Live at CES: BlackBerry Pearl in Pink

Live at CES: BlackBerry Pearl in Pink

SPE's resident smartphone genius Dieter is down at CES covering the show for us (and PhoneDifferent, TreoCentral AND WMExperts!). He just sent me some snaps of the Pearl 8130... in Pink and Red. Not my style, but I can imagine there are some members out there that will be clammering for this one? Yes? We've got some great hi-res pics for you to check out after the jump... And best of all,...

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...

BlackBerry 9000 Pics Leaked?

BlackBerry 9000 Pics Leaked?

These pics look pretty legit to me, but really it's too soon to tell. Certainly looks like there is NO touchscreen on this device. The bezel around the outside is reported to be aluminum. Two big thumbs up for that. One of the big things I was dissapointed with on my 8800 was the plastic bezel around the outside (I went out and got a case immediately for it). This device also appears to...

Hmmm... what’s this we have here, an 8110 in the wild?…seems that way, the 8110 was a “rumored” device for a long time now and today we can put some of those rumors to rest as we got our hands on one..the device was running v4.3.0.93 OS (not sure as to why 4.3.1 was not running on it) and includes GPS (which is absolutely amazing, in the testing it even tracked how fast we were driving down...

2008 Here We Come... Have a Crack'n New Year!!!

I know it's a day early to wish everyone a Happy New Year, but in a few short hours I'll be boarding a plane to Cuba for my long awaited vacation! From what I have read it seems my BlackBerry's data won't work there and the only Internet hookup will be a dial-up connection in my hotel's lobby, so basically I'll be suffering total CrackBerry withdrawal (device and website!) until I return on...
