In his spare time, he visits the gym and practices yoga to keep himself fit and focused. He also has a deep interest in the latest IT trends and innovations, as well, and is a regular reader of top tech publications like Gizmodo and Mashable.
Bhanu received his first BlackBerry – the Curve 8520 – back in 2010, and he’s been with the brand ever since. At the moment, this new graduate’s device of choice is the BlackBerry Z10, which keeps him on-track and organized during his job search. It was also indispensable while he attended University as well, says Bhanu.
“I used Docs to Go all the time to complete my assignments, mailing them out as soon as they were done” he explains. “The keyboard is great for that. Typing is fast, flawless, and effortless, and the Hub keeps everything organized and makes it really easy to reply to any emails that come my way.”
“I’m proud to use and support BlackBerry, and I’ll continue to do so as long as they continue to make great phones,” he adds.
