Review: BBSmart Shortcuts v1.4

So many buttons, so little time. The convenience keys are great, they allow you to open your two most used applications on your BlackBerry.

Thanks Virgin Mobile Canada!

Dear Virgin Mobile Canada: I want to personally thank you for making my day today with your "Sweet Life With BlackBerry" video. Most people think of Research in Motion as a relatively conservative company, and from observations made during my time in the smartphone world I have come to agree with that notion. I'm not sure how you got RIM's approval for the "Sweet Life With BlackBerry"...

More BlackBerry Javelin Hardware Sweetness!

More BlackBerry Javelin Hardware Sweetness!

* Updated Note: When I first blogged this I totally forgot about the device model name games that have been going on... I referred to the Javelin as the '9300' but '8900' and '8301' have been tossed around lately too (I think 8900 is now where it's at). I'll just refer to it as the codename 'Javelin' to be safe. My bad. Sorry about that!! * If you're not dreaming of the BlackBerry Bold...

I guess time will tell both...
