I think all these press over Hurricane Sandy is a bit too much! Although a hurricane is a serious act of God to deal with and can affect lives directly or via infrastructure destruction … I honestly think that RIM should be at the forefront of displaying advertising of its strengths through concern.
Let me explain in point form:
During & After a hurricane, use SMS/MMS networks tend to get congested with voice calls
Carry spare wall & car chargers – a strength of BB/Nokia/android devices vs iOS.
Battery Life and deep sleep mode for networking!
RIM’s NOC for compression & efficiency of data, not to mention relays that will send when data is available, automatically! Android & iOS does NOT have this in either of their current form for: SMS/MMS, Browser links/pages, or calls (yes BlackBerry’s have a setting to redial when network is available!)
Just a quick random thought on this. I invite you to suggest yours to boost this post.
Cheers & be safe citizens
