Web Design Cheat Sheet for BlackBerry 10

I came across one of a handful of productivity apps, specially developed for web application and webworks developers. A reference & editing tool for HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript bundled with a wealth of Information, Syntax higlighter, Code Samples, Resources, Code Editors, Documentation, Video Tutorials and Site Feeds. Web app devs spend so much time creating tools and apps for end users, we never take time to arm ourselves with even the simplest mobile resources and tools for everyday use, but CyberBytes Design has a solution.

Its a new BlackBerry

It’s not just the name. It’s not just the phone. It’s a shift from then to now, a top to bottom makeover. While BlackBerry (ex-RIM) was known to continue advancing in mobile device management security and solutions, many felt that on the mobile phone front they had gotten stuck in time.

Decoded: New Samsung Ad Bashes BlackBerry

It seems like trolling is not for the fans alone as Samsung recently released an ad directly bashing the iPhone and especially BlackBerry.
