Always looking for new sources of information on everything-BlackBerry? Yeah, me too. And today I’ve got some good news. BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion (RIM) has launched two official blogs for BlackBerry enthusiasts: Inside BlackBerry, “The Official BlackBerry Blog” for the general BlackBerry Community; and the BlackBerry Developer’s Blog, which is specifically aimed at BlackBerry software developers.
Inside BlackBerry isn’t exactly “brand new”–it first launched last spring. But it does seem to be getting a bit more attention from Waterloo nowadays. Visitors can expect to find everything from BlackBerry how-tos and tips and tricks to RIM event coverage on Inside BlackBerry. And it’s staffed by a “team of smartphone experts, each focused on a particular feature,” according to the blog.
