It follows the premise of other popular games where you have to perform certain actions for the lead character to do in order to collect items at each stage. In this case you have to help Bear collect the candy at each stage but more important the cupcake. The...

BlackBerry CEO John Chen lays down the law for leakers

BlackBerry CEO John Chen lays down the law for leakers

Leaks are nothing new in the BlackBerry world — they've been around forever and are just part of the game.

Until now, BlackBerry hasn't really made any public gestures against leaks or the leakers. CEO John Chen took...

Get Real Table Tennis onto your BlackBerry 10 smartphone

Real Table Tennis

We've featured our fair share of tennis games over the last year or so for BlackBerry 10, but not table tennis that I can recall.

BlackBerry 10.3 leak device codenames show handset development still a big part of BlackBerry

While many of us have been focused on the clearly visible things in the BlackBerry 10.3 leak, there are a lot of things in that OS that aren't exactly on the top layer. If you go digging deep into the OS there are quite a few device code names to ponder, there are assets for not only a 1080p device but also a 1440p device, and there are plenty of different specs to refer to. The problem? The...
