    It's called the DP Pro series and the standard colours are pink, red, and brown with a few special edition ones for those who like a collage or camo.

    No, not DP! The smaller hole is for the camera...
    But I guess if you enlarge it a bit, you can turn it into a flashlight. LOL

    It is made of a stretchy material so as long as it starts off slow, it can expand just fine to house that "camera". lmao

    Question: If this new phone has a refreshed BlackBerry 7 OS version 7.1, will my 9930 get an update to this?

    I won't be around the rest of the evening, but just wanted to say I've had some interesting conversations with Apple product users recently. I've been assuming that iPhone users are very unlikely to switch to a different phone, because they often use iTunes and other Apple products. I've started to question that for the following reasons (all of which are anecdotal).

    - Two users I talked to are upset that new iPhones use the Lightning connector, which is a) proprietary and b) requires adapters to work with older accessories. They were like, "if you're going to switch, go to micro-USB". They lamented that they would have to buy overly expensive adapters or new accessories. The looks on their faces were like, "yeah, tech changes, but would you believe they came up with *another* expensive connector?"

    One other observation? They liked the Z10 well enough, but more than being impressed with BB10, they were simply envious that BlackBerries and Droids had bigger screens.

    - Similarly, an iPad user loved his iPad, but commented that it was unwieldy to carry the Lightning connector and a micro-USB for the Zagg keyboard accessory.

    - Lastly, I showed the Z10 to an early 20's woman who was very impressed by the flow of BB10. She doubts she'll switch, due to being all Apple, but she commented how clunky opening Apps, switching between them, and closing them is on the iPhone.

    So, all anecdotal, and no one has switched from an iPhone yet, but I was surprised to hear iPhone users starting to lament being behind the curve on a few things, and feeling like they were being shaken down monetarily.

    I have had similar experience as well. But some Droid and iOS users are very loyal though.
    Last night I had dinner with a colleague who came from Harvard to give a seminar. While we were waiting for our wine to come, I showed him my Z10. He was completely amazed. Periodically he said "stop, stop, go back to the previous feature, how did you do that". My keyboard is set English, French, and Chinese. I showed him how I easily composed an email that consisted of 3 different languages, he was amazed. Everyone at the table were iPhone users, except me (relatively, in my circle of university professors I am just a kid, everyone was older than me).

    I'll bet that's one reason the magazines are going under. Sad to see things go away that you practically grew up with. lol.
