BlackBerry 8330 Curve Coming Soon to Telus?!

I love slip-ups and I love photoshop. And it seems yesterday either somebody at Telus slipped up, or else somebody who was bored did some photoshopping. Either way, the story hit the blogosphere, so I thought I'd toss it up as blog post of hope for everyone on CDMA carriers waiting desperately for the 8330 Curve to be released.  So if this it true, it seems somebody at Telus posted the 8330...

Accessory Review: Plantronics Pulsar 590A Bluetooth Stereo Headphones/Headset

A Great Wireless Headphone/Headset Combo! The more technologically advanced our BlackBerry devices get, the more we can begin to replace other gadgets and eliminate the need for multiple devices.  Now, I’m not yet ready to ditch my iPod – but I am getting closer.  Now that I have a 4GB Memory Card (and soon an even larger one) I can take quite a bit of music with me on the road.  My...
