Cingular Pearl makes debut appearance

Tuesday, October 31st, 2006

There’s still ho’s and hum’s about the release of Cingular’s 8100. Thankfully Engadget Mobile was able to point us to an image of the Cingular-branded Pearl. The noticeables are obviously the name-branding, but check out the new colouring. It’s only been a couple of months and already the Pearl’s going grey. […]

iTunes? More like pearlTunes

Tuesday, October 31st, 2006

Happy now? One of the industry leaders in connectivity solutions, Information Appliance Associates, has put together a little bit of goodness with pearlTunes, the “first ever tool to automatically copy & convert unlicensed music from Apple iTunes”. Unliscened music, eh? Well, it’s a start.

“pearlTunes copies MP3s and other unprotected digital music from […]

Hallowe’en brings out the “BooBerry”

Tuesday, October 31st, 2006

I was hoping there’d be ridiculous postings today of people dressing up like BlackBerrys and BlueTooth headsets for trick or treating, but alas, the inbox remains pictureless (the day’s young, though).
But Rogers got some folks into the holiday spirit with their annual Halloween Writing Contest, inviting kids to complete a story that’s first […]

Olive Tree has new reasons to give thanks and praise

Copy copy to your BlackBerry

Tuesday, October 31st, 2006

No, that’s not a typo. It’s my clever attempt at being… clever. Maximum Soft Corp. (potential slogan: “Now that’s really soft.”) has just rolled out a new RSS reader that’ll copy your choice news stories right to your palm (not THAT palm).
NewsCopier, compatible with all current BlackBerry devices, takes the latest […]

Rogers reports strong 3Q results

Tuesday, October 31st, 2006

It’s that time of the year. What does that even mean? Football? World Series? Hallowe’en? In our case, it means for a lot less candy and a lot more third quarter results. Rogers, the Canadian carrier of all things BlackBerry, has reported a solid third quarter, boasting a $2.35 […]

Maps maker marks 29% revenue increase

Monday, October 30th, 2006

Pardon the massive alliteration in the title. Tele Atlas - you know, the kind people who’re provided you with BlackBerry Maps - are reporting a third quarter revenue of $65 million, a 29% increase from this time last year. With BlackBerry Maps becoming an essential part of your devices these days, it wouldn’t […]

Verizon notes strong 3Q

Monday, October 30th, 2006

While I’m sure they’re not bathing in money, Verizon seems to have fared pretty well, or so it seems in the reports that surround their 3Q results. The current carrier of BlackBerrys 7250, 7130e, and 8703e reports their “third-quarter 2006 earnings were $2.0 billion, or 68 cents per share. This is an increase […]

Generation X author pushes the Pearl

Monday, October 30th, 2006

Few authors become the voice of a generation. Douglas Coupland’s not just the voice of a generation, he created the generation. The author of “Generation X”, the book that coined the term, as well as other pop-culture mainstays “Microserfs” and “All Families Are Psychotic” (amongst other works) has been busy promoting his latest […]
