It's been several months now since Nokia announced their new new E71 and E66 devices, and while the announcement came as great news to S60 and Nokia fans, Nokia darkened their day by letting them all know that BlackBerry Connect was not going to be supported on Nokia devices any longer. Nokia's explanation of course was that their devices and new email system they were working on (Nokia...

No Rogers Storm 9520 or 3G Pearl Flip on Q1/Q2 Roadmap?!

No Rogers Storm 9520 or 3G Pearl Flip on Q1/Q2 Roadmap?!

Rewind to Christmas morning and the blogosphere was full of leaked images from a Rogers 2000 Guide which clearly showed that the BlackBerry Storm 9520 and a 3G BlackBerry Pearl Flip were on their way for early 2009. Heck, even another image of the Storm 9520 surfaced on Monday. All good evidence that a Storm is coming to Rogers sooner than later. However, we've now heard word that gives...

Pro Gloss Theme for 81xx, 83xx, 9000, 87xx, 88xx

We got word from Zach over at Z Man Designs this weekend that his new theme Pro Gloss was ready to rock.  I quickly installed it on my Curve and have been using it the last few days.  All I can say is I love this theme.  I'm always in pursuit of new and unique themes - and this one of the best yet.  Its crazy clean and has cool colors, but the best part is the extra "icon box" that shows up...

Worldbook: World Encyclopedia for BlackBerry

Worldbook: World Encyclopedia for BlackBerry

Beyond our BlackBerrys, a world lays before us. This multi-coloured ball sits third in line from our sun. Our solar system can be found with countless others in the Milky Way Galaxy, which in turn, is found along with an unknown number of other galaxies within our universe. Wow, we seem pretty small don't we? Almost the size of a trackball. Despite our technological advances, which allow us...

Kudos to T-Mobile UK - Now THAT's a Commercial!

Crazy. Now that's how you make a commercial. Apparently this was filmed at 11am on January 15th at Liverpool Street Station. Probably a pretty big budget and a logistical nightmare to get this one recorded... though still probably not as pricey to produce as my favorite Shell/Ferrari commercial (after the jump for your viewing pleasure).  Congrats T-Mo UK. Great job! [ via MobileSyrup...

Sprint Love: Sprint BlackBerry Curve 8350i Review

When I was at CES 2009 in Vegas the other week I finally had a chance to get my hands on the new BlackBerry Curve 8350i from Sprint/Nextel. It's a cool device. When you see the pictures you think it's pretty much an identical form factor to the other Curve 83xx's, but in reality it's a bit chunkier/thicker. I wouldn't call that a bad thing though - it gives the 8350i a sort of "get work done...
