It goes without saying that BlackBerry gets negative press from media outlets and analysts, especially in the USA. We have written before on how some of the current state of affairs for the company is due to poor marketing, market research and poor execution.
We’re in Canada to take a first hand look at the upcoming Z30 launch on Tuesday, October 15, 2013. Telus will be offering the phone on a two year contract for $129 and off contract for $650. Are you planning on getting this new phablet from BlackBerry? Leave a comment on what you are doing / thinking about the Z30.
[Update: November 12, 2013. The Calculus I app can now be directly downloaded for all OS 10.0.0 devices and higher OS versions. Point to the following link on your device web browser: http://t.co/sor3hV5j4c]
If you are studying Calculus at the College level, be sure to look for our “Calculus I” app on BlackBerry World which we are making available for free as version 1, while we refine the UI for “Built For BlackBerry”, and add some unique social aspects to an educational app that will use a scoreboard, BBM Channels, and other features for “cooperative learning”. We’d like your feedback on the beta release. Are there topics for a first semester of Calculus that you believe should be reviewed that are missing?
With the Canadian availability of the Z30 on October 15, 2013, we will be making available our first Educational App, “Calculus I”. It will be free for the first 30 days, so students can study for mid-term exams, and then priced appropriately.
[Update: November 12, 2013. We’re celebrating availability of the Z30 on Verizon on November 14, 2013! The “Calculus I” app can now be directly downloaded for all OS 10.0.0 devices or higher OS: Dev A, Dev B, Dev C, Z10, Q10, Q5, Z30. Check it out for FREE on a new Z30!

Some love to share, something free for you! After the delay in the cross platform BBM launch, and as BlackBerry is potentially going private (sold!), we have decided to offer our app for free! It’s available for all BlackBerry devices including legacy devices and the PlayBook. There’s no excuse not to get it and be on top of some great recipes, entertainment, travel, technology and stock-market news with original photography and restaurant reviews. Get it here:
We will be introducing a new feature story line: “College Coder”– illustrating key aspects of coding an education app that we are working on. The project is led by our CEO, Fernando Commodari, with a college developer who is joining the ranks of our company and Blog, Zander Gidaro. Welcome, Zander! We will start by looking at the available instructionals from BlackBerry sources for coding an app. We will then document our own progress as we go to launch. We are also working on a new fun and original game. One step at a time, slow but surely, we plan to keep moving forward. We also acknowledge the support of BlackBerry in providing us with a Dev Alpha A Device and a new Z10.
