WATERLOO, ONTARIO — BlackBerry Limited (BBRY)(BB.TO) today announced it has signed a letter of intent agreement (“LOI”) under which a consortium to be led by Fairfax Financial Holdings Limited (“Fairfax”) has offered to acquire the company subject to due diligence.

The letter of intent contemplates a transaction in which BlackBerry shareholders would receive U.S. $9 in cash for each share of BlackBerry share they hold, in a transaction valued at approximately U.S. $4.7 billion. The consortium would acquire for cash all of the outstanding shares of BlackBerry not held by Fairfax. Fairfax, which owns approximately 10 percent of BlackBerry’s common shares, intends to contribute the shares of BlackBerry it currently holds into the transaction.

Just as we were teased of Skype launching for BlackBerry 10 in the past, Flipboard has taken the same approach here as well.  Their promotion is displayed in BlackBerry World letting folks know that their application is coming officially to select 10.2 devices.  With that said, we hope it is indeed a native application that is on its way.  Currently many users have sideloaded Android builds of Flipboard on their BlackBerry 10 devices, included myself.  It is a very smooth app to use for an Android sideload, but native is always a good way to go.  Any way, keep on the lookout for the official Flipboard application coming soon to BlackBerry World.

sims_freeplay_startup It seems that many Sims “applications” have surfaced in BlackBerry World, however they are nothing close to the game and are more or so RSS feeds about The Sims, or tips/tricks applications.  That shenanigans is finally over as Electronic Arts has officially release The Sims Freeplay for BlackBerry 10, specifically the Z10 now.  It is free to download and brings you amazing graphics on your Z10.  Features include:

 

  • Let your Sims get married and make babies, then watch them grow into toddlers and pre-teens 
  • Care for pets, grow gardens, even bake a cake 
  • Give your Sims careers and earn Simoleons to improve their situations 
  • Complete goals for Lifestyle Points, then spend them on hip items 
  • Live with your Sims in real-time (when it’s day or night for you, it’s the same for your Sims)

It was rumored that another Porsche Design device would surface for BlackBerry 10.  We previously saw the back cover which was suggested to be Porsche, but there was no confirmation until today.  Here we see some nice photos posted by Tinhte, showing off the device at all angles.  We notice that it has the same LS-1 battery as the Z10, and probably holds up to the same specs as well.  Remember, the original Porsche Design BlackBerry was based on the 9900 hardware, so this one joins the Z10.  Although i would love to see Porsche go at it for a Q10 equivalent device – maybe down the road? Any way, hit the jump below for more pictures of the very attractive Porsche Design BlackBerry 10 device.

This game was a pretty cool one which struck my attention. Only because it looks to be a nice mix up between Brick Breaker and Asteroids. The goal is to destroy all Asteroids trying to come on Earth with the paddle you are given as seen in the bottom of the screenshot. You can play against the CPU and other human players as well. Best part is, it qualifies at a Built for BlackBerry app, so purchase with confidence. Grab it at BlackBerry World for only 99 cents.

The rumored 5 inch BlackBerry 10 device has finally shown itself on camera. Although we can’t tell much by the picture, we do notice much rounder edges and the Z10 style bottom lip standing out quite a bit.  The expected resolution is 1280 x 720 and a Super AMOLED screen. Processor is to be dual core but still no telling it’s specific specs or speed. What do you make of this device? It is expected to release sometime in the fall so definitely expect to see more details and images as we get closer to the launch.

I remember as a kid growing up one of the hottest games out was NBA JAM, and I remember waiting in arcades to get my time to play. That was long ago and the world of video games have changed. I’ve remembered a lot of those games I use to play from time to time, and some of them I have wanted to make a comeback especially for mobile devices. Mobile gaming has really changed and improved even over the last couple of years. When I opened BlackBerry World a couple weekends ago I saw NBA Jam, I was very excited. I downloaded NBA Jam right away but I was a little concerned about game play, graphics, and how my Z10 would handle NBA JAM. Those thoughts quickly left after I started playing. Continue Reading
