[ youtube video link for mobile viewing ]One month ago to the day I made a blog post here about the availability of Tank Recon 3D for the BlackBerry Storm2, which is an awesome first person shooter game that puts you in the seat of a tank as you go through various missions shooting down planes, AT guns, tanks and more. When I first made the announcement post about Tank Recon 3D I only posted a...

BlackBerry Adult Apps Roundup! (NSFW)

BlackBerry Adult Apps Roundup! (NSFW)

So here's the deal. As I type this I'm less than 48 hours away from my 30th birthday. I'm not too freaked out by the notion of turning the big THREE OH... afterall, age really is just a number and I'm pretty sure I act and feel like I did when I was 21. That said, just in case I wake up on my birthday and out of no where start acting like I'm probably supposed to (you know... a mature,...

BlackBerry Bold 9000 OTA Update Coming May 18th ... to OS 4.6.0.304?!?

BlackBerry Bold 9000 OTA Update Coming May 18th ... to OS 4.6.0.304?!?

We don't hear all that much about the good ol' Bold 9000 much now that his younger brother the 9700 has taken the reign, and apparently when we do it isn't all that exciting. According to this internal AT&T doc, the Bold 9000 will be getting and OTA update on May 18th & 19th. Sadly the update will only be to OS 4.6.0.304. I think its kind of pointless now to issue an update like this...

We first saw SmartBCalendar pop up back in October, and it has had a great response ever since. The useful app changes your native calendar icon on your homescreen and shows the actual day. Pretty cool if you aren't good as keeping track of what the actual date is (like me). Well the team behind SmartBCalendar has had some great feedback and is prepping version 2.0 for launch with some cool...

BlackBerry Addiction Shows Its Ugly Face On Episode of "The Marriage Ref"

Part of me didn't want to post this one, but I'm sure this is what some of us actually go through (on one side or another). BlackBerry addiction is a harsh reality, and while I know some aren't nearly as bad as others, we've all been called "addicts" at some point. Personally I don't see the problem with checking your BlackBerry while you're out to dinner, in bed or even mid conversation,...

BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider Heading to AT&T in June?

BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider Heading to AT&T in June?

This morning BGR dropped a post stating that the BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider may be rolling into AT&T sooner than RIM may have lead us to believe at WES. The device is rumored to be arriving in June, and since we know the Bold 9800 will be running BlackBerry 6, it makes the arrival of OS a bit earlier than many of us were expecting (RIM ahead of schedule... who'd a thunk it?!). During the...

Bell Flyers Show BlackBerry Pearl 3G Has Arrived. We Say, The Flyers Are A Lie

If you happen to be a Bell subscriber, chances are you either got one of these flyers or one will soon be showing up in your mail. The flyers Bell sent out today clearly depict the BlackBerry Pearl 3G and state that it has just arrived. Sadly though, if you contact any Bell store across Canada they will tell you politely that the flyer is a lie. The Bell launch of the BlackBerry Pearl 3G was...
