  • New “Poser” theme from Elecite brings new approach to customizing your theme
    by Mike
    Posted December 18th, 2009 at 2:04 pm
    The days of being able to simply change your wallpaper and calling that the end of your customizing rope are over. A new BlackBerry theme by Elecite takes a rather unique and exciting departure from the typical world of BlackBerry themes. Instead of merely having the ability to change your background and maybe move the icons a bit, Poser gives you a new, untold amount of options. The whole concept of the theme revolves around customizing an avatar and yes, wallpaper too. The number of ava...
  • Android catching up to iPhone, slowly eating off everyone’s plates.

    The iPhone may still be the defacto standard when it comes to anything in the consumer smartphone realm, but Android would like to remind you that they aren't giving up. In fact, according to the latest AdMob reports, Android is actually biting away at Apple's share as well as making mad grabs from a few other OS's dinner plates. The chart shows Apple still maintains a 2 : 1 lead as far as OS market share goes, however, Android is again closing that gap. Of all the members present, Symbia...
  • Tour with trackpad and WiFi (Essex/9650) seen in Sprint garb
    by Mike
    Posted December 17th, 2009 at 10:02 am
    The BlackBerry Tour is by far the best CDMA BlackBerry yet. It has style, power, and sophistication. But one glaring omission -- WiFi -- fails to earn it a "buy" rating in my book. Remember, no matter how good your carrier, there will always be dead spots. The Tour 2/Essex/9650 is no secret. It's been rumored about and talked about for many months. In fact, shortly after (as in days) after the original Tour, talk of an updated model with WiFi and a trackpad were heard. Now that actual p...
  • BlackBerry theme mecca “” launches redesigned site. 50% site wide discounts ensue.

    BlackBerry users, especially those with an eye for customization and design have probably went through at least a couple of themes on the cherished Canadian born phones. One of the best premium theme designing sites located at have continually pushed the envelope of the BlackBerry theme world. Back when animations were just beginning to pick up steam and still helluva hard to incorporate into themes, Elecite was at the forefront weeding their way through. It's hard work no doubt. ...
  • White House phone inventory goes old school…
    by Mike
    Posted December 14th, 2009 at 9:34 pm
    While we'd like to think of that the White House of all places in the country would employ some sort of high tech form of mobile device inventory, from the picture above we can see that simply isn't the case. No sir. There isn't any advanced monitoring chip, no fingerprint/BlackBerry add-on, and no retina scanner built into the camera. It's good 'ol sticky notes for the fine leaders of our country. The only sad thing that I've come to realize is that a politician ("Rice" in the picture a...
  • Bolt Browser can finally take the reigns from the decrepit BlackBerry browser with 1.6 update.

    Some will be quick to point out that I don't use a BlackBerry anymore. So how could I possibly know as to the actual real world amazingness the Bolt BlackBerry browser provides? I have a wife who is a devout CrackBerry user. 'Nough said. One of the biggest complaints of BlackBerry users everywhere is the browser. With Bolt 1.6 comes the revelation that finally we can distance ourselves from the coding nightmare that is the BB Browser. Even though OS 4.3.2 5.0 promises a greatly improved br...
  • BeeJive multi-IM client for BlackBerry moves to 2.0
    by Mike
    Posted December 7th, 2009 at 8:53 am
    Fancy the BlackBerry do you? If you have any number of friends or colleagues that you converse with on a regular basis, you've no doubt encountered the various IM services that are available. Talking to individuals on all of those separate accounts used to be a chore -- until multi-chat apps came along that is. BeeJive IM (formerly "JiveTalk") is by far the best looking and performing multi-chat app for BlackBerry. Back in my BlackBerry days, I used BeeJive. It was fast, easy to use, and a ...
  • BerryWeather 2.0 allows desktop weather background and more!
    by Mike
    Posted December 7th, 2009 at 6:12 am
    Back in my BlackBerry days when I took a brief hiatus from my iPhone to rekindle the love fest that got me hooked on smartphones to begin with, I stumbled across a pretty good weather app called BerryWeather. It wasn't terribly deep or full of features but it looked pretty nice to most eyes -- something many BlackBerry apps simply can't claim. I have since strayed from my roots but do find it interesting to keep up with BlackBerry app news most days. If you're looking for a fairly robust and ...
  • Winterize your Berry with HedoneDesign’s “SnowTime” theme.
    by Mike
    Posted December 4th, 2009 at 8:22 am
    With the release of BlackBerries packing faster processors means faster navigation, better performance in applications, and for those with an eye towards design -- cleaner, more premium themes. In the case of HedoneDesign's new SnowTime BlackBerry theme, those who are absolutely infatuated with winter, snow, and everything that Christmas memories bring will find this new theme quite a treat. The main idea here is simple and elegant. You'll notice the homescreen only features a couple of user ...
  • Snowman theme brings holiday cheer and animation to your BlackBerry
    by Mike
    Posted November 30th, 2009 at 8:54 pm
    It used to be that BlackBerry themes of years and devices past were best in their static form. A few clever and crafty theme developers deviated from the standard BlackBerry theme and added bits of animation here and there. The only problem is that older BlackBerry devices were grossly underpowered with a meager 312MHz processor meaning any animation found in themes resulted in slow, stuttery navigation and an overall sub-par user experience. That was then, this is now: 600+ MHz BlackBerries ...
  • BlackBerry 9100 (Stratus) gets highly detailed on video.
    by Mike
    Posted November 30th, 2009 at 10:50 am
    If the video that revealed itself a week or two back showcasing the upcoming SureType BlackBerry 9100 wasn't quite the greatest thing you'd ever seen (/sarcasm), this new video may come a tad bit closer. The above motion picture clip features a much more thorough tour around the 9100 (Stratus') hardware and software offerings. Going by what we see in the vid, it looks like a rock solid device to keep the SureType line of devices relevant and alive. Just in case you're short on time, you can...
  • Get that Android 2.0 look for BlackBerry: BeDroid [BlackBerry Theme]
    by Mike
    Posted November 25th, 2009 at 11:46 am
    Though not everyone's personal favorite, Android 2.0 is an often replicated UI. Even though it hasn't really changed much from previous iterations of the OS, subtle differences in icons and other UI elements did receive a freshening up. BlackBerry users, especially those who love change are always looking for that next theme to get their fix on if only for a short while. If you fit the bill and are in fact looking for that "fix", you're definitely going to want to check out the "BeDroid" them...
