    PinStack Week in Review: Accessory/App Reviews, Product Updates & More!

    Advertisement



    The Storm has officially hit the US! I have never seen a campaign like the one RIM and Verizon have unleashed. Everytime I turn on the TV I see a new commercial. And now, enter stage left, the BlackBerry Curve 8900 ... a smaller version of the Bold, from what I understand. Specs for the device are scarce, but if all previous rumors are true, THIS will be the device that everyone will be purchasing!
