    Browsing themes downloads on a BlackBerry device isn't exactly fun, intuitive, or fast. Having a "theme browser/store" in a mobilized version is something BlackBerry users have been clamoring for. CrackBerry, in conjunction with MobiHand are finally releasing such a store bringing easy and fast theme browsing to BlackBerry handhelds. Searching through themes via Category, Newness, etc. give you plenty of ways to find what you want. Go ahead and give it a try. Find out more about the Crack...
  • WiFi problems appearing on the BlackBerry Storm 2

    The BlackBerry Storm 2 is an infant in the public's eye yet reports are already circulating this morning that a rather nasty WiFi bug has made itself known. The issue stems around the device being unable to fully connect to a WiFi network which of course means no data and simultaneous voice for you. Word is that the beef should lie with Verizon, not RIM. Understandable, Verizon is a bit of a newcomer to this found WiFi technology on smartphones.... There is a temporary "fix" though that te...

    Mobile users can watch the video here It doesn't seem like that long ago that custom "bottom dock" BlackBerry themes were the "it" thing with theme developers anxious over a UI layout that seemed rather simple. After watching the clip above, you can truly see how quickly BlackBerry themes have progressed in the relatively short time span of 1-2 years. The particular them showcased above was created by "Z Man Designs" and is titled "Transitions". If you like the idea of organized and neatly...
  • Spotify coming to UK BlackBerries in early 2010?

    Music streamers and UK dwellers rejoice. If you're a BlackBerry user who has been scowling in envy at your fellow iPhone toting friends with their fancy pants Spotify iPhone app, take comfort in knowing that your own version is coming soon. Very soon. Early 2010 to be exact if mocoNews is correct. While the Spotify app for iPhone is an awesome app, not everyone wants an iPhone. Let's also not forget that the BlackBerry version, as well as every other version of Spotify will stream in the ba...
  • Tmo 9700 decides to stay home a few more days. Not showing up until November 16th party.

    Products release dates getting pushed back are never fun at all. Starting with a sentence like that, you know that something now so smile inducing is following. Word is that the much lusted after T-Mobile BlackBerry 9700 decided to hold of it's coming out party until November 16th. You know T-Mobile better watch out. Starting a string of delays isn't fun for anyone and this delay in particular is starting to remind me of the delay after delay style launch AT&T;'s Bold suffered from. We can o...
  • Official BlackBerry Storm OS mutilates custom themes! [Update -- Fix!]
    by Mike
    Posted October 27th, 2009 at 2:57 pm
    **Update: There's a fix folks. Find it here. Disappointment for sure. It looks as if a nasty bug in the official BlackBerry 5.0 software renders custom BlackBerry Storm themes ugly and not quite so functional. The image above is from Kyle over at BlackBerry Cool and foreshadows a tidal wave of disappointment for all new BlackBerry Storm users who pick up a model with 5.0 pre-installed as well as those who have already upgraded. In this particular issue, the phone in question is the ...
  • RIM sponsoring U2’s 2010 North American Tour.
    by Mike
    Posted October 27th, 2009 at 6:59 am
    Apparently things went well with the last co-op between U2 and RIM because as they did this past year, RIM will again be the title sponsor for U2's 2010 North American tour. Taking on such a challenge is not for the faint of heart or light of wallet. Copious amounts of time, energy, and money are needed to put on such shows and tours. I applaud RIM for reaching out into the consumer space and trying to be "consumer cool". Now, let's just hope they do a better job than this past year's (2009...

    What's today? For me in (EST) I'm still staring at Thursday on the computer. *sigh*. If you're in the same slump, cheer up! For October 28th is but a mere 6 days away. You know what that means? The BlackBerry Storm 2 which is exponentially leaps and bounds ahead of it's more trouble ridden, 1st gen brother. The image above comes from CrackBerry via some brave Verizon worker who was able to snap a shot of the Verizon intranet page in all it's underground glory. With the Storm2, text input ...
