CrackBerry Live Podcast 099: BlackBerry Z30, Jam Asia and BBM FOR ALL!!


what about the guys running webos. And the dude with the flip phone from 1999. Oh yeah, how come it doesn't work on my landline phone with rotary dial?

Yes! Would love to see BBM Commerce with banking, payments, money transfers, so your BBM Channels could be a storefront or BBM could be a way to pay for my Tim Horton's XL coffee, or a way to make a payment or get a payment to or from someone in a transaction of any kind. Buying a used car at someone's house? No cash. BBM money transfer. No wireless chip reader needed. Just both parties to have BBM money accounts.

Swiped with one thumb from the virtual keyboard of my awesome Z10!

Kevin, you had the whole audience in suspense with the box and teased the crap out of them at the sign off. Hilarious.


Now I am going to find it difficult to sleep!!!!

My Tech-Fleet: Q10; Z10; PlayBook; Surface Pro; Xbox 360; HP TouchPad; iPod Touch 5

It's not a mystery event because I an a few others are invited and we live in the UK.

If you pause the video just at the correct moment then you see a blurred image of a device with what seems like a Keyboard on it. Most likely that is a Q30?

If the results are indeed going to be really bad as you predict then the media hounds and the analyst are going to be all over Blackberry muting the the entire 27th Jam show - but probably the Jam would be over in Asia by then so that may not matter - anyway, the closing could be somber to say the least.

That would be real shame if he did that :) If you think about it, it seems logical to have the keyboard complement to Z30 which is currently missing - a 5" form factor with a keyboard - that would be just perfect (I guess, they can add in a virtual trackpad in there as well - that would be a perfect gadget for a lot of keyboard fans).

I guess the Crackberry Kevin is back - see quite a bit of upbeat change in you. What happened - seems like some sudden change - just shear bootstrapping or some recent change of events?

Also, what about the talk about being busy traveling to Asia and all that! Is something brewing on that front??? Asia is a big place so don't quite know which part of Asia are you traveling to :)

It is clear that you are skipping the Jam session for a reason - Crackberry Kevin wouldn't miss a chance to skip himself from being heard - is something larger more significant brewing - I guess all these questions will be answered in due course of time...
