Overall

The gestures may have taken some getting used to, and the lack of available apps is undoubtedly disappointing, but the BB10 operating system is fast, responsive and is far more business-friendly than its iOS and Android counterparts.

Once the app store content grows, there's nothing to suggest BlackBerry won't make good on its aim to become the third choice of mobile platform.

Pros: The operating system has plenty of business-friendly features, including Balance, Hub and Protect, to appeal to IT buyers.

Cons:Limited selection of apps could put some users off.

Verdict: 4/5
