Blackberry Playbook Review!

blackberry-playbook-review-2

Probably one of the best tablets I saw at CES 2011 was the Blackberry Playbook, which sports a TI OMAP dual-core 1Ghz processor (which is comparable to Tegra 2), brilliant 7-inch screen, minimalist design with just two buttons, Palm Pre-like UI (user interface) which is super-easy to use, and topped with real-time operating system that supports Adobe Flash, Air, and development on Java like

For Blackberries lovers out there,e here’s some spy hands-on review of the new Blackberry Bold 9800 running the new Blackberry OS 6.

First thoughts:

Looks pretty good, perhaps the best Blackberry OS so far, RIM has finally updated their phones to smartphone standards of today.  Of course, RIM is still the leader of smartphones for businesses, I just think they will do better by adding more functionalities such as a WebKit-based browser shown above.

It’s been a long time s

Verizon Hack – How to Unlock Blackberry Storm!

video://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-KtyYMcYQM

If for some reason you need to unlock you Blackberry Storm and use it on a GSM network instead of Verizon’s CDMA, here’s a video showing you how to do it. Of course, the video will point you to a site where you can pay for an unlock code. OR you can also call up Verizon and ask them for the unlock code! (It might take a bit longer but it’s free that way.)

Unlocking for Sprint Blackberry and other recent Blackberries should be similar.

BlackBerry Stops a Bullet!

http://www.blogcdn.com/www.engadget.com/media/2010/02/bb-bullet-case-1.jpg

Woman in Fresno, California (where one of my friends live) Ohio, was shot by accident by her boyfriend on the leg.  Luckily, the bullet hit her Blackberry and saved her life (leg).  We know now for sure smartphones/iPods can save lives from gun shots.  (Also see when iPod stops bullet couple years back here.)

You know what, if you carry two smartphones, you can increase your safety margin.  I carry a Nexus One and a Palm Pre just for this very reason… (really no… j/k)

Blackberry Storm 2 First Images and Gizmodo thinks Storm 2 is a Piece of SH**!

storm-2-6

Here’s some of the first images of the new Blackberry Storm 2.  This grabbed my attention because part of the reason why I didn’t buy a new Blackberry was because the new Blackberries really sucked. (no real improvements over previous versions other than new packaging)

Don’t get me wrong, I used to LOVE my Blackberry (8830), it was the most versatile piece of gadget I had as it fit in my pocket sn

Blackberry saves a Skiers from Falling 700 Feet!

blackberry

Here’s a rather interesting story where a skier got wedged between two rocks.  The blackberry in his pocket made his body just wide enough to fall 700 feet and saved his life.

At first I thought the Blackberry saved the skier by letting him call 911 but I guess there’s more uses with Blackberries than just calling the emergency department.

Very interesting, I am sure someone is already using a Blackberry to put butter on their bread already. (Congrats to David

Blackberry So Secure that Criminals Like to Use Its Encryption Technology!

blackberry1

It’s interesting to note that Blackberries may be pretty secure, so long as you are using the Enterprise Server, which I don’t.

I don’t believe that the Blackberries are THAT secure, it’s a machine, you simply can’t rely too much on machines.  I am sure there’s a better way to secure your data but for right now, I do agree using Blackberry Enterprise Server might be the smartest thing for thugs and drug dealers alike to do.

So if you are a high-profile gangster, make sure to get that Blackberry, not the i

BlackBerry 9630 Niagara Spotted in the Wild with Qualcomm CDMA!

9630-2

Tight, looks like Blackberry 9630 is not far away for people like me who’s still holding onto the 8830.  Anyways, it’s a good news that the 9630 will probably like its predecessors but better, faster, and meaner.  Lookin’ forward to it RIM.

Not only is the phone turned on this time, but we’ve also caught it lying across some shagadelic leopard print. Additionally, the fine folks over at the Crackberry foru
