I installed it to try out creating anapp to see how hard it would be and I only did it as its my backup phone and not my daily use one.
OK so a Nokia 920 is a bit OTT for backup but I couldn't resist the price at Tescos a while back.
Anyone instally this is a stupid as someone doing so with an untested android ROM etc, you should at least have the brains to wait a week or so for problemsto appear, oh and the can't go back to version 8.0 message has also been a blind spot for some as I see posts asking how to return to it......
Oh and my phone seems sooth as silk and problem free so I guess I'mlucky with it.
but but but
But MS should support it even if I do refuse to upgrade, after all I'm the Sysadmin for my company and.......
Whats that ? The CEO is on the phone ? OK put him through....
Yes sir, yes sir, thats ri.... I mean to...... FIRED ? ? ? ?
I am badly burned on my face etc because it didn't tell me to put blocker on.
Surely as its an iWatch it knows its under a glove whilst I am skiing........
Nah your wrong....
They want to import them and cut them up to make the iWatch.
Its just their way of fooling the tech press etc.
Oh and if I was to spend the sort of money one of these would cost I would rather get a top of the line 3D projector and a recliner seat for comfort. The real price would be high enough without the "Apple" tax added.

It was a reply to another post where Lost all faith... posted the below
Re: It really is sad......
yes, they will create a ultra secure version with no way of getting info back to Google, then they will download Facebook and twitter from the Play store.
No Joke Icon, well, just because.
Re: It really is sad......
Of course your right, no-one would work for their government would they ?
the NSA and GCHQ are full of empty desks arn't they ?
Oh and there are plenty of crooks in Russia using computers as well.....
Re: It really is sad......
And how pray tell do they download from the play store with no play services on the tablet ?
It really is sad......
Several people posting here without bothering to think at all.
Believe it or not but you can make your own version of Android that doesn't report to Google.
Some people even buy a Chinese tablet and then do their best to get it to talk to google store etc.
Amazon also I believe sale tablets that have a modified Android OS that doesn't report to Google......
How hard would it be for the Russian government to write a version for use on government systems only.....
Oh dear you all seem to have missed it.....
"He claimed the agency only slurped the communications of targeted individuals, and said that the vast majority of people who weren't on the target list had nothing to fear from his spies."
This if you look at it from his point of view is a licence to spy on everyone.
Just imagine that the target list is everyone with an internet connection then he is telling the truth, the vast majority of those without access have nothing to fear as they will have at best dumb mobiles that can only text or call.....
On March 13, 1989 the entire province of Quebec, Canada suffered an electrical power blackout. Hundreds of blackouts occur in some part of North America every year. The Quebec Blackout was different, because this one was caused by a solar storm!
Pul the other one
Come on, FB are going to pay 19 billion for a company that will take decades on current earnings to pay it back let alone make a profit.......
Not in a million years, there must be something that they want or they wouldn't be buying, and that has to be data and the ability to obtain more data.....
Did you type that with your head still buried in the sane or did you lift it out for a minute.
A non curry based hot ass feeling......
You missed the obvious
They are great at opening drinks tins etc when the tab breaks off or corned beef if you loose the key
My 2 cents worth
tried iPhone a couple of years ago, didn't like it as it was just too small for me (Big thumbs and bad eyes.)
Switched to Android and was happy for a couple of years but decided to try something different so got a Nokia 520, loved most things about it except the battery and lack of a few apps.
Have now got a 920 and its great , I needed a backup phone anyway so I thought I would try BB10, bought the Z10 and I love it, everything I want to run just does fast and easy.
So for everyday txt / email and phone I use the BB, for browser etc I use the 920. Its horses for cources and if you are into lots of txt and social media etc BB10 just works so well.
Nah your all wrong....
Sandra Bullock invented it and took control in 1995
Isn't TCP something you gargle if you have a sore throat ?
Re: And that ..
And this is why Blackberry are getting such negative press.
Idiots posting as facts total rubbish. If you had half a brain you would check what you are going to post and find that the "Android" apps are "sandboxed" and so are no problem to run unless you enter data directly.
And don't forget that BB10 also seperates work from peronal so Android can be restricted to the personal side only leaving a safe phone for work purposes.
Now go away and read data to correct your "opinion" so you can start to post facts instead.
