To my friends in K-W, thank you for your patronage. :-)
You can count on me to buy and promote future #BB10 products. The world is large enough for many ecosystems. Obama still loves you guys for your industrial strength security and many people, including me, love #BBM.
Congrats for making it to the big dictionary with BBM. :-) There are a lot of good people in K-W that have survived some dramatic changes but are motivated by some renewed focus and commitment to deliver compelling new products.
My own barometer tells me that developers are very excited. That is a great thing! To the people focused on games and social (you know who you are!), keep at it. Lots and lots of opportunity there.
If America’s intelligence community can count on Research in Motion, then there is no excuse for existing owners and Canadians and fans worldwide. Hey, while I do admit a price break helps, the Playbook is a top-seller in Canada. And don’t pay attention to the “popular” media. They’re writing content for eyeballs and “spam wars” about which platform is better. You know - “Google stuff”.
You watch and see. Apple will come out with an iPad Mini. We’ll soon learn about the big lie from Jobs about no one requiring anything less than 9.7”. Not true — I went to a Kindle Keyboard because of its portability compared to the bulkier iPad (Gen 1) which is just fine for most settings.
Size DOES matter to the user. Give them what they want. I still only see transit commuters with “small” Kobo’s, Kindle’s, Sony Reader’s and Playbooks. No iPad in sight.
This almost feels like a movie trilogy I like. :-) RISE. DARK KNIGHT. RISE.
