BlackBerry Bold 9780 review

Still a killer QWERTY communicator

BlackBerry Bold 9780  . Phones, Mobile phones, BlackBerry Bold 9780, BlackBerry, BlackBerry 6, RIM,  0

The BlackBerry Bold 9780 takes RIM’s flagship QWERTY device – the Bold 9700 – gives it a fresh new operating system with BlackBerry 6 and spits out a practically identical handset. It isn’t a new move from BlackBerry, we’ve seen them release multiple devices with minor hardware differences in the past – remember the BB Curve 83xx series?

Here too the BlackBerry Bold 9780 looks every bit the same as the 9700. The colours have perhaps been changed, our current Bold 9700 has chrome trim running across the bottom of the keypad, up the sides and across the top, whereas our 9780 is all black, so it looks like a stealth Bold. Of course, we can’t claim to have seen all the colourways of the 9700, so even this might not be new. Continue reading


iPhone officially leaps BlackBerry for no. 2 in smartphones

Apple’s 14.1 million iPhones were enough for it to comfortably jump over the BlackBerry for market share, Strategy Analytics found today. With an estimated 77.1 million smartphones moved in the summer, the iPhone leapt to 18.3 percent of the market, pushing RIM’s 12.1 million down to 16.1 percent. Nokia’s 26.5 million kept it out front but also gave it one of the biggest share drops of recent memory, sagging from 37.8 percent to 34.4 percent.

Smartphone Forensics: Cracking BlackBerry Backup Passwords

BlackBerry dominates the North American smartphone market, enjoying almost 40 per cent market share. A 20 per cent worldwide market share isn’t exactly a bad thing, too. The total subscriber base for the BlackBerry platform is more than 50 million users.

Today, we are proud to present world’s first tool to facilitate forensic analysis of BlackBerry devices by enabling access to protected data stored on users’ BlackBerries.

One of the reasons of BlackBerry high popularity is its ultimate security. It was the only commercial mobile communication device that was ever allowed to a US president: Barack Obama has won the privilege to keep his prized BlackBerry despite resistance from NSA. (On a similar note, Russian president Dmitry Medvedev was handed an iPhone 4 a day before its official release by no one but Steve Jobs himself. No worries, we crack those, too). Continue reading

Tablet Wars: How the BlackBerry PlayBook Measures Up Read More

When Research in Motion introduced its PlayBook tablet Monday, it was diving into a market already dominated by Apple’s iPad.

But there’s other competition too, either already on the market or soon to be: The 5-inch Dell Streak is available now, and Samsung’s 7-inch Galaxy Tab isn’t.

Since the iPad started shipping in April, Apple has sold more than 3 million devices. In June, Dell introduced the Streak, a device billed as a tablet but priced like a phone. Samsung hopes to bring its tablet, the Galaxy Tab to market in time for holiday-season shopping. Continue reading

Is this the BlackBerry Storm 3?

Love it or hate it, RIM is gonna keep pushin’ the BlackBerry Storm line until they get it right. The original Storm was followed by the Storm 2, which will inevitably be followed by the Storm 3 — which, as it just so happens, has seemingly just made its debut in a good ol’ fashion spy shot.
