The official release being offered is that of application version 4.5.0.77. Sadly though, the BlackBerry 8830 was left out of the update which seems to be the...

BlackBerry OS Shows Up On...Windows Mobile!?!

Finally, all the Windows Mobile users over at WMExperts can rejoice!! (I kid, I kid).

A refresher can be found on RIM's site. This suite has never made an appearance though... until now that is!...

Invertex From ThemeBerry!

The good folks over at ThemeBerry have been busy as of late. Invertex is the latest to come from them and in these days of Bolds, Storms and Javelin/Curve 8900's it's refreshing to see theme developers bring a similar experice to older devices as well. Invertex is a nice fluid theme, with custom icons, I personally have had this theme on my device for a while now and liked it so much I...

A Look At The Telus Storm!

Sure Verizon and Vodafone have been hard at work unleashing their versions of the Storm in the US and across the pond. But unlike the Bold launch where Canadian carrier Rogers (among many other countries carriers) had the Bold long before it made it's US appearance on AT&T, Canadian CrackBerry addicts are still waiting to actually give this device a whirl. The good folks over at...

Nitro Bottom Zen Now Available For The Bold!

This theme has me stoked. I remember when I got my Curve many, many moons ago and one of the first themes I had purchased (Renegade) was from ThemeBerry. Now having retired my Curve, I was wondering if I would ever get a chance to have that theme I purchased on my Bold. As luck would have it the guys at ThemeBerry reached out to me a few days ago and let me know they were indeed planning...

Instango 2.0 Now Available For BlackBerry!

One of the best things about our beloved BlackBerry devices is the multitude of options available for communications while using them. Everything from MSN, Google Talk, right down to ICQ (does anyone even use that any more?!). The only problem with all of these options, especially if you are a user of several messaging platforms, is that it means having to open numerous applications all at...