Waste of space on the phone.
Get the tunein radio app on any mobile OS and you have 100,000 stations available for free.
Pay a couple of quid and you can record etc as well
Another case of a company giving you something you don't need.
Anyway haven't Nokia & Apple been doing this for ages as well....
Siri in a Ferrari ?
Well thats one sale they've lost.....
I'll stick to my Ford Fiesta with bluetooth and a mount to take my phone instead......
Re: We DID have an Ice Age
Its dickhead comments like yours that show you have no idea what you are talking about.
Sea level rise is down to 2 things, as stated the ice from land melting and temperature rises.
Yes thats right, water like almost everything else expands as it gets warmer.......
Now go stick your head back in its hole and leave the discussion to those with some brains.
Usual crap no brain used post from an AC
Chen is all about enterprise saving BB and BBM along with BES is a massive part of it.
Oh and the anti Zuck brigade will grow and want the best non Facebook Whatsapp alternative which is BBM......
As to an SMS killer, only if everyone in the world has it would it work, unlike SMS where I only need the phone number. Add to that the choice of a secure system (BB) or an open one (all the others) I know where I want to be.
Well there you go Lewis et al
The polution over China is blotting out the sun, therefore temperatures must be lower and therfore it explains the lack of a raise in te global temperature you keep on about.
So the answer is to get a few more countries to grow their economy and not care about burning fossil fuels like crazy and we can head for a nice period of glaciers marking across the land......
Must say I would like to see one of these phones and the wristband/headset as a package for a couple of hundred quid.....
Re: Blackberry Queries...
If you are going to answer at least get it right.
Google Play is available via the snap app. It does updates and allows downloads from the play store of most apps that you have already purchased. The main things that don't work are those that need google pay services so no signing to maps but it still works, plus seperate licence like on beyondpod don't work.
You really need to go to crackberry and get version 2 of snap.....
If you want answers
about BB10 etc then go to crackberry and have a read then post a couple of question.
the members there are fans of BB so know a hell of a lot but are also honest and not afraid to point out problems.
to be honest I would have a BB over an android or apple phone for business any day. Android app loading is easy and most of them work perfectly on the BB10 OS,only intergration with google account on a few are a problem, oh and any app you bought already can if it works be loaded onto the BB at no cost.
Podcasts for outside the USA....
Its a joke that MS realy need to fix.
Oh my dear god no.......
The thought of a bureaucrat explaining technical details to MEP's who most likely barely understand how to use a search engine let alone the details of this agreement is crazy.
Add to that the idea of th EU telling a US company to split is even dafter.
What should happen is that all other search engines should be looked at and told they must match whatever Google are being told to do. So if Google have to spilt off search so should MS etc. Not that it will make any real difference to Google if they do have to split....
It already has or have you been sleeping through the release of BB10 and its many updates....
Also new phones to go with the new OS.
At least the new OS on blackberrys is more than going pastel like another one.
Try one, you will be impressed with it.
Its already been done

So its obvious that Apple will now build one, patent it and claim to have reinvented the car.......
Re: have they not heard of MDT?
@ Rogue Jedi
Are you serious ?
You want an untrained receptionist to upgrade all the IT at a doctors surgury ?
You sir are an idiot if you think this is a good idea. Many an IT pro would concider this themslves as long as they have seen the tests work without problems, No this is kit with private medical data that needs to be working the next day so out of hours any old bod doing it is a disaster waiting to happen.
One for the list
I remember the posts here on release about WTF and Huh ? ? ?
Whoever came up with the concept of putting something into itunes and it would be used wass crazy, people want to get out of itunes as fast as they can not hang out in it.....
Am I reading this worng ?
"In fact, the top 10 was made up solely of Samsung and Apple products - with only Motorola's flagship Moto X popping in to break up the monotony."
What about the two Asus Nexus 7 inchers ?
Surely they are also not Apple or Samsung....
"Absolute tosh. Microsoft makes the most money from its Windows and Office brands!"
But mainly from enterprise and them wanting the cheap/easy option of no retraining etc etc. Remember the old addage, "No-one gets sacked for buying Microsoft software".
Just what I expected.....
