Episode 33: BlackBerry Thunder Questions, IM Head-to-Head and The Smartphone Challenge (BlackBerry Cool Podcast)


The BlackBerry Cool Podcast Episode 33 July 12

It certainly wasn’t a quiet week at BlackBerry Cool HQ. With barely any time to recover from back-to-back national holidays, we learned that Bell and Telus are trying to charge us for incoming SMS, the BlackBerry Thunder may not be the BlackBerry Thunder, and the BlackBerry Javelin may be here before Christmas. Oh, and let’s not forget the release of the sequel to the most hyped mobile device, ever.

On the home front, Simon was able to piece together the mother of all BlackBerry IM client reviews while also providing an in-depth guide to everything you’d want to know about The Smartphone Challenge (trust us, this is something you want to know about).

Sorry for the late post, but it was so we could debut our wicked new podcast banner. You’ll find podcast downloading/streaming options, as well as links to all the relevant posts, after the jump. Enjoy!

BlackBerry Cool Podcast: WES 08 Day 1


WES 2008 PodcastSorry for the delay in getting this up, folks. Simon and I basically passed out at our laptops last night, and iTunes apparently doesn’t think I know how to edit an .xml page (they’re right).

But it’s up now! Sit in rapt attention as Simon and I discuss how good the food is here, and how much we LOVE the BlackBerry Bold.

You can grab the MP3, XML, or iTunes. We also have a streaming option after the jump. Post a comment and let us know what you think!

BlackBerry newbies blog about ‘their first time’


QuicklyBored LogoThe delirious post monkeys over at our sister site QuicklyBored recently received BlackBerrys to increase productivity (i.e., they wanted a raise, so we gave them some of our hand-me-downs instead). Since then, they’ve been blogging like crazy, describing both the joys and the frustrations involved in their new addiction. Our boy Simon also sat down with them for a podcast on the BlackBerry’s mobile entertainment capabilities and the most recent BlackBerry 9000 rumors. You can listen to it here, and check out some of their most recent posts below.

Feel free to mock their blatant newbery, but make sure to also include some handy tips to help them along their way. The BlackBerry community takes care of its own, after all.

The BlackBerry Cool Podcast: Boy Genius Interviewed (Pt. 1)


Boy Genius LogoBlackBerry Cool podcasts come out less often than we’d like, but when we the ‘Cool does get around to it, we like to try and make them as awesome as possible. And what could possibly be more awesome than an interview with the Boy Genius? Sure, we’ve done text interviews with him before, but live from BG HQ is an entirely different matter.

BlackBerry Cool EIC Douglas Soltys went 10 rounds with the BG, clocking in more than 2 1/2 hours of audio (!), so look for part two to come soon. Until then, enjoy us talking about RIM’s recent product lineup, the 9000 series BlackBerrys, BES/OS 5.0, whether or not RIM understands cool, and oh yeah, BG’s plans to work with RIM.

P.S. This podcast was recorded the day before we broke the news on AT&T neutering the BlackBerry 8820, so it wasn’t addressed in the podcast. However, be amazed at how ominously pertinent our conversation regarding the Apple/ATT&T/RIM triumvirate was.
