"None of what is on display here — the clean yet unremarkable typography, the tasteful but de rigeur color gradients, the straightforward but rudimentary iconography, the communicative but nearly featureless spinners, arrows and other visual cues — is particularly distinctive or unique to Blackberry. In fact, they demonstrate a startling lack of character, almost a willful desire to be mistaken for any other random operating system."
I totally agree. My very first impression of the new Blackberry homescreen was that it looked like a cheap imitation of Android 2.2 (Froyo) from a few years ago. I think "missed opportunity" is a bit of an understatement here.
