Do you have any aversion to being run over by a bus?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / January 6, 2013 3:52 AM PST

MSFT seems OK with tossing users under the bus. I've been to the trade shows and sadly I see BB as the dead man walking. The likelihood of current units getting BB10 is slim. The company is a shadow of its former size and if I were to place a bet, only new devices will get BB10. (Bus rounds the corner to take out BB users.)

The Galaxy S3 players are nice. But some want Jelly Bean.

I would avoid the Microsoft phone products & BB for now. Pick and Android powered handset such as the S3 and the world is your oyster....

Why?

Can I ask why?

There are reasons to dump BB not not WP8.

Lumia 920 would the best choice.

Toss up between S3 and Lumia 920
by Nasim_Khansari / January 7, 2013 12:31 PM PST

I would not even put BB into consideration right now. At present, S3 represents complete VFM be it specs, usage or apps. But I have a gut feeling that Lumia 920 might just present an equally worthy option if the OS glitches aren't an issue with it..

s3
by nelnel96 / January 28, 2013 9:35 PM PST

hi. i own an s3. overall, im satisfied with its features. the bigger screen makes it more appealing, i think.

Really?

In reply to: s3

So by that logic Note 2 would be most appealing of the lot? I dont understand how screen size can be the benchmark while choosing a phone. Had that been the logic Apple wouldn't have sold millions of iPhones.
