BlackBerry Leap Review!

Although it feels like only last week I was writing a post announcing the device, in reality it wasn't. It was well over a month ago now at Mobile World Congress but, thanks to a quick turnaround time from announcement to delivery, here we are taking a look at the latest all-touch BlackBerry 10 smartphone introduced to the world as the BlackBerry Leap, which starts rolling out globally today.

Table-Top-Racing-Hero

It's been a while since Amazon have had a 'free app of the day' that I've felt compelled to share with you. That changed today when I saw that they were featuring Table Top Racing. It's not a game that I've played before, but I'm a sucker for this style, so I grabbed my BlackBerry Z30 and downloaded it with haste.

EE-Passport-Hero

Possibly a harsh title, but as far as I can see it must be true, looking at the evidence. The guilty party is EE. Don't get me wrong - I'm a fan of the company, in fact I'm a customer and have no plans to change that. But it frustrates me how I see them either not offering BlackBerry smartphones as an option to customers - or pricing them so high that it makes sense to choose another device.
