Saying Goodbye to 2011

Hear Hear

This year has been a true rollercoaster for BlackBerry users and addicts. RIM first tried placating users upgrade demands with slightly improved variants of existing devices with more memory. They then released the BlackBerry PlayBook which showed tons of promise but struggled to improve the OS. Then they finally treated us to a whole lineup of BlackBerry 7 devices with processors that doubled the speed of the previous crop.

Now reflecting on the 2011 that past I cannot help but think of a conversation I had with Kevin @CrackBerry over lunch in NYC back in late 2010. We were discussing 2011 and what RIM had in store for users and both of us agreed that 2011 was a huge transition period for RIM. Kevin was right on the money when he stated that 2012 would really be the year RIM starts to come back. Now at the end of 2011 it seems like this transition period will be stretching into 2012 but will hopefully start showing its promise in February. I am excited to see what RIM has in store for us and I truly hope they hit the ground kicking ass and taking names with a successful PlayBook 2.0 launch. There are so many different rumors I am hearing from inside RIM and the excitement seems to be brewing. Hopefully RIM shows us what a BlackBerry BB10 “Superphone” looks like soon!

I wanted to thank all of you for making 2011 an amazing year with record breaking readership on BerryReview. We got a chance to connect with you through the 2850 articles we wrote this year and the tens of thousands of comments. We hope you enjoyed the ride with us. Here is to an amazing 2012!

  4. I like BerryReview, it’s like getting that extra tip you really need to hear about BlackBerry.

    The idea for 2012 seems to be ‘look at all this you can do with your PlayBook. Now think about a phone that can do all that too!’
