Well here we are, 8:3o on a Wednesday evening. I am now back at home in Canada after spending time with people who I dearly wished lived closer. Getting what I feel is the red carpet laid out for me. All over what was a simple BBM over when a fellow blogger was on a road trip. Turned in to a brotherhood and friendship that will last forever.
Let me start by introducing myself, I am Fubaz, also known as Ricky. Previous blogger and long time BlackBerry Advocate…. yes I said it, the word that is like a swear or tainted blood in this community “BlackBerry”. And this goes further back than any of the new revival that they have in place. This goes back to when many of YOU might too have been using the original smartphone. When the community was small and to have over 100 peopl eon BBM was a great feat, but now a modern classic as the multi-platform application keeps us all in touch. The singular sound you hear when you are out, and see everyone grasping for their devices only to see someone pull out a Note 3 and smirk as they reply.
Well that did not take long! BlackBerry Messenger beta that was recently released to a select group has just leaked out for all Android users! I just installed it on my Galaxy Note 3 and the channels and BBM voice are full functional!

If you are familiar with Otterbox products, you already know the quality of them. Yes, they do add a bit of bulk to the device, but in my opinion, it’s fine. I like it. It’s designed to do one thing, to protect your device, and it does a awesome job doing that.
Let’s take a look at what you get in the box. The defender is a three piece case, consisting of a plastic shell with a built-in screen protector. There is canadian pharmacy viagra a rubber skin that wraps around the plastic shell. It gives you a nice feel in the hands and you know it’s not going to slip out of your grasp. It also comes with a hard plastic cover that doubles as a stand that you can sit your tablet on so you can watch movies hands free.
This is the first time we have ever reviewed a tablet windshield mount, I must start off by saying we waited way too long to do this review. A huge thanks to MobileFun.com for sending us the iGrip Universal Tablet windshield mount for review. I have been using the iGrip for about a month now and I must say it is a must have for those of us that own a tablet. The iGrip is compatible with 7″ – 12″ tablets and can either be mounted to your dash or on your windshield. It is this versatility that has impressed me the most as other tablet mounts are typically windshield only mountable. I have used multiple tablets in this holder from the BlackBerry PlayBook to the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 to the Nexus 7. Having the ability to use the same mount for multiple tablets is great and is a must have for those of us on the go or with kids.

Ubuntu comes to the phone, with a beautifully distilled interface and a unique full PC capability when docked
London 2nd January, 2013: Canonical today announced a distinctive smartphone interface for its popular operating system, Ubuntu, using all four edges of the screen for a more immersive experience. Ubuntu uniquely gives handset OEMs and mobile operators the ability to converge phone, PC and thin client into a single enterprise superphone.
“We expect Ubuntu to be popular in
the enterprise market, enabling customers to provision a single secure device for all PC, thin client and phone functions. Ubuntu is already the most widely used Linux enterprise desktop, with customers in a wide range of sectors focused on security, cost and manageability” said Jane Silber, CEO of Canonical. “We also see an opportunity in basic smartphones that are used for the phone, SMS, web and email, where Ubuntu outperforms thanks to its native core apps and stylish presentation.”
Ubuntu is aimed at two core mobile segments: the high-end superphone, and the entry-level basic smartphone, helping operators grow the use of data amongst consumers who typically use only the phone and messaging but who might embrace the use of web and email on their phone. Ubuntu also appeals to aspirational prosumers who want a fresh experience with faster, richer performance on a lower bill-of-materials device.
The handset interface for Ubuntu introduces distinctive new user experiences to the mobile market, including:
- Edge magic: thumb gestures from all four edges of the screen enable users to find content and switch between apps faster than other phones.
- Deep content immersion – controls appear only when the user wants them.
- A beautiful global search for apps, content and products.
- Voice and text commands in any application for faster access to rich capabilities.
- Both native and web or HTML5 apps.

Ubuntu offers compelling customisation options for partner apps, content and services. Operators and OEMs can easily add their own branded offerings. Canonical’s personal cloud service, Ubuntu One, provides storage and media services, file sharing and a secure transaction service which enables partners to integrate their own service offerings easily.
Canonical makes it easy to build phones with Ubuntu. The company provides engineering viagra free trial pack services to offload the complexity of maintaining multiple code bases which has proven to be a common issue for smartphone manufacturers, freeing the manufacturer to focus on hardware design and integration. For silicon vendors, Ubuntu is compatible with a typical Android Board Support Package (BSP). This means Ubuntu is ready to run on the most cost-efficient chipset designs.
In bringing Ubuntu to the phone, Canonical is uniquely placed with a single operating system for client, server and cloud, and a unified family of interfaces for the phone, the PC and the TV. “We are defining a new era of convergence in technology, with one unified operating system that underpins cloud computing, data centers, PCs and consumer electronics” says Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu and VP Products at Canonical.
Canonical currently serves the leading PC OEMs: ASUS, Dell, HP, and Lenovo all certify the majority of their PCs on Ubuntu and pre-install it in global markets. Over 20 million desktop PCs run the OS today, and Canonical estimates that close to 10% of the world’s new desktops and laptops will ship with Ubuntu in 2014. Ubuntu is also wildly popular as a server platform, the number one server OS on the key major public clouds and the leading host OS for OpenStack, the open source IAAS.
