The BlackBerry Storm name just became a LOT more official. Engadget scored a sweet image of the actual BOX the Verizon BlackBerry 9530 is going to ship in. How do you like that for a leaked pic?!

Palm Treo Pro Video Unboxing and Hardware Comparisons

What?! A non-BlackBerry video unboxing at CrackBerry.com?! Yeah.. that's right. We do have a blog post category here called "Berry-Free Talk" that we post in from time to time and I thought this video would be a good fit for the CB blogs for a couple of reasons: one, we have a TON of members and readers who used to be Palm Treo owners (remember this article?) and two, it seems with the Treo...

"Classic Video Game Theme" is Frak'n Awesome!

Wow. This new theme by CSDesigns just made my week and it's only Monday morning. At $9.99 the "Classic Video Game Theme" (hrmm... Mario theme?!) is definitely expensive as far as Premium BlackBerry themes go, but after installing it and decking out my Curve with free Mario ringtones I'd argue the total experience is well worth it. It's Old School Cool and then some. Here's the official...

Review: SwooshPhotos for Blackberry

The other day I was out with a good friend who is a photographer and happens to be a <gasp> iPhone user.  He was showing me some of his latest work using the Camera Roll on his device.  I must say I was impressed with the ease of use.  The ability to just load up his photos and scroll through was awesome.  It made me a bit jealous of the "sharing ability" of my photos on my 8330. ...

Rogers BlackBerry Bold 9000 Video Unboxing

Rogers and RIM sure never made it easy for BlackBerry loyalists and fans to track down the Rogers BlackBerry Bold 9000 in its first few days of availability.
