BBOS Version 4.5 - We Must Be Getting Close!

BBOS Version 4.5 - We Must Be Getting Close!

You know we must be close to the public release of BlackBerry Operating System version 4.5 because it seems users touting leaked copies are popping up everywhere on the net! I've always wondered what a big company's take on this is (I don't think leaked OS's just happen to RIM)... I'm not sure if they get mad, are indifferent and turn a blind eye or look at is a positive (but one that they...

Rogers UMA Details: "Home Calling Zone" Coming May 6th?

Since making that initial post, more information has presented itself (multiple sources - thanks tipsters!), and there is now no doubt UMA will soon be a reality for...

CTIA Wireless 2008: Follow us on Twitter & Flickr & Viigo!

So by now you've probably noticed the little CTIA Wireless 2008 widget at the top of the site that says follow us on Twitter and Flickr (please note we're working on fixing up the formatting issues with the CTIA widget as I type this - thanks for the patience).

Boopsie! Making Mobile Search & CTIA Wireless 2008 Better!

Boopsie! Making Mobile Search & CTIA Wireless 2008 Better!

I've only attended maybe a dozen or so big tradeshows in my life, so for me the excitement and novelty hasn't worn off just quite yet... I'm pumped to be heading to CTIA Wireless 2008 in Las Vegas in T-minus 29 hours. But as excited as I am to be heading to CTIA, the thing I have not been looking forward to is having to lug around the guide book I'm sure to receive when I register...

Verizon BlackBerry 8330 Curve Love!

In our last podcast we had a caller leave a message (a.k.a. friendly rant) on the lack of Verizon BlackBerry 8330 Curve leaked photos out there. Over the past few weeks many photos have surfaced of the 8330 on Sprint, but that hasn't quite been the case for Verizon.
