technology, advancement in every department. Ur phone will be outdated by the end of the year. im pretty confident when I say this.. there isnt not one thing your phone can do that a sgs3 cant do. Id like to see benchmarks of both phones. It doesnt even take a whole year before a better phone is out.

Eats the S3 because ANDROID uses an OLD UNIX KERNEL. Its 2013 QNX is running nuclear power plants and parts of the ISS by NASA. QNX is a much better performing platform for embedded systems.. not about HW specs anymore technology keeps moving my the minute. The only time HW specs are used its when the manufacture has nothing new to offer in user experience and keeps bumping up HW specs for marketing purposes. My phone has 1,000,000 pixels and mine 1,000,001 pixels..

I'm pretty excited for the new Blackberry but I'm on the fence as far as making the switch from Android to BB.

For one its called a OS or operating system not embedded system. Two I could care less if nuclear power plants use the same system. As for smoothness of a OS it DOES MATTER on hardware. You brought up how much ram the phone had. If it didnt matter on hw specs why even mention it then if your disregarding it in my comment? Also another thing my sgs 3 isnt running an old unix kernel. It doesnt even have the stock rom or kernel. And yes technology keeps moving every minute as I already mentioned in my previous post. The OS of BB is just a marketing tool. Why is there a term "benchmark test" for phones and computers if hw is irrelevant?

Edit: if your phone had 500mb of ram I doubt you would have smoothness or even be able to have more than a few apps running in the background. Ram isnt a marketing tool. The more ram the more processes can be running without having to drop other apps or services because there isnt enough memory. If you had or know anything about computers hw does matter.

Here is what u said

Sounds like BB to me. Every new phone for android has new user experience and is a open market development. BB has kept the same shit over how many years but has changed how ugly the phone looks. You could get a fat phone or skinny phone. Next phone oh my they changed the ball scrolling to a little laptop scroller. BB has been shit for years and wont even come close to being in the middle spot of their competitors. They make small improvements in phone development like the gameboy did for handheld consoles

No HW is cheap nowdays and available like in GIGS. Its all about SW. You can make 500 MB of memory run smooth like butter with the right SW. And embedded system is a term used for a computer system that is integrated. I wasnt talking about OS.. i said :: Its a platform (OS) that is designed for embedded systems.. . QNX is an OS or "Platform" when it runs over multiple OSI layers. It can run multiple applications in reali-time using microkernels. Something Android doesnt do and cant do because it's KERNEL doesnt support that. There is a reason why QNX was chosen to run nuclear power plants because its RELIABLE. NOW : Because QNX can do this its more capable with EMBEDDED SYSTEMS ( MOBILE CELLPHONE/SMARTPHONE HW). MY JOb Title: EMBEDDED SYSTEMS DEVELOPER. I write apps in for the physical layer of the OSI model. Thats not angry birds.. FYI.. Assembly language... i can tell you a thing or two about the Android KErnel. It can run angry birds, but not Secure SW for the US Government. ( Which BlackBerry does). Your president uses a BlackBerry. So yes stick to your S3 because it was meant for you
