CrackBerry Returns? | BlackBerry 10 Fan Event w/ Flo Rida in Toronto

Blackberry is suiting up in their apple-bottom jeans and pulling out all the stops to make their BlackBerry 10 launch something to remember. Last night, the Canadian tech firm threw their highly anticipated Toronto Fan Event (with special guest, Flo Rida) at The Carlu to celebrate the introduction. Earlier in the day, the company also announced that they are using the opportunity to permanently change their company name to BlackBerry from Research in Motion. It’s re-branding time and innovation is at its forefront.

Flo Rida - BlackBerry 10 - Toronto

Here’s a confession. We at Dinosaurus Rex are former CrackBerry addicts that weaned off to other addictive mobile substances years ago. Call it patriotic attitude – we’re really excited to see if this new push will save the company that put one of our province’s cities, Waterloo (water-who?), on the map.

The launch was one of the best we’ve seen. Lots of demo BlackBerry Z10 phones to test-out and a station that showcased a new fun camera feature called Time Shift. The days of ‘business-only’ berry’s are behind us.

Taking advantage of the venue’s concert stage, Flo Rida gave a bright performance that wasn’t just a 3-song stunt. The set lasted an easy 20-30 minutes and the crowd was pumped the whole time.

At the end of the night, some random attendees were lucky enough to win their own Z10 phones!

Unfortunately we weren’t one of those but if we manage to snag one later on we’ll give you guys a thorough review to see how they stack up against Android, iPhone and Windows Phone 8.

 

Photos below! Rawrr.

I can’t decide if the BB10 is worth it. They haven’t showed the reason WHY i should change… only that the phone is…like an iPhone…

I have really high hopes for the phone – despite some critics. I think it’s got mad potential on the hardware and OS side. Let’s hope it delivers rich apps to drive it home.

Neat! I love seeing photos of the launch event – I participated in the setup for one of their launch events this past week and I was blown away by how great it all looked and sounded!
