Jul 07, 2012 Toronto Crime Stoppers launch BlackBerry app in hopes to fight the war on crime

Living in fear is something many face every day of their lives, the fear that they will become the victim of a crime. While the truth is that no one can ensure that we as people will ever be able live in a crime free world, there are people who are trying to bring that idea to that fruition. This week Crime Stoppers Toronto has officially launch their tips application onto the BlackBerry Torch 9800, and with more devices to be supported later. This application is no ordinary app, Crime Stoppers has stated that it's the first of it’s kind in North America.

With this new technology the user has the ability to:

  • Record a video or photograph for easy tip submission.
  • Find the nearest police station using GPS and receive turn by turn directions.
  • Check the status of submitted tips.
  • View Toronto’s “Most Wanted”.
  • One touch calling directly to a Crime Stoppers Representative.
  • One touch email composition to submit an email tip.
  • View Toronto’s “Crime of the Week”.
  • Connect with Toronto Crime Stoppers Social Media Pages.
The Crime Stoppers application offers the same options as calling into one of their contact centers. Your information is kept private and will not be disclosed to anyone at the Crime Stoppers team. If any of your tips lead to an arrest or advancement into the case you may actually be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000, help fight crime and get cash seems like a win-win. The application is available in BlackBerry App World for the BlackBerry Torch 9800, but keep checking back to see if your device gets support down the road.

On a side note, if you’re not on the BlackBerry platform you can also download the Crime Stoppers app for iOS and Android in their respective stores.

Seidio Innocase Active Torch 9810 and 9800

It’s safe to say that the more moving parts there are on a BlackBerry smartphone, the greater the chance you have of dropping it. Think about it; say you’re running to a meeting-You have your bag or coffee in one hand, and your BlackBerry in another. Suddenly, you get an urgent email from your boss. Unable to focus on the virtual keyboard, you attempt to slide your BlackBerry Torch 9810 or 9800 open to use the physical one. The next thing you know, you’re watching your Torch slip out of your hand and hit the ground. If only you had more protection on it.

Now a while back, I tried out the Seidio Innocase Active for the BlackBerry Torch 9810 and 9800. I was quite impressed with their CONVERT combo, so I wanted to check out something a little less portly. With a thickness of just over 2 millimetres, what kind of protection can it offer?

"With such convenience, the Powermat Wireless Charging System should be a standard for all BlackBerry smartphones. "

Powermat Wireless Charging System for the BlackBerry Torch 9810 and 9800

I am not a big fan of cables – I try to avoid them when I can. I have a wireless mouse and keyboard, I have a Bluetooth speaker phone in my car and I have a stereo Bluetooth headset for when I’m taking the heel-toe express. The one cable that seems to keep me tied down is my BlackBerry charger. I know, it seems petty, but it’s not so much when I’m half asleep, in the dark, fumbling with the charger and charging port. Anyone with extremely active kids knows that the less time you take to plug in your phone, the less time they have to do things they’re not supposed to do (like playing hockey IN the house).

That’s why I like a wireless charging system from the good folks at Powermat. No wires, just power and convenience. While not available for the BlackBerry Bold 9900, it is available for other BlackBerry smartphones, including the BlackBerry Torch 9800 and 9810. For simple charging in a not so simple lifestyle, Powermat is a must have.

To be honest, I'm brutal on my BlackBerrys. They've been dropped in the street and bounced off all kinds of floors. Needless to say I've gone through quite a few since owning the Torch 9800 probably because I am a chronic klutz and hate using pocketbooks. it's a horrible combination but I prefer having my device holstered on my hip then packed away in a bag. While it makes my load lighter it increases the chance of serious injury to my BB. So I went for the case/holster combo.

