Kevin's So Insane He Just Might Be Right Ideas

So Research in Motion did look at buying Palm... what does that mean for BlackBerry beyond 6?

So Research in Motion did look at buying Palm... what does that mean for BlackBerry beyond 6?

Well this is interesting. According to a recent SEC filing and report by Business Insider, the information has come forth that it wasn't just HP who was looking at buying Palm, but also other big players including Apple, Google and Research in Motion. It's always fun to hypothesize on what big companies should do and who should buy who, and on many a CrackBerry Podcast we had the...

BlackBerry Messenger stress test 2 conclusion and video highlights; Bold 9650 did better than 9000 but not all was :)

BlackBerry Messenger stress test 2 conclusion and video highlights; Bold 9650 did better than 9000 but not all was :)

That's it. I'm done with BlackBerry Messenger stress tests. Well, at least I'm done with them for a little while. Maybe I'll give it another go once we have a new device rocking BlackBerry 6 and a 1GB of memory (Storm3 perhaps?!). While the Sprint BlackBerry Bold 9650 we conducted this BBM stress test on did run a LOT smoother throughout the process than the Bold 9000 we did our...

Utility App / OS Request: Do Something to Prevent Me From Accidentally Hanging Up On People When Using Apps While on a Call

* Update - More Ideas: Lots of great comments on this one which proves this problem goes well beyond just me. Another great suggestion that may fit better within the BlackBerry way of doing things (vs. introducing the concept of a double click) woud be to add a pop-up with the "are you sure you want to end this call?" question when you hit the end key when on a call but NOT in the phone...

Friday Fun Speculation: Could RIM Also Be Working on an Update to the BlackBerry Pearl Flip?

Friday Fun Speculation: Could RIM Also Be Working on an Update to the BlackBerry Pearl Flip?

So here's the deal.  Yesterday the image above (center one) popped up on an accessory and parts supplier website labeled as OEM Blackberry Pearl 9100 Keyboard Keypad Black. I think the notion of a full qwerty on a Pearl caught everybody by surprise, including me, though conceptually it could be pretty awesome - more intuitive than SureType and if they get the keys right it could be easy...
