Won this Blackberry Curve 9320 from BLACKBERRY BARKADA VIDEO CONTEST 

The BlackBerry Curve 9320 may not be the BlackBerry Smartphone that is hitting the headlines at the moment due to it being a low end, budget device but that doesn't mean it will not be popular. The Blackberry Curve 9320 is not only a good looking phone but it feels great too.
One feature that is unique to the new Curve is the dedicated BBM key. This is technically just a convenience key but now has the letters 'BBM' beside it and by default comes preset to launch BBM when pressed. Typing on the Curve's QWERTY keyboard is a breeze.

Lumia 510 is a 4″ TFT LCD screen device with WVGA resolution powered by Windows 7.5 and Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 MSM72271 800MHz processor. At the low end, this device has 256MB RAM which has come to be a hindrance to many applications not optimised for low RAM. Lumia 510 has a 5mp camera, autofocus and no flash or nice names like Carl Zeiss attached to it like brothers up the food chain, but at Php 5,995 it really is a bargain. The 5 inch camera would take good shots in good light, but goes as far as that, low light and you get pixelated images, in the dark you naturally cannot take pics.The Lumia 510 is the entry level Lumia phone.
The Lumia 510 has a bigger screen than the 610, all the same specs of the 610 but without the flash and a smaller internal memory (which is not enough for me). Although now, it's upgradeable to Windows 7.8 so you can experience the resizable tiles like the Windows 8 phones.

Out of the box contents:

microUSB charger
USB cable
WH-208 headset


Height: 120.7 mm
Width: 64.9 mm
Thickness: 11.5 mm
Weight: 129 g

Display size: 4 ''
Display technology: LCD
Touch screen technology: Capacitive Multipoint-Touch

Main camera sensor: 5.0 megapixels
Power management

Maximum 2G standby time: 738.6 h
Maximum 2G talk time: 6.2 h
Maximum 3G talk time: 8.4 h
Maximum 3G standby time: 653.2 h
Music playback time: 38 h

Pros: Nokia Drive, Photobeamer, Live Tiles

Cons: The only drawback for me is the lack of apps and games support in the market, unlike the IOS or Android devices. I hope that it catches on. Microsoft also announced that support for Windows Phone 7.8 to 8 will end on 2014 =(

My BlackBerry Barkada Emblem Design

   I own a Blackberry Curve 8520. I know it's an old model, but it still keeps me connected to my social friends via Facebook and Twitter apps, I can also keep in touch with my friends and family abroad via BBM. 

   My IOS and Android friends keep asking me why I still use a Blackberry?

My answer is quite simple, my relationship with my Blackberry is mostly out of convenience. It fits my needs perfectly while keeping me connected to everyone, wherever I am. The Blackberry has the best and cheapest service that no IOS or Android can have. Try keeping connected with Socially for only Php300 a month or Php600 for a Complete Blackberry plan. Try topping that with your IOS and Android plans which could go over Php1000 a month. No matter what service provider you prefer, be it GLOBE, SMART or SUN, you are always connected to your friends via BBM.

   Just like having different models of a laptop to do different kinds of tasks. Do I really need a high end laptop if I will only be using it for updating my status on Facebook or editing documents on Microsoft Word? The only obvious reason or limitations my old Blackberry has are what keep connected to reality. It does what I really need to do, like typing a long email or message using the very reliable QWERTY keyboard, unlike the iPhone or Android keyboard that have typing errors frequently or that autocorrect fail. I can always use my laptop or desktop if ever I needed more power to do the task. Theres is a lot of little things that my Blackberry can do that seperates it from the IOS and Android phones. I can set the LED color for different sets of people like friends and family so I can distinguish who is calling or sending me a message in a glance without looking at the message itself. If another phone or smartphone can do anything better than my current phone, maybe I would consider switching, but preferably and still a Blackberry. 

   But, as of the moment, I am not able to upgrade to a newer model of the Blackberry Curve. Due to financial problems with the company I am working for, Our salaries are delayed by 4 months and therefore I have to wait until the Blackberry price go down, maybe next year when our company stabilizes.

   The most important aspect for me when it comes to using your smartphone is communication, and the is the one thing that I strongly believe that can't be beat. Sending an email, tweet or Facebook message on my Blackberry takes only a few seconds, and I haven't found any other phone OS that can offer me the ease of use and simple management. Clearly that the physical QWERTY keyboard has a great advantage over touch screen keyboards. I want to communicate quickly and efficiently and always rely on my trusty Blackberry. So I created this emblem that represents the 3 major networks inside a BBM dialogue balloon.

