So… I decided to get a blackberry to replace my iPhone 3g. You might say it’s a downgrade, I got the Blackberry 8900 Curve, also known as the Javelin. It’s a 2G/Wifi smartphone, and doesn’t support 3g. That is a disappointment, but I will find a way to survive. The Blackberry has a solid proven design that has worked for them for many previous models. A physical keyboard comes in handy and the bb messenger is quit useful, since most of my friends have blackberry, which is a good thing. Blackberry is developed and manufactured by RIM (Research In Motion), a Canadian based company that developers business class smart phones.
I will also be developing for the blackberry since it uses Java as it’s supported programming language. The only problem is coming up with ideas for what sort of application I should make. All I have to do now is set up the environment to start developing on the blackberry platform. I’ve had it set up last year when I was in Mobile Programming class, but I’ve since reformatted the computer since the course ended.