Jul 28, 2011 Smartphone Experts Pocket Pouch for the BlackBerry Torch 9800

[ youtube link for mobile viewing ]

I have not been exactly kind to my BlackBerry holsters. Over the short few years I've owned a BlackBerry, I've owned many; I even reviewed an excellent case and holster combo here on CrackBerry. And yet through one way or another, I've destroyed them all. "Normal Wear and Tear" has never met the likes of me. I've slammed holsters in car doors, rammed them into counter tops, dropped them from great height, and in general, abused the heck out of them. All of them protected my phone quite well, but no holster can withstand forever the barrage of abuse I can throw at it.

Not wanting to buy yet another holster, I began looking for other options. Then I found the Smartphone Experts Pocket Pouch for BlackBerry Torch 9800. It's a hard leather case designed to protect your ‘Berry from the dangers of life in a pocket or purse. Carrying my smartphone in my pocket means I'm not going to slam it into door or get my phone caught uncomfortably in a car's seat belt. Protected inside its case, I don't have to worry about keys, change, and whatever else is in my pockets destroying my Torch's screen.

Jul 17, 2011 BlackBerry 7 bringing an updated virtual keyboard to the BlackBerry Torch
72 Comments
Peek
Torch keyboard comparison Image by UrbanGlowCam

As Joseph pointed out not long ago, the virtual keyboard on the BlackBerry PlayBook is a little harder for some people to get accustomed to using, in part due to a different layout than that of the BlackBerry Torch/Storm virtual keyboard. As seen in a picture posted in the forums, the virtual keyboard of the Torch 2 9810 (and presumably the Torch 9850/60) will be getting an update with BB7, and will now look a lot more like that of the PlayBook.

What's your opinion on the change? If you're a current user of the on-screen keyboard, will this totally throw off your typing, or is it a welcome adjustment? If you don't currently use it, will the change encourage you to give it another try? Let us know in the comments.

Rogers officially discontinues the White BlackBerry Torch 9800

Out with the old and in with the new. That's likely what is happening here now that Rogers has decided to officially discontiue the White BlackBerry Torch 9800. While there is still some stock available, you'll find that you'll be hard pressed to get your hands on White BlackBerry Torch 9800 from Rogers. With the supposed 7 new BlackBerry devices set to be released soon, we've got a hunch Rogers will be replacing much of their current BlackBerry line-up with RIM's new offerings.

Though we've seen this OS before in leak and official versions for the BlackBerry Torch 9800,  we thought we should go ahead and let you guys know that AT&T has officially released it as well. I'm sure there may be a small group of you out there waiting for this from AT&T so if that's you, then here you go! If you installed the leak or the official version from Vodafone DE last month, no need to re-install this, as they are all the same OS. As with any OS, be sure to do a backup of your device before installing.

BlackBerry Charging Pod for Torch 9800

When it comes to my BlackBerry I am a certified addict. From the moment I wake up to the minute I go to bed my BlackBerry Torch never leaves my side. The only problem is that my constant use puts a significant drain on the battery. I'm sure you're all familiar with the utter frustration that follows finding a dead battery. For me I don't even make it to lunch. This makes me one unhappy camper.

To get me through the day I use the BlackBerry charging pod. It is the first accessory I purchase for each and every device I own. I hate to say this but I never go anywhere without it. At home it's either on my nightstand as an alarm clock or connected to my PC for syncing and charging. At work it's never more than an arm's length away to make sure I have enough juice for the journey home. I love that I can dock my device and spend all day listening to my music library or stream my favorite radio stations.

Gist For BlackBerry

It wasn't all that long ago now that RIM acquired the social CRM, online contact management service -- Gist. Now, here we are only a few months later and Gist has just announced the release of their BlackBerry application. While limited to just the BlackBerry Torch for now, Gist is available in BlackBerry App World for download. So, what can you do with Gist for BlackBerry?

Use Gist for BlackBerry smartphones to:

  • Search and view complete business profiles for contacts across email, mobile, and social network accounts; and add contacts from your BlackBerry smartphone automatically.
  • See your important contacts first, including easy access to contact info, photo, and social updates; share a link through email; or take a note to remember later.
  • Use the “Get the Gist” context menu instantly to build a profile or get a quick update for any email recipient or person in a calendar invite. 

