    Amazing! I'm so glad Blackberry has listened to its customers and is giving us what we want! I hope they keep the company alive with this phone. It truly looks amazing and I'm not surprised they had a really good stack of tricks up their sleeves.
    Definitely gonna buy.

    What blackberry should do is let people do whatever they want with their phone. Encourage them to do what they want and offer the original ROM on their website in case people who changed it to a custom one can download it again. They definitely need all the help they can get.

    Why doesn't Apple allow BitTorrent on the app store? The program in itself isn't illegal and if any program that allows illegal activity isn't allowed then better get rid of web browsers, etc too.
