I know it will start a discussion, so here you have it.
A few weeks ago I decided to tweet on Twitter that I was ready for the BlackBerry Hub for the PC, and the responses were not long in coming. Part for and part against, but my mind has not changed. I think that for BlackBerry to release a web version to a computer (like BBM Desktop), there can be meaning in the branding and especially the Hub.

The BlackBerry Hub is undoubtedly one of the best tools I work with on my mobile device, and in fact I do not see myself using a device that does not contain the Hub as it is today. It began with the BBOS days, where the hub was introduced in an initial version and still not polished, and then on to the BlackBerry 10, where Hub was the diamond within the OS.
For me today when I come from a day of work (I work with a separate organizational email) I go to my computer and use Outlook, which is a great program, but I do not have all of my activities, but only the mailboxes. How much I would love to be able to scan a QR code I can connect the Hub from my BlackBerry (or any other Android) and get all the notifications / alerts even to my laptop.
In fact it will reduce the time when I have to skip between sites to check if I have new messages. If the Hub alerts me, I will know about it. It should work in this way, the Hub on PC alerts just like the device (and even in the same graphic form of the application) and opens the right site or to enter the mailbox or even activate the BBM Desktop if the alert is for BBM.
One place that puts you anywhere easily, it would undoubtedly improve my efficiency. In this way, BlackBerry can differentiate itself from competitors and continue to grow and upgrade the capabilities and ideas on which BlackBerry has built the Hub in the first place.
A web version of the Hub will also reduce the time spent on a mobile device while you are at home, which is certainly a good thing.
What do you think?
