Dragons’ Den Kevin O’Leary: ‘BlackBerry 10 is the Best Technology on the Market Today’

Yesterday, during BlackBerry’s surprisingly good quarterly earnings report, chief executive officer Thorsten Heins said that BlackBerry 10 is “the most innovative computing platform in the market today.”

Well, that same day, popular Dragon Kevin O’Leary said something very similar on television. During an episode of the Lang & O’Leary Exchange, the ruthless investor—who has historically been fairly hard on BlackBerry—had nothing but praise for the company’s latest software and hardware.

O’Leary said that he dumped his iPhone in exchange for a Z10 after having someone show him how amazing the device’s touch keyboard was. We agree with him: in our review of the Z10, we said the keyboard was its best feature. He also noted that two other Dragons switched to the new Z10.

“This is the best technology on the market today,” O’Leary affirmed on the TV show, sounding a lot like Heins, adding in reference to his Z10 that “I always have the best.”
