"Why I hate the BlackBerry Store"

In case you missed it, our buddy J_Caloy recently took a trip to Dubai as part of the BlackBerry University Power Tour. While there, he checked out the flagship BlackBerry retail store and everything that it has to offer — and needless to say, he wasn't impressed. In the sea of not only basic black devices — but also plenty of colors — he just couldn't grasp why there were such great Dubai...

BlackBerry has announced today that BES10 is the most cost-effective MMS for enterprise, according to research firm Strategy Analytics. The report found that BES10 had the lowest total cost of ownership over a 5 year periods, and that migrating from BES5 to a BlackBerry competitor is more than double the cost over five years than migrating from BES5 to BES10. The report also noted that the "all...

Leaked OS for the BlackBerry Z3

Yesterday we saw OS hit the streets for most BlackBerry 10 devices, and today we can add one more to the mix — the BlackBerry Z3. Even though the Z3 has yet to be made available officially, we're sure that some of you are sneaking around with them and keeping your lips sealed. To help enjoy those pre-release devices — or for those looking to break down the Z3 OS — it's here for the...

Those ugly boxed icons are no more on BlackBerry OS 10.3

Ask and ye shall receive. Our good friend Michael Clewley is back with some more OS goodies on his BBM Channel today, now with a look at what will be the OS 10.3 homescreen. Word on the street is that we'll be seeing plenty more in the way of OS 10.3 news from Michael's channel, so this is just the first of many peeks at the latest BlackBerry OS. One gripe that BlackBerry 10 users had with...

Leaked OS for all BlackBerry 10 devices

We've been in a bit of a dry spell when it comes to leaked OS' on BlackBerry 10, but a new one has dropped today to help start the week off right. Courtesy of lengend in the CrackBerry forums, OS is now available to download for the BlackBerry Z30, with other devices to follow in short order. This one is hot off the press so we don't know what's good, bad or ugly, so if you do fire...

I know we're all still feeling a bit burnt buy the crappy camera on the Bold 9900 (I am at least), but the BlackBerry 10 devices actually have some pretty solid camera action when it comes down to it. I've been able to snag some awesome shots on my Z30, and that almost makes up for all of the busted ones I snagged on my 9900. If you haven't played around with the camera on your BB10 device...

Another one of my go-to accessories for summer is a solid Bluetooth speaker. I love my Sonos when I'm indoors, but when I head out to the patio I don't have anything wired up, so I bring along my BlackBerry and a speaker to spread the tunes. There are plenty available — from the ever-portable BlackBerry Mini Speaker to the pumped-up sound of the SuperTooth Disco Bluetooth Stereo Speaker. No...

CrackBerry Asks: Are you using BBM stickers?

I have been loving the new stickers in BBM lately. I may or may not be more annoying than normal with my messages, but I actually love throwing stickers in my conversations — even more so than just using emoticons. They add a new level to BBM and are a welcome addition in my book. I didn't think that I'd be a big fan, but I think they're a fun way to add some flair to messages. On the flip...

If you're getting hot and heavy with the 2014 Formula 1 season, you can now show your support with some awesome wallpapers. The official Mercedes AMG Petronas pages has posted up some great shots of the BlackBerry-sponsored cars as well as drivers Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton. If you're at all a fan of the team (as you should be!) then these can help show off your F1 spirit. The...

Rogers introduces Suretap mobile payment system

Today Rogers has launched their suretap wallet — a new app for NFC-enabled BlackBerry 10 and Android devices that allows users to make payments at thousands of retailers using just their smartphone. Users can store eligible cards within the app, and at participating retailers can then tap their phones on the payment terminal for a transaction. Suretap wallet lets you store cards such as a...

Formula 1 driver Nico Rosberg chats with fans over BBM Channels

Ahead of the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne, Team Mercedes Formula 1 driver Nico Rosberg took some time out of his busy schedule to chat with some fans over BBM Channels — through a live chat on the Mercedes AMG Petronas official channel — and answered some burning questions. He had all kinds of things thrown at him, like What is your fav Mercedes car ever?, What are your favorite movies...

John Chen: BlackBerry isn't selling or leaving the handset business any time soon

Last night some stories were floating around stating that BlackBerry CEO, John Chen would "consider dumping" the handset business if that portion of the company remains unprofitable. Fact of the matter is, that's not the case — "my comments were taken out of context," he says. Chen says he has no intention of selling off the handset business, and that the focus of the company is trying to make...

Over 60% of CrackBerry readers want the ability to theme BlackBerry 10

One of the things I miss about BlackBerry 7 devices is the ability to change up the theme. With BlackBerry 10, I sometimes get bored with the look and wish I could change things up like on old devices. I have a bit of "wallpaper OCD" so instead of changing themes, I find myself constantly changing my wallpaper to keep things fresh — and it seems that I'm not alone. When asked in our poll,...

Accessory Roundup - Enter to win a car kit for your BlackBerry!

Spring is nearly upon us and for me, that means road trips. I look forward to the warmer weather when I can pack the family in the car and hit the road for destinations unknown — but not without my BlackBerry along for the ride. For that I always make sure to have a car mount handy so my BlackBerry is at the ready when it need it for navigating, playing music or just taking phone calls. My...

BlackBerry Kopi gets comparison photos with Q5

We've seen quite a bit of the unreleased BlackBerry Kopi over the last few weeks, and again today it has turned up in some shiny new images. This time around the Kopi isn't flying solo, rather it's standing in side-by-side with the BlackBerry Q5 for a bit of comparison. There are quite a few similarities between the two QWERTY devices, notably the keyboard, button placement and size. When...

Formula 1: 2014 Bahrain GP recap

It was the second race in just as many weeks on the Formula 1 circuit, but that didn't stop the BlackBerry-sponsored Mercedes duo of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg from strutting their stuff. From practice through qualifying, it was clear that the two were out to continue their epic 2014 run — holding down the 1 and 2 positions for the race start on Sunday. The Mercedes cars jumped off the...

More BlackBerry Z3 hands-on photos turn up

We've already grabbed some camera time with the BlackBerry Z3 during MWC, but it seems like it's popping up more and more as the release gets closer. As such, a new set of BlackBerry Z3 photos have turned up online. These aren't the greatest shots, but they do again give us another look at the upcoming Z3. Nothing new to be seen for the most part, but for those of you who are anxiously...

BlackBerry Z3 shown off with Z10 and Z30

We haven't seen much of the BlackBerry Z3 in the flesh just yet, but with it due out in the next few weeks, it will certainly be getting much more time in the spotlight. An image has turned up today however that shows of the Z3 next to the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Z30. Nothing crazy fun on this one, but it does give a bit of a look at how it stacks up size wise against the other devices...
