The other day I was digging around in a draw full of old gadgets and accessories when I found a few of my old legacy BlackBerry desktop charging docks. I loved these things and fondly remember using one with my 9700 all the way through to the 9900 before BlackBerry 10 hit the scene.
Thinking back to when BlackBerry 10 was first announced I vividly remember thinking how much I would miss my cradle where my BlackBerry would sit every night in bedside mode. Clearly, I soon got over it once I had my BlackBerry Z10, followed by the Q10, Q5 and then Z30, as I've not really given it much thought for a long time.
There are a few non official options for BlackBerry 10 - in fact we sell a Z10 desktop dock in Shop CrackBerry, but actually having proper BlackBerry branded ones seems to be a thing of the past. To many folk this won't be a big deal and to be honest, I've adjusted. Sure, it would be nice to see them make an appearance once again, but if not, I certainly won't lose any sleep over it.
With BlackBerry now having a new manufacturing partner (Foxconn) and a long term deal with them I don't imagine the option of desktop charging options is high up on the list of things for them to get right, but I was curious as to what the CrackBerry nation thought. Hands up who would like to see the introduced once again further down the road?
