Blackberries For School
No, not the kind you eat! This BlackBerry is an educational tool.
He wouldn’t say much about the PlayBook, a new competitor of the iPad, but David Neal, the technical expert for Research in Motion, had a lot to say about BlackBerries and education.
Research in Motion is the company that makes BlackBerry phones. His company gave a Blackberry Torch to every participant at the NBC Education Nation conference in New York this week.
He talked to Kid Reporter Kenny Figueroa about the Torch, which is a cell phone/computer with a touch screen. He expects it will soon be a necessary tool for students both in and out of the classroom.
The Playbook, which was revealed to the world at a press conference on the west coast yesterday, is still a mystery. Neal wouldn’t discuss price or functions, and he certainly wouldn’t compare it to the iPad when asked!