Re: I sea swelling
@ Ivan 4
Its really sad when someone posts the sort of thing you just did, you claim its a scam etc and refuse to see any other possibility, that is as bad as what you accuse the majority of the worlds scientists of, they beleif in global warming but have different opinions of cause and effect. You just refuse to accept it, oh and please if no model can show climate change how do you know for sure that the climate isn't changeing ?
Re: I sea swelling
See my reply above....
So the models do predict this if we add data to them.....
Go away yourself
If you can't be bothered to look at possibilities other than your blinkered biased opinion. Try searching Google "world temperature past ten years", number 2 http://www.newscientist.com/blogs/shortsharpscience/2011/07/why-global-temperatures-held-s.html
Hardly an extreme view tome and they state that models show a halt in temp rises due to el nino and Chinese polution among other factors. The final paragraph is below, that at least is a reasoned responce unlike yours.
"So there are two key messages we can take from the research. The first is that the brief halt in global warming doesn't necessarily mean there's a problem with climate science: known factors can account for it. And the second is that the reprieve may be only temporary. "
And in other news.......
A bear was found in the woods next to a pile of shit looking guilty.......
or to put it another way
Well DUH....... You might as well list the masses of problems with MS Surface Pro tablets with no firewall/AV switched on.......
Its simple to me
If you don't like Google you do have a choice ie Bing, Yahoo, etc hey you can even Google search engines for an alternative.
As a business that provides you with search results they are however basically the best and lets be honest when was the last time some told you to bing it (as in Hawaii 50) or even duck duck go it ?
As to this, yes MS etc are pissed at the result, they were after all trying to get themselves to the top of every search.....
Google say we wont be evil
Facebook dont say anything like that
Who do I trust more with my data ?
Well Duh........... facebook is not on my kit at all.........
Re: Yes, but...
Who cares if it runs Linux ?
Thats not what 99.99999% of those who would buy it care about, if you want Linux on something buy a desktop or laptop on stick your niche product on there.
This is what people like me want to see, stick these in instead of a windows job and most of my family tech support is gone. So much better for use than a windows box for the majority of the population as well....
I for one hope Apple get a wide covering patent on this
Then there will be a much lower possibility of it ever affecting me as I own no Apple kit and don't desire any either.
Please Please Please make this an Appe only system......
Apple stop wasting the courts time with this crap. Theres most likely some poor slob who's maybe innocent sat in a cell waiting for a court to hear his case whilst you waste millions chasing after more when you have already won more cash than you deserve.
The court should set a time for this and all pending cases of say 90 days court time including appeals etc, any time over that would incur a fixed penalty of 1% of the companys takings in the previous 12 months. They would soon focus then and sort it all out real fast.
Either that or the CEO's given a set timescale to come to an agreement or the same penalty imposed......
How could they possibly work that fast ? for a start sack the patent lawyers and take one lawyer who is an expert in corperate law only for each side.
I almost became a member of a very exclusive club and boosted that figure to 91......
Then I woke up next day without the alchohol bending my reality field and didn't buy one after all.
I bet also that even the most doubtful among us wouldn't have given a figure that low if we were serious about it.......
My desktop has started showing that it is ready to head for the recycling dump. If the yoga version is a cheap enough unit here in the UK then it will be the replacement rather than another desktop.
Connect a monitor, keyboard and mouse and it will do 99% of what the desktop is needed for. The other 1% ? thats what sisters and their windows laptops are for, after all I provide the tech support for it.
You really need to go and look again at the MS tax on Android.
Its commonly beleived to be on the transfer of files etc when connected to a computer and is a PC software patent and not a mobile one.
Also Google arn't paying it, phone makers like HTC are so again fail.....
Oh and a software protocol is not a thing as a thing is something that can be touched / handled etc.
Ah but the first request was for a copy of everything on their servers.
All other requests were for the same thing at different times of the day plus news on the new iPhone 5s before release etc
Yeh what Apple have said is not very helpful unless you know the scope of the request.
Nokia 10% hmmmmm
Cut out the great value for money Lumia 520 and see how many others sold.....
Its simply because they are so cheap for what you get that people are buying them, its the same for the Nexus 4 and 5, not the best phone out there but most buy it because its a lot of phone for the price when compared with others.
Microsoft have a big problem, they can't sale without cutting the price and that will make them a budget phone maker. Lose Lose either way.
