There is new hope for Blackberry but maybe not for me. At Blackberry World, the alpha developer device was released for developers to test new apps on. This is a gret idea from Blackberry to push for a more mature ecosystem for their new device come fall. And what a device it is! Most importantly, there’s actually a spec that is better than the competition out there, namely the screen. 1280×768 resolution on a 4.2 inch screen gives off a 356 DPI (FYI iPhone 4/4s is 330 DPI), which is fantastic.
I am still waiting for the one with the keyboard, but this is great news. It sounds like they are really putting their act together and focusing on what a phone needs in today’s market. I am still rooting for them, and will hold onto my treasured Playbook/Bold combo in the meantime. Really psyched for whats in store this fall!
Meanwhile my sanity is being tested by taking on multiple responsibilities as a grad student with two jobs. I am going insane. Slowly. I really need to amp my organization levels up. Also, I really need to do more leisure reading and less internet browsing.
