I'm not as negative now on the BB London. It is a sharp looking phone. Although I like the stainless steel that was on the earlier prototype better.


I'm a little optimistic about OS x10 with support for Android apps. If enough Android developers join RIM and add their apps to the BB App World, they just might have a shot.


I think it will then just come down to performance. Because if the BB London feels sluggish compared to all the dual core gems and new quad cores coming out, then it won't matter.


But if BB plays all their cards right with the London, I could see myself picking one of these up as a secondary phone. Especially if you can install any Android APK yourself and not forced to use only submissions that have managed to find their way to BB App World.

    • I'm saying that, given that LTE can do so already, doing so with 5G should be a cakewalk.
    • So what your saying is that 5G technology can replace some of this at a reasonable price?

    • Satellite is less outdated than you think. ViaSat has 100 Mbps plans, albeit with a 150 GB soft cap. 50 Mbps is available for a relatively reasonable price, depending on area. Of course, there's still the speed-of-light problem. With that said, 25/3 with a 160GB cap, particularly if it's a soft cap, for like $60/mo,, would be straightforward to sling via 2.5 GHz 5G, and if advertised at all would give Sprint probablh 80% market share in anywhere that can't get cable or fiber. The number of places that can hit those speeds over DSL that can't get cable or fiber is low enough that you don't really have to worry about those folks (basically only rural telephone companies/co-ops do that).
