That said, I feel compelled to play my part in the Viral PR machine and post this story of Paul Giamatti (star of the movie...

RANT: Not Much To Love in BlackBerry's Web Browser

RANT: Not Much To Love in BlackBerry's Web Browser

I couldn't help but laugh and cringe when my BlackBerry Connection Newsletter arrived in my Inbox yesterday. Inside is an article about BlackBerry's recent web browser makeover. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my Curve and am a diehard BlackBerry fanatic, but RIM really shouldn't be touting "You're Going to Love What Your Browser Can Do Now!" to the BlackBerry/smartphone using public. When it...

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...

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.

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...
