In Pictures: 11 not entirely useless factoids about BlackBerry maker RIM

Trivial pursuits swirling around BlackBerry World 2012

What kind of a BMW motorcycle does RIM CEO Thorsten Heins ride?

We have to sleuth and deduce this. In separate interviews, Heins reveals he drives a red BMW motorcycle, cruising first in the Bavarian Alps and now in the farmlands around Waterloo. Based on a check of BMW’s Website, that would seem to limit the options to either the BMW Sport S1000 RR "superbike," or the BMW Roadster F 800 R, which screams more mutedly. Our best guess, for a guy in his mid-50s, married, with two kids, trying to turn-around one of Canada’s tech powerhouses? The Roadster, shown here.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
