BlackBerrius Maximus - Part VII - New Year's Eve Edition

BlackBerrius Maximus - Part VII - New Year's Eve Edition

Eenie, Meenie, Miney Berry... Which Should I Choose? What a year! 2008 will definitely go down as the "Year of the Berry" for me. My little SIM Card found a home in no less than 7 different BlackBerrys this past year! While much of the use could be classified as "professional," there was certainly a "searching" for the perfect Berry as well. So, let's take a look at the year that was and...

Today we received an email from Mike on the CrackBerry Podcast hotline (podcast @ crackberry.com) in New Jersey asking why there are different web browsers on his new BlackBerry Storm, and why he cannot download files larger than 5 Mb.

T-Mo USA Getting the BlackBerry Curve 8900 this February?

I'm not sure what's going on in the world of BlackBerry, but it seems the good 'ole US of A has (mainly) been getting the short end of the stick as of late in terms of getting new BlackBerry smartpones first. The BlackBerry Bold was released pretty much everywhere in the world this past summer, yet AT&T didn't get it until November, the Storm hit Vodafone a week before Verizon (not too big...

Twitter. Better than BlackBerry Messenger? The next SMS?!!

Twitter. Better than BlackBerry Messenger? The next SMS?!!

Of all the other site editors taking part in the Smartphone Round Robin, I'd have to say Rene gave the BlackBerry Bold and BlackBerry "lifestyle" the best shot, going so far as to even load up BlackBerry Messenger with every friend/colleague he knew or could track down that had a BB. He liked it. But as he pointed out in his final review, he was also scared of it in that constant connection...

I'm positive some of you out there use this application for a great deal of things and I'm pretty glad myself to see that it has been updated for the BlackBerry Bold. Yahoo!Go is what I would refer to as an "integration application" as it wants to be your one stop shop for everything and pulls it off quite nicely after many upgrades to how it functions. Boasting what Yahoo calls "widgets"...
