Verizon Storm Release Pushed Back to November 13th?!

Verizon Storm Release Pushed Back to November 13th?!

* Update: BG just posted a story showing that Best Buy is set to have the Verizon BlackBerry Storm in stock for November 16th. Keep in mind the actual walk-into-the-store-and-buy date could be one or two after that. What's that mean for the 13th date mentioned below? Could already be defunct, or could be that Verizon stores will have it for a few days first before it hits other retailers. I...

Verizon Storm to come with Trial of McAfee Mobile Security

Plazmic 4.6 Gets Official Treatment

Plazmic 4.6 Gets Official Treatment

Hey everybody,I figured I'd get this out of the way before Kevin comes along and steals my spotlight by showing you some nice new pictures of the Storm and whatever else he can dig up at the Developers Conference lol. I had a sneaky suspicion this was coming anyways - it really would make no sense at all if this didn't show up at DevCon. Now all you theme makers out there will have a...

Introducing Nintaii - More Addictive than BrickBreaker!

More addictive than BrickBreaker? That's a bold claim for me to make, but seriously, Nintaii is that awesome! As a judge for the Games category in the BlackBerry Developer Challenge, Nintaii was definitely one of my top picks. And seeing how it was nominated as one of the Dev Challenge finalists, the other judges must have had similar feelings toward the game. Here's the official verbage...

BlackBerry Storm/Thunder Name Game Explained!

BlackBerry Storm/Thunder Name Game Explained!

Storm? Thunder! What was the deal with all that?! Think back to May 2nd and it was right here on CrackBerry.com where you first read RIM's touchscreen BlackBerry would be called the BlackBerry Storm. When I wrote up that post I was so sure it would be called the Storm I even promised to give away my old Curve to a lucky reader if RIM's first touchscreen hit the market under any another name...

Another Vodafone BlackBerry Storm Commercial

Vodafone is really starting to ramp up the advertising on the BlackBerry Storm! I received a few emails from European CrackBerry readers today mentioning they saw the above commercial on television last night. It's similar to the first Vodafone Storm commercial we saw surface online back on October 9th, but it is a little bit different... And still tres cool. Big thanks to Adlen for...

Rogers: 2009 BlackBerry Lineup & $50 Pearl Flip!

Lots of tidbits here if you're a Rogers BlackBerry junkie.... BlackBerry Pearl 8220 for $50 - Remember that $50 Pearl Flip rumor? Looks like it's going to pan out, though instead of on T-Mobile it's $50 on Rogers on a 3 yr contract. You can check it out at FutureShop.ca (in-store special only)! The Pearl Flip isn't available on Rogers' website yet nor in Rogers stores, so whether this is...

AT&T Bold Training Slides and Oct. 27th Launch Date

I received a few emails this week from tipsters (thanks for sending in all of you) letting me know that October 27th is the release date for the BlackBerry Bold on AT&T. After having seen delay after delay and every release date prediction miss so far, I was reluctant to post on it. But tonight (good to see bloggers working late on Fridays!), BGR posted on the October 27th date and...

Logical BlackBerry Smartphone Speculation for 2009

Logical BlackBerry Smartphone Speculation for 2009

This isn't news. This isn't a rumor. This is just my Friday evening attempt at pure BlackBerry smartphone speculation (you could think of it as a loose prediction) based on logic and RIM's past precedent. We've already had a glimpse of some of these devices already, but in this article we're gonna skip all the codenames and rumored device model numbers, which to be honest have me slightly...

Gary Krakow on the BlackBerry Storm

Remember our pal Gary "the-BlackBerry-Trackball-Hater" Krakow? Turns out despite the trackball bashing RIM invited him down to that BlackBerry Storm Press Event held on October 1st in NYC. I just came across this video now, so figured I'd toss it up for your viewing pleasure. You can post your reactions in the comments (and YES he says it has WiFi and NO it does not). I actually stumbled...

Microsoft Resorts to Buying Off BB User Audrina Patridge

Ok Ok...we won't go TOO HARD on Microsoft for this, since they did donate $10k to Ellen's charity, but come on, we all know The Hills' star Audrina Patridge is a BlackBerry User and that she's not *actually* going to use the free Windows Mobile-powered smartphone they hooked her up with.  I commend Microsoft for the effort thought. From my observations when I'm out and about, it seems...
