BlackBerry has announced that it no longer has any plans to continue manufacturing its own smartphone devices. The Canadian phone maker made its announcement after disclosing that during the third quarter of this year, it had posted a net quarterly loss amounting to $372 million. BlackBerry will still be active in the smartphone business and is looking to put all of its attention on developing software projects as well as licensing, but when it comes to building its own hardware, those days may be over for the company.
You aren't able to see it while you're composing a new message, but you know it's there. It's that pesky BlackBerry auto signature that appends itself to all your outgoing emails. While it may have its benefits (letting recipients know the message was sent from your BlackBerry so that they will perhaps be slightly more forgiving of your many typos), you may prefer something slightly more personalized. Luckily, changing the signature on your BlackBerry is a fairly quick and easy process.
Corporate BlackBerry users whose organization's employ BlackBerry Enterprise Server can manage their auto signature from BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
The Blackberry 8520, codenamed "Gemini," is the latest addition to the popular Curve family. The Curve 8520 is intended as a well equipped, but entry-level device that comes in at a slight step below the Curve 8900. In more ways than not, the 8520 is effectively the 8900 trapped in a different body.
In a move that seems a long time in coming, Sprint has taken the plunge and announced that it will require its original equipment manufacturers to include WiFi in all smartphone devices moving forward.
For the better part of a year-and-a-half, the BlackBerry Curve has ruled RIM’s roost. The incredibly popular device swept across all carriers, and, even now, is still ranked among the “best” cell phones by wireless aficionados across the Internet. It also happens to be one of Wirefly’s best-selling cell phones.
But, this fall, BlackBerry is poised to unleash two new devices – the BlackBerry Bold, and the BlackBerry Storm. While the Storm is still a week or two away from hitting shelves, the Bold is currently available at Wirefly, and we’ve had some time to play with this particular phone.
It’s a beautiful, eye-catching device that takes a significant step into the high-speed data world, and will certainly please any Curve enthusiast looking to upgrade.
