It's very good.
The evernote app is horrible compared to other platforms. The only acceptable notetaking app is Groovynote and it still lacks a lot in a lot of departments.

If anyone came out with an app that allows me to annotate powerpoint and pdf files, I'd really be able to use my PB for studying. Still praying.

A look back at BlackBerry World 2012, a look ahead to BlackBerry 10

Here's a good read on where BlackBerry currently is:

To me this whole lowest point in 8 years just show up biased and little many stick speculators really know. The most recent conference went really well from everything I have read, and yes that includes outside of crackberry.com. A lot of people were impressed with things like the camera and other features expected to be part of BB10 yet the stock still goes down. Tis life I guess.

The stocck went down because investors were hoping Heins would announce a strategic partnership with another big tech firm. Heins did not so the price fell. The crazy thing is that BBW is that it's more about development than the actual business side of RIM. RIM probably never planned to make an announcement of a partnership at that point.

Stock went down after Apple launched the 4S yet it's the product they've sold the most.

If I recall there were other reasons for the drop but can't remember off the top of my head.

Actually he died the day after, so he was on his deathbed when the 4S was being revealed.

Maybe poetic justice for the sweat shop labour he used to make your iPad.

Yeah because all the parts that are in your phone were extracted ethically, because the shops where they produce BlackBerry in Thailand and Mexico must be dream jobs... Yeah Johnny, don't go there in a Tech thread. This is highly political and much more complex than just the Apple-Foxconn angle. I remember watching a documentary about Nokia buying some kind of rare mineral from rebels in Africa who extracted via child labor and horrible working conditions.

So yeah, let's get back to BB10.

This thread needs to be renamed "stuff linked from crackberry..." and the porsche designed phone winning an award in Germany? No way!

Personally I thought it was an ugly ass phone, especially since it was like $2k.

I agree. I also didn't like the dotted patterns on the images as well.

iPhone in first place. A few Android manufacturers tied for second.

Rogers and CIBC first to launch ‘mobile wallets’ in Canada (on BlackBerry)

The sole handset partner supporting the CIBC-Rogers NFC solution to date is BlackBerry maker Research In Motion Ltd. Apple Inc.’s iPhone currently has no plans to bring on NFC technology, a blow to consumer adoption perhaps but boon to rival smartphone makers.
