BlackBerry devices

Last week we asked the CrackBerry nation if you buy your device SIM free and unlocked or from a carrier, on a contract.

Still not sold on the BlackBerry Passport? Maybe these photos will help!

I know. By now, I'm sure a lot of folks out there are kind of over seeing just photos of the BlackBerry Passport, and would really rather just head on into a shop and pick one up. Alas, we still have a bit of time before that can happen. With that in mind, it seems as though the Passport just can't evade the cameras any longer and each day that passes a new set of photos appears or someone gets...

That means a developer has to listen for these touch events and react. Seems like a no brainer, huh? Well as a developer you need to know what code takes user screen interaction and turns it into an enjoyable and expected behavior. Obviously there is no way for me...
