    I have been doing some looking around and with out subscribing to email notifications to every tech website out there. Where do you all get your breaking news for blackberry related things.

    I am not trying to flood my inbox with email but I would like to be on the head line for breaking news to hit the wire about blackberry news.


    SO the question is where do you get your info from?

    Thanks in advance.

    Figure it this way, if RIM really wants to "leak" some news, who are they going to leak it to? If RIM wants a solid review on an upcoming device, whose hands would they put it in? I'm sure that some of these reviewers and rumor bloggers (BGR) have an inside source that is able to give small bits of info, pics, etc. We still don't know where Kevin got his 8900 from (cause it wasn't the $17,100 one!) Granted we know he bought that first Bold from eBay. but I would suspect that RIM would notice something like CB and want to use it to their advantage and thusly to ours as well. But considering I'm a recently-returned-to-college-to-get-a-masters-in-teaching student who works in a restaurant, I know very little about Waterloo itself.

    I have loaded the google mobile app on my 8330 and tried the google alert which is in beta, but what the hey....... I am using it to follow my football team, but who's to say you could not just set the alert for "blackberry". I am sure you would be flooded at times. I have gotten as many as 25 alerts in a day. I also follow CB, Engadget, Phonescoop, and Phone Arena

    Being a mod thats posts actively on the forums, I get a lot of people sending me PM's with breaking news. Also, just surfing other BB sites will help! Always looking to dig up dirt.

    At first I used to use a special e-mail I set up at mail.com for news e-mails ONYL. I set it up to "gong" twice on my BB so I knew when the news was coming in. But I ended up signing up for a few too many specialty news sources and as someone else mentioned it got really annoying really fast.

    Now I am in love with Viigo. It's not for everyone so try it out, I mean it IS free
