What to play on your Blackberry

Although Blackberry was for a long time considered a strictly business phone, its popularity has started to grow among users of all categories, including those interested in using their phone as a gaming device (among other things). For those of you playing on your Berry, here is my Top Three of games available for this phone. As all other tops, this is also subjective – so don’t hate me for not including your favorite game. Here it is.

3. Cut the Rope Experiments

The Cut the Rope series is among my favorite logic / skill games. I have first met Om Nom, the candy-munching monster on a friend’s Android phone, and I suddenly fell in love with it (well, not literally, of course). I was delighted to find out it was available for Blackberry as well – and I spent the next weekend hunting stars and cutting ropes.

Cut the Rope: Experiments (as well as its prequel, the equally fun Cut the Rope) is available at the BlackBerry World for $1.99. Worth every penny.

2. Pac-Man

An all time classic – and one of my favorite childhood video games – has found its way on my BlackBerry among the first ones. As a child, I spent countless hours – and countless quarters – comping dots around the playfield, trying to avoid the colored ghosts who in turn were out for my (blood?). I think I’m not the only one to consider Pac-Man one of the most entertaining arcade games in history.

The BlackBerry version of Pac-Man comes with an incredible variety of 256 levels, and provides its fans (yours truly included) with hours of fun to fit in their pockets. The game is available from BlackBerry World for $0.99.

1. Red Flush

You might find this one unusual, but it does not change my preferences: the game I play the most and with the most pleasure is one that I have to pay for playing. Actually not just one, but a whole series of games are included here: slot machines, card games, table games and such.

To play the best casino games directly on your Phone you don’t even need to install anything. This means it won’t occupy any of your storage space, and still offer you a bunch of great games to play and even the chance to win some cash in the process.

The package provided by Red Flush contains seven great titles to play with. For me, a huge fan of video slot machines, is the perfect game to play on a mobile phone.

As I said above, this top three list is completely subjective – it reflects my personal favorites. What are your favorite BlackBerry games? Leave a comment for us to find out…

Blackberry Messenger To Come To iPhone & Android!?

This is news that will shock Blackberry owners worldwide, but a new report today claims that the Candian smartphone-giant, RIM, is working on new plans to bring the popular Blackberry Messenger service to users of both Android and iOS devices!

According to a report by BGR; Research In Motion is looking at the recent success of copycat services such as PingChat and clearly feels that it should create a cross-platform instant messaging service.

“According to our sources, Research In Motion has not yet finalized details surrounding timing or pricing, but we have heard that the company might make the software free to all users. We are also told strategy is still being developed, however, RIM may end up charging users a one time free, or even a recurring free for access to BBM on third-party platforms.”

The real question is whether RIM will make as much money from charging users the service fee instead of selling the premium handheld device supporting BBM. After-all, if you ask any BlackBerry owner why they love their phone, it all points to BBM. And that means they’ll probably switch manufacturers if it’s available on other devices!

I’m a little skepticle about this whole idea of RIM allowing it’s competitors access to its unique selling point. Yes, this is a great idea – and yes i would move to an iPhone, but that would most likely be the end of RIM’s hardware development. Instead, if this happens, they will become a software developing company – which they’re not good at anyway!

More speculations from BGR suggest that and Android version of BBM may be released this year. With no specific time, this could lead to the new innovation being released in 9 months time! Personally, I can’t wait that long… But I guess BBM on an iPhone or on a slick Android device is worth the wait!

Blackberry Bold Touch 9900 Review!

With Apple overtaking Blackberry’s marketshare, it was about time for RIM to release the 9900 into the wild. This Blackberry Bold offers some new, vibrant technology and is one of the mind-captivating devices by RIM yet! The 1.2 GHz processor, OS7, high spec touch screen and 5MP camera with HD video recording is not all new to us; but surely an upgrade from the almost pointless 9780 predecessor.

[sc name=”ad”]

Design & Weight

Weighing in at only 130g, this QWERTY keyboard, touchscreen device is fairly light compared to its rivals; the Samsung Galaxy and Nokia E series. RIM have also followed in the steps of many others, and made the device thinner, giving a new sleek and sexy look.


Now finally, a serious upgrade. The Bold 9900 packs a whooping 8GB of internal storage, enough to store over 2500 MP3s! And if that still isn’t enough, the MicroSDHC slot is compatible with cards upto 32GB.

Physical Enhancements & Changes

Apart from the re brushing of the surface; expected remoulding of the shell, the only other obvious change is the location of the lock button. Instead of having both a play/pause button, the new Bold 9900 only features a single ‘lock’ button in the centre.


Being a touchscreen device it is essential to have enough ‘finger space’ to play with. Although it is not as big as the Torch; the 9900 boasts an impressive 2.8inch ‘retina’ screen.
