Incipio Feather SHINE front

With all the cases currently available for the BlackBerry Q10, I can see how it is a tough choice to know which one to go for. There are those who prefer to leave their device bare, those who seek protection in a lightweight and stylish design, and those who like big and bulky for full blown protection. The Incipio Feather SHINE Hard shell case falls into the middle category as it is keeps your Q10 protected against the occasional drops and falls yet still offers a firm grip. It is available in two color options, yet I chose to take a look at the silver one, which certainly stands out from the rest.

Fanboys

I'll get straight to the point. I've been seeing a few too many comments and forum posts around here recently suggesting that we're not being big enough BLACKBERRY FANS with the articles we've been writing as of late. That maybe, we've lost some of the pure enthusiasm we once had.

Now, I personally disagree with this — a whole lot —but I'm one who likes to focus on solutions and not the problems. You're either growing or you're dying, right? And I always, always want to be giving our readers what they want. So with that, if you're reading this and are a HUGE BlackBerry fan and have the chops and desire to be a "blogger" around these parts, then I want to hear from you.

Mobile Nations Community Update, April 2014

It’s time for another edition of the Mobile Nations Community Update! As usual, things around Android Central, CrackBerry, iMore, Smartwatch Fans and Windows Phone Central have been busy.

The past month has been a mix of new devices, financial analysis, conference coverage, and site planning. The HTC One M8 has been announced, BlackBerry held their Q4 financial results conference call, Rene and iMore hit up (and did a fabulous job) covering Macworld|iWorld 2014, and Windows Phone Central is in the middle of Microsoft Build 2014 conference coverage as we speak.

You may have also noticed the unveiling of the Mobile Nations Newsroom, put together to provide you with a better experience. We’re excited about it, and hope you enjoy the benefits it will provide: in addition to enhanced news coverage, expect to see a lot more original content.

Let’s get down to it. I have some exciting ‘hints’ to share regarding future developments on Smartwatch Fans… keep reading to learn more!

Howdy all, it's time once again for the weekly App Roundup. Now I spent my time wisely this week rustling up some new, cool, and helpful applications for all you BlackBerry addicts to try. Be sure to check them out by clicking through the gallery below and remember you can help by offering your suggestions at the end.

It also allows you to add doodles, frames, textures, camera filters, stickers, and then share the final product with your friends and followers. With an easy to use interface and a small footprint you can grab this for legacy devices for $.99.

For you BBM Sticker fans out there you'll find a new pack in the BBM Shop today - this time featuring Shaun the Sheep. Now, I'm not sure how well known Shaun is globally, but if you've not come across him before he's the star or the British animated spin-off of Wallace and Gromit, which I'm sure is a little more popular.

We've only had BBM Stickers available for all, including iOS and Android, for a matter of days and we've already seen a couple of new sticker packs - first up was WWE which was free for a limited time and pretty sweet if you like that sort of thing.

We posted recently that the BBM Team were looking for Sticker pack ideas and it looks like the wheels are already in motion.

Back on October 2013 we featured a video review of Ablative Air for all-touch BlackBerry 10 devices. I just happened to notice that the game has lost its $1.99 price tag, although I'm sure this is only temporary, but if you liked what you saw but were put of by the price, now's the perfect time to give the game a go.

Z3 BlackBerry World

Mercedes

If you hadn't noticed, we're fans of the BlackBerry sponsored Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team in these parts. Looks like we're not the only ones, too, as the team has delivered a special 'thank you' message to 100,000 subscribers to its BBM Channel.

The Channel's remarkable growth has seen a 150% increase in just 2014 alone – it sure doesn't hurt starting the new season with back-to-back wins! That and BBM Channels finally went cross-platform, so even Android and iOS toting fans can join in the fun.

It's great news to hear, and while we're sure most of you are already subscribed, you can do so using the QR code or PIN below if you're not!

Buying BBM Stickers

Ok, I take back ALL the mean things I said about BBM stickers. I kinda, actually, LOVE THEM! Honestly, BlackBerry was smart to give away the WWE BBM stickers free of charge for a limited time. I pretty much reply to every BBM I receive now with The Ultimate Warrior.

Beyond the freebie sticker packs, I've also been purchasing the other for sale ones, like Bubble Bot and Cos Cat (don't judge me - the little sheep holding the BlackBerry is just so damn cute).

Sprint is getting a little “uncarrier” themselves with a new promotion that offers to pay your early termination fees if you’re willing to switch to them. You can get up to $350 for every line terminated when making the switch; just snap a picture of your last bill, send it to Sprint, and they’ll send you a Visa card with the cash on it. There are a few terms and conditions here and there, but you can read all of that at Sprint’s site starting tomorrow. The promotion will run from April 4 until May 8.
