Hey, kids. Some of you may know me from my time at BlackBerry Cool, but in case you don’t I’ll take the time to introduce myself. My name is Douglas Soltys, and I’m the new Editor-in-Chief of Inside BlackBerry. I’ve been writing about BlackBerry® smartphones in one way or another since 2004. My first BlackBerry smartphone was the BlackBerry 7100r, but I have spent time using older models like the BlackBerry 7290 and even the RIM 950; my favorite BlackBerry smartphone is the BlackBerry® Bold™. I know my PIN by heart; I can text faster than you.
As EIC, it’ll be my job to make sure that all the content on Inside BlackBerry is in tip-top shape, providing an authoritative perspective never before seen from a BlackBerry blog. To do that, I’ll be relying heavily upon the knowledge and experience of my friends here at RIM, but also upon you, the reader. The BlackBerry community is vibrant and growing, and it is the goal of Inside BlackBerry to serve you as best we can. If you have the time, drop me an email and say hi. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the BlackBerry experience. Better yet, post a comment so we can spur some debate.
