geek experiment: Blackberry 9780 for 30 days

Well, it has been a while since my last post so I thought today I'd write out a little smartphone experiment I've been working on.  I pride myself on being in the 'know' on all relevant smartphone OS and in turn realized I was falling out of the Blackberry world and thought I'd better bring my skills up to now.  Keep reading for the my thoughts on using JUST my Blackberry Bold 9780 (T-Mobile) for 30 days.  I even added a Playbook to the mix to really shake things up. ;)

cord control: my cord management system

If your a geek, you probably have cord management issues. I know I do and finally have come up with a pretty decent solution.  Today's post will give an example of how I deal with cord management in my living room.

Unboxing: Blackberry Playbook (pics)

As a gadget freak, I don't discriminate against tablets even if they don't have any fruit logos or little green robots on them.  Here's a quick post of my unboxing shots of the new Blackberry Playbook (64GB). Some pics of unboxing were taken with a Blackberry 9780 so not as good as some taken with my S95.  More details and a review to come after a week of using. Enjoy!

Tablets: My three lessons to the industry on launching

2011 has really started to shape up as the official year of the 'other' tablets.  Last year (2010) we saw a limited release of Android tablets however they were running standard smartphone Android OS versions that were in turn tweaked for the tablet interface (ie Galaxy Tab running on Froyo 2.3 with Samsung's Touchwiz launcher/overlay, Nook tablet running 2.2/2.3 and a tablet skin).  However this year we saw the first of the real, Honeycomb (Android 3.x OS for Tablets) tablets and all the rest of the non Apple tablets.  Today, I plan to outline a few guidelines that I think Android tablet makers need to address before they even attempt to launch a tablet.
