Review: PrimeTime2Go from QuickPlay Media

Review: PrimeTime2Go from QuickPlay Media

"Watch your favorite shows anytime, anywhere on your mobile device." These very words are taken directly from the PrimeTime2Go website. We first heard about PrimeTime2Go last month when Kevin went to CTIA. He did a quick video review, and the very idea of having my favorite TV shows on my device intrigued me, however the service hadn't launched yet. While attending WES last week, I was...

AT&T Curve 8900 Going For $199 on 2/yr Agreement

What's this? A pricepoint for the long delayed awaited AT&T 8900? It sure is... BGR got a tip on some upcoming AT&T device prices via their price sheet for the South Western region which shows the AT&T 8900 coming in at $199 after $100 mail in rebate. Nice price for the 8900 considering when I purchased my 8900 through Rogers it was approx $350 with a 3 year agreement!! Also, as...

WES2009: Secure BlackBerry Communication via MicroSD

During his annual tour around the Solution Showcase at WES 2009 last week, Research in Motion's President and Co-CEO Mike Lazaridis stopped at the Giesecke & Devrient booth to get an overview of their microSD product.

Capture Life with vPost for BlackBerry

Capture Life with vPost for BlackBerry

It's good to be a BlackBerry abuser. The connectivity I hold in my hands (or belt clip) never ceases to amaze me. You can be on vacation, out on the town or at a job site capturing video, pictures and audio. It's always nice to share - you might send it off for others to enjoy. Even the more advanced users know that this isn't instantaneous, especially if (for whatever reason) you want to...

BlackBerry Storm 9530 OS 4.7.0.141 Fails VZW Testing?!

This really shouldn't come as a surprise to any Storm owners out there who visit the Storm OS discussion forum but it does need a blog post mention. BGR has posted information on what was supposed to be "next official OS" for the Verizon BlackBerry Storm. OS 4.7.0.141 was destined to be delivered to Storm owners but at this point has apparently yet again failed Big Red's technical...
