First BlackBerry PlayBook commercial finally airs!

[ youtube link for mobile viewing ] Finally, a week after the PlayBook launched in the US and Canada, we start to see some advertising on televison in the form of commercials. The focus of this 30 second ad is the portability and power of the PlayBook. I'm sure this is just the first of many commercials we'll see for the device, though I for one still find it a bit odd that it took so long...

Rockin' BlackBerry game Catapult! updated - Catch stars for free upgrades!

Rockin' BlackBerry game Catapult! updated - Catch stars for free upgrades!

One of my favorite time killer games for BlackBerry, Catapult, just had a cool update. The objective is simply to fling your rock through the air, and see how far it will go. There are targets you can hit which increase your score, springboards on the ground that bounce you back up into the air with a burst of speed, and sandboxes that will bring your stone to an immediate halt. The update has...

BlackBerry PlayBook Feature Request: Two Finger Bezel to Bezel Gesture to Power Off Display

I may not work for Research In Motion, QNX, The Astonishing Tribe or Teknision, but a good UI idea is a good UI idea regardless of where it comes from. And this is a GOOD IDEA and I hope RIM reads this and implements it asap on the BlackBerry PlayBook.  Without contention, the least liked hardware feature of the BlackBerry PlayBook is the power button (see our BlackBerry PlayBook Review). It...

BlackBerry monza coming to T-Mobile June 29th?!

We're just little under a week away from the start of BlackBerry World in Orlando, Florida and while we're expecting to hear quite a bit about the PlayBook but we'd be lying if we didn't say we're just a little bit more excited to hear about some new BlackBerry Smartphones. Since the BlackBerry 2011 roadmap showed up, we've been wondering when we'd see the new smartphones come to market -- and...

I couldn't wait for themes to be available for my 9670 and was checking the forums every day in hopes of some to try. When they did start rolling out, I was ecstatic. That is until I saw the prices on some of the themes. As often...
