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...

Corey Visto Tech + Today Plus Theme

Corey Visto Tech + Today Plus Theme

The latest release to pop up from Corey Visto is a cool today plus theme called Tech +.  This great theme comes only in the today plus style - a cool mix of both bottom zen and today themes.  Sleek as ever, the theme combines 5 bottom docked icons (sorry, but the icons are fixed and cannot be moved) with both Calander and Messages on the home screen.  The theme is designed with cool "Vista"...

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

"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

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. After a frustrating Thursday launch I was lucky to find success on Friday, though with most stores getting only a couple of units in their first device shipment I ran into and have heard from a lot of ticked off BlackBerry diehards (I...

So before I head out for another day of Hunting Down a Rogers BlackBerry Bold, I thought I'd quickly sum up the best of the BlackBerry Bold "goodness" that's been going...

Review: vlingo for BlackBerry Smartphones

Review: vlingo for BlackBerry Smartphones

"Why tap when you can talk?" Raise your hand if you type and drive at the same time? No!! Keep your hands on the wheel! I typically use my Bluetooth headset to safely keep in touch while I'm on the road. For some, this type of communication may not be enough. If you do find it necessary to multitask in your motorcar, vlingo has the answer for you. Using your BlackBerry, and vlingo...

Review: GreenFinder for BlackBerry

Chances are, if you're a golfer you can appreciate that knowledge is power... Especially around the golf course. Knowing yardages to exact locations is invaluable, and can help lower your scores. Golfers will be well aware that there are other rangefinders out there (SkyCaddie is the big name) but for that, you're shelling out big bucks along with a monthly fee. GreenFinder is an app that...
