Hemisphere Theme for BlackBerry Smartphones.... Hawt!!

I really love the direction theme developers are heading these days, coming up with designs that are both useful and fun. It makes me wish RIM would take some time to develop some more lively themes to ship native on the BlackBerry OS. I'm sure the option of a fun "consumer" theme would go a long away with new first time BlackBerry owners. I also love the direction theme developers are...

Leaked: *Actual* OS 5.0.0.230 for BlackBerry Storm 9530!

Leaked: *Actual* OS 5.0.0.230 for BlackBerry Storm 9530!

Just over a week ago a hybrid version (homemade installer) of OS 5.0.0.230 for the BlackBerry Storm 9530 surfaced. Due to the non-standard installation method we decided to leave it off the blogs and just leave it in the forums for the hardcore crackies to play with. Now that an actual version of OS 5.0.0.230 has leaked for the BlackBerry Storm 9530 (standard installation method), it's good...

Leaked: OS 5.0.0.230 for the BlackBerry Curve 8330!!

Leaked: OS 5.0.0.230 for the BlackBerry Curve 8330!!

Wow. Now this is pretty huge. We've been wondering what the cut off was for OS 5.0... in other words, which existing BlackBerry Smartphone models would see the upgrade. First we had heard that devices with less than 128 megs of flash memory wouldn't get 5.0. Then we heard the real cut off was OS 4.6: Devices running 4.6 or higher would get 5.0, while those with less than 5.0 wouldn't get it....

The Tazzle IT can be carried around anywhere as it is smaller than most USB flash drives. You simply plug the device into a PC, fire up the application and you're...

BlackBerry App Center - Where Is It Now?

BlackBerry App Center - Where Is It Now?

It really wasn't that long ago that RIM was hiding the BlackBerry App Center under a shroud of secrecy. Details were slim, facts were not clear and everyone was left wondering what exactly was going on. Well, the shroud of secrecy didn't last that long and RIM began explaining exactly what the application center was to be. We all know carriers love to push certain items to our devices, some...

However, it does serve a purpose and fulfill the need for a flip BlackBerry device. Many users probably thought this of all devices would be the last to see...
