The police pursuit at BlackBerry World 2012 – Video


The following text is serious but not nearly as serious as the high (I mean low) speed pursuit that took place at BlackBerry World 2012 between the QNX Porsche 911 and the Dodge Charger Police Enforcer. You must watch this video. It’s a classic!

In anticipation of the the unveiling of RIM’s new QNX-based BlackBerry 10 Operating System, there was a high intensity buzz at this year’s ‘Everything BlackBerry’ show in Orlando, where 5,000 developers, software and hardware vendors, and wireless carrier reps came together to see what the host company had to offer. 
Speaking for the first time as CEO at the show, was Thorsten Heins, who told the audience at a packed news conference, that “We’re here to win. We’re not here to just be in the game.” Heins and many other BlackBerry keynote speakers focused attention on BlackBerry 10 – a QNX based operating system that is so much more than just a smartphone OS. BlackBerry 10 is a whole new mobile computing platform that not only drives the BlackBerry PlayBook 2.0 tablet, but is also the OS for everything from medical devices to nuclear reactors; from commercial airliners to most of the cars found on North America’s roads.

BlackBerry Curve 9320 UK Carrier Prices

BlackBerry Curve 9320_Black_ENGuk_FrontWith the BlackBerry Curve 9320 launching imminently I thought it may be a good idea to let you have all the carrier prices that have been sent to me in one convenient place. There are not massive differences but some offers are certainly a little more attractive. The other thing to remember if you are picking up the new Curve is to not just go with the cheapest deal but to check you have good network coverage at home/work or school.

I have been hands on with the new device today and I can honestly say it is a massive improvement over the 8520/9300 that have done so well here in the UK. There should be no reason why our teenagers should not stay Team BlackBerry.

The BlackBerrey Curve 9320 is a beauty!

T-Mobile UK  will have the 9320 available free from £15.50 per month on a 24 month plan, or for £149.99 on pay as you go.

Carphone Warehouse will have the handset from free on £20.50 per month contract and SIM free from £129.95 in black.

Orange UK is pleased to announce that it will shortly be offering the BlackBerry 9320 free from £10.50 per month on a 24 month plan, or for £139.99 on pay as you go.

Three are charging a respectable £139.99 on PAYG. All in One 15 costs £15 and gives 30-day access to all-you-can-eat data along with 300 any-network minutes and 3,000 texts. Or All in One 25 costs £25 and offers 500 minutes, 3,000 texts and all-you-can-eat data for a 30-day period.

Vodafone are still to confirm prices at this stage I’m afraid but this post will be updated as soon as they let me know their plan of action.
