Will the A-Series go to market as the BlackBerry A10, Z15 or something different?

Will the A-Series go to market as the BlackBerry A10, Z15 or something different?

BlackBerry names - it's always been a fun guessing game. With the older BlackBerry OS phones, over the years the system for naming new models became a bit of a fragmented mess - Bold, Curve, Pearl, Storm, Torch, Tour, Style became brand families and a bunch of model number designations followed the family name.

Why you should change the default email signature on your tablet (especially for business use)

Why you should change the default email signature on your tablet (especially for business use)

  Yesterday morning I stirred the pot on twitter when I made the following tweet...

The One Good Thing about the launch of BlackBerry 10 being delayed until 2013...
