  • Voice Search comes to Google Maps for BlackBerry


    There are two hazards to owning a BlackBerry in Manhattan, at least for me. I ignore friends and potential ex’s by constantly being on BB Messenger, checking e-mails, being on Facebook or playing BrickBreaker. The other factor is doing all of those things while walking along the streets. It’s not safe. Not one bit. Well, Google has made life a tad bit simpler by adding voice search… Read More

  • Four mystery phones appear on Verizon's Website [UPDATE]

    It’s common knowledge round these parts that Verizon probably has the best coverage, but their devices have been so-so. Oh, who am I kidding? The phones available on that network are about as atrocious as their customer service and rate plans. But their device lineup is certainly shaping up to take on the likes of T-Mobile.

Just because it came out on AT&T instead doesn’t mean you are a winner. But nonetheless, Boy Genius has got the hot unboxing action up on his site and boy is that Pearl looking mighty fine.

  • BlackBerry Pearl Gets AT&T Branding, Red Coat of Paint (So Does The Treo 680)

    Cingular—oh excuse me, I mean AT&T—just announced red editions of the BlackBerry Pearl and the Treo 680. (The Treo is officially “crimson.”) Both are available immediately. That in and of itself shouldn’t grab any headlines, but the Pearl is the first device that’s been given the full AT&T branding, dumb all lowercase logo and all. That, on the… Read More

  • No Red Blackberry Pearl For T-Mobile

    Over the weekend, some sites were posting rumors about a red Blackberry Pearl coming out. I e-mailed my peeps who do PR for T-Mobile and they say there will be no Blackberry Pearl in red or any other color coming out soon. Sorry office-working, corporate chicks – looks like you’ll have to settle on a black or white Pearl come Valentine’s Day. Read More

  • Blackberry Pearl + TeleNav GPS = Hearts

    I have before me a Blackberry Pearl from Cingular and a TeleNav GPS Receiver. Individually, the Pearl is one of the most desirable phones on the market. Packed within its ultra-svelte casing are some genuinely dynamic features. Although it’s small and attractive, it maintains Blackberry’s acclaimed productivity suite. I’ve used plenty of smartphones and I continue to find… Read More
