  • BlackBerry App And Developer Milestones Point Towards Progress



    Research In Motion is trying. They are trying very hard to get developers on board as part of the uphill climb towards BlackBerry 10 and apparently the success is slowly starting to show. RIM has shared with us some of these statistics from Q4 2011 to share with our readers which will show the progressive improvement that's happening.
    There has been a clear commitment from BlackBerry to developers, with tools focused on usability and ease of development; increased involvement and contribution to open source; reinvigorated community event involvement over the last six months; new energy and leadership in Alec Saunders and Martyn Mallick; as well as the unprecedented seeding of a non-commercial testing device - the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device - at BlackBerry 10 Jam in Orlando this May.

    Free vpn

    I would suggest to use paid VPN instead of free one .. PureVPN is good for BB devices
