BlackBerry Javelin on eBay!

Wow... the trifecta. First a Bold appeared on eBay, then a KickStart (err.. Pearl 8220) and now an unlocked BlackBerry Javelin has surfaced. The prices seem to be going up each time around too...

BG is doing some fine work this week, now having posted a "draft" of AT&T's Press Release concerning the upcoming launch of the BlackBerry Bold.

A Smartphone Soap Opera: RIM, AT&T and the Bold

A Smartphone Soap Opera: RIM, AT&T and the Bold

Honestly, I don't even know where to begin in summing up this story. It's messy, it's ongoing, and there's a lot of bad acting - definitely a soap opera at its finest. The Boy Genius just let loose with his best take/understanding on the AT&T Bold and its rise to existence and series of launch delays. Here's the start: First and foremost, according to what we have been told, AT...

iDen BlackBerry 8350i to launch before Christmas!

BBNews.com just received word from a Sprint/Nextel Rep that the new iDen BlackBerry, the 8350i, is currently scheduled to launch on December 1, 2008. Sounds good. What sounds even better is the date dropped in the first comment following their blog post which suggests a November 2nd launch date. Either way, even with a buffer tacked on for the now-expected launch delays and this all means...

NFL Mobile Live from Sprint

NFL Mobile Live from Sprint

With the NFL season now under way, I thought the following was very appropriate. It looks like Sprint has released an NFL application for the Berry that might work on other carriers too. I should note however, that a LOT of people have had trouble getting it to work...The download page has links for the 8130, 8330 and 8830 (all on Sprint). So give it a try, but I will not guarantee that it...
