BlackBerry OS

QNX logo shows up in BlackBerry PlayBook advertising; should we expect to see more of this with BlackBerry SuperPhones?

QNX logo shows up in BlackBerry PlayBook advertising; should we expect to see more of this with BlackBerry SuperPhones?

I honestly don't know if this is a recent change to the BlackBerry.com website or if it has been this way for a while on the PlayBook page (my attention was brought to it this morning by this CrackBerry forum thread). But as far I can recall this is the only time I've ever seen the official QNX logo used in official marketing materials of the BlackBerry PlayBook. When the BlackBerry...

OS 7.0.0.319 becomes official for the BlackBerry Curve 9360 from Telus, Bell and Redington

Always fun to see three carriers bring the same OS out as an official release for a device that has yet to be released, but if you are a lucky user who happened to snag a BlackBerry Curve 9360, give this a shot. OS 7.0.0.319 is the latest official available for this device, and yours to download now. While it is an official, you will want to be sure you are careful while loading, and be...
