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

We all want to stand out in some way. And now T-Mobile can help as they have just officially announced that there will be some new color options for its BlackBerry devices this summer. The BlackBerry Curve 8520 is now available in T-Mobile retail stores and online in Fuchsia Red for $49.99 with a two-year contract.

While the BlackBerry Bold 9700 will be available in white starting May 26th, priced the same as the current 9700, which is $129.99 with a two-year contract.

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on May 17th, 2010

Sprint was so excited about the BlackBerry Bold 9650 that it just couldn’t wait and so it went on sale online today, a week before the scheduled May 23rd launch. No word on if any stores have the device yet.

It will run you $199 on a two-year contract. It’s no EVO 4G, but if you are a devoted BB user than go ahead and order this one up. Now is the time.

FCC approves BlackBerry Pearl 3G

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on May 10th, 2010

An FCC filing shows that RIM’s BlackBerry Pearl 3G has been approved and it will come in at least versions. One version has 14 keys while the other has an additional 6 keys.

Both will operate on WCDMA Bands II and V, which means they will play nice with Bell, Telus, Rogers and AT&T. Both models should arrive on the market in the next few weeks, since we know that RIM has already promised a May release window.

Verizon offering Push-to-Talk “Free for Life” on the BlackBerry Tour 9630

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on April 30th, 2010

Verizon’s Push-to-Talk service has been active for weeks now, and many Tour users haven’t added the service, so Verizon has sent out emails to Tour users letting them know they can get the service free for life. The email says that users just need to add the PTT software and service to their device before June 30th and they will get to keep it free for the life of the contract.

I guess PTT isn’t going over as well as they thought. If you’re a Verizon Tour user you should have an email in your inbox soon, but if not, go download the software and get going. It’s free.

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on April 26th, 2010

The Blackberry Pearl 3G is just two-inches wide, with a 3.3 ounce body, making it the smallest BlackBerry yet. And this one comes with 802.11n wireless support. Say what? You read that right. The device offers UMTS/HSDPA and Wi-Fi (b/g/n) support along with GPS, a 3.2MP camera, optical trackpad, microSD/SDHD memory card slot, and all the other good stuff that you are used to with your BB.

The Pearl 3G will be available in two models: The 9100 which has a 20-key condensed QWERTY keyboard and the 9105 which has a 14-key T9 phone keyboard.

Sprint gets BlackBerry Bold 9650: $200, ships May 23

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on April 26th, 2010

If you, like many of us, suspected that both Sprint and Verizon Wireless would pick up RIM’s BlackBerry Bold 9650, well, the former has already released a press release stating the fact. Starting on May 23rd, Sprint fans can pick up this smartphone for $199.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate and 2-year contract.

Apparently it will be available in “all Sprint sale channels,” with a 480 x 360 resolution display, BB OS 5, Wi-Fi module and 3.2 megapixel camera. We’re expecting Verizon’s announcement any time now.

T-Mobile getting White BlackBerry Bold 9700 on May 5th?

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on April 16th, 2010

There’s no official confirmation on this one yet, but a leaked screenshot would seem to indicate that T-Mobile subscribers will be able to pick up the elusive white version of the BlackBerry Bold 9700 on May 5th.

The color is albino, but the specifications are still the same. You only have to worry about whether you want it in white or black. Choose wisely.

BlackBerry 9700 in white definitely coming soon

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on April 1st, 2010

By now you probably find your Blackberry boring. Your relationship with your BB needs something to spice it up. Maybe couples therapy, maybe some time apart, or just maybe a color change. Without going the Colorware route of course.

The Thai version of RIM’s site has posted a picture of a white Bold 9700. It might be just the thing you and your Blackberry need to get closer once again and mend your relationship. It will definitely stand out.

BlackBerry 9900/9930 slider hitting Sprint?

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on March 14th, 2010

Some new info has leaked regarding the BlackBerry slider and according to the latest rumors, the device failed the early diagnostic testing 4 out of 5 times, which obviously isn’t good. If the rumor holds up, the BlackBerry slider may be headed for Sprint, since the device had a Sprint logo.

There is a GSM/HSPA version of the device and the models are called the BlackBerry 9900 and BlackBerry 9930. It looks like the HSPA version will support 850/1900MHz UMTS bands which would make it compatible with AT&T and Rogers’ 3G networks.

Full QWERTY Keyboard BlackBerry Pearl 9100?

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on March 4th, 2010

There’s no official confirmation on this just yet, so it resides in rumor territory at the moment, but check out this picture of a replacement keyboard for the BlackBerry Pearl 9100. If it’s real, then you may just get a full QWERTY keyboard on your 9100.

Last we heard, the 9100 would be using RIM’s SureType keyboard, but if this fits on the BlackBerry Pearl 9100, you might get a full QWERTY keyboard. Which would you want? I vote QWERTY.

BlueBerry gets upgraded with optical pad

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

We’ve seen the BlueBerry before. And when it came time for the real thing to make the transition from trackballs to optical pads, this clone just had to do the same. The end result is the BlueBerry 9500 you see here.

Specs include a TV tuner (with 9-inch retractable antenna), dual SIM support, and WiFi. The optical pad is even said to be “decent.” Are you interested in a Blueberry, outside of your muffins?

Kindle for BlackBerry e-reader app now available

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

Amazon is now adding BlackBerrys to the list of Kindle-compatible devices, while reminding us that it’s working on Mac and iPad versions of the software. The app is a free download for Americans and offers the same functionality as the PC and iPhone versions.

There’s also an in-app book store and you can create bookmarks and view annotations from other portable Kindle readers. Better go download it and get your reading on you digital bookworms.

BlackBerry Curve 8530 now available in Violet

Posted in BlackBerry,Curve by Conner Flynn on February 7th, 2010

Here’s yet another device available in a feminine color to attract the ladies. The Blackberry Curve 8530 Smoky Violet is the perfect gift for the woman in your life this Valentine’s day. She probably likes violet over pink anyway.

You can pick up the BlackBerry Curve 8530 Smoky Violet from Verizon Wireless for as little as 0.01$. If you don’t like Verizon, you can also get the Curve 8530 in a darker shade of Purple for 0.01$ from Sprint. Apparently purple is a big deal right now. Who knew?

RIM planning to announce new BlackBerry Bold with touchscreen and web-friendly OS?

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on February 4th, 2010

The BlackBerry Storm wasn’t so hot as the SurePresstouchscreen didn’t do very well. The Storm 2 seems to be doing a little better. But it looks like RIM has a new touchscreen device. The rumors are pointing to something along the lines of the Bold editions.

This one would have a full QWERTY keypad and incorporate a touch-sensitive landscape display. RIM also apparently intends to release a new web-friendly OS with this device. True or not, we will know soon.

Verizon brings slotRadio+ cards to BlackBerry

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on January 28th, 2010

This is interesting news. Verizon just announced that they will be offering slotRadio+ microSD memory cards (which already come preloaded with music) for most BlackBerrys. We’ve seen the cards before. They are not new. They were introduced by SanDisk last year and can hold 1,000 songs from various artists on the Billboard charts.

First you’ll need to download and install an application on your BlackBery that will let you connect to Verizon’s V CAST Music service, for it to work. Each of the cards will retail for $50 if you like the skip button enough to get one.
