Canada Gets FREE BlackBerry Pearls this Holiday Season

Canada Gets FREE BlackBerry Pearls this Holiday Season

CDMA-based Canadian carriers Telus and Bell are really going after Rogers this holiday season with a FREE BlackBerry Pearl 8130 promotion. The catch? You need to be a new customer and commit to a 3-year plan of $45 or more per month before they hand you over the new phone. As Robb puts it, free in this case really means $1620 (at least) over the course of the next 36 months. It's good to...

FlipSide MP3 Player for BlackBerry from Electric Pocket: Out of Beta and Ready to ROCK!

Back on November 9th I published word of the "beta" of Electric Pocket's FlipSide Media Player for the BlackBerry. The post got a huge response and the software an even bigger one as many of us (myself included) gave the demo a try. The very public nature of the "beta" generated a TON of great feedback from the CrackBerry community, which made Electric Pocket work their butts off to get the...

New Pink 8130 Pearl on the Horizon?

New Pink 8130 Pearl on the Horizon?

Rumors have it that a new pink edition of the 8130 BlackBerry Pearl are on the way. I've whipped up a quick 'mockup' of the phone here to the right. As you can see it should be a hit with the ladies! (I would think?) It would also be a tremendous fund-raiser for breast cancer and/or cancer awareness should RIM want to get into something like that. The NHL used pink sticks in a few games...

BlackBerry 9000 Specs Revealed!

Our friends over at BGR have revealed initial details of the 9000 series. Exciting stuff! Here's what we know so far: Screen dimensions are going to be 480x320 / 320x480 depending on how you hold it!

Potentially good news for BlackBerry users in Canada. It seems the feds (federal government) have decided to open up the Canadian market to broader competition against the will of the big players (Bell, Rogers, Telus). An auction of the "wireless spectrum" will occur next May, which should shakes things up and hopefully result in lower prices, better service and more choices for consumers....
