Some days ago, I tweeted a question and got a very interesting response:
@moverick Passport of course. BB10 is Elite, Security, Fast. The best. Android is the Poor

That sounds similar to the line that Apple used to push the iPhone by pitching Android OS as a platform for poor people. So, here we are again and Android is taking the piss.
In my opinion, BlackBerry has always been elite – at least in pricing. There has never been a BlackBerry smartphone priced below N20,000. So, perhaps Alejandra has a point.
But what do I know? Over to you. Is BB10 really a platform for elites, and Android for commoners?
