    BlackBerry users will want to take a minute or two out of their hectic schedule today in order to fulfill one app update that's worth grabbing. The popular Bolt Browser has been updated to 2.1. With it comes enhanced Facebook integration as well as an updated webkit engine. The latter of which is always considered a good thing as such updates usually beget speed. And we all know how much rendering speed means in the mobile sphere. But speed isn't everything. Namely, tabbed browsing,...
  • BlackBerry OS 6.0 pictures leaked!

    BlackBerry fanatics, today is quite a special day. OS 5.0 may have been somewhat of a letdown, lacking in new features that the "5.0" moniker would otherwise seem to suggest. But 6.0 has been promised to take the BlackBerry OS deeper into the mainstream consumer markets. Of course, it's all talk until RIM actually steps up and produces. On that note, judging by the 6.0 screenshots BGR scored from one of his sources, I'd say that at least considering the UI department, RIM is finally starting...
  • Really have a thing for Firefox? Then pick up a pair of FireSox…

    Of all the tech brands to sport and "how" to sport them, taking the popular webkit browser, Firefox, and transforming it into a foot warmer is borderline odd/funny/weird. Ok, foot warmer isn't quite accurate. Socks is a better classification. Choosing socks is an odd one though. If you're really proud of your geeky lifestyle, why put in on an article of clothing that few will ever see? So how about it: Would you wear Firefox-esque FireSox? (Say that 5 times fast....) The Daily What >...

    Ask any consumer minded BlackBerry user what they think of the BlackBerry browser as they sit there and look on at other much more capable browsers from companies such as Apple, Google, Opera, and so on. The BlackBerry browser has for many years, been regarded as one of the weakest links in an otherwise rock solid mobile platform. That all changed last summer when RIM boughtTorch Mobile, a company who's webkit based mobile browser performed favorably on it's own. Since the purchase, the Black...
  • RIM to slingshot past the competition with uber browser in 2010?

    Make no mistake, RIM's current BlackBerry browser sucks and sucks big time. It's always sucked. Those who disagree obviously aren't using the internet as it was meant to be used -- flash, javascript, ajax, and so on. Flash is still a sticking point for many other mobile browsers in the market but the rest of that list is a rather common affair now. After acquiring Torch Mobile last year, rumors and speculation of a completely revamped BlackBerry browser almost immediately began. After a...
  • Prototype BlackBerry with touchscreen, slide-out qwerty, and webkit browser moved to prototype stage. Release in 2010?

    I remember the day that I read about the rumors of a touchscreen BlackBerry. I was sitting in Chicago O'Hare Airport waiting for a flight to Houston. At that time, scouring the specs on BGR's site left my jaw dropping and my heart racing. That was the pinnacle of my CrackBerry days. I have since moved on to many different platforms though my enthusiasm for the BlackBerry platform has never truly waned. All it will take is one breakthrough device (with better software of course) and my lusts...

    Spend any time surfing the mobile web? If you do so using a BlackBerry of any type, I'm sure you know the utter catastrophe that unfurls before your eyes each and every time you try to navigate to the web page of your choice. 3rd party solutions such as Opera mini and Bolt have until now given us worthwhile solutions that make browsing an outright joy. Still, in the age of the mobile internet, having your own slam dunk browser is key. Look no further than Mobile Safari on the iPhone and the ...
  • Forget flash, iPhone will display animation and 3D using CSS and Webkit
    by Mike

    Flash is the latest craze these days.  The iPhone, among others are constantly knocked for not including flash.  The few phones that brag of their flash content don't do all that well in handling it because flash isn't built for mobile browsers.  This means that often flash content won't scale appropriately as well choppy playback because flash is pretty CPU intensive.   There is another option.  Animation and 3D support in CSS!  And guess what, the iPhone and iPod touch already have i...
