Bacon on BlackBerry: BMWs, Syncing and the ole’ 850

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

The BlackBerry Cool office is filled with a bunch of tech junkies who know everything there is to know about BlackBerrys. However, we’re so busy pounding the pavement and bringing you the latest in BlackBerry news that we don’t have that much time to answer all the questions you send us. So we asked Magmic’s […]

Can BlackBerrys keep a secret?

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

There’s been an intriguing article floating around the Supernet the past couple of days about the dangers of not hard wiping your mobile devices before selling them off or getting rid of them. Apparently, the flash memory common to most mobiles and smartphones can easily be convinced to recall old emails, sms or address book […]

American Workers Have More BlackBerrys

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

The AEI has just released data of their most recent research study on the American worker in 2006. While they’ve compiled a whole bundle of interesting facts, there’s really only one that should interest the keen BlackBerry Cool reader. According to AEI’s survey, 12% of American workers now have a Palm Pilot, Blackberry, or similar […]

BlackBerrys… on a plane!

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

No it’s not the sequel to the latest Samuel L. Jackson, thriller/comedy. It’s what is going to happen to passengers flying on Irish aircraft carrier Ryanair’s flights starting next year. All passengers flying one of Ryanair’s Boeing 737 jets from Edinburgh to Dublin and Shannon airports will be able to use their BlackBerry and any […]

RIM brings BlackBerry 7100i to Mexico, Peru

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

Rim and NII Holdings jointly announced today the launch of the BlackBerry 7100i on the Nextel Peru and Nextel Mexico networks. So, Nextel and the 7100i — you know that could mean only one thing: that’s right, “push-to-talk” digital walkie talkie technology. Those lucky Nextel customers.
“The popularity of BlackBerry continues to grow across Latin America […]

We’re Moving

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

If you’ve noticed that posts have been a little sporadic this week, there’s a good reason (and it’s not just our standard laziness): BlackBerry Cool is moving! That’s right, today we’re escaping our tiny little digs above the “Gentlemen’s Club” and moving into a plush office in the heart of downtown Ottawa! We’ve very excited […]

Q gets (much needed) update

Wednesday, August 30th, 2006

Awhile back we let you know that Motorola’s AKU2 update had kind of stalled. All you Q fans out there can now rest you troubled heads, because the update has now been unleashed upon the masses (at least the US masses, still no dice for Canadian Q users). AKU2 will add Exchange-based push email, global […]

Verizon 8703e coming Friday, documentation leaked

Wednesday, August 30th, 2006

Engadget Mobile has posted what appears to be Verizon Wireless’ latest device roadmap. If we take the image at face value (and ignore the 2005 ‘typo’), that means we can reasonably expect the BlackBerry 8703e to launch September 1st, which is this Friday. Sounds pretty good, considering we were expecting an announcement on Monday. While […]

RIM knows who Boy Genius is

Wednesday, August 30th, 2006

Yep you heard us right. We have the straight word coming from an inside source (call him Mr. Snap) that RIM knows who is leaking all their high-tech secrets. And they’re ok with it — for now. Step inside and we’ll tell you all about it.

Now, before we go any further we should let you […]

More Excalibur/XDA Cosmo shots

Wednesday, August 30th, 2006

Coming via the::unwired, we’ve got some new screenshots of HTC’s rebranded Excalibur, the XDA Cosmo. Nothing too special (unless you like getting up close and personal with an ugly smartphone), but there’s one item of note. Check the image above and you’ll see a QWERTZ keyboard. Those crazy Germans, what will they think of next?
