Sports Illustrated Now On Your BlackBerry

Sports Illustrated Now On Your BlackBerry

* Update from Kevin: We got a note from Polar Mobile, who developed the app, that clarifies what's going on for some people. The app is available globally but they were asked to list two versions in App World so that the app can be featured separately in different geographic areas. This is causing confusion that they will approach BlackBerry about to get straightened out. Long story short,...

SmartBBattery is a no frills app that gets the job done. The app works on all...

How Long Can A BlackBerry Last Under Water?

I'm sure there is no definitive answer to the question but the video posted over at BerryReview does indeed give you an idea of the durability of some BlackBerry devices. Two minutes of being submerged in a bowl of water is the abuse this BlackBerry took, but I'm left wondering if no buttons had been pushed or the trackball not played with would it have lasted longer?
