    Oh, I see what you're saying, but no thanks. I'll take your word for it. I'm currently running iOS 8 on my iPhone 5 and am quite pleased with it. It doesn't bother me one bit that it's a "carbon copy" of the Blackberry OS. To me, it's an enjoyable user experience on a device that I prefer.......and I'm a longtime Blackberry "fanboy"... for real.

    Personally, if I never use a Blackberry again, it will be too soon. I had one for work and it was the most detestable, user unfriendly, ugly thing imaginable. My opinion of course.

    So if I get you straight, what Apple have done is take an ugly, awkward device, ripped all the good bits from it and made them better. I can't see a downside here.

    You do realize Blackberry's are beyond OS 5 these days right? Ever use BB10? Didnt think so.

    Apple has never been shy about ripping off others ideas.

    I have blackberry z10 and a q10 and doesn't have anything with iOS.
    But if I can I'll convert an iPhone + a blackberry 10 into one smartphone.

    NO. NO. NO. Blackberry stole it from webOS and then Apple followed suit, but did a much better job at copying it!

    Yah it shows the level of desperation of the BB acolytes. At 1 or 2% percent marketshare they're doing all they can to consider themselves relevant.

    Even with the tank of the Apple stock last week BlackBerry's market cap is literally a fraction of Apple. The consumers who buy more iPhones in one week than BlackBerry does in a whole YEAR care only in what the iPhone does for them. The who copied whom is absolutely irrelevant when they choose iPhone over anything BlackBerry puts out.

    Whether of not someone copied someone else is irrelevant. It always is and will be, and I am not saying iOS 8 copied BlackBerry 10 but who copied who threads are tiring. Plus for us consumers does it really matter in the end?

    Not at all. And on top of that I don't have to rip off another platform's developers to get their unsupported apps on my device.

    But apple is the one going around suing people left and right, and god knows they rip of more ideas than anybody else. And by the way ios multitasking is still not in the league of webos. It has a lot of hype tho, maybe that's why its they call it the hype phone

    And yet, people are here, in a forum primarily catering to Apple products and services, awaiting the launch of the new iPhone, and hoping to be among the first to purchase and receive one.

    Haha it is true. They need to cut the nonsense and make an Android device already, Amazon is a third rate app store.

    And THAT is what counts. Tech enthusiasts can say what they want on an online forum. The consumer has spoken - where are BlackBerry and WebOS in relation to Apple?

    Right....

    and a one car manufacturer copied another, and a generic drug manufacturer copied a brand name drug manufacturer, and one mutual fund portfolio manager copies another. The list goes on and on.

    MS copied Apple for an GUI OS.... and Apple copied Xerox. Does your everyday average consumer care?

    Apple is successful, WebOS was not. Whether you agree or disagree with Apples method of success is irrelevant. Not to be harsh but Android and iOS are the only mainstays in mobile OS's right now. I wouldn't be surprised if BlackBerry goes away next year and WP is dropped by 2016. Both are hitting some high roadblocks.

    Well BlackBerry can consider themselves lucky that WebOS didn't sue them into spending he last 3 billion they've got left to pay them off.

    And, the *milliions* of iOS users don't care a flying fig about whose multitasking is better. They care about when they can get the *NEXT* iPhone.

    At 2.3% market share, BlackBerry's ripping off WebOS and ripping off Andiroid apps for their devices without developer support doesn't seem to be earning them any advantages. Rip off WebOS, rip off Android developers, and this is where you end up...in the "also ran" category...
