While we were expecting it to land on AT&T or maybe even T-Mobile before anywhere else, the device seems to be fully available through the Cincinnati Bell website. Nothing new from other carrier releases we saw as it still includes the standard fare including...

This can make things rather difficult, and I have spent many...

She promptly ditched her old BlackBerry and grabbed a new device (maybe she upgrades from the Tour to the Bold?) but I'd love to know just how many...

The idea behind this of course, is that many applications can now access your...

Blackberry 6 Overview (6.0.0.100) running on BlackBerry 9800 [video]

Last one for this round. So far, we've all been getting to see early release versions of BlackBerry 6 running on the BlackBerry 9800 and the BlackBerry 9670.  This release is seemingly no exception to that.
