BlackBerry-sponsored John Mayer Tour Website

BlackBerry-sponsored John Mayer Tour Website

Back on April 7th we dropped word that RIM/BlackBerry decided to sponsor John Mayer's summer tour again in 2008 after the success they had in sponsoring it last year. This morning I found out (thanks Ronen) that RIM has launched a microsite for the tour at johnmayer.blackberry.com. On it you can find all of the concert dates (July 2nd to August 2nd), John Mayer's BlackBerry Tips, and links...

Review: Aliph Jawbone2 Bluetooth Headset

Review: Aliph Jawbone2 Bluetooth Headset

About a year or so ago I was able to review the original Aliph Jawbone Headset. At that time, I said "This is the best Bluetooth Headset I have ever used." The only other headset that even came close was the BlueAnt z9 - but the Jawbone was the winner - for lots of reasons. My only gripe at that time was with the size and "comfort" of the Jawbone. It was big (relative to the Z9 and...

Apple Gives Rogers a Big Thumbs Down... Good News for BlackBerry Users in the Long Run?

I'm sure you've all heard now of the gouging that Rogers is offering up to potential iPhone users in Canada. Their current pricing structure has sparked compaints all over the web, including an online petition, 'RuinediPhone.com' (Check it out... last I checked the petition was closing in on 50,000 signatures). Apple has apparently informed Rogers that they will divert a 'large percentage'...

Our friends at BBNews are calling on a July 21st launch date for the BlackBerry Bold on T-Mobile Germany. Off contract price is said to be 550 Euros (~$860USD).

BlackBerry KickStart to sell on T-Mobile for $49.99?!

You may want to take this news with a grain of salt. I know the first time I heard this information I was skeptical. Then I heard it again, and again and again.

So to the best of my knowledge... the BlackBerry KickStart will sell on T-...

Indian Government Backing Down on Security Issue?

Indian Government Backing Down on Security Issue?

Color me confused. The latest in the Indian Government vs. RIM standoff has me puzzled beyond belief. The Indian Government has now stated that 'There is no threat from BlackBerry services'... And when asked if the Indian Government would give approval to companies that have applied to use BlackBerry services the Government responded: 'There is no permission needed for starting value added...

Review: Swiss Mobility Lara Side Pouch for BlackBerry Pearl

Review: Swiss Mobility Lara Side Pouch for BlackBerry Pearl

And now for something completely different… To start, I’d like to thank my Wife for helping me with the review for this case, as it’s more her style than mine. She’s been searching high and low for a case that offers a little more style and femininity. When she recently decided to cross over to the dark side and join the BlackBerry ranks, she was less than impressed with the BlackBerry...
