SlickPool - Free Animated Theme For Bold!

Oh yeahh! Here is a nice animated theme for all you Bold owners out there straight from the CrackBerry Forums. Obscene has been hard at working making a great many themes lately but this one really stood out to me as I watched the video of it in action. Personally, I have never really been a fan of animated themes as they often times cause some lag on devices, but this one runs absolutely...

Howard Stern Goes Bold, Passes On Palm Pre!

Howard Stern Goes Bold, Passes On Palm Pre!

The shock jock of Sirius has become a BlackBerry convert. Long time Palm user Howard Stern is trading in all things Palm after getting himself a hands-on demo of the Pre last week. As an avid user of Lotus Notes only to be told that the Palm Pre would not be supporting the synch services directly, Stern seeked out a new passion for mobile devices and found that love within the BlackBerry Bold...

Bono Allowed To Enter RIM Labs?

Bono Allowed To Enter RIM Labs?

Ok so when the news first broke of U2 collaberating with RIM it was kinda of maybe we'd end up with some cool promotional stuff for our devices, but beyond that I personally didn't give it any real thought as it's no different then say Madonna or John Mayer pushing BlackBerry devices at their concerts. However, seems Bono wants to be more hand on as he was quoted by the Globe And Mail as...

Following up on the Magnum / Driftwood / Onyx specs, the net got a little excited yesterday when SlashGear posted a story saying they got word the 'BlackBerry Storm 2' is in the works for Verizon for September and would have WiFi this time around. BoyGeniusReport followed up the story a short time later, confirming that rumor and adding some more...

Sneak Peek: OS 5.0 Running on a BlackBerry Curve 8900!

Sneak Peek: OS 5.0 Running on a BlackBerry Curve 8900!

Last week when I posted our follow-up BlackBerry 9630 Review and took a look at OS 4.7.1, I made note that from what I had been hearing it appeared 4.7.1 in its current form on the 9630 would essentially be the same as OS 5.0 running on the Bold and Curve 8900 once updated (essentially, 4.7.1 will get re-labeled and become 5.0 at some point, as will 4.6). Well we can wonder no more to...

Meterberry - Diagnostics For Your Storm!

Meterberry - Diagnostics For Your Storm!

So I was "convinced" to use a BlackBerry Storm for a while. Skeptical at first - I'm slowly adjusting. As I was loading up as many apps as I could find, I stumbled across Meterberry. It immediately piqued my interest and I added it to my list of installs. Once I was fully operational I fired it up and I must say I was very impressed with all the information it provided. Now we all now...

CTIA 2009: Zeemote for BlackBerry Demo

I first saw Zeemote for BlackBerry back at the BlackBerry Developer Conference late last year when it was in its early stages. Zeemote will be launched this summer (first in Europe by the sounds of it) and will enable you to play BlackBerry games using the Zeemote JS1 Bluetooth controller so long as you have the Zee Key app on your device (which remaps your Berry's buttons and trackball to...

CTIA 2009: Shazam for BlackBerry Video Demo

Much to the delight of BlackBerry owners, with the launch of BlackBerry App World last week came the unveiling of Shazam for BlackBerry. Seeing as how Shazam is already one of App World's top downloads, this post won't be news to many of you, but if you haven't tried Shazam out yet for yourself the video walk through above provides a decent overview (for more info check out our original...

CTIA 2009: LogMeIn Rescue+Mobile BlackBerry Demo

Walking through the CTIA Mobile Focus exhibition hall I came across the guys from LogMeIn and had them demo their Remote Support solution for BlackBerry. This is more of an enterprise tool than consumer app of course, but the video is worth checking out just to see LogMeIn Rescue in action so you know what it's about. Having the ability to turn control of your device over to IT so they can...

CTIA 2009: SugarSync for BlackBerry

A crew from SugarSync was on-hand at CTIA last week, and they gave me a good walk through of their SugarSync for BlackBerry solution (apologies on the video quality - tried out a flip cam at pepcom which apparently doesn't work so well for this kind of thing). If you're not familiar with SugarSync, it's a very powerful and comprehensive solution that combines secure online backups,...

BlackBerry More Profitable For Carriers?

BlackBerry More Profitable For Carriers?

As we reported last week, there is nothing wrong with RIM when it comes to profit margins these days. Somehow, despite the current state of the economy they are not not only showing no sign of slowing down any day soon, but seem to be growing and thriving. But one question was raised over at Seeking Alpha which is something I have been really wondering for a while now. What about RIM makes it...

Yesterday afternoon BGR posted info they received on a few of RIM's upcoming BlackBerry 9000 series devices. While the "Onyx" and "Magnum" names are not new to the blogs, the "Driftwood" name is, and based on the...

Best of SPE, CTIA 2009 Edition

This week three of our intrepid editors headed out to CTIA 2009 in Las Vegas to catch as much coverage as we could -- and catch it we did. From the Palm Pre emulating the PalmOS to BlackBerry App World to Hands-on time with the Nokia E71x to hands-on time with half a dozen Windows Mobile devices, it's been a pretty crazy week. It wasn't all Vegas Baby, however. TiPb has been all over the rumors...

Bad Economy? Not If You Ask RIM!

Bad Economy? Not If You Ask RIM!

With the world concentrated on the state of the economy, RIM has released their 2009 and 4th Quarter Financial Reports which surprised even those within RIM as profits exceeded those expected. Revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009 was $3.46 billion, up 24.5% from $2.78 billion in the previous quarter and up 84% from $1.88 billion in the same quarter of last year. The revenue...

Call Client - Call Manager for your BlackBerry

Call Client - Call Manager for your BlackBerry

Last time I talked about SimpleLeap Software, we looked at their callback reminder app TalkLater. With that application, you can create call reminders using pop-ups, vibrations, ringtones or combinations of all three. It's a very useful tool, especially if you're like me; a hectic schedule mixed with a bit of absent-mindedness. The folks at SimpleLeap recently announced their application...

Here's what's new: Send any file via Bluetooth to any other device that supports OBEX-Object-Push (experimental). Once you choose to send a file via Bluetooth, BBFileScout is opening a...
