    Great News

    Great news, Blackberry devices are very popular in the Caribbean. Here in Barbados my mobile carrier Digicel is an HSPA+ network and the tech guys there are closely following the BB10 developments, they can't wait to get their hands on the Blackberry London when it's eventually released...neither can I for that matter.
