poot_rootbeer: If I were a RIM shareholder, I'd be demanding an explanation of why they are developing their own web browser instead of just building on WebKit, thus guaranteeing interoperability with every mobile site designed for Mobile Safari and Chrome.Also if I were a RIM shareholder I'd shoot myself in the farking gut.
Mad_Radhu: And the web experience will probably STILL suck on BB10 because everyone will target Safari and the default Android browser, or sites like Facebook will use the browser performance as an excuse to not create a high quality app for their service for years, like what happened with the iPad.

I can design my mobile site for over 90% of the users of mobile devices (combining the market shares of iOS and Android), or I can cater to a far smaller group and make my website less usable to the 90%.Hmm, what to do.

RoxtarRyan: The BB10 may be a great product, but RIM suffers the same problem as Windows Mobile Phone and the Surface tablet: Lack of developers.
Cooper420: There's a facebook app for BB10. Supposedly Facebook now has a new in-house testing standard for app compliance on devices and RIM has the very first to be certified BY Facebook.
1000 Ways to Dye: Of course, the article linked talks about conformance tests, which are quite different, and quite useful.
