Still, wireless industry analyst Neil Shah of Strategy Analytics said there is a definite opening for RIM.
"In this Android and Apple duopolistic environment, operators and consumers would welcome multiple choices to restore balance," Shah said. The BlackBerry 10, he added, could help "infuse some stimulus into RIM's product lineup and balance sheet next year to cross the chasm."
Race Against Windows
The key, he added, is a formidable apps and services ecosystem. And, in RIM's favor, Shah believes that developers should be able to easily port existing Android apps to BlackBerry 10.
At the same time, he cautions that, "RIM has its work cut out and will have to stick its neck out to compete with Microsoft for the third ecosystem spot."
Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 devices are rolling out now on an array of new devices, and perhaps will be buoyed by the publicity of the larger Windows 8 rollout for laptops and desktop PCs.
BlackBerry 10 could have what it takes to attract a new generation of BlackBerry enthusiasts. Reports suggest it will have an entirely new user interface with a homescreen similar to the Live Tiles in Windows 8, plus improvements to its popular messaging system that could be especially appealing to business users.

Blackberry is pure cr@p! Never had one and I don't think I'll ever buy one.

Love it and look forward for something more useful than Iphones etc, i.e. devices for children to play.
Look forward to something that is businesswise The Best, like Blackberry of the beginning.
Wish RIM good luck with the launch!

Your comparing 2 sub par OS'. You want to compete in this market you have to compete with Android and iOS.

I have been waiting so long and very anxious to see feel touch the new Blackberry 10. I hope it is worth the wait. Security is the key now and in the future and so many do not realize this fact
