Some good reviews.

We will have to see how it pans out.
The Palm Pre got good reviews, too.
Turned out to be too little, too late.

Here's somebody with an odd (negative) take on Blackberry's future:

He sort-of hints at what will be their biggest challenge: Developer attention.

App developers will preferentially go with the biggest install base: iOS, Android head that list. Microsoft is a distant third, though growing fast with the Windows leverage. Blackberry starts out 4th.

By the time the start-up with the next "cool" app gets to them, the app may no longer be all that new or cool.

A steep climb ahead at best.
