BlackBerry confirm the sale of much of their real estate in Canada

It comes as no great surprise that BlackBerry are selling off buildings and land as part of their bid to increase their profit margins in the smartphone world. We've seen jobs go over the last year or so and with a couple of thousand less staff, it only makes sense for BlackBerry to make the most of the real estate that they no longer need.  As you'll see from the following press release they...

Oddly interesting 5-inch display for unreleased BlackBerry leaks out

Manage and organize client data with Produktyf CRM

Manage and organize client data with Produktyf CRM

If you are reading the title of the app let me clarify what CRM is — it stands for customer relationship management. For the average consumer you will probably have little need for this but as I come from a sales background integrating these types of systems are becoming more integral to help grow a business and interact with and retain clients. An example of such a system is Salesforce....

The top 10 games for the BlackBerry Q10

Q10 Games

It was the recent how do you use your BlackBerry 10 home screen post we featured recently that lead me to think of this one.

EE service restored after major outage

EE

A large number of EE customers in the UK would have noticed that they had no service at all on their smartphones last night.

BlackBerry PlayBook

A short while ago we ran a poll asking if you still use your BlackBerry PlayBook. To be honest - I wasn't feeling overly positive about the results bearing in mind that the BlackBerry tablet was first released in 2011 - which seems an age away now.  I'll be honest and say that I still use my PlayBook, but only from time to time. I tend to reach for my iPad mini most of the time for watching...
