PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless And so, today, RIM announced its Hail Mary - a brand new mobile operating system (well, sort-of new), as well as two new devices. In addition, the Canadian company also officially changed its name from Research In Motion to Blackberry. The first few reviews of Blackberry 10 are already out, and it's not bad. The problem, however, is that in the case of Blackberry, 'not bad' could easily mean 'not good enough'.

Apple has done naming a favour

"Windows Mobile PocketPC Embedded 2003 Compact Standard SP2 Ultimate Special Edition Plus"

That was an actual product name? Seriously?!

I'm really glad we have gotten to the point where even Microsoft have been forced by the market to be at least a *little* less cryptic than they used to be at naming. Windows RT vs Windows 8 vs Windows 8 Pro is not ideal, but imagine what it could have been... "Windows 8 Standard for Tablets (Home & Student Bundle Edition)" rather than just "Windows RT" comes to mind.
