BlackBerry devices are still holding pretty strong in the Philippines from actors/actresses, reporters, and youth.
Here in the states you see a lot of people on television using an iPhone or Android, you'll notice on filipino channels like TFA and GMA its more BlackBerry friendly. This includes the PlayBook and the 9900.


Why didn't I see this post earlier? Anyway, thanks a lot for posting. We will have a speaker from RIM on our Aug 2 and 3 sessions. These workshops are actually in preparation for PinoyBBDev Hackathon to be held on August 4-5.


These operating systems run on an array of hardware encompassing devices like smartphones, tablets and music players. Often, market factors will determine the choice. It is necessary to select a target platform at this stage, so that the technical aspects of development can proceed.
