Leaked: BlackBerry Torch 2 9810 device simulator!

Two weeks ago we saw the device simulator for the BlackBerry Torch 9850 leak, and today we bring you the the BlackBerry Torch 2 9810 simulator! This is as close as you can get to actually having this device, unless of course, you somehow have this device in which case yay! Sometimes people find fun new stuff in these simulators, like new icons or what-have-you. Since everyone always asks "...

Although the 10" BlackBerry PlayBook remains a rumor at this point as far as RIM is concerned there is no doubt that there is more then a few versions of them out there being used and tested.

Another leak for anyone lucky enough to have a BlackBerry Curve 9360. We don't know too much about this little guy yet aside from the fact that it's out there floating around somewhere. If you do happen to have a grasp on one, then this leak may get you running with a better OS. We have OS here for the taking, though I'm sure not many of you have the capabilities of doing much with...

Phantom vibrations and the Mind-Body Connection

[ youtube link for mobile viewing ] The Phantom Vibrate. If you don't use a holster to carry your BlackBerry or don't have the smartphone set to vibrate in the holster, chances are you haven't experienced this. Those who do holster their BlackBerry smartphones know what I'm talking about. It usually happens on one of two ways. Your "feel" your phone vibrate only to find that it hasn't....

Quick Review: Leather Sleeve for the BlackBerry PlayBook

[ youtube video link for mobile viewing ] The BlackBerry Leather Sleeve for the BlackBerry PlayBook is a pretty sweet case overall. I've become a fan of the "naked" PlayBook, so I like cases that I can just carry my tablet with that still allow me to use it in its natural form. The BlackBerry Leather Sleeve protects the device well and is super sturdy all around. It has that familiar...

Three UK changes BlackBerry Bold 9900 coming soon date

A couple of weeks ago we told you that Three UK stated the release date (listed on their coming soon page) for the BlackBerry Bold 9900 was due on the network in August. Upon revisiting this same page however, the date has been changed to September, further fueling the uncertainly on the exact release date of the much anticipated device.

[ youtube video link for mobile viewing ] With Vodafone UK recently giving us a sneak peek into the BlackBerry Bold 9900, Phones4U have also joined in on the parade. However, rather than just do a plain old review of the device, Phones4U have added their very own twist to the review. It's fun to see these videos pop up, but they just add to the pain of waiting for the device. We still have...

Take playlists one step further with Moodagent for BlackBerry devices

I have a hard time deciding what music to listen to on my BlackBerry. I usually cop out and press shuffle or just play a specific song and that's about it. While perusing through BlackBerry App World the other day I stumbled across an app called Moodagent by Syntonetic. Previously available for iOS, Android, and Nokia, it's a cloud based music player that creates randomized playlists from...

No Words With Friends for BlackBerry? Check out these alternatives!

We get asked a lot if there is a Words With Friends for the BlackBerry platform. If you have somehow not heard of it, Words with Friends is a Scrabble like game for iOS and Android that you can play against others online. It's one of the most popular games for both platforms, and BlackBerry owners have thus far been left out of the popular game. However, don't be sad, there are always options...

With Bouncity there is essentially a three step process: Go places, do challenges and get rewards.

Bix: Simple yet highly addictive puzzle game for your BlackBerry devices

The folks over at Padadaz need to come up with a 12-Step rehab for those of us who have become addicted to this game. Bix sounded like a simple game that would help me waste a few minutes here and there. Truth be told, it is a simple game but as you level up it becomes increasingly more difficult. The object of the game is to use your tracer, a little white ball, to create different shapes on...
