  • RIM: Disable the Storm's auto rotating main screen, please

    I have been using a BlackBerry Storm for about a month now and have came to like the phone. While I don’t have an iPhone love affair going on, it’s a solid phone I wouldn’t not recommended. (understand?) It has its quarks like any phone, but the single most annoying feature could – and should – be resolved by Research in Motion. You see the Storm auto rotates… Read More

  • BlackBerry Storm: The netbook redefined?

    Research In Motion’s founder and co-CEO, Mike Lazaridis, has cleared up some non-existent confusion about his company’s first touch screen device, the Storm — it’s a netbook. Wait, what? Sorry, can you repeat that? I must have misheard you Mr. co-CEO. In a recent interview, when asked “Would you consider Netbooks as your competitors?,” Mr. Lazaridis… Read More

  • A knife and a storm/a bottle and a cork: The Storm gets jabbed

    If you heard PHa complaining a few days ago about the Storm, you’d want to stab the thing too.

Fortunately for those ready to throw their Storm out to sea, some folks at RIM (or Verizon… Read More

  • The BlackBerry Storm has issues – at least six of them, in fact

    With hype comes scrutiny. Build consumer interest in a device up to that which Verizon has built the BlackBerry Storm, and you’re bound to hear the complaints.

  • Verizon revises the BlackBerry Storm ship-by date

    CrackBerry addicts that didn’t get their sweaty thumbs on RIM’s first touchscreen device on launch day, should get their mobile phones a bit sooner than expected. Previously, Verizon had a ship-by date of December 15th but now the product page is showing December 8th. The large “Limited Availabilty” warning is still present but hopefully the phones will get into eager… Read More

  • BlackBerry Storm torn apart and mysteries revealed

    All the rage behind the BlackBerry Storm seems to be the clickable screen. It isn’t the OS, email capabilities, or media player but the clickable screen so the obligatory teardown focuses on that mystery. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem that RIM developed any screen clicking magic rather installing a a single button underneath the screen’s backplate. Read More

  • BlackBerry Storm OS downgraded at the last minute?

      Here come some numbers with decimals, so get ready. BGR is speculating that batches of the BlackBerry Storm that had been shipped with OS version 4.7.0.82 may have caused some sort of glitch.
