A must-watch enthusiastic review of the BlackBerry Z30!

Back in February, Dan Nessel from accepted the challenge to put down his iPhone 5 and pick up the BlackBerry Z30 for 7 days. Unsurprisingly to BlackBerry fans, Dan walked away from the test really appreciating the BlackBerry Z30 and the timesaving features offered up by BlackBerry 10. Now Dan is back with another look at the Z30, this time following the big upgrade to OS 10.2.1...

CrackBerry Mailbag: The Death of the PlayBook

BlackBerry PlayBook Graveyard

Following yesterday's BlackBerry PlayBook update and subsequent recognition that this is the last OS update the BlackBerry PlayBook will ever see, the community has been pretty vocal. Looking back at the history of the PlayBook, it really is a sad story. So much potential, but instead we're left with shattered dreams, broken promises and what still feels all these years later, like an...

BlackBerry PlayBook OS support officially ends this April

BlackBerry PlayBook

There's a depressing saying that goes something like, "Everybody dies twice. The first time when you stop breathing, and the second time when somebody mentions your name for the last time." In the case of the BlackBerry PlayBook, the first death came when BlackBerry made it clear they would not be delivering BlackBerry 10 to the tablet. The PlayBook is now (arguably) approaching its second...

Our Top 10 Favorite BGR BlackBerry Leaks!

In a blog post on the official Inside BlackBerry blog yesterday, CEO John Chen relayed word that the company will be cracking down on leaks. In addition to the company putting in place more measures to prevent leaks from happening in the first place, BlackBerry will also show no mercy in legally going after those who choose to leak (and get caught doing it of course). You can view my thoughts...

Our Top 10 Favorite BlackBerry Device Leaks Of All Time!

Our Top 10 Favorite BlackBerry Device Leaks Of All Time!

Following up on today's post from BlackBerry CEO John Chen on how he plans to crack down on leaks, we thought it would be fun to take a little trip down memory lane and check out some of our favorite leaks from the years gone by. There are actually many more than I remembered, so we kept this one to device-related leaks and exclusives as well, that tends to be where most of us get the MOST...

Oh Typo, how you push my buttons. When it comes to the Typo Keyboard for iPhone, I've actually been 100% impartial in the matter. I've praised the Typo keyboard — a thing many BlackBerry users think is wrong of me to do — for being a good product, if what you're looking for is a BlackBerry-like typing experience on an iPhone. I've also expressed my mind repeatedly on how much I think the Typo...

Metal Shavings Leave Behind a Pile of Dead Z10 Earpiece Speakers

I have now nicknamed my older brother Mark the 'phone wrecker'. He dropped by my place earlier in the week to give me a hand installing a TRX mounting bracket on the ceiling in my condo (in true younger brother fashion, I watched while he did all the work), and along with his tools he brought with him the three broken BlackBerry Z10s pictured above. Each of his Z10s suffered the same fate — a...

What are your top FIVE things you'd like to see improved on BlackBerry 10?

With new CEO John Chen at the helm of BlackBerry, it's clear that the company is closely paying attention to the feedback of their customer base. Beyond the leadership team stating this is as a fact, the announcement of the trackpad-wielding BlackBerry Q20 is clear evidence that the company is willing to make changes based on customer feedback. Following Mobile World Congress late last month,...

App Icons!

Productivity and efficiency. These two words have always been synonymous with the BlackBerry experience, and the ability to get things done FAST was the primary reason I became a BlackBerry fan so many years ago. Thinking back to the my first BlackBerry, the 7290, I remember being so impressed at how efficiently I could navigate my way through the operating system. BlackBerry had mapped...

CrackBerry's 7th Birthday Contest!

It's our 7th birthday and we're celebrating in grand fashion. In years past we've gone pretty crazy giving away the goods in birthday contests, and this year is no exception. This time though, we're changing things up a bit. Instead of offering up cool BlackBerry prizes (since you're all rocking new BlackBerry 10 phones already), we're giving away some awesome stuff you can use with your...

There will be many BlackBerry "Classic" models like the Q20

Following BlackBerry's Mobile World Congress Press Conference, I had the chance to sit down with the company's VP of Global Product Management, Francois Mahieu. Francois has a broad range of responsibilities at BlackBerry related to bringing new devices to market and we had a delightful conversation of which I'll be following up with more details. While I work on that longer interview piece, I...
