Alltel launches BlackBerry Curve 8530

Posted in BlackBerry,Curve by Conner Flynn on January 21st, 2010

The BlackBerry Curve 8530 has officially launched on Rogers’ network, so if you’ve been waiting for or find yourself needing a new phone, go for it. The contract is shorter and the price is nicer. This version of the phone will cost you $499, but after a $360 online discount and $100 mail-in rebate, we’re talking only $39.99 with a qualifying plan.

It will give you bragging rights since all of your T-Mobile friends have only 2G on the 8520. Totally worth it. So will you be getting one? Or passing?

Touchscreen BlackBerry Bold-esque prototype caught on camera

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

Would you be interested in a BlackBerry Bold with a touchscreen? That doesn’t exist yet, but apparently RIM is toying with the idea. Some leaked pictures of a BlackBerry prototype have show off a Bold-esque device with…you guessed it, a touchscreen.

Word is that this design has been ditched for something better, though some of us would be happy with this one. So we have no idea when we can expect a touchscreen BlackBerry with a physical QWERTY keyboard, but it’s nice to know they are on it.

This one is a solid no nonsense device. without any pizazz. If you want some pizazz you can always paint it, dip it in gold or adorn it with some Swarovski crystals. Not that we condone any of that. Just sayin.

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on December 13th, 2009

BlackBerry App World launches in Australia and New ZealandBlackBerry users in Australia and New Zealand now have something to smile about. RIM has officially launched BlackBerry App World, (its very own version of the App Store) in Australia and New Zealand. This is important for obvious reasons. The most important aspect of any powerful phone these days are the apps.

Maybe this will get Blackberry sales up in the land down under while the iPhone goes on walkabout. You never know. Hey at least you’ve learned something new about that part of the world. Something that has nothing to do with Nicole Kidman hailing from there, Mad Max movies, kangaroos or vegemite.

inPulse Smartwatch for BlackBerry available for pre-order, shipping in February

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on October 26th, 2009

inPulse Smartwatch for BlackBerry available for pre-order, shipping in FebruaryThe first BlackBerry watch is almost here, and it turns out that RIM really did decide to outsource it’s production. The inPulse Smartwatch for BlackBerry is being produced by Allerta, and will use Bluetooth for incoming emails, text messages and other alerts from your handset to your wrist.

Some specs include a 1.3-inch OLED display, glass lens, full metal body, vibrating motor, microUSB port and a rechargeable battery that will last about four days of “normal use.” inPulse users will need to install a special BlackBerry application to pass along information, but you won’t be able to use your watch to actually send messages. It’s available for pre-order right now at $149, and they should start shipping in February.

First images of RIM’s BlackBerry watch

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on October 19th, 2009

First images of RIM's BlackBerry watchRemember that rumor about RIM working on a Bluetooth watch to accompany its phones? Well looky here. We may now have the first real renderings of the final product. It may be called the “inPulse” and it features an OLED display, real-time message preview, and probably caller ID.

Looks like the watch isn’t being developed by RIM. Instead, work has been farmed out to a company dedicated to the BlackBerry aftermarket. An official announcement is coming “soon.” Thing is, Bluetooth watches haven’t been great sellers, but maybe more compatibility with the Blackberry is the trick.

Buy one get one for the BlackBerry Storm2?

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on October 12th, 2009

Buy one get one for the BlackBerry Storm2?Someone over at BlackBerry Rocks posted a photo of a Verizon flyer that shows a buy one get one free offer. The flyer depicts a Tour, Curve, Pearl Flip and…the Storm2. There aren’t any real details included, but one can only assume that it could be a Storm2 launch promo.

Its the kind of deal that Verizon would offer with the launch of a new device. We may know more soon if some more images and promo material pop up. A BOGO offer for the Storm2 at launch would be pretty sweet.
