The Astonishing Tribe (TAT) is, well, astonishing. In that it’s a global company with teams of visual designers and UI experts. Never heard of them? You should if you’re an Android user.
It’s no secret that I’m a BlackBerry skeptic with its much-hyped PlayBook tablet and yawn-inducing smartphone designs. However, with the acquisition of QNX and now TAT, perhaps RIM is on its way to recovery after admitting it has a real problem and will now address it.
A very bold and good move, in my opinion. The PlayBook doesn’t do much for me, but knowing that TAT will now be involved in the process actually makes it a product to look forward to.
