BlackBerrius Maximus - part III - the Bold Edition

I couldn't make this stuff up... it's True! America - the land of opportunity - the land of freedom - the shining star in the economic universe!! OK, so maybe our economy is in the toilet and maybe we aren't really as "free" as we think we are. And, Ok, maybe the rest of the world isn't thrilled with us right now - but it is great to be an American because we are certainly the land of...

AT&T Bold Launch Party Dates. Early November Release?

AT&T Bold Launch Party Dates. Early November Release?

* Update: BGR posted an internal AT&T email that shows training for the Bold has been postponed indefinitely. Typically AT&T likes to do training two weeks or so out from a new device launch, so canceling now and start it up in the latter half of October would bode well with what we're hearing and the above dates. You can check out the email after the jump! RIM & AT&T should...

Hands On With a Dummy BlackBerry Storm 9530

Hands On With a Dummy BlackBerry Storm 9530

Wow. Maybe the Verizon BlackBerry Storm 9530 is even closer to market than many of us have thought. The photo above, plus three more posted in the CrackBerry forums, are of a Verizon BlackBerry Storm dummy model taken in a Verizon carrier store. The word is these display dummies were sent out a week and a half ago. BIG thanks to Diego (aka BBerry.) for snapping these pics and posting in...

Sign Of An AT&T Bold Soon?

I know, I know. We have all heard it before right? The AT&T Bold is coming on such and such a date, and while we all sit back and wait (some more patiently then others), we have seen 31 countries launch the Bold well before one of the biggest markets for RIM... the USA! AT&T was one of the first carriers to acknowledge they would be offering the BlackBerry Bold, yet somehow it...

RIM Reports Quarterly Earnings... Stock Plummets

RIM Reports Quarterly Earnings... Stock Plummets

Yesterday, Research in Motion gave investors a bit of a shock when they reported their quarterly earnings. Margins are shrinking and earnings won't be up to analysts' forecasts. This is mostly due to RIM spending loads of cash on new and improved devices and rollouts (Bold, Pearl Flip, Storm). Shortly after the quarterly earnings were reported, the stock plummeted more than 19%.... and as I...

Review: Case Mate Privacy Screen Pro for BlackBerry

Review: Case Mate Privacy Screen Pro for BlackBerry

There are countless reasons why BlackBerry users might desire some extra privacy. A businessman checking his e-mail during a flight could want to shield his device from the prying eyes of the curious teenagers seated around him; or on the flip side, one of those same teenagers might not fancy the guy in the suit with the 8830 watching as he attempts to make BrickBreaker history.  Average Joe...

Dear Berry: Texting While Driving

Dear Berry: Texting While Driving

Dear Berry, I am writing to tell you more of a story than asking advice. This is hard for me to understand. Maybe you can explain it to me. I was just out of town and taking a tour on a trolley. A guy came to a screeching halt almost hitting our trolley head-on. Not only was he speeding like crazy, he was wearing a neck brace and yes, typing on his Blackberry. Some people obviously NEVER...
