Dieter normally posts the weekly Around SPE recap, but since he is in Barcelona this week for Mobile World Congress (lucky guy!) covering the breaking news, he left it to us Community Editors to keep you all informed. I don't expect to see much in the way of BlackBerry get announced at MWC, but if there is, we'll make sure Dieter gives us the scoop. Now for a look at the week previous.
In the world of BlackBerry, T-Mobile customers were happy to see the official roll out of the next-generation BlackBerry Curve 8900 this week. With AT&T said to be dropping support for 2G phones, there has been some worry that this new Curve wouldn't come to AT&T, but with the 8900 SKU now showing up on AT&T systems, it's likely the device will launch there in the next month.
The best news this week comes from the CrackBerry Podcast. I was in NYC on for a RIM Business Solutions Press Preview. While there, Craig and I recorded a podcast and for the first time had an employee from Research in Motion on the show. Joined by Mike Kirkup, Manager of Developer Relations, we tackled a bunch of topics from the upcoming App Store to OS 5.0 and whether or not Flash support will appear in a BlackBerry browser and more! Listen Here. More after the break!
