Welcome to the real world. Sure, there are plenty of early BlackBerry 10 mobile device reviews being posted up. Fancy test labs are dissecting and reverse engineering the hottest mobile device on the market. However, at SMB Nation, we’re taking our testing the streets and have been giving the product a real world test.

Home Field Advantage
BlackBerry is the company we all want to be. It has a huge loyal customer base that’s simply needed a reason to stay. The BlackBerry 10 *is* that reason. It brings the most modern mobile device (more power than many computers) to existing and new customers. BlackBerry has also built a loyal following amongst the SMB 150 award winners. Last year, every winner received a BlackBerry PlayBook. This year, in 2013, everyone received a BlackBerry 10 mobile device (watch the awards here: http://youtu.be/-o-iFg6Cb4c ). How cool is that? How BlackBerry is that?
My 14YO son, Harry Jr., has led our testing efforts. He “LIKES” the device in the classic Facebook sense. He is putting the “10” to a test inside, outdoors, sailing, skiing and much more. In this interview, Harry rattled off several observations about using the BlackBerry Z10 to-date: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3r8PyL2MO1A
There will be follow-up reports with this installment over the next few months.
But Wait, there’s More!
