BlackBerry Torch 9800 teardown photos

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

If you love your Blackberry, then it must really hurt to see teardown photos. Sometimes it takes a strong stomach. Let’s hope they were gentle. Even though BlackBerry’s Torch 9800 was just announced a little while ago, we already have the teardown.

Some folks just like to dissect gadgets and some folks like to watch. Nothing wrong with that. We don’t judge. The video below details the slider mechanism in action, which is rated for over 150,000 cycles.

The long-rumored and eagerly awaited BlackBerry Torch just went live on AT&T’s site, so you can now sign up for a notification about when you can buy it. Some features include a 5 megapixel camera with flash, full QWERTY slide, 802.11n support, and BlackBerry 6.

There’s also 4GB of storage onboard with a 4GB microSD card in the box, 512MB of ROM and RAM, a quadband 3G radio, a 3.2 inch 480 x 360 touchscreen display, optical trackpad down below, and a new Media Sync feature.

RIM launches BlackBerry 6 platform

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on August 3rd, 2010

It’s been teased since way back in April, but RIM has finally unveiled all the details on its BlackBerry 6 operating system. The software features a whole mess of updates, most notably new universal search functionality, social network aggregation, WiFi-powered media sync with your desktop music collection, and an all-new WebKit-based browser with support for HTML5.

RIM has also committed to bringing BlackBerry 6 as an upgrade to some of their recent models like the Bold 9700, Bold 9650, and Pearl 3G “subject to carrier certifications in the months ahead.”

Most BlackBerry users plan to defect to iPhone or Android

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on August 2nd, 2010

Nielsen put out some interesting smartphone numbers today. There’s the usual market share numbers that put Google, RIM, and Apple at 27 percent, 33 percent, and 23 percent in sales to new smartphone subscribers. But more interesting are the numbers having to do with brand loyalty.

Those numbers don’t look good for BlackBerry. Here’s how it breaks down. 89 percent of iPhone owners plan on getting another iPhone, while 71 percent of Android buyers plan to re-buy, but only 42 percent of BlackBerry owners plan to stick around.

BlackBerry 9780 packs OS 6 in Bold Form Factor

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on July 25th, 2010

BlackBerry’s OS 6 hasn’t launched officially, but here’s another phone from the line. This one is the 9780 and features 512 MB of memory with looks similar to the Bold 9700. It is able to run on OS 6.

Aside from that detail we can likely expect a 5-megapixel camera included with the device, which seems to be the new standard for BlackBerrys these days. The BlackBerry Atlas will likely be the 9780′s CDMA counterpart, and has a similar stat line.

BlackBerry Curve 9300 with T-Mobile logo

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on July 25th, 2010

Good news Blackberry fans. The BlackBerry Curve 9300 arrived at the FCC last week, but now we are getting a closer look at it. You may notice that very interesting T-Mobile logo at the bottom. This will likely not support an upgrade to BlackBerry OS 6 and we still don’t know when it will arrive in the US.

Looks like T-Mobile in the US and Rogers in Canada will carry this one to start. To refresh your memory, some specs include 256MB RAM, 256MB ROM, Wi-Fi, a 624MHz processor, a 320 x 240 resolution QVGA display, 2-megapixel camera with no flash and UMA support.

BlackBerry 6: Multimedia Experience

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on July 22nd, 2010

RIM has now shared some additional screenshots of the improved multimedia capabilities of BlackBerry OS 6, giving us a taste of what we can expect when the OS arrives. Users can get album art from iTunes and other locations if they sync with BlackBerry Media Sync, and you can navigate tracks with a carousel interface in landscape mode, just like Apple’s Cover Flow.

Multi-touch pinch-to-zoom will be available on touchscreen BlackBerry devices, and you can capture photos with the new onscreen controls. You can also sync photos and videos to and from your smartphones.

More details about the upcoming Blackberry Tablet

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on July 12th, 2010

You might remember that back in May we told you about the upcoming Blackberry tablet. Well, apparently now an analyst and managing director at Rodman & Renshaw speculates that this tablet will feature a 7-inch touchscreen display with a few cameras and a 1GHz processor from Marvell.

One possible chip might be the Marvell 1GHz Armada 610 processor, which is aimed at tablets, mobile Internet devices, and e-readers. The chip features full HD 1080p playback, 16-megapixel image captures, and advanced 3D graphics.

BlackBerry 6 teased in new video

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on July 12th, 2010

Rumors had previously said that the first batch of BlackBerry 6-powered devices could launch as early as last month, but obviously we don’t yet have them in hand. So why not enjoy the video below which shows off some new features?

RIM just published this official YouTube video on the BlackBerry 6 and it shows off features like aggregated social network integration, universal search and the all-new WebKit-based browser. The video shows 6 running only on full touchscreen phones, so it’s becoming more obvious that we will see this launch on the rumored 9800 or something very similar.

Screenshots of BlackBerry Shield surface

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on June 27th, 2010

Some screenshots of the upcoming BlackBerry Shield service have now surfaced. This service will function like Apple’s “Find My iPhone” feature for iPhones with MobileMe. Basically, BlackBerry Shield will allow users to track their lost or stolen phones using Google Maps.

It will also allow users to remotely wipe important information from the device using a web browser. Some other features include custom lost and found messages, remote password settings, and alarms to help you find the device when it’s in your immediate area.

BlackBerry Bold 9650 gets the ColorWare treatment

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on June 12th, 2010

You don’t want your new BlackBerry Bold 9650 to look like everyone else’s, so why not spice things up? As usual, the folks over at ColorWare are more than happy to help.

You can colorize the inner back, outer back, top, bottom, frame, and sides. For once, ColorWare won’t be selling these directly. So you will have to send it in if you want to get your fancy colors. It will cost you $150 bucks.

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

Recently some leaked pictures of the BlackBerry Curve 9300 showed up. The device is codenamed Kepler and now even more images of the device have surfaced. This one will be the replacement for the Curve 8500.

The details are still unconfirmed of course and even though this one is running BlackBerry OS 5, it is rumored that it will support BlackBerry OS 6 at some point. We’ll let you know more when we know more.

More BlackBerry 9800 slider pictures emerge

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on June 6th, 2010

This isn’t the first time that pictures of the upcoming BlackBerry 9800 slider have shown up, but so far they’ve been blurry. Now however, we have some pretty good looking images of the device, which give us a much better idea of the device.

Now you can clearly see the SIM card slot and memory card slots. The pics are good enough to give you an idea whether you want the BlackBerry 9800 slider when it’s released, or not.
