$1.7 million of BlackBerry Playbooks stolen

We all know that the BlackBerry Playbook is not at the top of most people’s Christmas lists, but is it really that lame duck of a tablet?

Still, there are certain quarters of humanity who think that the Playbook is worth […]

T-Mobile BlackBerry Bold 9900 confirmed

T-Mobile has confirmed that they will be offering the BlackBerry Bold 9900 that will run on the latest BlackBerry 7 OS version, hitting stores at the end of August. We are left scratching our heads as to why the BlackBerry Bold 9900 costs significantly more compared to AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon, as it will set you back by three Benjamins – and this after a $50 rebate. It must be […]

BlackBerry Monza appears in Dubai, selling for $1,500

Well well, we would not have expected anything less than for the yet unreleased BlackBerry Monza (also known as the Storm 3 or BlackBerry Touch as listed online) to appear in Dubai’s Craigslist option – and as you know, that oil-rich state has plenty of folks who probably use dollars for toilet paper and literally burn money to light up a cigar, so to fork out $1,500 for an unreleased […]
