Hey Verizon users — today is your day! BlackBerry OS 10.2.1 is now rolling out for all devices including the BlackBerry Z10, BlackBerry Q10 and tBlackBerry Z30. It's been quite the wait, but also well worth it. OS 10.2.1 brings along a slew of new features that inlcudes Wi-Fi direct, quick settings, Hub pinch gesture, Miracast and much more. You can check out the full list of what's new...

CrackBerry Asks: Do you use the BlackBerry Hub icon?

Last week as I gathered some homescreen shots from the Crack Team, I was surprised to see that a few actually had the BlackBerry Hub icon in use — something I never do. The icon has been around for a while now as another (perhaps easier?) way to access the BlackBerry Hub without having to swipe into it. I've gotten so used to the gesture however that I don't see the need for the icon to take up...

Speaker Battle: iPhone 5s vs BlackBerry Z30 vs Galaxy Note 3

Our BlackBerry hating friend J_Caloy is back with another video, only this time he isn't hating on BlackBerry — he's putting it up to a test of might against other devices. With three challenges already in the books for alarm clock, picture sharing and multi-tasking (check them out in the gallery above) he's moved onto a battle of speakers to see which device has the best overall sound....

Team Mercedes / BlackBerry gets the win at the Australian Grand Prix

This weekend marked the start of the 2014 Formula 1 season with the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne. Lewis Hamilton sat on the pole with solid chance of taking home the win — only it was his teammate, Nico Rosberg, who would cross the line first. After just three laps, Hamilton was forced to retire due to a failed cylinder. It was definitely a disappointing start, but there was a still a...

BlackBerry will hold their next earnings call on Friday, March 28th to announce their year-end and fourth quarter 2014 results. The call will take place at 8am ET and will be available for anyone and everyone to listen in. We'll fire up the ol' podcast line after the call to discuss what goes down, so make sure you mark the date! Press Release BlackBerry to Announce Year-End and Fourth...

BlackBerry Kopi caught on camera once again

It's been a few months now since we've seen the BlackBerry Kopi, but today some more images have surfaced with another look at the unreleased device. We still don't know very much about this one, though it's said to have a removable battery and a faster processor than the BlackBerry Q5. Obviously it's got a physical keyboard as well, so it would join the ranks of the Q5 and Q10 should it ever...

2014 Formula 1 Preview

The 2014 Formula 1 season kicks off this weekend with the Rolex Australian Grand Prix, marking the return of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rossberg in the BlackBerry-sponsored Mercedes AMG Petronas car. This year looks to be a good one and is packed with plenty of changes that should make it an interesting one as well. Some drivers have moved around and some have moved on. There are a handful of rule...

BlackBerry OS 10.2.1 rolling out to T-Mobile users starting today

Next up in line for 10.2.1 is T-Mobile, one that we've been expecting for a few weeks now. According to our good pal Michael Clewley, T-Mobile will begin rolling out OS 10.2.1 today around 2pm ET. That means that if you're on Tmo you should see the update at some point before the day is out — we hope. Hey TMO-US users, 10.2.1 coming your way today. Should start around 2pm Eastern. — Michael...

How do you use your BlackBerry 10 homescreen?

One of the topics that came up on our last podcast was around icons, folders and homescreen placement. Kevin is firm that we should be able to bottom align icons within folders — and it totally makes sense — but for some, they may like things the way they are. I'll admit that I never thought of having them bottom-aligned until he brought it up, and it's never really bothered me too much. I do...

What features would your ultimate BlackBerry PlayBook 2 have?

Cruising through the forums today, I came across this post from TheJelen with an interesting BlackBerry PlayBook 2 design. The concept here is a big ol' beast packing plenty of processing power, more than enough RAM, a huge battery and a 10" screen. It would of course be running BlackBerry 10 as well and have plenty of customization options at the ready. There would even be two headphone jacks...

BlackBerry patents capacitive touch keyboard

A few weeks back we first heard of the Windermere, a QWERTY device with a touch-sensitive (capacitive) keyboard. To go along with it, a filing now shows that BlackBerry has received a patent for another type of keyboard — or for the technical folk — a "temporary keyboard having some individual keys that provide varying levels of capacitive coupling to a touch-sensitive display". The keyboard...

Legacy BlackBerry users reporting outages in Canada, APAC

Update: This issue has been resolved. If you're still having problems, hit up the comments and let us know! It seems that some legacy device users are having some service issues today across Canada and the Asia Pacific regions. While not affecting those with BlackBerry 10 devices, legacy users are experiencing "delays in sending or receiving messages, registering their device, or using other...

The BBM team is on a roll cranking out the updates and today BlackBerry gave word that the next big one will have some long-awaited features as well. While there's no official date for the next update, it is definitely something to look forward to. It will bring along the ability to share photos in multi-person chats, larger emoticons and most importantly, the ability to share files up to 16MB...

The Brazilian company Odebrecht has just announced that they wil be purchasing 3,500 BlackBerry 10 devices to deploy in their organization along with BES10. Odebrecht will be purchasing a mix of Z10 and Q5 models during the first year of their contract. Odebrecht CIO Andre Schneiter cites the security features of both BlackBerry 10 and BES10 and one of the biggest deciding factors, and also...

BlackBerry 10 Review - 2014 Edition

BlackBerry 10.2.1

When BlackBerry 10 was first introduced on the BlackBerry Z10, there were some noticeable things missing that just should have been there from the start. For longtime BlackBerry users moving from BlackBerry OS 7 to BlackBerry 10, some big functions seem to have been kicked to the curb — including (but not limited to) bedside mode, custom notifications for contacts, level 1 notifications, and...

CrackBerry Asks: Would you want a dark-themed Hub?

The dark theme / light theme debate has been ongoing for quite a while. As soon as the BlackBerry Q10 was released, Z10 owners were screaming to get some dark theme action as well. Then when an OS update took the dark theme away, Q10 users yelled that they wanted it back. So ultimately BlackBerry made the choice to give users the option to choose between the light or dark theme in apps like the...

BlackBerry has announced BES12, a new MDM solution that will allow for managing of all devices. Previously it was required to have more than one system for legacy BlackBerry devices, BB10 devices and iOS/Android/Windows Phone devices, but with BES12 everything can be managed all in one place. BES12 is slated to be released along with the BlackBerry Classic (Q20) later this year.  Press...
