We really do have a hard time without using the word “BlackBerry” in a sentence without also using the words “dying,” “obsolete” or “time to switch.” But we’re also intrigued by how hard both RIM and enterprising hackers have been in running full-fledged Android apps — including the Android Market — on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.

It seems that in order to stay competitive with Verizon and AT&T (Sprint’s words, not ours), some changes are going to be made to several of the perks everyone on Sprint takes for [Read More...]
