Maybe you’re the kind of person who prefers having a BlackBerry. Maybe you’re the kind of person who doesn’t want to deal with touchscreens and you’d much rather have a keyboard that you don’t need to slide out. If that’s the case, you’ll want the newly announced BlackBerry Bold 9780. It’s not like this phone […]more →

Gizmodo got their hands on one of the first BlackBerry Torch 9800 smartphones from RIM. Their verdict? The screen has such a low-res, it’s like going back to SD after watching HD for a year. It’s a 480×360 display and a “grisly sight,” the text is jaggy and ugly when compared to an Android or iPhone display.more →
RIM today unveiled their Torch 9800 smartphone following the news of their BlackBerry 6 operating system. What this means for you? A whole lot.more →
There are laws in many jurisdictions that restrict the use of cell phones while driving. Many people have invested in Bluetooth headsets for handsfree calling, but what about text and email messaging? For that, you may want to take a look at the Text’nDrive app.more →
I’m still more inclined to use TweetDeck on my main computer for all of my Twitter needs, but a good number of my friends prefer the browser-based HootSuite. They also use it on their iPhones. Well, it seems that BlackBerry could be joining the owl-themed team too. In an update newsletter sent out this week, the HootSuite team revealed that they’re working on a Twitter client for the BlackBerry platform too. It’s not even in beta yet, but you can sign up for early access.more →
One of the primary reasons why corporations tend to prefer Research in Motion’s BlackBerry products is that they provide a higher level of security than other devices. The trouble is that the highest level can only be had with BES. This is no longer true.
Even if you’re not using the BlackBerry Enterprise Server and you’re simply connecting through BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS), you can try your hand at the newly announced BlackBerry Protect.more →
The launch of RIM BlackBerry 6-powered devices still remains unseen, some rumors and leaks have surfaced, but for the most part nothing official has been laid out for OS 6, until today. In an official YouTube plug by the company, a clip shows off what RIM plans to deliver in BlackBerry OS 6; social networking feed integration via the Social Feeds App, fluid visual interface, universal search, and the much anticipated WebKit-based BlackBerry browser stemming from their Torch Mobile acquisition last year.more →
The Facebook for BlackBerry app is already pretty good at letting you update your status, view your friends’ walls, and peruse through the uploaded pictures. How about Facebook chatting? That feature isn’t available as of yet, but while randomly browsing through the application permissions within Facebook, a BlackBerry user found a slot that asked for permission to use the integrated instant messaging service, which doesn’t exist.more →
Research in Motion is rumored to be working on a touch screen phone hybrid that also includes a slider style keyboard, according to sources cited by the Wall Street Journal and our previous reports dubbing the device the BlackBerry Storm 3. Those familiar with the new hardware claim it is not unlike Apple’s iPhone and boasts many similar technical feats, possibly similar to RIM’s patents from 2008.more →
I’ve got some good news and some bad news for all the Research in Motion fans out there. The good news is we have very good reason to believe that a new BlackBerry form factor is coming down the pipes, complete with video evidence. The bad news is the video of the BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider has been removed.
Not content with having the standard bar-style form factor for its smartphones, Research in Motion has since expanded into the touchscreen realm with the Storm and the clamshell world with the Pearl Flip. It seems that a more powerful BlackBerry clamshell is coming and it’s called the BlackBerry 9670.
In fact, we’ve come across several live pictures of the BlackBerry 9670 Clamshell on the Internet. Unlike the Pearl Flip, this smartphone does not do the SureType thing.more →
