  • 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...
  • About the “revolutionary” Storm 2…

    I haven't yet touched and felt the new Storm 2 for myself. But I can assure you I will be heading to the local Verizon store today to give it a try. Am I going to buy one? No! But after reading Zdnet's review, my initial excitement at hardware based improvements on the latest iteration have effectively been squelched. I already knew that save for the re-worked touchscreen and some good 'ol WiFI, everything else in the physical sense was more or less the same. But I still hoped that those su...

    While not much can be done to save the not so greatness that plagues the first gen BlackBerry Storm, those looking to ride out the storm (no pun intended) and continue on with their trusty device have a few fixes coming their way this Sunday, October 25th. It is on this magnificent day that RIM will officially release the OS 5.0 upgrade. For CrackBerry fanatics needing a more specific number, note this OS as Besides some subtle UI tweaks here and there, users can expect to see thre...

    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 ...
  • YouTube app/icon getting pushed to Verizon Storm owners

    Have a thing for skateboarding dogs, fart lighting frat boys, and zany cats? YouTube has long been your go to haven for such videos. BlackBerry Storm owners on Verizon's network while able to manually download the YouTube app for sometime will now be greeted by a new YouTube icon on their desktop giving them a friendly reminder. The first time you click on the link you'll notice that it is merely a shortcut to download the actual app. After which the "icon" will launch an actual app. If yo...
  • Verizon showing some back-to-school BOGO/BOGA love.
    by Mike

    Forget BOGO. Verizon's back-to-school sale is now going by the acronym of BOGA. Instead of their usual buy one BlackBerry get a second free, you can now buy one BlackBerry and you can choose not only another BlackBerry, but any other Verizon device, USB modem, mifi, etc. Pretty sweet deal if you ask me. While you do have to weed your way through a rebate, the final outcome is still leaving you better off than if you hadn't come across this deal at all. Seems BlackBerries are becoming an e...
  • BlackBerry Storm 2 gets some more hands/eyes on!
    by Mike
    Posted August 10th, 2009 at 6:14 am
    I know. It's Monday morning. It's hard enough to wake up and crawl in to work let alone actually focus on small organizations and patterns of text on a screen and try to even remotely grab any of the information. Besides, we all know the saying: "A picture is worth a thousand words". So we'll give you just that. The BlackBerry Storm 2 was spotted recently getting some more hands and eyes on time with Benez Blog (German). While there isn't any new information or pictures that we haven't s...
  • Robotika brings Johnny 5 to your Blackberry Storm
    by Mike
    Posted June 2nd, 2009 at 1:50 pm
    Ok, while the Robot shown above in the Robotika theme doesn't really look anything like Johnny Five, it is the early afternoon and I'm running on 3 hours of sleep. I'm tired and my creative bubble burst long ago. Back on topic, the Robotika theme for the Blackberry Storm is a rather unique theme that I haven't see anything quite like yet. While the current fad seems to be iPhone-ish/rounded icons or a dark/glassy appearance, Robotika moves in the opposite direction with a bright physique co...
  • Mechanism Theme for Blackberry Devices w/ OS 4.6+

    *Some* Blackberry users who have been impatiently waiting for Eveek/Elecite to release a new Blackberry theme will finally have some new eye candy to trick out your Berry with. The latest theme, "Mechanism", has what looks like a sort of "radio dial" on the homescreen as well as a side dock which features 7 sliding user customizable icons. The look is hands down pretty unique. The words "awesome" and "sweet" come to mind. As mentioned previously, only devices with OS 4.6 or greater can tak...
  • Surepress: “I’m baaaaaaack”
    by Mike
    Posted May 28th, 2009 at 5:02 am
    While new info about the Storm 2 was revealed last week, most importantly, the observation that the Surepress "click" touchscreen was missing, would lead one to assume that said technology won't be present on RIM's next rendition of the love-it-or-hate-it Blackberry. However, after RIM CEO Mike Lazaridis sat down and layed the record straight at D7 yesterday, the Storm 2's typing abilities are now even more in question. Mr. Lazaridis was quoted as saying: "Surepress is here to stay", which a...
  • Storm2 gets spied and manhandled

    Posted May 21st, 2009 at 12:46 pm
    Those lucky people over at Engadget are the luckiest dudes in the business right now. They were able to sneak some quick hands on time with the Storm2, the only disappointing part being that a bug prevented them from doing pretty much anything besdies staring at the activation screen. GREAT NEWS!!! That half-baked/crappy surepress click screen is gone and has been replaced by a traditional (and much better) capacitive display. We can finally type faster and more accurately on the screen. *...
