    Social butterflies and CrackBerry addicts will no doubt be pleased to know that Facebook 1.7 for BlackBerry is very soon coming to a Berry new you. As far as actual features go, there isn't much to talk about as it is still shrouded in secrecy deep inside some concrete building. However, the bigger picture is the fact that it's 5.0 compatibile which means BlackBerry OS 5.0 has to be getting close if applications are starting to get the 5.0 treatment. Right? Stay tuned...

  • Updated BlackBerry Tour (renamed “Essex”) to get WiFi and optical trackpad?
    by Mike
    Posted August 31st, 2009 at 1:12 pm
    For now, take your rumor folder and gently place this one in there to foster and grow. If you thought the BlackBerry Tour was hot stuff now, wait until early 2010 when a lightly updated model is supposed to appear. Along with a new name, "Essex", this new 9630 will get WiFi much like the updated Storm 2 as well as that optical trackpad that is surprising many good 'ol physical button lovers everywhere. For now, this is all rumor without any pictures or internal leaked documents to back it u...
  • ConvertBot 1.4 rejected because icon looks too much like stock time icon [Stupidity]

    Another day, another fine example of Apple's App Store employees' incompetence, stupidity, useless, and all out lack of common sense. The app caught up in the web of stupidity today happens to be one of, if not the best measurement converting app available: ConvertBot (iTunes Link). Featuring a highly futuristic and extremely slick and intuitive layout has helped ConvertBot become my number one favorite conversion app in the app store. So why are Apple's reviewers all in a circle drooling o...
  • iStat for iPhone now useless — Apple removes “free memory” option
    by Mike
    Posted August 27th, 2009 at 4:11 pm
    Ya know, while I really enjoy using my Macbook Pro and a few other Apple pieces of hardware, I am really, really beginning to despise this piece of shit called an iPhone and the company that makes it. Why the harsh, colorful, anti-elementary language? iStat Pro was a great little memory management app (I use that term loosely because Apple's BS restrictions restrict any "memory management app" being used to their fullest potential) that would show you all sorts of information about the memor...
  • Palm: “We want to marry you Google Voice”. Google: “….uhhhh. How about a lunch date”.

    With all of the publicity surrounding Apple, the iPhone, Google, and the rejection of the Google Voice app from the App Store, one can understand why other platforms such as Android and BlackBerry are tooting their horns happily crying out regarding their support for the Apple shunned service. Naturally, those who are trying to catch up to the success that has rained down on Apple and the iPhone (pretty much everyone), have begun talking up the fact that Google Voice will work flawlessly on t...
  • Samsung Galaxy/I7500 heading to T-Mobile USA…soon?
    by Mike
    Posted August 27th, 2009 at 5:43 am
    The year isn't over for Android folks. While the MyTouch 3G was already released and may have been the savior many had been waiting for, I along with many others are still waiting for something truly unique that captures our eye. Could it be that the often rumored I7500 in american form is quickly on it's way to the U.S.'s fourth largest carrier? A recent FCC document detailing the passing of a Samsung device packin' Android seems to suggest so, or at least we'd love to think that. Of cour...
  • OS 5.0 leaked for Bold, Tour, and 8900
    by Mike
    Posted August 26th, 2009 at 6:41 am
    While Bold users may still be recouping from the excitement the latest AT&T; update brought them, the more daredevilish users may be over and done with that already as they've likely had that firmware version for weeks now. While AT&T; is still messing around with oh so old 4.6 Bold firmware, the real action is in the 5.0 scene. Some brave developer or insider with special access to pre-release BlackBerry OS builds was kind enough to open the door and let loose versions of the 5.0 software for...
  • Stock BlackBerry 9700 (OS Wallpapers inside!

    Posted August 25th, 2009 at 10:02 am
    Many BlackBerry users, especially the geek and tinkers in the world love the ability to fully customize their BlackBerries with custom themes, wallpapers, and sounds. Building on that addiciton, the BlackBerry 9700 that is slated for release in just a few short weeks is no doubt the most lusted BlackBerry to date. One particular feature that many Berry users are clamoring for currently are copies of the wallpapers (shown on commercials) that are included in the new OS that ships wi...

    Posted August 19th, 2009 at 1:09 pm
    Without any filler or hesitation, there are two big pieces of information that all of the CrackBerry addicts out in internet land need to know: First: RIM is planning on adding FULL Flash and SilverLight support into the BlackBerry browser. Now, re-read that...planned is the keyword. According to various BGR insiders with seeds planted inside of RIM, next summer appears to be the rough guestemation date of a possible release on said support. As has been mentioned before in regards to ful...
  • AT&T HTC Lancaster sent out to pasture before it even had a chance…?
    by Mike
    Posted August 19th, 2009 at 11:53 am
    In all reality, the HTC Lancaster never had a chance. News is coming in that the HTC Lancaster, which was to be AT&T;'s first toe dipped into the Android market, has supposedly been shelved. Gasps! Now, if you were on the search for a lower to mid range Android device that would be a fairly decent texting device, you're no doubt in tears and looking for the anti-depressants. However, the majority of you who are complete geeks aren't too broken up as the HTC Lancaster was at best a low end p...
  • Samsung InstinctQ packin’ Android gets spied!

    Things for team Android are finally starting to pick up. What was a lackluster and slow moving year in 2008 is making strides in the right direction in 2009 as Android handsets from various manufacturers are starting to crop up. Sprint who had voiced interest in Android when it was originally released to the public on the G1 said that while it was interested, Android wasn't yet mature enough. Well folks, we all know the HTC Hero is coming to Sprint packin' Android and some mighty sweet feat...
  • Sense UI coming to all (Except those experiencing Google)
    by Mike
    Posted August 17th, 2009 at 5:52 am
    While eye candy and one's gravitation towards a particular UI is completely subjective, I myself find Android to be rather attractive and hip if not a tad "kiddish" in style. Again, some will disagree with me, labeling Android in its stock form too cartoonish for their tastest. Part of Android's open nature means vendors a free to skin the operating system until their hearts content in order to make it their own. HTC has done just that. Following their design saviness that somehow managed ...
