The new F1 W06 Hybrid Silver Arrow

The BlackBerry sponsored MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team ended the 2014 season on top with 16 wins, 18 pole positions, 12 fastest laps and 31 podium finishes throughout the 2014 season between Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg plus, eleven one-two wins in a single season which, broke the previous record put in place by McLaren in 1988.

Lewis Hamilton won the first ever Formula 1 Russian Grand Prix at the Sochi Autodrom that pretty much guaranteed the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS team winning the F1 Constructors' Championship for Mercedes-Benz, and finally, Lewis Hamilton claimed the FIA Formula One World Drivers' Championship trophy for the second time in his career.

Now, it's time to get back to work and as such, the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team has now unveiled its 2015 Formula One World Championship challenger, the F1 W06 Hybrid, ahead of the first day of pre-season testing at the Circuito de Jerez in Spain. The official opener of the 2015 season is the Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix that takes place at the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit on March 15th.

So what does this have to do with BlackBerry 10? Well, if you've visited the BlackBerry Beta Zone recently, you may have noticed the Kloudmix app as an available download and missed the fact that it's the first native Mixcloud client for BlackBerry 10.

Use this Spigen Magnetic Clip to keep your OEM Leather Flip Case closed

You may recall, back in December, I reviewed the OEM Leather Flip case for the BlackBerry Passport. It was not a case I was going to use again as I wasn't happy with it. The case was made with good quality but it was just a bit stiff that it didn't close properly and that was my main gripe. Even the fact that the case required you to stick it onto your Passport with adhesive didn't put me off. It was just that it didn't close. I tried to loosen it up. It helped to close it a bit further but if I opened the flip all the way to the back, to use the device, then it would just make it sit more open again.
