Dialed In 136: RIM on the comeback trail? (podcast)

It's been a while since we've heard from RIM but the company's cooking up something for next week. We discuss what might be in store and also dish on the latest ruling about jailbreaking phones. All this and more on Dialed In.

The summer has been dominated by Android and Apple news, but RIM's not about to let them have all the fun. The BlackBerry maker is set to make an announcement at an event in New York next Tuesday that might have a little something to do with all those BlackBerry OS 6 previews we've been seeing lately. We take a minute to discuss what the company might unveil. Also on this week's podcast, jailbreaking gets the A-OK from the U.S. Copyright Office and Nicole reviews a pretty cool beginner cell phone from Just5. Too bad it looks like a calculator. Awww.
