With a variety of smartphone platforms to choose from, such as iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry and etc., it’s hard to say which one is the best. Each has their own strength and weakness, and each user has their own reasons for going with their preference. At the moment both iOS and Android reign supreme, with either platform owning a fairly sized chunk of the pie, but RIM is hoping to steal some of that pie from iOS and Android with their upcoming Blackberry 10, but the question we’re sure many are asking is that will they be able to?

RIM’s CEO (unsurprisingly) seems to think so, and in a statement, Thorsten Heins was quoted as saying that he believes that iOS is a downsized computer operating system, while Blackberry 10 has been described as a “true mobile computing platform”, a term which is most definitely up to debate. This is a surprising chance on his stance, given that not too long ago he was quoted as saying that he believed Blackberry 10 had a shot at being number 3, which we admit was a pretty modest and realistic goal for the time being. While we have yet to try Blackberry 10 out for ourselves, based on what we’ve heard and read and seen so far, it looks like it might have some promise, but we guess we will wait until next year to find out.
