They note that the battery is a new design, FX-1, and apparently is only...

MLB.com At Bat 2010 Now Available for BlackBerry Storm

MLB.com At Bat 2010 Now Available for BlackBerry Storm

Here's one for the books - the MLB.com At Bat 2010 is now available, but it appears that its only for the Storm. A pleasant turn of events for Storm users, we QWERTY carriers are seemingly out of luck on this one (its odd to see the situation swapped and have an app that IS available for the Storm, and not for anyone else). I'm a huge baseball fan and was waiting for this app to drop, and even...

* Update - If you're looking for a little more proof that the 9700a is the Slider and that OS 6.0 exists, be sure to check out this 9700a UAProf document we found hosted on the BlackBerry.net website. It shows that the resolution is 360x480 (not 480x360 as in the 9700 -- see 9700 UAProf --... thus a slider portrait orientation) and shows that 6.0 is present. It also confirms WiFi b / g and n...

Review: BluePack S3 Portable Power Solution

Review: BluePack S3 Portable Power Solution

Power. For those of us who love and rely on our BlackBerry Smartphones, it's like air. Without a charged battery in our devices, we feel naked, unconnected. For some of us, the solution is an extended battery for longer life. Others prefer to carry around spare batteries, ready to swap a fresh one in when the current one gets low. I am out and about constantly, and not always near a...
