Blackberry (formerly known as Research In Motion/RIM) is in trouble. The phone company recently announced that it has formed a special committee to explore “strategic alternatives” for its itself.

Research In Motion or RIM has officially announced its first new BlackBerry 10 devices: the Z10 and the Q10. The Z10 is arguably the company’s first contemporary smartphone. It runs on the company’s new operating system BlackBerry 10 and the Wall Street Journal is reporting that the device will launch mid-March in the...

The Verge have been able to get a video of the new Q10 devices from the company now called Blackberry (formerly known as RIM). The new device looks a lot more promising to me than the Z10 simply because the keyboard is traditionally what the Blackberry is known for. They weren’t able to spend that much time with it but...

Porsche-Blackberry-Porsche-Design-P‘9981 The Verge has a great review of a somewhat ridiculous product that you just have to read. RIM and Porsche came together and created a custome version of the Blackberry Bold 9900. The phone is going to cost oh about $2000. Two Thousand dollars! Here are some photos of the new...
