A prediction for what ended up being the Q10

April 27, 2013

Just under two years ago I made a post on one of my favorite cellphone forum sites, as well as here. I hadn’t really thought of that blog entry and post until the early hour of this morning when the only person to view my blog was from the United Kingdom and specifcially went to this old post. 

The post I’m referring two is here & here – titled “Thoughts on Nokia E6 vs BlackBerry 9900“. On April 9, 2010, Research In Motion announced they would acquire QNX Software Systems from Harman International Industries. Although my blog post was dated July 9, 2011, the original thought was posted on HowardForums site on 03-30-2011, 10:12 PM EST. 

Readers will wonder why I’m bringing this up? Here are some excepts and related to the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and a tidbit about using QNX. 

having a small screen and small resolution for an OS that is to thrive on a large screen – will leave you wanting more. 
having a large screen with higher resolution with a keypad will look & feel like those 2 horrible HP Win6.1/6.5 smartphones of yesteryear that will really cause remorse.

Just looking at the underlined, I actually thought I was completely off, but read on further …

The key will be to have a medium size screen – 1″ larger than the Bold 9700/9780 models, being just as svelte to have large battery yet fit in the hand just as perfectly. Not to mention such a screen BEGS to have a higher resolution (Half-VGA just will not cut it; UNLESS smaller icons & more adjustable font)!! Although RIM is taking their SWEET ARSE time to perfect this … I just think its a dead endeavor and that a refined Storm with the Torch’s screen along with QNX is what consumers and the industry needs.

The Bold 9700 & 9780 both had screens of 480 x 360 pixels & 2.44 inches, at the time of the above post quoted, I was thinking 3.5″ screen – of course the Q10 has a screen of 720 x 720 pixels & 3.1 inches. The last part underlined, pretty much foreshadowed the Z10, however we needed a keyboard to be added to the mix, so a top end resolution is not required for the successor to the 9900. 

And the final part of my post was the icing … 

The quick popularity and stable sales of the Torch 9800 have proven that traditional and new BB users WANT a larger screen
– We require that to READ MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint attachments (Not everyone will carry a PlayBook – portability of IN the pocket will ALWAYS best in the Jacket pocket). 
– We require more screen real-estate to enjoy the web, especially multiple tabs
– We require more screen real-estate to remote into PC/Mac/Nix machines and admins for Servers
I can attest that BES5.01 SP1 is NOT suitable to be viewed EVEN on the Torch’s screen. 

Going forward RIM needs to think about mobile access to the BES for Administrators if it wants to really best the competition. To be honest … not even APPLE thinks of this with Safari and Snow Leopard, Leopard or even Lion/Lion Server built-in.

I nailed it! I really did!

    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform
    you’re working with? I’m looking to start my
    own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

      I’m using WordPress.

      For your choices you’ll need to list what you want in features and ease of use for modifications on your blog platform of choice. This should make it easier for you to decide. I wish I could offer more but that’s not the focus of my research, views, or my blog.

      Happy hunting.

    At this time it looks like WordPress is the top
    blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

      Ok … this is about the 30th question on this subject I get daily and its auto filtered into the SPAM comments. The name of the platform I’m using is IN the NAME of this site … its pretty obvious seriousmobile.wordpress.com

      Cheers.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally
    educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I came across this in my hunt for something concerning this.

    I hardly comment, but i did some searching and
    wound up here A prediction for what ended up being the Q10 | Serious Mobile.
    And I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be just me or does it look like some of these responses look like they are coming from brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are writing on other social sites, I’d like
    to follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of every
    one of your public pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed,
    or linkedin profile?

      twitter is listed I believe on the right side bar. I’m not posting my FaceBook as its separate and personal odd you would ask of this, another bot? I’m not writing on social sites but public forums … search for Supa_Fly/Supa_Fly1. If I have anything fresh I’d post it here. LinkedIn is related to work colleagues and professionals related in my field I most definitely will NOT be posting that!

      Those last two requests sound about as brain dead as the folks that post …

      “Hello there, I believe your blog may be having web browser compatibility problems. When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other than that, wonderful blog!”
