3M Projector Coming to a BlackBerry Near You?

3M Projector Coming to a BlackBerry Near You?

Now this is cool. Everybody's favorite company 3M has been demonstrating a wicked piece of technology at CES in Las Vegas this week - a projector small enough to fit into a smartphone. One of our onsite correspondents sent us back some first-hand photos of this new gizmo at work (more photos after the jump). At roughly the size of a wireless earpiece and less than a half inch thick,...

Question: Does Verizon Hate BlackBerry?

Question: Does Verizon Hate BlackBerry?

Earlier this week a member posted a thread in the CrackBerry.com Forums entitled Does Verizon Hate BlackBerry? I think all of us tend to 'hate' our carriers from time to time (I know I was swearing to myself about Rogers a couple weeks back when I received my bill and had $400 in excess data charges...stupid iPhone use during the Smartphone Round Robin!), but it seems in the United States...

Or a land-line in Belgium for 1 cent/min...

SanDisk Announces the HUGE 12GB MicroSDHC Card

SanDisk has announced their new 12GB MicroCDHC card at CES. This is good news for berry lovers that are running OS 4.3 (we think hope this card will work with OS 4.3).

So for all of you that take advantage of your BlackBerry's media capabilities, this 12 gig bad-boy will be able...

Is it Called the BlackBerry 8920?!

Is it Called the BlackBerry 8920?!

Geez... I take a vacation for one week and come back to find I have missed out on all sorts of cool stories. While I was gone, James posted some leaked pics of a new BlackBerry device that was originally thought to be part of the long-rumored BlackBerry 9000 series. There was a lot of debate as to whether these images were even real or just fakes (or maybe a prototype that was found in a...

Review: Seidio 2600mAh Extended Battery for BlackBerry Pearl 8100

I imagine that if you are a regular on this site, you are a die hard…..a CrackBerry addict perhaps.  I live on my BlackBerry Pearl.  It is my lifeline, my calendar, my contact directory, my quick source to the internet, my music player and more.  Each day I lost count of how many emails I check and respond to on my BlackBerry, usually while listening to my favorite tunes.  Sometimes, I even...
