We took a break from product demos at BlackBerry Live 2013 to chat with Damian Montero, who not only had a hell of a story to tell about his personal journey through mobile development, but was also sporting the best headwear at the show by far.

We got to check out his first smartphone, his busted-up limited edition BlackBerry Z10, and get his general impressions of working on BlackBerry, Damian's a great example of an enthusiastic developer that's getting a ton of support direct from BlackBerry.

Developers, how do your  experiences with BlackBerry line up with Damian's? Be sure to keep an eye on CrackBerry Live - who knows who we'll have on the livestream next?

Sorry to write this on this subject but I upgraded to 10.1 and what a surprise, to OS is less smoother than before... also, I saw that Skype in BlackBerry world is an android porting... wtf! STOP with porting, we want native apps!!! BlackBerry OS is luxury compared to android! Why BlackBerry want to pollute his OS with crap porting!!??!

Hey tomorrow it will be fine, I felt the same way but once everything is finished synchronizing it seems to speed right up again

Would love to answer the problens... but how?? impossible to get any answers from BlackBerry !

Of course it is English. If you stayed calm and use your induction reasoning, you could have realized that "less smoother" just means "smooth". "less" and the postfix "-er" cancel each other out. Duh.

As far as the porting of Android apps. I actually love the fact that I have a Blackberry Z10 and can port apps that haven't made it to BlackBerry yet.. It is a reason why I switched to it from my Windows Phone 8.

If Blackberry respect themselves respect OS 10 ability, respect their fans and respect their customer.. they will stop porting.. or maybe open a different app market for porting.. enough about this.. this post is about DAMIAN not porting..

Can one of you impressive geeks summarize the differences between android and BlackBerry 10.x? From a development and app standpoint? And maybe also a security standpoint? Or point to something I can read?
