BlackBerry Tablet, Slider in the works

This week has been a strangely powerful one on the underground for BlackBerry, starting with Kim Kardashian and rolling out with word from BlackBerry CEO that they're working on concept oddities. This word comes from the MIT Enterprise Forum in Hong Kong during a Question and Answer session during the "Technologies That Matter Series." Remember that these are concept works, not necessarily things that will come to fruition with BlackBerry in the near future. And you've already got a BlackBerry PlayBook in your backpack now, right?

We didn’t expect Kim Kardashian to love BlackBerry so much

We didn’t expect Kim Kardashian to love BlackBerry so much

Of all the people who could be the savior of BlackBerry, Kim Kardashian probably wouldn't have been our first guess, but it turns out the reality TV star turned mobile app kingpin could end up single-handedly propping up the second hand market.

BlackBerry Classic gets detailed in spec and photos leak

With the BlackBerry Passport, the BlackBerry "Prestige" Porsche Design P'9983, and the new BlackBerry Blend software, most of the company's roadmap for the last quarter of 2014 have come to pass.

August Smart Lock heads to Apple Stores officially

August Smart Lock heads to Apple Stores officially

The team behind Apple’s exclusivity in all things has done an amazing job of making it feel like whatever they OK is golden. Take August Smart Lock for example - a keyless entry system for your home that opens your door with your smartphone. Without Apple being involved, this is just another "startup."
