Clearing Up The BlackBerry Javelin and Niagara Confusion

Clearing Up The BlackBerry Javelin and Niagara Confusion

Seems as though there was confusion surrounding the BlackBerry 9000 and it's lack of 3G-ness. Code names were being thrown out, one 'Javelin' and the other of course 'Niagara'. BGR has learned that the Niagara model is the EV-DO device scheduled to hit Verizon in May of 2009. Seems like a long ways away for info leaks to be coming out about it? At any rate, here are some specs on the Niagara...

The week is barely 8 hours old, and the BG is already continuing from last week on his BlackBerry news-breaking streak - if loose lips sink ships then you gotta think somebody at RIM must be starting to get worried.

May 1st marked the launch of a new beta program offered by Simprit. Some of you may know Simprit from their other popular program called GridMagic, but this beta is for their new media player program called MiuTunes, which I have to say is amazing at this point from my usage, so here’s my mini review so far… First off the UI on this media player is awesome, think of the UI of Flipside,...

Mothers Day Gift Ideas for the BlackBerry Mom!

Mothers Day Gift Ideas for the BlackBerry Mom!

With Mother's Day JUST around the corner (for those who have forgot it's coming up on Sunday, May 11th), it is time to start thinking Gifts for Mom. And while the trusty standby of flowers cannot be disputed for the "typical" mom, I'd argue any CrackBerry Using and Abusing mother would MUCH prefer the beauty and long-lastingness of some useful and colorful accessories for her BlackBerry...

The upgrade is planned during the "regular maintenance window" of 2am - 6am EST for this Saturday morning, May 3rd. Unless you're pulling an all-nighter, you should be ok on this one.

Curve 8330 Release Updates: Verizon, Sprint, Alltel

A quick update for those of you on CDMA carriers in the United States waiting to get your hands on the BlackBerry Curve 8330. Sprint: It looks like Sprint's Press Release saying the 8330 Curve would launch in April and the most-recent rumor stating it should still launch in April are apparently wrong as April has come and gone. Best thing to do here is keep up to date on our Official...

Touchscreen Apple Killer to be called the BlackBerry Storm?!

Touchscreen Apple Killer to be called the BlackBerry Storm?!

  It seems Research in Motion's in-development touchscreen phone, the one that RIM's engineers have supposedly nicknamed the AK (Apple Killer) may already have a REAL NAME: the BlackBerry Storm. Update: Sometimes you gotta work with the info you have! Since posting this, I'd say it looks like I'm 50% right. STORM definitely is/was the internal codename for RIM's touchscreen device......

BlackBerry 9000 Hardware Specs - Now What to Call It?!

BlackBerry 9000 Hardware Specs - Now What to Call It?!

Building upon yesterday's OS4.6 feature enhancements news, the BG followed up today with confirmed final hardware specs on the BlackBerry 9000. Nothing too new to report here that hasn't been rumored before, but figured it's worthy of a post as I wanted to Pose a Question to the CrackBerry Community. It seems whether this new device gets released as strictly the 9000 or will be given a...

Celebs, Magazines and BlackBerry Smartphones!

Celebs, Magazines and BlackBerry Smartphones!

These CrackBerry sighting scans were emailed in to me by James Jarvis... it seems when James was flipping through the April 14th issue of US Weekly magazine, he couldn't help but notice all of the BlackBerry smartphones that graced the pages (one of the first signs of CrackBerry Addiction!). You can click the images above to play Where's Waldo BlackBerry. It's no surprise to see...
