Depends how you want to build it, if you start ordering parts individually from different stores, you can normally just get warranty on each part, but if you do a general custom build all through one store, they normally will offer some form of warranty for it. At least around here they do.

IIRC intel offers warranty for the i5 2500k for 3 years if you clock it for less than 1.5V, anything over they wont replace it if you fry your chip. But the default 1.3V should be fine to beat a MacBook, unless you're real obsessed into getting the most out of your money

competition has ALWAYS been key in advancing any kind of industry...anytime you have 2 or 3 brands competing for marketshare is a good time for consumers

keep pushing the envelope regarding tech, design, price etc etc

I'm guessing that this phone will be a lot better. A lot riding on this. Looks good, we'll have to see. They better step it up significantly.

Sorry but its long between Android and Apple at this point in time, I don't see BB coming back and getting anywhere close to those 2 anymore at this point. They'll stick to their businesses and stupid people that thing BBM is actually great, if they manage to stick around at all (long term of course)

You have to give BB some credit. They are one of the pioneers of the smart phone. Personally I think their current lineup is far away from the competition but they do deserve a little credit. Besides with the founders all out its a whole new company now

Have you ever had an android or Iphone? Once people switch over is when they see the many flaws with BB

or rather, just how much more comfortable the other two are, they are simply better, and with the numerous apps out now, being able to read office doc, or emails, etc, isn't an advantage anymore as all three of them can do it.

i started off on an iphone 3g. long story shorty, i destroyed the phone. Then i got the blackberry bold, it does everything i need.

it all depends on what you need out of your phone. i found texting on the blackberry the most comfortable. i dont play games and i have an ipod for all my music (no phone can carry the amount of music i have).

That has nothing to do with the massive POS they've turned into now. Theres been plenty pioneers to the smart phone, not just BB. They had an advantage in the beginning and couldn't even take advantage of it and have now fell WAY behind. Sales for BB's are dropping at a steady ready month by month

You're right it does depend on what you want out of your phone, but anything a BB can do, an iphone or an android can do 100X better if you actually know what you're doing with it. Also the customization in both make them leagues better. It's what makes Androids so amazing, open source and full customization for the most part.

Also, I have over 10,000 songs on my Phone, it has the same amount of storage as any ipod you could go and buy, so really no... that's not even remotely true, not that it really matters. I actually prefer to have my music on a separate device as well.

To be honest, Blackberry's aren't that bad for certain things. As a phone it's pretty good imo, the BBM is great, but it overall just doesn't measure up to the iPhone and Android when comes to everything else like storage, multimedia, apps, fun. But it all depends what you use it for. I've had a blackberry for 5yrs and I'm ready to get an iPhone. I've outgrown my blackberry.

Nokia pureview 808 with 41 megapixel camera



Nokia N9



Nokia phone that bends


These guys are not fucking around they are seriously trying to get back to and kick some ass. Their phone hardware is superior to iphones and androids (nokia always had best most reliable hardware) but their software is what holds them back. If they can step up in there, we will have a new king in the phone market.
