BlackBerry OS 10.2.1 has been released. The biggest new feature is much better support for Android applications - you no longer have to convert APK files into BAR files, and can install them as-is. BlackBerry details the other, smaller improvements as well.

I still have yet to see any BlackBerry 10 device, which makes me sad - I'd love to see what it's all about.

The Playbook is a sad story. On one hand, RIM really bungled their update planning, not to mention the BB10 promise. On the other hand, third-party developer seem to have been disinterested in bringing significant apps onto the platform. The media didn't help either, fueling the anti-BB mentality.

I still use mine, and likely will until it stops working, since it does have useful apps on it and it satisfies my needs for it. I am contemplating a Surface however for my next tablet.
