Antair Auto Email Responder for BlackBerry

Antair Auto Email Responder for BlackBerry

Despite what some of us want to believe, there are times when you simply can't use your BlackBerry. Whether it be an important meeting, family function or a romantic evening, the Berry must stay holstered. You fight the urge, sighing and squirming in your seat. "Well, I should at least let them know I'm busy," you think to yourself, "it's the polite thing to do." You sneak a peek at the...

PhoneWreck Wrecks a BlackBerry Curve 8900 and Likes It

I can't help but cringe whenever I see a new BlackBerry review pop up from the guys at PhoneWreck.com. There's a lot of BlackBerry Curve 8900 reviews on the net now, heck, there's even one, two, three greats ones on this site for you to read, but no review is quite as in-depth as one where the reviewer takes apart the phone bit by bit just to see exactly what it's made of. The PhoneWreck...

Lance Armstrong Now Trekking With a Curve 8900!!

Lance Armstrong Now Trekking With a Curve 8900!!

* Update 2: Definitely an 8900. It's weird that in the picture above that you can't see end of the main nav buttons (the screen looks long, like a Storm), but looking at this other picture on twitpic the chrome is definitely 8900. Plus the fact he's tapping in the middle of the screen and he took a landscape pic, screams 8900. Who would have thought this blog post would turn out to be so much...

BlackBerrius Maximus - Part IX - Function over Form

BlackBerrius Maximus - Part IX - Function over Form

It is an age old debate; form over function or function over form? Why can't we have both? Well, sometimes we can - but usually we gravitate towards one or the other. There are lots of classic examples of this debate; BMW or Honda? Armani or Levis? Timex or Rolex? You get the idea. Now, the tough question is: "Which are you - a form first or function first kind of person?" I like to...

A BlackBerry Fit for a President!

A BlackBerry Fit for a President!

Not bad for a Friday morning chuckle! With mainstream media really interested in the Obama/BlackBerry episode, leave it to The New Yorker to sketch up what they think President Obama's "Super BlackBerry" looks like. The form factor is old school - there's definitely some BlackBerry 8700 in there and gone is the traditional full qwerty keyboard in favor of Yes I Can buttons that power a...
