Rene Ritchie is joined by Mobile Nations chief media officer, and Crackberry.com founder, Kevin Michaluk to talk iPhone 5 in a world where, following the launch of BlackBerry 10 in two months, Apple will have the oldest platform in mobile. This is the iMore show.
Not content to merely put BlackBerry App World in the black by buying $500 clock apps, CrackBerry.com found and Mobile Nations chief-of-chiefs Kevin Michaluk has now turned his attention to Google Play... and bought a $200 vuvuzela app.
While we often complain about Apple's over-curation of the App Store, here's a cautionary tale about what happens when a $500 BlackBerry App World "app" meets a CrackBerry.com founder left alone in Vegas with adult supervision.
Over the last 5 weeks of the 3rd Annual Smartphone Round Robin, the editors of our sibling sites, Casey from AndroidCentral.com, Kevin from CrackBerry.com, Matt from NokiaExperts.com, Dieter from PreCentral.net, and Phil from WMExperts.com have all had their chance to review TiPb's flagship iPhone 3GS. And we've just had to sit here and take it, the good and the bad, the raves and the rants. Well, it's week 6 now, baby, and TiPb gets to retort!

But even TiPb couldn't ignore the Pre and it's former-iPod/iPhone team designed goodness. So tempting is the Pre, in face, that we suspect iPhone and BlackBerry loyalists alike might stray from the fold to at least try it out come launch day (whenever that is). So, the question becomes, what to call them roving polygadetists? What matches up with CrackBerry or the Jesus Phone?
We can just feelCrackBerry.com's Kevin preening over news: Biggest. Jump. Since. Mayer.
Yep, U2 has left the warm embrace of Apple (though Product Red iPods no doubt remain) for the harsh corporate sponsorship of RIM. Of course, they flirted briefly with Dell first, and Bono's Elevation Partners are huge backers of Palm -- though according to PreCentral.net they likely needed to spend their cash on far more serious things, like bringing the Pre to market...