It all boils down to the fact that...... BLACKBERRY CURVE 8520 works for me, and that's what keeps me connected to my Blackberry barkada and family.

What is Angelman Syndrome?

Angelman syndrome ( /ˈnəl.mən/; abbreviated AS) is a neuro-genetic disorder characterized by intellectual and developmental disability, sleep disturbance, seizures, jerky movements (especially hand-flapping), frequent laughter or smiling, and usually a happy demeanor.

AS is a classic example of genomic imprinting in that it is usually caused by deletion or inactivation of genes on the maternally inherited chromosome 15 while the paternal copy, which may be of normal sequence, is imprinted and therefore silenced. The sister syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, is caused by a similar loss of paternally inherited genes and maternal imprinting. AS is named after a British pediatrician, Dr. Harry Angelman, who first described the syndrome in 1965.[1] An older, alternative term for AS, happy puppet syndrome, is generally considered pejorative and stigmatizing so it is no longer the accepted term, though it is sometimes still used as an informal term of diagnosis. People with AS are sometimes known as "angels", both because of the syndrome's name and because of their youthful, happy appearance.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

18 people worldwide are born with AS every day.

What are the features?

Developmental Delay, No or minimal use of words, Movement disorder, Seizures,

Sleep Disturbance, Light hair and skin.

Who does it affect?

It affects males and females equally. It is present in all nationalities, races, and ethnic groups.

Nokia Lumia 610 Hands-on Review

UI- Fast response time and can go toe to toe with any IOS devices. easy to use and navigate easily.

Contacts - transfer contacts easily via bluetooth. no need to use the PC, which is way better for me. 

Apps - installing apps is a breeze. and almost all windows apps designed and made for high end phones on the market will work on the 610. i recommend "VIBER" great app across all platforms and "CREATIVE STUDIO" for photo editing. Gonna try Nokia Pulse also.

Music and Video - adding music and video is way better than IOS, no need to convert any files since it supports a lot of formats and can play large video files.

Social - great People hub, integrates your phone contacts with your social contacts. Do everything socially with just this app. Best feature of Lumia

Display - at 3.7 inches, it's bigger than the iphone. Sharp images and video.

Camera - takes great pictures with autofocus, stabilizers, face detection and geo-tagging,  and records videos at 720p. I don't need to bring my Flipcam anymore.

Keyboard - easy to use and minimal typos. thumbs-up for me.

Internet - strong and fast wifi and you can even turn your phone into a personal hotspot.

Office Mobile - very useful for me, i can edit documents anytime and anywhere.

Multitasking - great for people who do a lot of things simultaneously. just hold "back" key to access running apps, and double-tap "back" key to close.

This is a great phone, Nokia did a great job and it already beat iPhone in China. The price is affordable for a powerful smartphone and can go toe to toe with IOS and Android.

This is my Official entry to Gadget Bonanza Blackberry Power Pair Edition 2

"How Does my BlackBerry Help me Achieve my Purpose in Life or Help me Become a Person of Purpose?"

My Purpose and My Smartphone

My purpose in life is to help others just like me, who have problems looking for work or having a special child like my daughter or having a lot of friends here and abroad. What better way to communicate to them wherever they are. Blackberry phones now give you a lot of options to be connected, they can reach you via SMS, CALL, CHAT, PM, DM and a lot more. We are not limited to just calling. I can take pictures of accidents or events and upload it instantly online. 

Now, I am using my smartphone to spread the word regarding Angelman Syndrome which incidentally what my daughter has., which is a very rare disorder and very few people know about it. I've tried sending a message to our government about it. But, I regret to say that it was just ignored. But the good news is that Angelman Syndrome Ireland contacted me and wants to help me spread the word. Now I have a few  Angelman Syndrome parents worldwide as friends. I'm hoping soon that the Philippine government would take notice of this effort one of these days.

The use of my phone extends far beyond making calls. I am always online via Blackberry Social Apps, I can access my email, browse the Internet, create word documents, take pictures, listen to my favorite music, and do just about anything else. My phone has saved the day on numerous occasions and has kept me entertained for months on end. Of course cell phones have forever changed our lives, but smartphones especially Blackberry Phones are the greatest development in the cell phone industry thus far.

My Purpose is to help my daughter and others like her enjoy a normal life.
