CrackBerry Asks: Could the BlackBerry Q20 tempt you back to a hardware keyboard?

CrackBerry Asks: Could the BlackBerry Q20 tempt you back to a hardware keyboard?

With us know knowing that the next BlackBerry 10 hardware keyboard flagship device (the Q20/BlackBerry Classic) will see the return of the trackpad and function keys I was intrigued to discover if the news could indeed bring 'all touch' BlackBerry users back to their roots and switching over to a hardware keyboard.  From my perspective it's a hard one to call. One the one hand I...

CrackBerry Asks: Are you happy the trackpad is making a return with the BlackBerry Q20?

CrackBerry Asks: Are you happy the trackpad is making a return with the BlackBerry Q20?

Although we don't have images of the forthcoming BlackBerry Q20 (or Classic), BlackBerry CEO John Chen has confirmed that the next flagship hardware keyboard device will see the return of the famous trackpad and function keys.  As a hardcore Q10 user myself it's certainly going to feel a bit odd almost going back, but with a bigger screen on the Q20 (3.5 inch) the ability to navigate...

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

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 name Classic does seem quite apt.  Which name will you be favoring?  Do you prefer the name...

CrackBerry Asks: Will you still use WhatsApp now that it's been sold to Facebook?

CrackBerry Asks: Will you still use WhatsApp now that it's been sold to Facebook?

The big news yesterday was that Facebook bought the popular instant messaging service WhatsApp for over $16 billion. WhatsApp is one of the biggest messaging services out there, partly due to it being available on so many platforms. The service won't be getting Facebooked right away (if at all) — WhatsApp says the app will "remain autonomous and operate independently".  Now of course...

CrackBerry Asks: Are you now using Instagram since iGrann was released for BlackBerry 10?

CrackBerry Asks: Are you now using Instagram since iGrann was released for BlackBerry 10?

We featured the release of iGrann arriving in BlackBerry World recently - even though it had been in public beta for some time. That said - the beta would mean side loading the file which not everyone is happy with. On other operating platforms Instagram is huge and luckily for us BlackBerry 10 users we now get to join in the party thanks to iGrann which does a fantastic job if you ask...

How long did it take you for BlackBerry OS 10.2.1 to download and install?

How long did it take you for BlackBerry OS 10.2.1 to download and install?

It's an exciting day in CrackBerry land, with BlackBerry OS 10.2.1 officially now here and beginning to rollout around the globe on multiple carriers. After waiting a long time for this update to get released, I couldn't help but notice this morning that the update itself is taking a while to download. So far, out of my BlackBerry Z10, Z30, P'9982 and Q10, it's only on the Q10 so far...

CrackBerry Asks: Which social network do you use the most on your BlackBerry?

CrackBerry Asks: Which social network do you use the most on your BlackBerry?

On any smartphone in this day and age I'm fairly confident that most of us use some form of social networking. BlackBerry 10 makes connecting and sharing with friends super easy thanks to the BlackBerry Hub and I can safely say that all the CrackBerry team use use most social networks in some shape or form.  We're still lagging behind our Android and iPhone counterparts in a couple of...
