Hello again to all you BlackBerry Empire faithful. It has been a few weeks since my last product review on a BlackBerry 10 accessory and if you rememeber that was on the Power Jacket from Brando Workshop. Well I guess Brando Workshop was paying attention to that review because they have just come out with a new and improved version of the Power Jacket that I want to share with all of you. This review will be on the Power Jacket with cover for the BlackBerry Q10 – 2800 mAh from Brando Workshop.

Review: Power Jacket For BlackBerry Q10 – 2800mAh From Brando Workshop

All of you that read the BlackBerry Empire blog often may have seen a few of the reviews that I have shared on BlackBerry Z10 accessories. You may have also noticed that I haven’t really reviewed many Q10 accessories as of yet. I think part of the reason why is because the Q10 just feels so solid in my hand that I haven’t felt the need to put a case on it. Well today I want to give you a quick review on a new item that I just received from Brando Workshop called a 2800 mAh Power Jacket for the BlackBerry Q10.

Review: MPERO Privacy Screen for BlackBerry Q10

If you are looking to get a big bang for your buck (literally) then the BlackBerry MPERO Q10 Privacy Screen from Empire is something you definitely want to purchase for your device. I had the chance to review other privacy screens for the Q10, one being from OtterBox that is priced at $24.95 and is not nearly as effective as the privacy screen you are about to see from MPERO, coming in at a price tag of only $2.29.

Why I Chose the BlackBerry Q10 Over My Beloved Z10

As many of you are probably aware I have been sporting around the BlackBerry Z10 since April 29th when Verizon released their pre-orders. The BlackBerry I had before was the 9930 and honestly I wasn’t sure if I could get use to not having the physical keyboard but I decided to give it a try anyhow. Well needless to say I have had no issues (no reboots, no dropped calls, nothing) with the Z10 but in the back of my mind I was missing that great BlackBerry keyboard that I have become use to over the years. Well as of June 13th I now also have the BlackBerry Q10 and I want to give you my thoughts and comparison on a few things.

Review: Power Jacket For The BlackBerry Z10 From Brando Workshop

Over the last few weeks I have reviewed a few cases from Brando Workshop and so far they all have been perfect on my BlackBerry Z10. So now that my device is protected from anything that I might do to it from being careless I decided to check into a way to extend the battery life throughout the day. To find what I needed I again went to Brando Workshop and I found a couple external battery chargers that I want to tell you about.

REVIEW: Incipio’s [OVRMLD] with Holster for BlackBerry Z10

  Happy Saturday Readers, I’m back to give you yet another Incipio Review. This time I bring you the Incipio BlackBerry Z-10 Headliner [OVRMLD] with Holster case. The case features two materials co-molded for durable protection and the hybrid design keeps the case slim yet well protected. This is one of Incipio’s high-end cases, but in my opinion the best I have been able to test out. I usually allow a week with a case to be able get the best information on it for our readers, but ill share a secret with you. I have had this case on for over a week and it is still the case of my choice from Incipio’s line up. Continue reading to see why.

Yelp for BlackBerry – Overhauled and Updated to v2.0!

Me, I love Yelp. I was very disappointed with their app, however. So it was to my surprise that upon checking my phone (after a restart) I had an update available for the Yelp app. I took a quick look at the release notes and started the update immediately. Now I can draft reviews on the go, store images of places I am reviewing, and even check-in to places my friends are at. This is a HUGE improvement, and I hope there are more updates to come! Hop on to BlackBerry App World and check out if your update is available for you. Look for a review of these new features coming soon…
