One of saddest moments of each WES for me is walking by the BlackBerry Connect booth, seeing a lone RIM employee bored out of his skull next to three non-BlackBerry devices, and awkwardly trying to avoid eye contact so I don’t have to talk to him. But then I think they must have done something to deserve the posting, like giving secrets to Boy Genius, and I walk away feeling much better.
On June 3rd, Canadian carrier Fido killed off their BlackBerry Connect package for new subscribers. Apparently this was done due to the ‘introduction of new data products’, i.e. devices that don’t need BC anyways. Current Fido customers with this option on their account are allowed to keep it as a grandfathered feature. I wonder how long it will take other carriers to do the same?
