RIM wins “Best Mobile Technology Breakthrough” for SurePress

10 Comments

Although the SurePress technology has gotten some bad feedback in the blogosphere, you have to admit that it is a unique solution to touchscreen typing. This past Tuesday at the Global Mobile Awards in Barcelona, RIM’s SurePress won Best Mobile Technology Breakthrough. Some in the blogosphere are saying that RIM won because it is such a big sponsor and the cash bought it the award. I say: “tell me what should have won then.”

Apple app store? Old news.
LBS apps? Too broad to give to one company.
Android? The apps haven’t blown me away or anything.

    Are you sure it wasn’t the SurePress as opposed to SureType.

    I totally believe this is one of the smartest technologies invented for input into a mobile device – hands down! I love mine and I own both iPhone and Storm, have used Bold, Curve, 7290, everything!
