My Classic BlackBerry

Call me crazy, but one of my all time favorite BlackBerry smartphones was the Style, at least in design. I was a huge fan of the form factor and it harkened back to a simpler time. Very nostalgic. The exterior screen was great for notifications, almost like a smartwatch, and the small, folded...

"Because I can use it way better while driving" Ok, Ok. Now before you go ripping Vinny apart in the comments, let me tell the full story here. My cousin Vinny isn't Joe Pesci. He's actually the guy below. And Vinny isn't technically my cousin. In reality, he's my fiancée's godmother's...

Why is BlackBerry bringing the trackpad back?

This week, during MWC in Barcelona, BlackBerry announced that we’ll soon see the return of the famous optical trackpad that so many of us loved prior to the launch of BlackBerry 10. I’m among the trackpad loving crowd, and I’m reminded of this every time I try to move the cursor around my screen...

CrackBerry Asks: Do you prefer the name BlackBerry Q20 or BlackBerry Classic?

Hot off the heels of John Chen announcing the BlackBerry Q20 at MWC he made it very clear that he prefers to call the Q20 the BlackBerry Classic and wants users to do so as well.  I've now got use to the Z and Q line of names, but with the Q20 bringing back the trackpad and hardware buttons the...
