Do BlackBerry Batteries Really Suck This Much?

| Comments

I am not really a big fan of RIM or BlackBerry, but unfortunately have to own several BlackBerry devices to test Ambiance with. Today I heard a “pop” coming from the far edge of my desk (as far away from me as I can put the BB’s). The back of my Storm 2 device had unsnapped itself. What could cause this to happen by itself?

Yup, really. Both Storm batteries have swelled. RIM sucks.

My name is Matt Coneybeare, I design and develop for iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch), Mac OS X and the Web out of New York. In 2008 I started a software company called Urban Apps that has made some pretty popular apps such as Ambiance and Hourly News. My current Stack Overflow reputation is about 27k.

I was a Rockstar a decade ago, but then went back to school and collected a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley. Now I am settled down with my beautiful wife Di and our two doggies Hamachi and Foxy. While coding, I walk several miles/day on my Treadmill Desk. When not at my desk, I love exploring New York City as a Yelp Elite, or training for marathons.
