How to transfer data from BlackBerry 10 to a new iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c

So you gave BlackBerry’s newest platform a shot, wasn’t happy with what they’ve made so far, and now you’re falling into the arms of a shiny new iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c. We can’t blame you - the iPhone 5s is a pretty attractive piece of hardware and the iPhone 5c is a pretty good deal even if it wasn't the budget iPhone we all expected. iOS 7 is introducing a lot of great new features too which make the entire package even more atttractive. For many this is going to be a return to familiar territory, for others it’s going to be a bit of a culture shock. Either way, we’re here to help.

Here's how to get your stuff from your old BlackBerry 10 phone to your new iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c:

Are you jealous of BlackBerry 10? [Poll]

Are you jealous of BlackBerry 10?

Our friends over at CrackBerry highlighted a forum thread today where a BlackBerry 10 user claimed their iPhone-totting friends were jealous of all the shiny new features that phone had to offer. I've been using a BlackBerry Z10 for over a month now, and while I like a lot of the ideas BlackBerry is testing out in their new OS, I'm not in the least bit inclined to switch over yet, and I'm not sure jealousy has reared its ugly head even once.

The gesture navigation, even if less discoverable, is great once you get the hang of it, as are features like peek, where you can glimpse messages without transitioning completely into them, and the hub where all communications are aggregated. It really does feel like webOS all grown up, now sporting a suit and a tie. But there are still the types of quirks you'd expect to find in any new operating system, which need smoothing out and polishing up, and not only are a lot of major apps still missing, I can't find any of the apps I use every day on any platform outside iOS (looking at you Twitterrific, Tweetbot, Launch Center Pro, Fantastical, Drafts, Elements, etc.)

But I'm curious, if you've had a chance to see or try out BlackBerry 10, have you felt the least bit jealous? iOS is now the oldest platform in mobile, and BlackBerry 10 the newest, does that tempt you in any way? Or are you too busy enjoying what's still the best interface, app, and content experience to have even noticed BB10 yet?

Vote in the poll up top and let me know the details in the comments below!

iPhone 5 vs. HTC One vs. BlackBerry Z10: Judging phones by their form factors

Oh, internet. It seems like only last year the iPhone 5's design was decried as boring and lacking innovation, but fast forward to now, and the BlackBerry Z10 and HTC One (or at least a supposed render) stand accused of being too iPhone 5-like in their design. We just want to hate on everything, don't we?

BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha update adds... Siri

The latest update to the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device has added... Siri! Okay, not exactly Siri, but it is a virtual personal assistant in the style of Siri, and while it currently switches between voices s seemingly at random, one of the voices is exactly the same as the female voice Siri uses. Chris Parsons took it through its paces over at CrackBerry.com and you watch the video above, or head on over there, and see what he thought.

How iOS 6's flagship features compare to past versions, and to Android 4.1, BlackBerry 10, and Windows Phone 8

When Apple announced iOS 6 at WWDC 2012 and showed off its 10 new tent pole features, the response was... mixed. Some were delighted by the new maps app and the Siri enhancements, thrilled with Facebook integration and Safari image uploads, and intrigued by the potential of Passbook. Others saw iOS 6 as more tock than tick, a minor point release rather than a major new OS version, inattentive to power-user problems, and a sign that Apple was slowing down.

With Google releasing Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Microsoft readying Windows Phone 8, HP trudging towards open webOS, and RIM scrambling to get BlackBerry 10 done and shipped, the competitive landscape has never been hotter.

So, just like we examined the iOS 6 and the App Store: Apple's multi-billion dollar balancing act evolution of the App Store in a competitive context, let's compare iOS 6 to previous iPhone and iPad software previews, and to what the likes of Google, RIM, and Microsoft have shown off to date.
