In August 2011, I sold my BlackBerry smartphone to my Mother for $80 and moved over to Android. I purchased a HTC Desire S for around $400-500. Don’t get me wrong, it was hard moving to Android from BlackBerry. I’d be losing BlackBerry Messenger, Push email and of course, my beloved keyboard. Now, in April 2012, I’m still using my HTC, and though I’ve enjoyed my time installing ROMs, overclocking and doing various other warranty destroying activities, I think it’s time to move on, and get back to my old BlackBerry ways.
On April 19th 2011, I purchased a BlackBerry PlayBook. I watched it develop, from OS 1.0 through to OS 2.0. I witnessed the increase in apps, which is a subject with much controversy. I believe the increase in quality and quantity was dramatic, and that the range of apps now available is great. This said, I still think there’s room for improvement within app world, by certain developers (Cough, Netflix and Skype).
