kid doofus reviews.. Garmin Mobile 10/XT - Part 1

Friday, April 27th, 2007

Today we’re going to look at the Garmin Mobile XT GPS solution for Blackberry, as well as their Mobile 10 GPS puck. Not to be confused with a hockey puck, the Garmin puck gives GPS capabilities to non-GPS Blackberry devices, so pretty much every Blackberry not called the 7520 and 8800. The review will be […]

Weekly Contest: What is RIM’s future?

Friday, April 27th, 2007

No foolin’: it has been a busy week of BlackBerry news — something that our boy Thought can easily attest to. We had announcements of the Virtual BlackBerry Network, the latest and greatest CDMA/GSM (!!) BlackBerry, and news that the true repercussions of RIM’s stock scandal have yet to be felt. The BBCool office can’t […]


Friday, April 27th, 2007

Here’s some news: recognizing the depth and range of BlackBerry knowledge contained within the mind of BBCool Editor in Chief Douglas Soltys, the famed Mobile Computing Authority has asked him to appear on their podcast this Sunday. Best of all, the podcast will be recorded live and will allow for listener participation via TalkShoe.
Make sure […]

RIM offers more WES 2007 deets

Friday, April 27th, 2007

With the countdown to WES 2007 now sitting at a little more than a week left, RIM is picking up the pace with the details and has released full event details. What’s perhaps most exciting (even more exciting than this) is news that Canada’s own Malcolm Gladwell, author of “Blink” and “The Tipping Point”, will […]

All Aboard the Global Data Roaming Train

Friday, April 27th, 2007

For some reason, Bell’s support for the BlackBerry 8830 fell under the radar for not only us, but our buddies over at Engadget. In any case, BCE joins the ranks of Verizon and Sprint as carriers of the new data roaming BlackBerry. Considering Bell’s meager selection of BlackBerrys right now, the 8830 is just […]

U.S. Prosecutors investigate RIM, BlackBerry faithful nervously play with collar

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

Whew, this is not the kind of news RIM stock-holders are looking to hear. According to Reuters, RIM is now the subject of an investigation by U.S. prosecutors about problems with their stock option grants. This investigation is in addition to the one being conducted by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Apparently, RIM has been […]

Sprint takes BlackBerry 7520 out back, hasn’t been heard from since

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

Not that we condone corporate espionage (publicly), but the leaked Sprint roadmap has pointed to the tragic passing of a respected member of the BlackBerry community, the beloved 7520. The GPS-enabled device is survived by his newborn grandson, the BlackBerry 8830. We encourage the patrons of the First Church of BBCool to step up to […]

Sprint PPC-6800 announced, targets laptop market

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

Sprint today has announced the HTC TyTN PPC-6800, sporting some bells but not all the whistles. While the CDMA device rocks a 2.0 Mpx camera, microSD slot, and Wi-Fi support (let’s not forget push email, either), it also features the lowly Windows Mobile 5.0 OS and no REV A EV-DO. You can go here for […]

Sidekick iD unboxed, 16-year old girls a-twitter

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

A quick and dirty follow-up to yesterday’s Hump Day Pr0n, we’ve got more nudie pics of a new gizmo out today – T-Mobile’s Sidekick iD. A meager hundred bucks after rebates, the iD is heavily geared towards a younger crowd who put price and instant messaging high on their priorities. Yahoo!, MSN and AOL messaging […]

RIM had two-hour notice of blackout, shrugs helplessly

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

There’s been some muttering that RIM knew about the blackout last week a solid two hours before it hit. A few folks reckon that BlackBerry users should have been able to get a heads up on the outage, but that might not be the case. Now, I’m no technician (they keep me around BBCool for […]
