    Hey community

    I just wanted to share a couple of moments of my recent trip to NYC. I went there for a week, and mainly did my traveling by subway.
    Firstly, I was completely stunned by the amount of BlackBerry phones in peoples hands. I saw mostly old devices, like curves and mostly Bolds, but also saw a couple of Q10's and even Z10's. I'm from a little town in Europe so this was quite the shock for me

    Obviously, I was also playing around with my Z10, sending texts, multitasking, hoping a little bit that somebody would notice the phone not being an iPhone or Android device. Then, it came. A very respectful young lady came to me on the subway and asked me "Do you actually like that phone?". She was holding an iPhone, and told me she used to have a BlackBerry Bold, but since she enrolled in Colombia, her friends pushed her into buying an Apple device. But, she still visits the BlackBerry webpage sometimes, and wondered what this new device was all about. So I explained a lot about it, luckily we still had to go a long way, and now she is also going to buy a Blackberry Z10.

    Mission accomplished, I should say!

    Cool, good job. I have done the same. It is up to us to market this cool device and OS. We will be the true marketing power to none BlackBerry users as they can question about it and get a honest answers.

    Plus we know more about it then the reps at the phone store who will most likely push iphones or android devices.

    Well, I guess it's down to us, because BlackBerry ain't gonna push it.

    That's a really nice story. It's nice to see people still interested in BlackBerry devices, especially the people who currently use another type of device.

    We are friends on Facebook, and she said she is going to buy one next week. When she has a question or something she will obviously contact me. She was very good looking though.

    A little off topic but next time your in the city look up the new York highline. It's an above ground park running on an old rail line to lower Manhatten. Great place to take pics with your phone and go for a walk.

    I can, cause my friends think the battery bundle is a clever gadget. And I have loaned it to some Android folks to juice their phones up. And 10-12 hours of battery life is not bad IMO.
