The BlackBerry Z3: The budget conscious treat for BlackBerry fans all around

The BlackBerry Z3 was announced in February at MWC 2014 and released a couple of months later. The device was specifically released in Indonesia first, followed by a number of countries later on, all within the Asian continent. For the past week, I’ve had the privilege to use and review the BlackBerry Z3. In this review, I will discuss and evaluate the product’s pros and cons for BlackBerry’s first, true budget friendly BlackBerry 10 device.

Review: BlackBerry Q10 Commuter Series Case by OtterBox

The BlackBerry Q10 Commuter Series case is what we got right here, this series has always been my favorite from OtterBox as it offers full protection without that bulk that the Defender Series gives you. The Commuter Series case for BlackBerry Q10 is the stylish protective option from OtterBox for your highly connected and always-on lifestyle. The outer plastic layer is highly protective and keeps the device safe from drops and bumps and slides easily in and out of your pocket, the inner rubber layer offers added support from shock and the self-adhering screen protector guards your screen from scratches and smudges. All together, this slim and sleek — yet highly protective — case is a great protective solution for this incredible device.

Review: Incipio DualPro Case For The BlackBerry Z10

For the last week, I have been sporting this sharp looking case from Incipio, the DualPro in neon yellow and gray. I have to say that this little case has caused a bit of a stir among my family and friends! Considering I have 7 BlackBerry Z10 cases (to date) I am going into this review with a lot of knowledge about what I like and don’t like, need and don’t need, in a case. So, let’s get started.

Initial Review of Leaked BlackBerry Z10 OS

Yesterday a new BlackBerry Z10 OS leak was introduced to the masses OS Having done hybrid and leaked OS builds since my first BlackBerry (the Storm), I have jumped at every chance to try a new build, and this was no different. My device is on the Verizon network, and as such I had already loaded the on prior to this leak, so I knew through some trial and error already how to load this leak. Give yourself about 2 hours to do this, and I think you will find that after the OS settles, it truly is a solid build. I will not go into the process of downloading the OS here as there are plenty of resources out there to help you with that. However, I am going to give you my initial feedback on the OS and in my opinion, what I find to be the best and maybe even worst (gasp!) of the build.

Review: BlackBerry LS-1 Battery Charger Bundle – The second most important acccesory

Friday started out well when a small package was dropped off in my mailbox.  Inside, the padded envelope contained a small BlackBerry branded box, was the BlackBerry LS-1 Battery Charging Bundle. You can see from the picture next to the Z10 how small the box is.  When you open it inside you find two smaller packages, one is the extra battery and the other a small plastic case with a clear plastic cover door, and a one sheet manual.

Review: BlackBerry Premium In-Vehicle Charger – MicroUSB Car Charger

While ordering parts and mods for my project car (Mitsu 3000GT) and reading up on BlackBerry news I managed to snag me a mobile car charger to go along with the car.  I could have went any route and ordered a cheap, low quality one off Amazon but coming across the BlackBerry Premium In-Vehicle charger I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed. A week later, this charger has been one of the best investments I’ve made and I’ll show you why. Hit the jump below and check out the review.

First 10 Hours With A BlackBerry Z10 Smartphone Device

Weeks before the launch, I reserved my Z10 with Rogers.  I logged into their website and made sure that I had Black version set aside.  I figured that I had nothing to worry about.  Well I was wrong.  February 5th, 2013 came along and by 9 AM I was texting my local rep to make sure he had my phone ready to go. His reply was not what I wanted to hear. Flashback to 6 days earlier.  The long anticipated launch where everything would be made clear.  Thorsten Heins, CEO of RIM (now BlackBerry) revealed the

Best Free Cloud Services That Sync Between the BlackBerry PlayBook, BlackBerry Smartphone, and PC

Emailing documents or pictures used to be the only option that people would have to share files, the negative part of this was that there was no simple way for a document to be updated, and users were at the mercy of size limits that could be emailed. The future of computing has moved towards cloud based services, which allows users to store files in a central cloud server, where these files are accessible anywhere by anyone that is permitted access.  Users can access these files, and collaborate with others on documents or projects on either a PC, Mac, tablet or phone. The BlackBerry PlayBook is an ideal device to take advantage of cloud based services, due to it’s high security features, (such as full device encryption with update to the OS 2.1) ease of use, portability, and rich native features such as Docs to Go.  BlackBerry Smartphones also have these features, so all files are easily edited safely and securely without the need to store these documents on the device. The one issue that users may find with the PlayBook or BlackBerry phone, is that several available apps only enable sharing of files to work on one or two devices, such as PC to phone, PC to PlayBook or PlayBook to Phone via BlackBerry Bridge.  This also does not allow for collaboration, as those files are still accessible only on the devices hard drives.
