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'.

Hey, Thom, were you using Windows Mobile PocketPC Embedded 2003 Compact Standard SP2 Ultimate Special Edition Plus, or Windows Mobile PocketPC Embedded 2003 Compact Standard SP2 Ultimate Special Edition Plus Professional? :-)

I've also been annoyed by Microsoft's plethora of name changes, when PocketPC was a perfectly good, well-known name.


It also better reflects the capabilities of smartphones, pamltops, and other mobile devices. They really are "pocket-sized PCs".

Of course, that would fly in the face of the whole "post-PC" crapola, if we all carried "pocket PCs". ;)
