Making BlackBerry 6 developer-friendly is important for many respondents.
Raul A. Montero said that BlackBerry apps are not known as being as user-friendly as other smartphone apps, and is looking forward to seeing whether BlackBerry 6 will be more developer-friendly.
"Because in the end, a smartphone is just about apps. with better quality in blackberry applications (sic) will mean more ways to use your phone," Montero wrote.
dkonigs asked when simulators and development tools for the BlackBerry 6 will become available. "I hope its (sic) before the end-user release, so we can maks (sic) sure all our apps are ready," dkonigs wrote.
Common complaints included the fact that RIM has yet to say when BlackBerry 6 will be made available, or which of its smartphone devices will run the new OS.
Several respondents said that RIM has to hurry, because if it waits too long they will move to the Android platform, to which Zackp responded, "We ALL know you're gonna stick to BB and wait this out. This looks absolutely amazing!!! I love everything about it! I just want to know, like everyone else, what phones will get this update though."
