……Who Really Should Own A BlackBerry?? **

This thought has been lingering on my mind for some time now, about “who really should own a blackberry?”

I was at my work place recently and this bloke steps up to me, and says ‘please I can’t find my pinging’ :/ (Lmao); as funny as it sounded, I felt really disappointed. First of all, his grammer was bad enough to own such a resourceful device like this. Going back to the drawing boards, what are BlackBerry(s) really meant for? Business? Yeah!; Communication? Yeah!; Socialization? Yeah!

Now we all can agree that these are like the three (3) major reasons why you should/could own this device. Now this my guy here really had no reason to owning a device like this, looking at it, what kind of business can this guy carry out on a smartphone smarter than himself? or what calibre of friends will he be socializing with?

Though, even some of us who claim to be literate, and all, we still send silly, shallow and baseless BCs, put up shameful pictures and abuse this precious device. Are we @FathomBerry supposed to do some kinda post on ethics?? naaaah! Don’t even expect it.

So whether its a gift or you actually bled and sweated to get this smart phone, please treat your device with some iota respect and dignity. Learn how to use it properly, we @FathomBerry exist for this exact purpose. Ask us anything, we don’t mind giving BB 101 lessons 😀

Some updates before we say tata!

* Summing up the latest rumors around the features and specifications of the first BlackBerry 10 full touchscreen phone, rumored to be the BlackBerry Z10. We got to even see the specs. As we know it, the “BlackBerry L-Series” is a compilation of devices (London, Lisbon and Laguna) that will slightly differ across the various regions in which they will be released. In short, that means that while they should all visually look the same on the outside, some of the internal hardware will vary and allow for different network access throughout carriers in these areas. So here are the specs :

Dual Core 1.5GHz TI OMAP 4470・ Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960 (US and Canada)
Quad Band HSPA+ / UMTS (850/900/1700/1900/2100MHz) ・Quad Band GSM / GPRS (850/900/1800MHz) ・Quad Band LTE: Bands 2,4,5,13,17 (700, 850,1700, 1900MHz)
4.2″・1280×768・356PPI ・24 Bit Color ・15:9
8MP Auto Focus ・2MP Front Facing ・Flash ・1080p Video Recording
1GB RAM ・16GB Internal Storage ・Hot Swappable microSD Slot
802.11 a/b/g/n ・2.4/5GHz
Autonomous ・A-GPS
1800mAh Removable
Ambient Light Detector ・Accelerometer ・Magnetometer ・Gyroscope ・Face Detect for phone calls
NFC ・microUSB ・microHDMI-Out ・Bluetooth 4.0 LE

* WhatsApp
We actually heard there might not be WhatsApp on the BB10 yet, the thing is most companies when asked will give that sort of generic answer because chances are the person you’re asking either doesn’t know or doesn’t want to say, but recently a response was gotten that it will be available on launch. Nice!

* Playbook OS
The BlackBerry playbook Os has been updated to Comes with some fixes.

* Beta Zone.
The Blackberry Beta zone is now available in 23 additional countries.
Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Rep. ,Ecuador, France, Germany, Guatemala, Honduras, Indonesia, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, Panama, Peru, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Venezuela.

I believe we all have seen the new twitter and Facebook Apps already so that no news and yeah, Blackberry has decided to change the name of their online app store from ‘BlackBerry App World’ to ‘BlackBerry World’ because there’ll be more than just Apps in the BlackBerry World come 2013 and BB 10.

And just a little something something, President Barack Obama still uses his BlackBerry 😀

More to come……….FB

Play This Holiday****

The holidays are here again, and I know we all got plans. I  asked my siblings not to get me a gift, instead they should save up all that money for one of the blackberry 10 phones. My eldest brother is like, ‘that should cost a fortune’; who knows?
RIM recently said we should expect the Blackberry 10 phones to be reasonably ‘affordable’.

So, I got a call from Chiboy yesterday, not your regular phone call but a dang video call on my playbook, and it was quiet cool…more like skype; I began to wonder, practically pondered why people don’t like/use the Blackberry Playbook?! I’ve used mine for close to four months now, and its been wonderful; no regrets. I went online to check out tab competitors and I stumbled on this :  http://www.techdigest.tv/2011/06/blackberry_play_8.html

Yeah its a tablet smack down! So if you read it, you’ll see that the Blackberry Playbook is pretty good and even better than the ipad @ a lot of things; personally here’s a short list of my favourites:

*E-mail – whatever plan I have activated on my Blackberry smartphone, once connected to my playbook, I get emails from my 6 active mailboxes; I don’t need a full months subscription.

*Picture quality – I can’t explain this, it just blows my mind; it has a 5 MP cam at the back and 3 MP at the front people!!

*U.I (User Interface) – There are so many gestures available for the playbook which makes it interesting for me, and people keep starring at me while I swipe from top to bottom, and from side to side. Swiping down from the top, brings you setting. When on the home screen, options menu or when using an app, swiping from the left corner brings up the keyboard; while swiping from either the top left or right gives u a peek into the status bar.

I wouldn’t want to bore you with plenty playfully obsessive stories, why don’t you demand a blackberry playbook as 1 of your Christmas gifts this year 2012? I said ‘1 of’ because the playbook isn’t really expensive; for those of you HATERS, that say it doesn’t use a sim card, there’s a new one now that supports sim cards + 4G so ctfu 😡

Anyways, Happy holidays in advance
