There was no shortage of BlackBerry news around the Internet today. First we got word that RIM was no more, Verizon got dibs on the white Z10, and comes word that T-Mobile will also be carrying BB’s flagship device.
There’s not much to report in terms of BB news itself, the general reaction to the Z10 has been pretty ‘meh’ across the board and sadly the only announcement made that’s sparked any sort of reaction has been BlackBerry’s appointment of professional screamer and pianist, Alicia Keys, to a made up position. But if you’re one of the BlackBerry faithful AND on the fourth-place network, you’ll probably want to read the full press release below.
