The massive BlackBerry that affected millions of users across several continents has finally come to an end. Mike Lazaridis, CEO of BlackBerry’s parent company Research in Motion (RIM), appeared on a YouTube video posted early on Thursday, October 13 for the benefit of subscribers and technology news journalists. Lazaridis offered apologies and admitted that his [...]
It’s no secret that Research In Motion’s (RIM) market share numbers have been on a slide lately. You can blame Apple’s continued popularity and Android’s surging adoption rates for that. The folks at RIM know that if they want to be around in five years, they need to step up their game. A brand-new lineup [...]
There is a lot happening with BlackBerry lately–it’s about time. It seems as if BlackBerry has fallen far behind competition in the smartphone race and I was beginning to lose hope. So much so, that I recently (like yesterday) opted to leave the BlackBerry family to join the cool kids over at Android. They seem [...]
Sigh…this comes as heartbreaking news to me. The reviews for the BlackBerry tablet have come back and let’s just say that these reviews have been less than stellar.

Despite the notable absence of a Google booth at the CES and the fact that Chrome looks dead on arrival, Google’s technology is still stealing the show.
The BlackBerry Playbook is set to come out, officially signaling RIM’s (Research in Motion) entry into the tablet market. The Playbook is supposed to be a main rival to the iPad, however, since Apple owns and develops in-house all the technology that enables the long battery life and superior experience that iPad users enjoy, it will be at least initially difficult for RIM to square off against the giant.
After the April release of Apple’s iPad, and the following release of Samsung’s Galaxy, Consumer Electronics Show attendees are anticipating a huge showing of tablets at this year’s event. Some are even speculating over 100 new tablets will be debuted, including one from Blackberry manufacturer RIM and a highly anticipated tablet from Motorola. This is [...]
The new smart phone to be released by Finnish giant Nokia Corp, the E7, will be delayed until after the holiday season.

But Nokia is sticking to quality over the potential or sales this year.
