Howdy CrackBerry nation! Another week has come to a close and that can only mean one thing. However, before we get on with that let us just reflect a moment on all that has happened with BlackBerry since our last time. First, and most important, is that Verizon Wireless began their online sales of the BlackBerry Classic, though retails stores won't be carrying it until March 5th. From what I see on their website it is available in two variants: one with a camera and one without. Next we saw a new version of BBM beta roll out with the option to create a custom PIN, remove ads and have a special badge on their profile picture in BBM. Finally, we have a fun little contest going on whereby you can get your hands on some cool BlackBerry goodies. I don't know about you but free stuff is always a good thing especially with a nice BlackBerry logo on it. Be sure to head on over to the page, read the instructions carefully, and leave your comment to enter.

Now on to the more important topic of the day. It is time to bring you this week's picks for all your passionate BlackBerry addicts out there.
