BlackBerryCool Roundup for the Week of April 26th

Comment

Of course the big news this week was the annual BlackBerry show WES. This year, RIM announced BlackBerry MVS 5, the Pearl 3G and the Bold 9650. We also received a demo of the upcoming BlackBerry 6, that comes with the latest BlackBerry WebKit browser. It was a great show and I recommend you scroll down to check out BlackBerryCool’s unique coverage of the show.

The latest devices look really great, and RIM’s product line seems to be on a slow and steady chart of improvement. Adoption of BlackBerrys globally is exponential, and if you’re looking for some insight into where the company is heading, make sure to listen/read everything that Mike Lazaridis said during the conference. Hit up the articles after the jump and take the weekend to get caught up.
