Worldbook: World Encyclopedia for BlackBerry

Worldbook: World Encyclopedia for BlackBerry

Beyond our BlackBerrys, a world lays before us. This multi-coloured ball sits third in line from our sun. Our solar system can be found with countless others in the Milky Way Galaxy, which in turn, is found along with an unknown number of other galaxies within our universe. Wow, we seem pretty small don't we? Almost the size of a trackball. Despite our technological advances, which allow us...

Kudos to T-Mobile UK - Now THAT's a Commercial!

Crazy. Now that's how you make a commercial. Apparently this was filmed at 11am on January 15th at Liverpool Street Station. Probably a pretty big budget and a logistical nightmare to get this one recorded... though still probably not as pricey to produce as my favorite Shell/Ferrari commercial (after the jump for your viewing pleasure).  Congrats T-Mo UK. Great job! [ via MobileSyrup...

Sprint Love: Sprint BlackBerry Curve 8350i Review

When I was at CES 2009 in Vegas the other week I finally had a chance to get my hands on the new BlackBerry Curve 8350i from Sprint/Nextel. It's a cool device. When you see the pictures you think it's pretty much an identical form factor to the other Curve 83xx's, but in reality it's a bit chunkier/thicker. I wouldn't call that a bad thing though - it gives the 8350i a sort of "get work done...

Corey Visto Droid 2.0 Theme for 83xx, 88xx & Bold/9000

No sooner had I written off my favorite theme designer did I get an email from Corey Visto of Visto Themes.