If you're already a Gist user, then downloading it is a no brainer. If you're new to Gist, then you can jump on past the break for a video explaining the services and to see the app in action. You can also hit the source link for further details or just head on over to App World for the download. Continue Reading →

Tabphone by BBin

Whether you're getting a BlackBerry PlayBook or not, you've undoubtedly heard about the new gestures that RIM has implemented on the tablet. Well now you can have those same time saving gestures on your BlackBerry Torch with Tabphone from BBin! The top hidden dock is made visible by swiping down from the center top of the screen. A diagonal swipe from the top left corner shows your settings dock, and a diagonal swipe up from lower left shows universal search. You can access the applications screen by swiping up from the bottom, a media screen with a swipe from the right, and a social screen with a swipe from the left. This theme is really intuitive once you know where the gestures are, and it makes using your device more efficient. The home screen has a nice minimal layout, and OS 6.1 icons look really sharp with the red wallpapers. Tabphone is available on sale for $3.99 (regularly $5.99) and is compatible with the BlackBerry Torch.

When it comes to my BlackBerry, the addiction is so strong my friends think I’m Gollum from Lord of the Rings. However, they don’t know the whole truth as to why the device never leaves my grasp. I’m going to let you guys in on a little secret. I suffer from chronic klutziness. Yes it’s true, as much as I hate to admit it. When out with friends if something is spilled, dropped, or knocked over it’s usually me they laugh and point to first. To further embarrass myself, I’ve walked into fire hydrants, slipped on ice, tripped over my own two feet (those darn pockets of air), and had a nail go through the outer display of my first flip phone when I knocked into a stockroom door. While I may not look like Michelle Pfeiffer, think of me as the pre-Catwoman Selina Kyle. When manufacturers sit down to design cases, there must be a picture of me on the wall.

If you suffer from the same affliction, then you understand what I go through day after day. I live knowing I am my BlackBerry’s own worst enemy. Just take my 9700. The one day I didn’t use the holster, it flew out of my hands onto the concrete next to a pile of mud. So you can understand my utter frustration at the Torch not including one. What was I to do? The only answer is the BlackBerry Leather Holster. There’s no way around it, the BlackBerry leather holsters are reliable and fit perfectly by my side or in my pocketbook no matter where I go or what I do. The clips are strong, sturdy and don’t become flimsy over time which is exactly why I love them. Plus, none of my devices have ever suffered a fatal injury when dropped in the OEM holster. I’m a firm believer in showing, not telling, so check out the video above and pick one up today at the ShopCrackBerry.com.

*OS Disclaimer - Please Read: Keep in mind this is NOT an official release and as such is not supported by RIM or your Carrier. If you choose to install, do so at your own risk and only if you're comfortable in the process of upgrading and downgrading your device software. It is quite normal during operating system development for certain features to be crippled or disabled while others are tested, and these beta builds often reflect that. They are not always better. Depending on your BlackBerry comfort level, it may be best for you to wait for community feedback on a build before deciding to download and install for yourself or simply wait for the next official release. If you require support, you will find it in our CrackBerry forums via our extremely knowledgeable community base - do not contact your carrier or RIM for Beta OS technical support (their first course of action will be to advise you to downgrade to a supported OS).

18 carat gold BlackBerry Torch

If picking up a BlackBerry Torch in red or white isn't your thing, maybe you'll want to spring for an 18 carat gold one instead. This creation from Alexander Amosu will run you a bit more than the normal off-contract price however at about $12,000 USD. The mid plate of this tircked out Torch is solid 18 carat gold, while the rest of the pieces are colored in metallic gold. The unit weighs 38 grams and is available in yellow, rose and pink gold. You can also add diamonds to the design if you need some extra bling and every unit comes with a matching crocodile or python case (I guess plastic is so 2010). If you have a few thousand to blow and want to pick one of these bad boys up, head to alexanderamosu.co.uk for more.
