Anybody who has ever listened to a CrackBerry.com Podcast will know all about Don. Since Episode 001, not a show has gone by where Craig (Don's biggest fan) or I have not...

New Image: Bold, Javelin and 8220 Flip Phone Side by Side

The photo above popped up on HoFo yesterday. From left to right, we have the now-released in some country's BlackBerry Bold, the yet-unreleased/unofficially announced BlackBerry "Javelin", and lastly, the very-soon-to-be-released BlackBerry 8220 Pearl (aka KickStart).
