Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on September 21st, 2010

We’ve been hearing rumors of a BlackBerry tablet for some time now. We know it’s coming. The company has even registered the domain www.blackpad.com.

Now the rumor is that the BlackPad will be announced in late November and should be arriving late in the holiday season. The pricing is said to be $499 which puts it in the ballpark with Apple’s low-end iPad. But can a Blackberry tablet compete with the iPad? RIMs phones haven’t fared so well lately.

Microsoft Employees hold iPhone and Blackberry funerals

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on September 12th, 2010

Last Friday Microsoft employees got out of their cubicles at the Redmond campus to attend a funeral parade that resembles some kind of geek Mardi Gras. There were apparently plenty of crazy outfits, like zombies, Darth Vader and even some Village People impersonations. They were there to lament the BlackBerry and iPhone’s demise.

It looks like it was a sad affair as iPhone and Blackberry mock-ups were carried coffin style to the grave. Obviously Microsoft wanted to make a statement about the upcoming Windows Phone 7.

Posted in Chargers by Conner Flynn on September 5th, 2010

We love anything that helps us get rid of wires around here. So we are excited about Energizer’s new inductive charger that is Qi enabled. Qi is the wireless charging standard developed by the Wireless Power Consortium, and should eventually make its way into more and more devices.

The charger will work with the iPhone or the Blackberry Curve 8900. The battery door for the Blackberry and the sleeve case for the iPhone 3G/3GS are both sold separately. Luckily, this device has enough room to charge three devices at the same time, which is nice.

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on August 19th, 2010

Word on the tablet street is that RIM will be using an operating system developed by QNX Software Systems for its upcoming tablet, the BlackPad. This is interesting news because it means that RIM won’t be using its own BlackBerry 6 OS.

Last month RIM acquired the Internet rights to blackpad.com, according to the Whois database. We can’t wait to see how it all plays out with this OS. It’s an interesting move by the company.

Nielsen put out some interesting smartphone numbers today. There’s the usual market share numbers that put Google, RIM, and Apple at 27 percent, 33 percent, and 23 percent in sales to new smartphone subscribers. But more interesting are the numbers having to do with brand loyalty.
