BlackBerry Curve 8910 Accidentally On Display at CES 2010?



David of CB made an interesting discovery that the BlackBerry 8910 was accidentally unveiled at CES, and was only discovered well after CES had finished. After reviewing pictures from the CaseMate booth, it became clear that CaseMate had labeled a Curve 8910 as a Bold 9700. The two look very similar and it’s the lack of frets that really gives it away.

BlackBerry Presenter Review: A Little Lag and A Lot of Potential



I have the latest accessory from RIM called the BlackBerry Presenter: a means of displaying PowerPoint presentations from your BlackBerry to a projector. The way it works is fairly simple. To get started, you do the following:

  • Download the Presenter app to your BlackBerry.
  • Connect the Presenter to a power outlet.
  • Connect your projector to the Presenter.
  • Pair your BlackBerry to the Presenter.
  • Open a PowerPoint file and in the menu section select “Present”.

After using the device with several different types of PowerPoint presentations, I can say that this accessory had some serious drawbacks, but also more potential than any other accessory RIM has ever made.

BlackBerry Cool Roundup for the Week of January 11th


This was an interesting week for BlackBerry news. There was a ton of news I would file under WTF, including a BlackBerry getting God’s blessing, and the 9500 ending up in the Royal Collection. Of course the best news comes from Nan Palmero, BlackBerry Cool’s CES 2010 correspondent. He got some awesome footage of Xobni and LinkedIn for BlackBerry.

Chevy Volt BlackBerry App Demo at CES


We posted before about the Chevy Volt BlackBerry app, which interacts with the electric car to give you the ability to set charge times and get analytics about your energy usage.

Engadget got their hands on the app and while it has some limited functionality at the moment, it’s still a very useful applicaiton. The app lets you check the charging status, lock and unlock the vehicle, as well as it collects data you may find useful such as time spent driving on electric vs gas. I’m looking forward to more BlackBerry apps that interact with our cars, or even our homes and offices (eg Schlage).

The Official CES 2010 Mobile App Follow Me



We made a mistake posting the Boopsie app for CES 2010 and in fact the app you should be using is “coming soon” for Blackberry OS 5 devices. It is currently available for the iPhone and iPod Touch, so this may be of help to some BlackBerry users. With only 2 days left until CES, there is little time to launch the app but they also have a mobile site you can use at m.core-apps.com/2010ces.

Go to the CES 2010 Follow Me page for more information and to check back to see if the app is available.
