First 10 Hours With A BlackBerry Z10 Smartphone Device

Weeks before the launch, I reserved my Z10 with Rogers.  I logged into their website and made sure that I had Black version set aside.  I figured that I had nothing to worry about.  Well I was wrong.  February 5th, 2013 came along and by 9 AM I was texting my local rep to make sure he had my phone ready to go. His reply was not what I wanted to hear. Flashback to 6 days earlier.  The long anticipated launch where everything would be made clear.  Thorsten Heins, CEO of RIM (now BlackBerry) revealed the

RIMM’s Wild Ride: Time to Jump Off?

BlackBerry maker Research In Motion (Nasdaq:RIMM, TSX:RIM) has definitely seen its share price in motion through the past couple of years.  That share price has nearly tripled in the past four months, but is this more “irrational exuberance”?  Or did that September low of $6.18/share put an unreasonably low value on the company? Disclaimer: yes, I hold RIM stock.  I followed it down and I’m following it back up.  As well, I’m not a

BBX Will Succeed: If RIM Markets it Properly

  As all PlayBook users already know, RIM’s QNX based operating system is superb aside from the few missing features that RIM is known for.  We all know that RIM will not release any phone ever without proper email, calendar, and BBM.  Blogs that have posted otherwise are just trying to start controversy because apparently RIM bashing is the thing to do recently.  The PlayBook is a superb device that is now showing it’s true power with all the games being released over the past month.  The browser is also my favorite non laptop browser I have ever used.  That being said, sales have been higly disappointing.  There are 3 reasons for these disappointing sales. PlayBook’s month after month delays Lack of Native email, calendar, and BBM Terrible Marketing campaign Now, I think the first 2 reasons I just mentioned were the main cause for reason number 3.  RIM realized it would be a waste of money to market an incomplete product.  In turn, I think RIM actually turned the PlayBook into a mass produced beta project like we’ve never seen before.  What I mean by this is that when iOS was released with the iPhone, it was a make or break situation.  When Palm released WebOS, they couldn’t afford any extensive testing or they would fail, which they did anyways.  The other example is Windows Phone OS.  Many people I know that tied themselves into a 2 year contract with a Windows phone are very disappointed and can’t wait till their contract is up.

Mobile devices allows us to save/secure very important data; BlackBerry’s have secure password keepers. They have the ability to browse the world wide web and obtain various information through downloading and live data streams. We can send short messages through sms or text messaging. Sending instant messages and e-mail has become quite easy throughout the years and it will only get better as we move forward.

Editorial: A Tale of Two Tablets

It’s PB-Day +2 and business wire is quite silent this morning. The speculations have been exhausted. The attack on your local retail stores, probably never happened. And you’re probably reading this on your laptop because you haven’t purchased a PlayBook yet. Not saying you won’t, but you’re probably going to wait it out a while longer. Until all the bugs are gone, or maybe until you can afford it. That’s my situation at least. RIM has sold approximately 45,000 PlayBooks on opening day and I think that’s a really strong showing, but not strong enough. BlackBerry fans everywhere are weathering the storm. Disappointing as it may seem…I took this opportunity to do a little write up on how the iPad and PlayBook stack up in terms of reviews, analysis, and actual specifications.

Editorial: Verizon iPhone 4 Thoughts

Let me apologize.  I know, this is a BlackBerry enthusiast site.  However, it is news worthy, there are a lot of customers unsatisfied with their existing smartphone, be it an Android, BlackBerry, or other device.  Even if I was an iPhone kinda person, I still wouldn’t run out and get this on release day, and I’ll explain why.
