Let me first start by saying this and it’s a confession, I ain’t no fan of the Nokia brand! However, I have recently noticed that I’m beginning to fall in love with the Nokia brand. Why? I still don’t know, though I suspect that my cousin who happens to be a staff of Nokia here in Ibadan, Nigeria is the cause. Every day, she comes home from work and bombards me with all sorts of Nokia ideologies, accessories and phones, which I must say is cool. So, I guess I’m impressed by Nokia.

And so from the corridors of RIM was developed another line of smartphones known as the BlackBerry Bold unveiled to the very eyes of the world. The family was launched in 2008 with the 9000 Model. In 2009 the form factor was shrunk with the 9700 and the Tour 9630. In 2010 RIM released the 9650 and 9780 refresh with OS 6. In 2011 came the 9788 and 9790 along with the current flagship – the 9900/9930 series. The 9900/9930 and 9790 are touch screen smartphones, released in August and November 2011.
Guess it took longer than expected? I’m sorry for that, got all tied up with work. But decided i steal some time from my work to give the last piece of the coming of Blackberry 10. Guess you all are ready to continue dreaming of the phone?
Personal and Work modes
Sweep down on the home screen or an app list page and you’ll see Personal and Work buttons that let you switch between the two BlackBerry Balance modes. In Personal, you can install any apps you want, send any email, save any file and so on, working in a partition that’s encrypted for privacy but not locked down in any way.
You use your BlackBerry for work though, you’ll also have a Work partition that’s also encrypted but completely separate and can be locked down if that’s what the company wants. Drag down on the screen, pick Work mode and all your personal apps disappear – so you can’t accidentally copy a work file into your personal cloud storage account.
As everyone awaits patiently for the arrival of BlackBerry 10 ranging from the critics, to the fans, to the gadget freaks and mostly the marketers. Initially RIM was planning to launch BB10 before the end of 2012, with at least one flagship device running the operating system arriving in time for Christmas.
However CEO Thorsten Heins confirmed in July that BlackBerry 10 will be delayed until early 2013, as the company continues to fine tune the software, to ensure it launches in the best possible state.
