Apps: Ah. A problem. BlackBerry 10 is missing lots of key players here. I'm using a pre-release unit, so I'll assume that the developers who have committed to making apps actually will (even though some, like Amazon Kindle and Rdio, aren't done yet), but even so, there's no Instagram, YouTube, Netflix, Seamless, Spotify, IMDb, Gmail, Google Maps, Pandora, Shazam, or Hulu Plus. First-tier games like Angry Birds and Cut the Rope are there, but none of the more interesting ones you'd find on Android or iOS. The apps that are there tend to be decent--the Twitter app is better than Windows Phone's, for example, and I found a very nice podcast app--but there's no getting around the fact that the selection is limited. And a major exception to those "decent" apps is the default mapping app, which doesn't seem to use Google or Bing for its data. It has turn-by-turn navigation, but no public transit implementation at all; it doesn't even show subway stops on the map. It's very, very basic and years behind even Apple Maps.
