A Bow To Blackberry



‘Once you go black, you can’t go back’. So goes one of the many hilarious sayings by blackberry enthusiasts. Even former blackberry users who have managed to cross the carpet to Android and iOS terrains are still secretly suffering from the withdrawal symptoms. I mean this is a phone brand that is still widely being used by world leaders and personalities alike such as Barack Obama, Angela Merkel, David Cameron and Eric Schmidt. So there must be more than meets the eye as to why it is very much held in high regard and endorsed by such a league of very important people.

The biggest advantage the blackberry has over other phone brands in my book is the fact that it embodies the true essence of a mobile phone. This is that their phones are built primarily as a communications device. The fun and gimmicks bit is still there but it comes in second. Narrowing it down to Nigeria, a big benefit of the blackberry with relation to internet data is the fact that you seem to be able to download the whole of the internet without having a care in the world whereas with another phone brand you get restricted to a limited amount of bandwidth a month.

– Excellent connectivity (Messaging platforms such as BBM, Yahoo, Gtalk and Whatsapp work seamlessly)
– Amazing email client (can sync with your business enterprise server)
– Most user friendly qwerty keyboard
– Very fast and snappy


The Blackberry Z3 is the latest mobile sensation from blackberry and it is presently only available in Indonesia. It features a large 5-inch touchscreen and a 5 megapixel camera with flash. It also spots a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1.5GB of RAM. Correcting apparently the biggest flaw of a BlackBerry, the Z3 offers a long battery life with a large 2500 mAh Li-ion battery. It is the most affordable of the range of blackberry phones that run on the Blackberry 10 OS, so fingers crossed that it hits the country sooner than later.

So if you are always on the move and have to reply to your emails at all times; love to always be in the know and up to date with information; need to constantly be in contact with family and friends then this is the one brand for you. Keep moving.
