Giving Blackberry Another Try (Day 1)

Growing up the Blackberry platform was the best smartphone platform for its time. I had almost every single model of the Blackberry that I could get my hands on starting from the RIM950 and ending with the Blackberry Z10.

I was one of the first people in line to buy the Blackberry Z10 and was super excited until I got my Z10 home, updated, and charged.

After half of a day on standby, the Z10 notification light was blinking indicating that the battery needed charging. I found this hard to believe but charged it back up to full and continued my day. Around 4PM that same day, the light was blinking again and so I returned the Z10 after being told there was nothing wrong with it, and never looked back.

Here I am in 2015 still wanting Blackberry / RIM to succeed and as a result am giving Blackberry another fair shake. So far I’ve set everything up to my liking and side-loaded the android apps I use daily.

Today is Day 1.
