BlackBerry is the best selling smartphone in the UK – again!

BB Logo

We all know that over the last couple of years Blackberry sales have declined in some parts of the world, in particular North America. RIM have been under constant critism but here in the UK things couldn’t be more different.
In 2010 the BlackBerry was the UK’s best selling smartphone and once gain the Canadian company have done it again in 2011.
Nearly every teenager I see out on the street is using a BlackBerry and with the Blackberry Internet Service only costing £5 per month it is obvious why they choose BlackBerry. For your £5 you get unlimited BBM, email and web access. With the Blackberry Curve 8520 available from a little over £100 on PAYG this fits perfectly into the social networking lifestyle that most of us have now adopted and take for granted.
With RIM releasing new devices on a pretty regular basis and now with the choice of Touchscreen handsets, wonderful QWERTY keyboards and a combination of both on the Torch 9800 and 9810 I’m frankly not surprised that the ‘sensible’ UK people have adopted BlackBerry as the platform of choice.

iCrado Neo competition winner is…


Congratulations to the winner of our iCrado Neo Neo competition that Clove kindly donated to us. The lucky winner is @guitardeejay from the land of Twitter. Please get in touch with us so we can send you the prize.

The cradle is made from metal and is very rigid, and feels solid and well made. The colour finish is too of a high standard and rubber feet on the base of the cradle avoid it slipping on a desktop.

Rubber grips provide a soft and protective resting place for the phone on the stylish cradle and because of the cradles design it means you can dock a phone even if it is in a protective many others offer such a feature? What about docking it in portrait and landscape mode? Not many cradles offer this, the iCrado Neo does. Holes within the cradle itself give it a unique design but also help with cable management, keeping them neat and tidy.

If you fancy picking one up for yourself you can do so here.

You can see a video of me picking the winner below, just to show we are fair.
