Why it wouldn't make sense for RIM to initially launch a BlackBerry 10 phone with a physical keyboard

Why it wouldn't make sense for RIM to initially launch a BlackBerry 10 phone with a physical keyboard

We've had a hunch for a long time now that the first BlackBerry 10 phone to hit the market later this year will feature a full touchscreen design, lacking the physical keyboard that BlackBerry is traditionally known for. This was confirmed earlier this month at BlackBerry World, when we got our first preview of BlackBerry 10, running on a full touchscreen Dev Alpha device. Some media...

If the Porsche Designed P'9981 isn't for you, how about a Ferrari BlackBerry Bold 9700?

If the Porsche Designed P'9981 isn't for you, how about a Ferrari BlackBerry Bold 9700?

Just the other week Kevin posted about his Porsche Design P'9981 BlackBerry and asked the community if RIM was to do any other partnerships with brands, who would you want to see them partner with. In the post, we showed off a hot looking Ferrari PlayBook concept. Now today in CrackBerry's forums, guess what photos showed up? That's right, a Ferrari BlackBerry, but in this case it's...

Quarantine the damage; Start Building the Love. It's time to setup a BlackBerry USA division.

Quarantine the damage; Start Building the Love. It's time to setup a BlackBerry USA division.

This is an editorial that's been in my head for a while now, and if you listened to my recent guest appearance on the Engadget Mobile Podcast you will have already heard a good chunk of it. With today being Valentine's Day and this article aimed at re-building the love for BlackBerry in the USA, the timing is right to publish it. Long story short, I think Research In Motion formally...

Message to RIM: Fix the way Google Analytics reports BlackBerry browser data on new devices. You're helping the competition!

Left Chart: PlayBook, BB6 & BB7 stats are reported under Safari Right Chart: Drilling into Safari stats, PlayBook, BB6 & BB7 devices report as Safari / (not set) SERIOUSLY. Given the "perceived" state of BlackBerry in the marketplace today, having to write a blog post like this makes me really, really upset. I'm going to assume it's an oversight by Research In Motion or the...

QNX Developer Phone to be BlackBerry Colt? First Commercial QNX BlackBerry Smartphone to support LTE?!

QNX Developer Phone to be BlackBerry Colt? First Commercial QNX BlackBerry Smartphone to support LTE?!

On the recent RIM earnings call one of the most unexpected things said by RIM's Founder and Co-CEO Mike Lazaridis was this: "Well, we've got a lot of planned announcements at DevCon in October, and we've got -- we'll be announcing our new development platform for QNX and our QNX-based phones. We'll be launching the development phones, so that people can start experiencing the QNX...

The Fate of the BlackBerry PlayBook: Bright Future? Graveyard? Wonky Life of Licensing? All of the above??

The Fate of the BlackBerry PlayBook: Bright Future? Graveyard? Wonky Life of Licensing? All of the above??

With a Research In Motion earnings announcement and investors call happening later today (we'll be live blogging it at 5pm ET here on the CrackBerry blogs), per usual we're seeing the stories ramp up on the internet as analysts start voicing their predictions about how RIM is doing and what the future holds. I always like reading these stories. I talk to a lot of analysts on a regular...
