5 Things I Won’t Miss About the Old BlackBerry OS

Comments

Even though we’re a couple of years away from an actual legacy BlackBerry OS post-mortem, here are a few things that I won’t be missing about the mobile OS that defined smartphones. Unless you’ve been under-utilizing your device, you’ve probably acquired many of the same BlackBerry pet peeves as I have. Although it may seem that I’ve put together a BlackBerry shit list, It’s all stuff I’m glad the new platform won’t be inheriting because of good design.

Dear CBC, RIM and BlackBerry 10 are at CES 2013 in the Form of QNX

20 Comments

It’s especially painful when you read an anti-RIM article on the CBC versus other sites. It’s not that the CBC has to blindly defend every Canadian company, but they could at least have some honest, independent journalism rather than jumping on the anti-RIM bandwagon.

A recent article highlighting RIM’s absence from CES 2013 is a great example of this problem. It doesn’t make any sense for RIM to be at CES 2013 from a BlackBerry 10 perspective, yet the CBC is taking this as some sort of negative for the company, or making it indicative of a larger problem. All the while, the CBC is completely neglecting to mention the presence of QNX at the show.

Here are a few popular questions we’ve been getting and my answers. Feel free to add your own thoughts on these questions. As I said, it’s all pretty up in the air so any and all opinions welcome.

BlackBerry 10 Jam Videos From BlackBerry World 2012

Comment

RIM has posted their BlackBerry 10 Jam videos from BBW2012. I think giving developers nearly a full 2 years head start before launching on smartphones is a sound strategy for the platform to launch with a critical mass of apps.

Lots of BlackBerry 10 Jam videos after the jump.
