ThoughtPiece: BlackBerry Users Have More Fun

May 10, 2007: 

In honor of those having all the fun at WES this week, and knowing that any serious article would be overwhelmed by all of the coverage from WES, I thought I’d offer up a more lighthearted column. So in that spirit I offer up 3 reasons why BlackBerry users have more fun:

BlackBerry Cool couldn’t possibly roll any harder, talks RIM with the Jim-Dog

May 09, 2007: 

One would think that after a long day of work, at the WES after after party (after after after party?), RIM co-CEO Jim Balsillie would want to sit back and take a load off. Not so: the Big B is always ready and eager to talk BlackBerry and the mobile space — and is easily [...]

How to track by GPS without being a stalker

May 09, 2007: 

Download the interview here.
The idea of GPS tracking might just be a little too creepy for some folks, but in Doug’s interview with Patrick Rousseau, from BlackLine GPS, one comment fundamentally sold me on the idea: “The number one call between two phones is ‘Where are you?’ “ Having the ability to seamlessly undercut [...]

Red Pearl sneaks under the radar

May 09, 2007: 

The blogging community is breathing a collective “WTF” over Rogers’ covertly released red Pearl. Doug eyeballed it during a keynote at WES which got him a little excited. Rogers is asking $249.99 with a 3-year hook in your cheek, just like all the others. While that might be the second red device out today, [...]

May 08, 2007: 

Hey guys. Just bumped into my good friend and long time BlackBerry Cool reader Mike Lazaridis on the showfloor, and he was gracious enough to pose for a picture. You da man, Mikey!

WES 2007 Rumors: The Next-Gen Pearl

May 08, 2007: 

Haven’t been posting as much as I’d like, but that’s because I had to dig deep for this dirt on the next-gen BlackBerry Pearl. That’s right, Pearl 2.0.
Now, obviously RIM always has something in the works for new devices, and with the Pearl being a runaway quasi-consumer success, it makes sense for them to [...]

Pre-WES analyst meeting boosts RIM stock

May 08, 2007: 

The analyst meeting yesterday obviously did good things for investors.
“On the gaining side, Research In Motion Ltd. (nasdaq: RIMM - news - people ) rose $4.19, or 2.9 percent, to $143.91 after a conference left analysts saying positive things about the Blackberry maker.”
Not a huge shocker. Things will probably keep [...]
