Thursday night, April 18, 2019 at around 9:45 p.m. WIB, as usual, after arriving at the office, I was browsing several sites to find out about information and was quite surprised when I read the title of the article above. After making sure to the official website, the news is indeed true. Following are some screen shoots from the site https://blog.bbm.com/2019/04/18/time-to-say-goodbye-english-version/.
BlackBerry (BB) has its own nostalgic story for me. The first time I touched a BB device around 2008, namely BB Bold 9000 which still uses a trackball, belongs to a boss who wants to set up an email and activated BlackBerry Messenger (BBM). Indeed, at that time, from several devices that I had tried, only BB was said to be the most successful in push email services.
In 2010, then I first had my own BB, the BB Torch 9800, the current price was around 5 million rupiah. I have a reason why I just bought a BB at that time, because of the physical keyboard and touch screen in 1 device. Before buying the BB, at that time I still had the Nokia C6, which also has a touch screen and physical keyboard, just different sliding models. Mobile phones that use a physical keyboard when it still dominates compared to touch screens, so need a little adaptation for these changes.
PING PING PING, a sound that is very typical of BB, which maybe until now there are still those who use it in WA, but only P P P. There was no privacy at the time, so there was someone like 1 year waiting for an answer whose status was R, hehehe.
I am quite satisfied using the BB, until finally BB issued a tablet device to enliven the market from other competitors. The 16GB BB Playbook (PB) fell to me a year later. The reason I bought PB is because it can be connected to the BB, it’s quite easy to do BBM from this PB. I don’t know after some PB cameras were damaged, so it was quite disturbing and there was no update and support for the device, so I finally museumed this device first.
The following is the look of the Nokia C6, BB and BP that I have rediscovered after all this time, goodbye friend.
