As a part of the annual BlackBerry EMEA Alliance Summit, the event that RIM hold for Alliance Program members (developers and other partners that work with the BlackBerry platform) taking place on 30th Nov – 1st Dec, they will announce the winners of the BlackBerry EMEA Innovation Awards, taking the opportunity to celebrate the work done by RIM’s partner community and highlight innovative ways BlackBerry customers use their solutions.

The EMEA Innovation Awards 2011 consists of seven categories across both Consumer and Enterprise Solutions for BlackBerry. New for this year is the People’s Choice Award, a special category where the winner is chosen by BlackBerry fans across EMEA.

In support of recent launches, a shortlist of five apps has been chosen to highlight BBM Connected and BlackBerry OS 7 compatible features. In promoting these elements of the BlackBerry platform we hope to encourage our partner and developer community to find innovative ways to incorporate them in future apps.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus unboxing video

Samsung-Galaxy-Nexus This could quite easily be the most anticipated smartphone of the year. Just looking at the specification of the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus is enough to get the blood pumping.

This new Galaxy Nexus is the third in the lineage of handsets to have the Nexus name and follows the Nexus One, made by HTC, and the Nexus S from Samsung.

In terms of specification the Galaxy Nexus is definitely at the top end of the market. Not only have we got a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU but also 1GB RAM and 16GB ROM. Perhaps the most stand-out features though are the Screen and the OS. The screen is nothing short of awesome thanks to the Super AMOLED technology and the 720×1280 HD resolution display. This is also the first phone to have Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Check out my unboxing and demo video below. I’ve given you just a taster of the new OS and user interface here but will cover it in much more detail when I get to the full review.
