  • Meet The Man Who Wrote A 260 Page Biography On His BlackBerry

    Typing on a BlackBerry keyboard has always been an amazing experience. With the release of the Z10, and Z30, some of us may forget at times how truly unique that QWERTY keyboard experience really is until we hold a Q10 again, or a Bold 9900.

    The ability to type for extended periods of time on a BlackBerry device has again been demonstrated by author Geordie Greig. Greig, who published famous painter Lucian Freud's biography this year, did so after writing for two years on, you guessed it, a BlackBerry smartphone. The original report doesn't specify which BlackBerry device was used, but since he started writing in 2011, odds are he used a BlackBerry Bold 9900 or another OS 7 device to complete the task.

    The biography, which contains 260 pages, was almost entirely typed out on a BlackBerry device because of how convenient it was for Greig at different times of the day to just write on it. He would write entire parts of the book as an email, about 1,800 words, and then send it to himself, so he could edit, and change whatever was needed back at home.

    "I suppose the irony is that Lucian never even had a mobile phone," he said in an interview with NewRepublic. BlackBerry would later reach out to Geordie Greig to let him know he had indeed written the first biography ever on a BlackBerry smartphone.
