RIM launches official BlackBerry blogs for users, developers

Two new blogs will keep users and developers up to date on BlackBerry news and information

Always looking for new sources of information on everything-BlackBerry? Yeah, me too. And today I've got some good news. BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion (RIM) has launched two official blogs for BlackBerry enthusiasts: Inside BlackBerry, "The Official BlackBerry Blog" for the general BlackBerry Community; and the BlackBerry Developer's Blog, which is specifically aimed at BlackBerry software developers.

Inside BlackBerry isn't exactly "brand new"--it first launched last spring. But it does seem to be getting a bit more attention from Waterloo nowadays. Visitors can expect to find everything from BlackBerry how-tos and tips and tricks to RIM event coverage on Inside BlackBerry. And it's staffed by a "team of smartphone experts, each focused on a particular feature," according to the blog.

The BlackBerry Developer's Blog is brand new, and it'll be maintained by RIM's Director of Developer Relations Mike Kirkup and his team. The blog's first entry just went up yesterday and today Kirkup's already posted another great tutorial on ways to embed media within applications.

You'll still want to keep my BlackBerry Bible bookmarked, but there are certainly worse places to pick up BlackBerry-related news and information than RIM's official blogs.

Oh yeah, shout out to my man Douglas Soltys, aka The Douglas, aka @tron, who was recently tasked with making sure the Inside BlackBerry folks keep the blog interesting.

Visit both Inside BlackBerry and the BlackBerry Developer's Blog for more information.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
