BlackBerry Tour 9650 Visual Voicemail Install Files Found Online

Cignias NAO Symphony Music System Review

[ youtube video link for mobile viewing ] There are numerous iPod/iPhone docks on the markets these days, but there are very few options available for BlackBerry users to wirelessly stream music from their devices. There is of course the BlackBerry Stereo Music Gateway that runs off Bluetooth, but it has limited range, about 20-30 feet from the device. For me, that distance limitation does...

Snaptu For BlackBerry Updated To v.1.2.8

Snaptu, the widget-based application got a version bump up to v1.2.8 from the previously available v1.2.7.

BlackBerry OS Running On A Nokia 5700?

BlackBerry OS Running On A Nokia 5700?

I..really don't know what to say about this. It appears as though the above Nokia 5700 has been frankenstiened to run a port of the BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 8220 OS more specifically. Maxpda is the source of this unruly behaviour and as much as I am appalled, I find myself unable to stop looking at it. Well, best I can say is if it's a fake, they sure did the video of it in action quite well...

While we were waiting to see if it was just an inventory issue, it sure didn't seem that way considering T-Mobile typically just outright says it's out of stock on their site if it...
