Posted by Dan H. on Sep 12, 2011 | 8 Comments

While companies like Google, Apple, and Microsoft have been pumping out new devices with modern features, RIM has been lagging behind. They’ve been saying that they’re bringing QNX to BlackBerry smartphones, but time is ticking away for the Canadian phone manufacturer. RIM responded to this with three new devices running their new OS, BlackBerry 7: the Bold 99xx, Torch 9850/9860, and the Torch 9810. We have been using...

Review: BlackBerry PlayBook

Posted by CR H. on May 01, 2011 | 27 Comments

It’s pretty crazy to think that only a little over one year ago Apple introduced the iPad. Previous attempts at tablet computing by numerous companies had been complete failures.

Just as Google responded to the iPhone with Android and more recently Honeycomb on the Motorola...

Don’t want an iPad(2)? Well looks as if RIM’s tablet is one step closer to hitting retails shelves with this FCC passing.

But as you see, they’ve passed three different variations of it (16GB, 32GB, 64GB). Hopefully now we’ll get some official word soon from RIM about when...
