    As the title says, I'm riding up to Alberta and British Columbia next week on my motorcycle and it will be interesting to see how many BlackBerries I will see. Here in the states I rarely see anyone using them...:-(

    Last week I was having lunch with a buddy from New Zealand who is here riding in the states. When he saw my Q10 he said..."Is that a BlackBerry? I thought they stopped making them."

    This will be another point of interest for me as I cruise around in the Canadian Rockies...:-)

    There are many in Toronto. Saw probably 20 at Festival of Beer last weekend. Mostly Z10s and Q10s...

    Can't speak for the West coast though.

    I'm on the west coast and I see tons. BlackBerry is still very popular around here.

    More than US but less than it used to be for sure.

    Probably a limited number if you are traveling in the Rockies. I'm in Calgary and see several on the train into downtown in the morning but the demographics are different.

    Hope you have a great trip, beautiful area that you are going to cover. Weather has been superb as well.

    Still a fair number of older BBOS devices in Western Canada. Probably quite a few more BB10 devices than you're likely to see in the US.

    Hope you have a safe and fun trip. The Canadian Rockies are spectacular!

    I was in Seoul, South Korea back in March and I went to the Octagon nightclub to see Deniz Koyu live and I was making a video when a guy asked me if I was using a Z10.

    I said yeah and he asked me how I like it and I said it's excellent. He then went onto tell me the reason he is asking me is because his work is going to give him a Z10 and he wanted to know if it's like the old BlackBerry's or is it better.

    I was glad to hear that at least some corporations in New Zealand are sticking with BlackBerry. But sadly I didn't see any other BlackBerry phones while I was in Seoul for a week.

    I live in Alberta and you still see a good mix of BB7 and BB10 devices but most of them are work issued phones.

    Recently I see BB10 devices almost everyday over here in Oakville, Ontario. A Lot of rich people here and they seem to know what's good. It's either iphone or BlackBerry really, only kids use androids round here.

    Enjoy Alberta, sadly here in Edmonton you're not going to see very many BB10's, perhaps a few downtown over the lunch period. Way too many isheep here :-(

    Well done. Koreans can be very nice conversationalists. Sure they're better than "the old BlackBerries" at the stuff that "normal" people want, e.g. media consumption.

    Ah yeah, and hub, swipes, Android capabilities, keyboard...

    ? BlackBerry? I premdict the future's gonna be chenomenal!

    I will be riding my 2013 Triumph Tiger 800. I'm so looking forward to riding in AB and BC as its been decades since I traveled through the area but not on a motorcycle. I will be crossing at Kingsgate and riding to Revelstoke. Over to Banff/Jasper continuing on to Kamloops before heading over to Whistler. I've will be camping in a number of Provincial Parks and motels for a few nights. Riding back into the states at Sumas as I want to avoid Vancouver. Beautiful city but I'm not interested in riding through it on my motorcycle... :-)
