    The local news guys are on top of it.

    If I recall, she was gifted with an iPod when President Obama met her in the UK. I am certain she is in touch with the state of of art in communications technology.

    Her PIN number, like Presidents Obamas, is a state secret.

    No doubt she's angling to pick up a pre-production model of the 9800 slider so she can check out OS 6.

    Of course not, and why would he? He keeps all of his music on his BB.

    If I recall the details right, it was the Presidents Daughters that came up with the idea and the ton of music and playlist when it was delivered.

    The President just handed it over....

    Well, the queen is fairly up to date... she has her own YouTube Channel and apparently plays Wii with her grandkids.

    Too bad I can't book a flight to Waterloo

    You can book a flight.. The question is "Would they let you in the front door"?

    Seems to me, the bright young minds that drive Research in Motion are getting some well deserved recognition.

    Not every day, HRH, The Queen, drops by for an attaboy.

    She's getting a Royal Tour? I didn't know they had CDMA in the UK. I'm jealous. It must be good with a red velvet battery door.

    The Queen, from what I've read, is quite into technology. She loves playing with her Wii.

    Rumour I heard was Royal Purple velvet. RIM and Seagrams have teamed up to offer a limited edition Crown Royal Tour. They're going to present it to her in the classic Crown Royal bag. Apparently, there is some speculation where the actual presentation will take place. The Queen is also planning to visit Manitoba, where the Crown Royal distillery is located.

    I'd actually like to go to Woodbine and attend the running of Queen's plate. I've already attended the races with HRH at Royal Ascot and this would make a cool companion piece.

    Just to nit pick... The Queen is not HRH, but HM.. Her Majesty. Everyone else (almost) in the Royal Family is HRH.
