BlackBerry Bold OS 5.0.0.90 Found Online!

Well folks, with WES coming up in May it was bound to get out at some point in time considering it's expected RIM will announce the existence of 5.0 OS at the Florida event held by RIM.

App World Logo Gets Inked!!

There's no denying that the new BlackBerry logo RIM has been using with App World is pretty hot. I've even been rocking it as a wallpaper on my Curve 8900. But a wallpaper is one thing... running out to get a tattoo of it puts you into a whole other plane of CrackBerry existence. And that's exactly what CrackBerry member ivanmor has done.

Via the Dutch site Tweakers, comes official word via Alain Segond von Banchet, a Channel Sales Manager for RIM, that RIM's next touchscreen (we'll call it Storm 2 for now but that's not the official name as of yet) could/should launch in...
