BlackBerry Protect release for all European, Middle Eastern, and African users


BlackBerry Protect v1.0 has launched in App World Test Center today (Saturday, March 19th) for all European, Middle Eastern, and African users.  Users in these regions can now download and install the released version of the BlackBerry Protect 1.0 client at or via App World.

I have been using BlackBerry Protect for quite some time now as a beta tester and in my opinion it is the most vital application you can have on your device.

As well as backing up all your contacts and calendars to the cloud BlackBerry Protect will allow you to find your BlackBerry if it is lost or stolen.

If you have a BlackBerry you have to download Project. Do it. Do it now.

Sarah Harding shows her dark side for HTC Incredible S

article-1362785-0D74F396000005DC-385_634x430 Despite always being the blonde bombshell of the group, it seem that Sarah Harding is using her newly darkened locks to attract some serious advertising revenue.

Despite only been raven-hared for two weeks, the Girls Aloud singer is fully embracing her darker side in a vampy new photo-shoot for HTC.

The all-black outfit and vampish make-up in a new ad campaign for the latest HTC Incredible S makes Miss Harding look every inch the smouldering brunette.

The 29-year-old looked slinky in black leather trousers and a pair of killer heels as she posed with the new matte-black HTC Incredible S mobile phone.

Graham Stapleton, Chief Commercial Officer for Best Buy Europe, said: ‘We are very excited to be working with Sarah and HTC to launch this great phone. The Incredible S is the latest in a series of cutting-edge mobiles from HTC and with its perfect combination of high-end style and advanced features is yet another example of why HTC is leading the way in pioneering technology.”

Harding posed for the shoot just two weeks after she debuted her new hair colour at London Fashion Week, where she attended the Vivienne Westwood show with super stylish band-mate Nicola Roberts.

Harding’s new look is said to be inspired by Natalie Portman’s Oscar-winning film Black Swan, which she has previously claimed to be obsessed with.

The HTC Incredible S smart phone has received the usual praise, commonly heaped on HTC, for its innovative appearance and features. The Incredible S has a large, 4-inch touch-screen and a ridged back that sets it apart visually from the similarly rectangular competition.

The innovative contoured, matte-black case gives the handset an attractive, industrial appearance.

At 4-inches, the phones screen is the same size as the popular Samsung Galaxy S, and sits between the HTC Desire HD and the new HTC Desire S handsets. In big screen sizes HTC now have something for everyone.

BlackBerry 9780 keyboard stutter

stutter I tweeted about this a few weeks ago and was surprised by the number of other 9780 owners that replied to me saying they had the same issue. I am of course talking about the apparent problem with the BlackBerry Bold 9780 where the keyboard keys periodically ‘stutter’.

On my 9780 this affects almost all of the keys on the keyboard. When typing I frequently end up with letters appearing more than once despite pressing the letter only once. This is particularly noticeable when there are double letters in a word and can then result in either 3 or 4 instead of two letters appearing.

A search on the web seems to reveal that this is a relatively common hardware issue that requires RIM to replace the phone. One suggestion is that it depends upon where the phone has been made as the 9780 is manufactured in more than one place. My 9780 was manufactured in Hungary. Does that fit with anyone else?

The image cap. above is an un-simulated example of the problem.
