BlackBerry PlayBook should have 64GB model, large battery

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on October 18th, 2010

RIM’s Co-Chief Executive Officer Jim Balsillie has revealed a few more details about the upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. According to CrackBerry, the device will have a 5,300mAh, non-removable battery, which will help it deliver more life than competing products. The similarly-sized Galaxy Tab packs only a 4,000mAh battery and a claimed seven-plus hour battery life when watching movies.

The PlayBook should last longer, obviously and maybe it will even match or surpass Apple’s 10-hour rating for its larger iPad. RIM’s smartphones are already very efficient and known for their long operation on a single charge. We hope some of this efficiency rubs off on the PlayBook as well.

Otterbox Pink BlackBerry Cases

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on September 23rd, 2010

You can walk against cancer, run against cancer, crawl against cancer, or buy some pink gadgets. Personally, I can’t see that ever beating cancer, though it does put your money in some deep pockets to be mis-managed and pillaged. But if you are not as jaded as I, you might want to join the good fight and get yourself these pink OtterBox cases.

They support the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade and the 2010 Avon Walk for Breast Cancer by offering a limited edition, pink and white Commuter Series for the BlackBerry called “Strength” cases. The following BlackBerry’s will be supported: BlackBerry Curve 8500/9300 series, Pearl 3G and Bold 9700 series.

RIM BlackPad Tablet may be announced in November

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on September 21st, 2010

We’ve been hearing rumors of a BlackBerry tablet for some time now. We know it’s coming. The company has even registered the domain www.blackpad.com.

Now the rumor is that the BlackPad will be announced in late November and should be arriving late in the holiday season. The pricing is said to be $499 which puts it in the ballpark with Apple’s low-end iPad. But can a Blackberry tablet compete with the iPad? RIMs phones haven’t fared so well lately.

First BlackBerry Storm 3 picture leaked?

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on September 20th, 2010

No one is safe from leaks. The latest leak is regarding RIM’s BlackBerry Storm 3. This isn’t 100% confirmation that this is the new Storm, but it’s what we have and it’s close enough.

There are no other full touchscreen BlackBerrys in production right now, so unless RIM has managed to keep something secret (Yeah sure) the phone above should be the Storm 3. In any case, it’s an interesting looking BlackBerry and it has our attention.

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on September 5th, 2010

RIM’s BlackBerry Torch 9800 may not be all that we had hoped it would be, but that doesn’t matter to the folks at Colorware. They will color it up no matter what your feelings on the device are. And we have to admit, it looks pretty decent in the color scheme above.

It’s available to customize anyway you want for $250 or it will cost you $1,050 to buy new. You make the call.

BlackBerry BlackPad Tablet to run OS developed by QNX

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on August 19th, 2010

Word on the tablet street is that RIM will be using an operating system developed by QNX Software Systems for its upcoming tablet, the BlackPad. This is interesting news because it means that RIM won’t be using its own BlackBerry 6 OS.

Last month RIM acquired the Internet rights to blackpad.com, according to the Whois database. We can’t wait to see how it all plays out with this OS. It’s an interesting move by the company.

Colorware targets BlackBerry Pearl 3G

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on August 19th, 2010

Is your 3G-equipped BlackBerry looking boring? Do you think it needs some freshinging up? It might be time to give the folks at Colorware a call. They have just started taking orders for repainting the Pearl 3G (aka 9100) handsets into whatever colors you want.

As always, prices are ridiculous, starting at $165 to color your device. It will cost you $640 for a brand new phone from them. Of course you could always try painting it yourself, but that’s just going to end in tears isn’t it?

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on August 9th, 2010

The BlackBerry 9300 Curve 3G is finally official today. If you told T-Mobile to bring it, consider it brought. Though we still have no word on what it will cost. It’s basically an entry-level smartphone, so you can expect a reasonable price.

The 9300 Curve 3G will be able to support AT&T’s 3G bands, but there is still no word from AT&T on whether they will release the device or not. The BlackBerry 9300 Curve 3G is another BlackBerry device that runs on the recently introduced BlackBerry OS 6.0.

Verizon BlackBerry 9650 shown running OS 6

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on August 8th, 2010

If you have been losing sleep wondering whether the BlackBerry OS 6 will arrive on your Bold 9650, this should ease your worries. Verizon hasn’t officially confirmed it yet, but pictures of BlackBerry OS 6.0.0.80 running on the Verizon Bold 9650 have surfaced.

However, this leak also indicates that it’s running sluggishly, so hopefully the performance issue will be sorted out. Otherwise, what’s the point?
