take iphone or android. You can practically DROWN in updates from a single app and not be able to find important stuff.
On Windows Phone, it gives you the number of notifications but no details. you have to open each individual app to see what's going on.
On BB10, all notifications are in the hub you get an unread count in the homescreen (as opposed to iPhones method of interruping what you're doing), and you can quickly sort notifications by app or account. And because of this method, notifications can be "persistent" in which you can just scroll down to see older notifications/messages.
It's not something you'll see fidding with a display unit for a minute, but it's very noticeable when you're using it on a daily basis.
And thus lies the problem I see with Blackberry, they think just because they have a good quality phone that is somewhat up to modern day par that it will do well; regardless of the fact that developer interest for it is much lower than Windows Phone, app amounts aren't close to being acceptable, as well as the fact that there is less consumer interest in a Blackberry than a Windows Phone. It's literally just like if Windows Phone 7 launched this month or next, as it did a good two years ago: very little third party apps, not a large multimedia marketplace, not yet feature rich. It took Windows Phone 8 to propel it off 7's momentum, which is seen by the fact that in three months, 8 is already more than 50% of Windows Phone total marketshare. Several companies from India, the US, to England have already announced Windows Phone adoption and the ONE common thread here is them citing that they're already a Microsoft driven enterprise, so a Windows Phone is the last piece to the puzzle. If they were a google driven one, maybe android. iphone if they have questionable accountants and IT staff.
Honestly, I'd rather see a buyout of Blackberry by an OEM that will use Windows Phone on it along with Blackberry's exclusive features. How I see it literally, the UI design of Windows Phone lends itself out better on the go than Blackberry, you literally take a couple of glances to see relevant information and you're done. You could even use just the lockscreen to see if you have any missed types of communication.
But those are just the cold hard facts, if you ask an iphone/android/Windows Phone user if they would switch to a Blackberry, you'd be disappointed. Again, mainly Crackberry users would, or long time Blackberry fans. Most people I'd bet would be surprised Blackberry is still around, let alone releasing a new handset. There simple isn't enough stock within it to sell it. Verizon might have some fun with it, but some insider said that Verizon is selling Windows Phone hard because they're less expensive for them to carry and that's the platform they're selling to users that mainly do some web browsing and email and don't care too much about apps. But we'll have to see that one though. As a Windows Phone user, nothing really interests me with the Blackberry, there isn't a feature that really stands out to me that it's a must-have. And again, this is coming from someone who believes the iphone is boring, drab, superfluous and awful; and android being something it's not.
Then again, I'm not sitting around plotting revenge on a company because they "did you wrong."
So it's not consistent. and you still have to open the app to see all notifications.
