The new BlackBerry broke cover right before our eyes in Canada last week, and you said “show us the software!” So we did. You said “show us the hardware!” We did that, too. You wanted to know our first impressions. We gave them to you. You wanted to see it do battle with Windows Phone 8. We granted your wish – twice. You asked how it compared to Android. We answered your question with a Note II. And now it’s time to answer it again – this time, with the reigning king of the Android smartphone landscape, the super-popular Samsung Galaxy S III.
We know you’d like a BlackBerry-to-stock-Android comparison, folks, but our company Nexus 4 is on assignment deep in the bowels of our Pennsylvania headquarters. We’ve tried to confine the comparison to traits common to all versions of Android, though, so TouchWiz or no, we assure you this video is worth your time. Dive in to see these platforms do battle in terms of hardware, interface, multitasking, ecosystems, and cameras, and stay tuned for much more coverage as we continue our in-depth exploration of the newest hotness out of Waterloo!
