Handy OS4.5 Discovery! Radio Works Until 0%

Handy OS4.5 Discovery! Radio Works Until 0%

I just read this discovery (it was new to me anyway!) that Ronen posted over at BerryReview. It turns out that OS4.5 does a better job of managing the way battery life is displayed on your BlackBerry. Think back to your BB usage... have you ever had a time where your battery indicator shows some juice left, but the device has decided that the Battery is too low for radio use?? I know it's...

BlackBerry vs. iPhone, or East Coast vs. West?

BlackBerry vs. iPhone, or East Coast vs. West?

California's CNET says the touchscreen BlackBerry isn't even close to touching the iPhone, while New York's InformationWeek takes little notice of the "baby steps" the much-touted 3G iPhone has taken in usurping the King of email. Is the nation split? Will roving bands of turtleneck-wearing, jean-clad hipsters storm out of San Francisco to take the New York business district in force, or will...

Rogers News: BlackBerry Bold for $299 on 3yr Contract

Rogers News: BlackBerry Bold for $299 on 3yr Contract

Our buds over at BlackBerry Cool published some intel last week that put the Bold's pricing on Rogers at a shockingly low $199. New info now suggests that it will likely cost you $299 big ones on a 3yr contract to become an owner of RIM's latest BlackBerry smartphone. $199 would be sweet, but the $299 number sounds more likely and still sounds good to me. Actually, I think it sounds really...
