Editor's desk: NYC -- and BlackBerry -- bound

I'm sitting at the gate waiting for my flight to New York City where I'll be working with Kevin Michaluk, David Lundblad, and the Mobile Nations team on a bunch of really cool stuff we're hoping to tell you, and everyone, about really soon. I'll also be attending the NYC CrackBerry party, where the CB team will be celebrating the launch of the BlackBerry Z10 and the new CrackBerry redesign, maybe in that order.

I've been using the Zed10 (it is proudly Canadian, after all) off and on for a couple of weeks now, but I look forward to seeing how hardcore CrackBerry users take to it. The future by definition disrupts the past, and that always leads to as much frustration as joy. It's going to be an uphill battle, but at the very least, BlackBerry is back in that battle.

And if you're eager to see what Apple might have in store for us this year, don't forget to check out the new rumors that branched off last night.

Plane's boarding, see you in NYC. If you're at the party, please do say hello.
