It seems like a few months before the next wave of devices lands we always get an influx of OS leaks that many of us can't use. This time is no different, with some more OS 7 leaks coming our way. These come in the form of OS for the BlackBerry 9810, 9860 and 9900. Again, most of you won't be able to do anyhting with these, but some may look to tinker around a bit. Word of caution -...

You could win an extended battery for your device from! Keep reading for details! When I get a device I'm all about battery life. Ever since the 9700 and it's insane battery life came around I won't settle for anything less. One of the ways I've found to keep the fire burnin' is with an OEM size extended battery. Unlike bulky extended batteries that require a different...

Gist for BlackBerry now available for additional devices

Gist for BlackBerry has been updated to support additional devices. Previously the app was only available for the BlackBerry Torch, but the new update brings support for the Bold 9700/9780, Bold 9900/9930, Style 9670 and Tour 9630. Gist was acquired by RIM a few weeks back and good things should be on the horizon beyond their BlackBerry app (think integration). Gist is a great contact...

BlackBerry Torch 2 poses for the camera yet again

We haven't seen much of the upcoming BlackBerry Torch 2 in the last few weeks, but the guys at TechnoBuffalo tossed up a few images in case you're in withdrawal. Nothing really new here from these shots, but we do get to see more of my least favorite battery door to date (I think it looks Bedazzled!). Also we can tell from the icons that this guy is running OS 7 as expected. A quick recap of...

Just in case you thought AVEA was done, they weren't. They also went ahead and released the official OS for the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300. Same deal as before folks if AVEA is not your carrier. Just simply go ahead and remove that pesky vendor.xml file before you load any of these up. Thanks @rr_yy!

Although all of these OS' were previously leaked, it's pretty awesome that AVEA just unleashed them all at once for everyone who either may not have had a chance to grab them yet or prefers to stick to official OS releases from a carrier. OS is now available for the BlackBerryBold 9780, BlackBerry Torch 9800 and finally, the BlackBerry Pearl 3G (9100/9105). If you're not on AVEA just...

I admit my BlackBerry is rarely out of my hand. On those rare occasions that it is, it's usually in my back pocket or my purse. Now that my kids are getting older and I'm not required to carry a multitude of toys and assorted baby paraphernalia, I've been looking at the variety of cases available for the multitude of BlackBerry devices. On most days, I just need something to hold my BlackBerry...

Better manage your contact list with Contact Import/Export for BlackBerry

This is one app that I can say I am instantly in love with. No matter how many ways you backup your contacts, sometimes it's just not that easy to get what you need to do done. Be it updating, backing up or even switching to another device, sometimes it's not as easy as it seems. That's where Contact Import/Export hopes to solve your problems. This handy app lets you both import and export (...

This one definitely made me chuckle a bit. Nigel sent in the above image of an AT&T BlackBerry Curve 8310 on display at a local Walmart. It seems that wires got crossed somewhere as the device is being advertised as BlackBerry 6 Ready. As we all know, the 83xx series will never see BlackBerry 6 (unless Walmart knows something we don't) so it's safe to assume that this tag belongs to...

The BlackBerry PlayBook has been on the market for a little over a month now, and while we've seen the catalog of PlayBook apps grow, we have yet to see most of the BIG TIME services that sooo many of us use daily on our computers and other mobile devices come to the Tablet OS platform (seriously, I can't even imagine going back to life without Kindle, Skype, Dropbox or Evernote and...

Here come the BlackBerry 7 OS leaks

That time again folks, the time when OS leaks start turning up before the actual devices. BlackBerry 7 is of course the next OS to be appearing on BlackBerry smartphones after it was announced that RIM would be bypassing BlackBerry 6.1 on future devices. Now, as the devices are getting even closer to launch, the OS' for them have now started to turn up. That said, you have to keep in mind...
