Breaking Down the BlackBerry 8800 (and friends?)

Friday, September 29th, 2006

When we got the word late last Friday about pics of the BlackBerry 8800 (that’s right Engadget, BlackBerryForums had it first), we weren’t expecting to be greeted with no less than 3 devices and talk of “Crimson” and “Indigo”. The forums have been ablaze this week with speculation about what that means, and we’re here […]

Weekend Contest: What matters more?

Friday, September 29th, 2006

It’s been a busy week in BlackBerry news. The week started (or, rather, last week finished) with news of the BlackBerry 8800 and it’s incarnations, and then we sat on our hands until Thursday with the announcement of RIM’s incredible Q2 results. So for this week’s question, we’re asking this: Which matters […]

BlackBerry Cool Hardware Guide updated

Friday, September 29th, 2006

Since all of the news today circles around the RIM stock and how well it’s doing, we decided to take some initiative and take care of the piles of paper on our desk. That included updating our beloved hardware guide. We’ve added guides on the 7100i, 7105t, the 8700c, 8700g, 8703e and what […]

RIM’s results cleverly called “Su-PEARL-ative”

Friday, September 29th, 2006

Thought’s been working overtime and has been kind enough to slide us this article in the Wall Street Journal regarding RIM’s Q2 results. And since that’s all people seem to be talking about today in the BlackBerry world, we’ll fuel the fire with this. RBC Capital’s Mike Abramsky calls the results “Su-PEARL-ative”, and […]

T-Mobile’s “MyFaves” favours five

Friday, September 29th, 2006

An interesting note to send to T-Mobile users, courtesy Gizmodo. T-Mobile’s “MyFaves”, a service that allows you to make unlimited calls to five numbers for free, launches next week. The screenshot to your left features the MyFaves interface on a Pearl, and suggests that you can choose different icons to distingush between […]

Magmic’s “Brain Up” reviewed

Friday, September 29th, 2006

Our close pals over at QuicklyBored have been kind enough to shoot us their review of “Brain Up” - available for your BlackBerry from Magmic. I’m glad they’re on top of these new games as I think I’m still in my “Duck Hunt” phase. Read on.

The story behind Brain Up is that you […]

Rogers acknowledges the Pearl

Friday, September 29th, 2006

After a couple of weeks of refreshing, information about the Pearl on the official Rogers web site has surfaced. Since the device is being released really soon, I’m surprised about the lack of hype North of the border from both RIM and Rogers. Rogers is quoted as saying it’s the BlackBerry that “everyone’s […]

RIM stock soars after Q2 webcast

Friday, September 29th, 2006

Even after the webcast was through, the news kept coming. Reports from BusinessWeek show that RIM’s stock took off after the final bell rung yesterday with almost a 20% increase.

“Shares rose 19 percent, or $16.74, to $102.80, in premarket trading after closing at $86.06 Thursday on the Nasdaq. The stock has trade […]

RIM CFO Jim Kavelman talks about “aggressive” road maps

Friday, September 29th, 2006

Jim Kavelman, the unsung hero of yesterday’s webcast (who can really compete with Balsillie?), had a lot but also so little to say about RIM’s upcoming plans. I know specifics can never really be fully revealed, but his slight vagueness leaves a chalky taste in my mouth.

“We have a very aggresive road map on […]

Jim Balsillie’s Q2 coverage

Friday, September 29th, 2006

After losing my connection to the webcast yesterday, my whole-hearted thanks go to Russ over at BBHub for his continuous coverage.
Appears as though Mr. Balsillie had quite a few things to give his take on yesterday, so without further delay, let’s see what he had to say.

- New product launches with disippation of […]
