BlackBerryCool Roundup for the Week of July 5th

Comments

This week brought some fun editorial content worth checking out. The post “Dear BlackBerryCool: Is this a Contest a Hoax?” brought quite a few laughs. We’re still receiving emails from users who entered this contest and are shocked to discover that the contest is fake and the email doesn’t work. An email today from BBCool reader Dezray says: “I send the email to people I know and everything and guess what I don’t get a phone!”. Shocking! On a more positive note, there is a cool BlackBerry contest going on right now. You can win an African safari, a diving trip to the Great Barrier Reef, or a Costa Rican rainforest trip by catching the “Live Bold. Be Bold.” tour in your city. Other cool news this week includes the launch of Service Pack 2 for BES as well as video of the BlackBerry 9800 Torch Slider, 9670 Clamshell Oxford and Curve 9300 Kepler.
