The Way I See It CrackBerry Nation, We've Only Just Begun...

Think of that article I wrote on 10 Reasons Why Google Will Buy RIM as symbolically freeing myself. It's only in acknowledging that RIM...

Filter your photos with FilterLab for BlackBerry

Everyone seems to love applying fun effects to their photos and BlackBerry users are no exception. We've been somewhat lacking in the app department however with very few making the cut or getting the job done well. One of the best we've seen thus far is InstaPhoto which sadly is still only available on the BlackBerry PlayBook. FilterLab is a new player to the photo fun game and is shaping up...

RIM begins BlackBerry developer video series - - First up is Paul Haenel

Many would say that application development is not one of the strong points of the BlackBerry platform, but in RIM's latest efforts they have taken to their YouTube account and begun a new series of videos. The series, Developer Stories, is aimed to give BlackBerry app developers some time in the spotlight to share their stories and explain to us why they love the BlackBerry platform. The...

  We've seen many apps and games on the PlayBook that are geared towards children. I'm guessing developers are focussing on the Play in PlayBook. Honestly, a good tablet is a tablet that the whole family can share and enjoy. If you need another excuse to put a PlayBook in the hands of your child, then have a read. The Tots application helps your kids learn their letters and numbers and...

While everyone else was busy discussing the open letters sent to RIM execs and concentrating on the all the doom and gloom surrounding the situation -- one BlackBerry developer took it upon himself to write up his own open letter.

BlackBerry Convenience key - TO THE MAX

Imagine this. You're at a crosswalk waiting for the light to change. Suddenly, three men (though one of them might be a lady, it's kind of hard to tell with the ski masks) wearing ski masks burst forth from a nearby bank. They make a dash for a black 1986 Chevy Caprice. You have just one chance, one small opportunity to save the day. Pulling your BlackBerry forth from its protective...

BlackBerry Torch 2 (9810) looks to be arriving on AT&T next month

For a while now we've been hearing that the BlackBerry Torch 2 9810 would likely arrive to carriers before the BlackBerry Bold 9900. While that remains to be seen, the evidence supporting that suggestion does keep adding up and the above image showing an August release does make sense. That said; one thing that doesn't make sense in the grand scheme of things is the fact that the device is...
