UPDATED 6:00AM CST (bambenek) - It appears Blackberry's network is back up.  The outage affected only those applications that needed to go through that network. Native IP was working fine, but seemed to be all providers.

Several readers have told us that their Blackberry PDAs have not been working for the past few hours.  I can attest that mine is dead too, the last email came in a bit over three hours ago.  There is a lot of chatter on Twitter and several of the support forums on the Blackberry website confirm that the outage is widespread.  More to follow as we learn about it.
