Re: Email alerts available with Z10?

There's more control in 10.2, but even the 10.1 from AT&T has the ability to assign separate ringtones and notification sounds to specific contacts. A later 10.2, a 1xxx series build from what I've...

Re: Blackberry Blade, TK Victory for sale??

The Blade and TK were computer mockups by outside designers not associated with RIM at all. They are just pretty pictures.
