There Can Be Only ONE - BlackBerry 7 to merge the Best of BlackBerry 6.1 and QNX?!

RIM is an interesting (and confusing?) spot right now as it's juggling operating system platforms as they push forward on development of the PlayBook's QNX-based BlackBerry Tablet OS and also work on BlackBerry 6.1 which will ship on the next generation of BlackBerry Smartphones. Beyond that the OS details have been relatively scarce and it has been leaving all of us CrackBerry addicts with...

Sears now taking pre-orders for the BlackBerry PlayBook

Although one of the emails that sparked off the whole pre-order launch madness didn't really pan out as stated, that doesn't mean it wasn't true in one way or another. Sears certainly had the best intentions when they sent out their previous BlackBerry PlayBook emails -- they just so happened to get the date wrong. Either way, folks looking to scoop up a BlackBerry PlayBook can now hop on over...

Where's my BLUE (or white or orange?!) BlackBerry PlayBook?

Where's my BLUE (or white or orange?!) BlackBerry PlayBook?

Back at the 2010 BlackBerry Developer Conference where the BlackBerry PlayBook was officially announced, RIM had both black and blue units on display (embedded within glass - click here to see our historic "first hands-on playbook" video). As a fan of gadgets that don't follow the traditional dark/black motif, the blue teaser unit gave me hope that RIM would launch the PlayBook with more than...

Ontario Finance Minister Dwight Duncan has a BlackBerry PlayBook

We're rather used to celebrities getting devices ahead of actual release but The Finance Minister of Ontario, Dwight Duncan, gets one too?! Craziness, I say. In any event, Mr. Duncan showed up to take part in the Ontario budget lock-up carrying the yet to be released BlackBerry PlayBook at his side.

A new way to display BlackBerry devices in stores takes shape

A new way to display BlackBerry devices in stores takes shape

We've all grown accustomed to the display units in store. They range from just a phone, strapped down to a post with a USB cable stuck in the charging port to huge monoliths that are meant to appear as big as the stores that house them. Beyond that though, the display units in stores are pretty lack luster -- not that they need to be excitingly extravagant but really, I'd rather see something...

The PlayBook's web browser should pull up your Gmail just fine... until the day (hopefully soon) that RIM rolls out the native email and PIM apps There is no doubt in my mind that the single biggest point of confusion and concern amongst the uninformed surrounding the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet is the sentiment that you need to own a BlackBerry Smartphone in order to use a BlackBerry...
