CrackBerry.com Goes Worldwide - NetworkWorldAsia

I had a nice interview today with Lalou Ramos of Network World Asia . We discussed CrackBerry.com and a host of topics surrounding the online space. One of the questions Lalou asked about CrackBerry.com is whether or not we have plans to offer the site in other languages. My answer was of course Yes!!!  But we currently don't have the in-house capabilities to make this happen. If there's anybody out there who would like to help us take CrackBerry.com to all corners of the globe in all languages, please be sure to contact us and help make it happen!

Check out Lalou's CrackBerry.com article here...

Welcome to CrackBerry.com! We actually put the site up live just over a week ago so we could make sure everything was running smooth prior to our official launch, and in that time the site has received overwhelmingly positive reviews from the BlackBerry Users and Abusers who have managed to find their way here.

We're still working to add a few finishing touches to the site, but since things were over 98.6% there we simply could not keep quiet any longer.  The time to start spreading the word about CrackBerry.com is Now!

Here are a few links to get you started on your way:

1.  Our Official Welcome - explains what we're about!

2.  The Crack Team Story - explains how this site came into existence.

3.  The CrackBerry Store - downloads galore, plus any accessory you could ever want to buy for your Berry. If you need anything BlackBerry, think CrackBerry.com.

4.  CrackBerry Forums - this is where registered members hang out and converse on all things CrackBerry.  Rumors, News, Help, and more.

5. The CrackBerry WAP Site - Check it out now on your PC.  This is the site you will get when you visit CrackBerry.com on your BlackBerry.  It's basically your portal to the mobile web - all the best sites that are viewable on your berry, plus lots of games, downloads and more. Download the desktop launcher (works on Pearl & 8700s) and you're never more than one click away from CrackBerry.com. You will LOVE this site when it comes to killing time at the airport.

Enjoy the Site! 


Update - Off to a Good Start!

Happy Monday!

We have been running CrackBerry.com live for a few days now, and the initial response we have received from the blackberry addicts who have stumbled upon the site has been overwhelmingly postive.

I think members are loving the fact they can register an @CrackBerry.com email address, and the action in the forums shows me that the blackberry community is eager to turn CrackBerry.com into a site they frequent on a regular basis.

I still consider the site to be in pre-launch mode.  We have some tweaks and improvements to make over the next few days that should really help with the the functionality and usability of the site. Once complete, our efforts will turn towards promoting and growing the awareness and content of CrackBerry.com.  So if you can have some patience with the Crack Team over the next few days it will be very much appreciated.  If you notice anything really awry with the site, please don't hestitate to contact us.  And if you have any ideas or suggestions on how to make CrackBerry.com even better, feel free to stick them in the comments section of this post.

To all the people who have registered with the site, thanks for getting us off to a great start! Spread the word!  And if you haven't registered yet....what are you waiting for?!


The Prada Phone by LG - How Will I Convince My Girlfriend to Buy a BlackBerry Now?!

For the past year I have been trying to get my girlfriend Erika to buy a BlackBerry Pearl or the new 8800 when it hits the market. For the first 6 months the answer to my pleas was a flat out NO. But over the past few weeks, mainly thanks to my annoying non-stop talk of the upcoming launch of crackberry.com, her NO's turned into MAYBES and I could tell by next week the answer should be a YES. 

But yesterday, the unthinkable happened.  She discovered the Prada phone by LG. It was announced on January 18th, 2007, so it was sort of old news to me (read the official press release here), but it was news to her when she saw it online, and I knew the moment  her eyes fell upon that PRADA logo that my mission just failed. 

So RIM, if you're listening, can you please get your business development team working on a deal with Versace or Louis Vuitton.  Until then, I think you will be losing out on the business of at least one potential customer and I'm sure she's not the only one out there who values fashion as much as high-tech gadgetry.


How to Install the CrackBerry.com Desktop Launcher

First take, no excuses!  These Video Tip posts will get better with time, but I wanted to get one up here quick. This tip shows you how to install the CrackBerry.com desktop launcher onto your blackberry (works on 8700 series, Pearl, and should work on newer devices coming out from RIM too).  Also gives a quick sneak peak at the CrackBerry.com WAP site, which you should definitely check out!

CrackBerry Addicts Rejoice!

CrackBerry.com Goes Live!

Welcome to CrackBerry.com, the #1 site FOR CrackBerry Users and Abusers, built and operated BY CrackBerry Users and Abusers.

To find out more about how this site came into existence and why, and who we are, click here for the full story.  In the meantime, here is a quick overview of what you can expect from the Crack Team and CrackBerry.com

Our aim is simple – we want to establish CrackBerry.com as the premier resource for anything and everything BlackBerry.  Whether you are at an airport with time to kill and want some games to play, need a replacement case for your Berry, want to stay on top of the latest news and rumours in the mobile industry, want to buy a Bluetooth headset but don't know which one to buy, or are not quite up to CrackBerry Addict status yet and need help figuring out how to use your BlackBerry, CrackBerry.com is the first place you go.

We view the BlackBerry as a serious device that also has a lighter side and we've built CrackBerry.com to reflect that.  We've done our best to keep the site simple and intuitive while providing all the features we thought a site with a name worthy of the "2006 Webster's New Word of the Year" award should have.

We've broken the CrackBerry.com website down into three main categories – Community, Forums, and Store.  Think Community for news, reviews, rumours, entertainment and useful information for new and experienced berry users alike. The Forum is your way to interact with other CrackBerry users  and the store will offer you the latest software, hardware accessories and downloads for every type of BlackBerry.

If you register with the site you have the option of setting up your free @ CrackBerry.com email redirector.  Set up YourDesiredName@CrackBerry.com and the system will redirect emails sent to your new @CrackBerry.com address to any existing email address you specify.  It's simple. For those of you whose BlackBerry addiction has reached the point of unhealthy, be sure to check out the Rehab section.

We've built the CrackBerry.com wapsite as your portal to the mobile web.  Using the mobile browser on your wireless device, visit www.crackberry.com (or wap.crackberry.com if you don't get automatically redirected).  The site features hundreds of links to the best mobile sites.  You can download the CrackBerry launcher (it installs a sweet CrackBerry.com icon onto your BlackBerry's desktop) to make it easy for you to use CrackBerry.com as your starting point on the mobile web.

Enjoy the site!
