  1. Hi guys
    Just found your site. Great info. I was wondering if you plan on discussing the new portable Wacom Cintiqs any time soon. Love to know your thoughts on them.

    Keep up the great work!!

  2. Actually Andrew, you have it very wrong about Blackberry. BB Consumer sales overtook Enterprise sales some years ago. In many parts of the world (Canada, Europe, Africa, Asia) BB was big with consumers for years. Here in Europe, Blackberry was particularly popular with teenage girls due to BBM. That isn’t so anymore, but from about 2007 to 2012, it was.

    You have to remember that the rest of the world isn’t just like a bigger version of the US. I remember an American colleague asking me about the number of colleagues we had in the UK using Blackberrys. Unknown to him they were all using Nokia E-Series (Enterprise) SmartPhones. Because he saw the world through American eyes, he thought they were Blackberrys.
