Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on October 8th, 2009

BlackBerry Bold 2 coming October 21stTime to mark an X on that calendar, right over October 21. The BlackBerry Bold 2, otherwise called Onyx will be arriving via T-Mobile and AT&T on that very special day.

We don’t have any info on pricing details yet, but folks who want to upgrade from older BlackBerries might want to start that ebay listing to get rid of the old one for some quick cash.

BlackBerry Bold in whiteYou knew it had to happen eventually. RIM has just outed the new BlackBerry Bold in white, with a white leather back. It will arrive on AT&T for $200 on October 18th. We aren’t sure why they would re-color the Bold with the Bold 2 apparently coming soon, but they have some sort of strategy it seems.

It will be here just in time for a white Christmas. It’s also the perfect BB for a white wedding. It’s up to you to decide if its tacky or cool in white. We are undecided.

BlackBerry 9700 Onyx spottedIn case you were curious as to what the 3G capable BlackBerry 9700 looks like on a hardwood floor, here ya go. The device is rumored to have a November 11 launch date on T-Mobile, but that’s unconfirmed.

That’s about all we have right now. When we last checked in with this guy, it was before it’s heady days posing on hardwood and pouting at the photographer. Some of the rumored specs include: a new Trackpad, Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, UMTS/HSDPA, 480×360 resolution screen, OS 5.0, QWERTY keyboard, 3.2 megapixel AF camera and Bluetooth.

RIM working on a touchscreen QWERTY slider hybridWord on the street is that RIM is working on a new BlackBerry. One that will feature not just a touchscreen display, but also a slide out QWERTY keyboard. Such a device would definitely give users the best of both worlds and it adds flexibility.

The touchscreen would offer ease of use, while a QWERTY keyboard makes composing emails and text messages a breeze. At the moment this is just a rumor, but it wouldn’t surprise us at all.

Verizon BOGO Blackberry promotion is backIf you are considering picking up a BlackBerry, why not get two while you are at it? Verizon is kicking off their “Buy One, Get One” promotion. Apparently the deal covers not only a second BlackBerry but a netbook, PC card, USB modem or MiFi.

As is usually the case, you’re getting the cheapest item free and it’s rebate-based, so you will have to pay for both devices and then wait with baited breath for your check to arrive in the mail. Apparently the promotion starts today and runs through until October 10th.

RIM launching front facing camera on Blackberries next year

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on August 1st, 2009

RIM launching front facing camera on Blackberries next yearThis remains a rumor until we get something more concrete, but in an informal interview, a RIM executive strongly hinted that the BlackBerry line will be getting a front-facing camera for videoconferencing in early 2010. And they aren’t worried about the iPhone.

The mystery exec said, ““video conferencing is something that could completely change the mobile landscape and it is something we have been thinking about and working on for quite some time. You will start seeing something early next year”. It makes perfect sense, so we have no reason to doubt it. Are you looking forward to some videoconferencing?

Zeemote announces JS1 Bluetooth gaming controller for BlackBerryZeemote has announced a version of their Bluetooth gaming controller for BlackBerry smartphones. The Zeemote JS1 is compatible with all BlackBerrys that have a trackball, and connects wirelessly for over fifty hours of battery-powered gameplay.

You get four action buttons and a thumbstick and it isn’t just for games. It can also be used to navigate the BlackBerry’s menus. That should help you BB users get your game on. It runs on two AAA batteries. The Zeemote JS1 for BlackBerry will be available this summer, in a bundle that includes a free Gameloft title.

BlackBerry Desktop Manager coming to Mac

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on July 20th, 2009

BlackBerry Desktop Manager coming to MacMany of you Mac users have been waiting for this news. RIM has been known for ignoring Mac support for its devices, but apparently no more. We’re talking a full-fledged Desktop Manager that supports Mac OS 10.5.5 and above.

We’re not yet sure when it launches. All we know is that it will be sometime in September. The bottom line here is that you will be able to do stuff like sync iTunes, add and remove apps, perform firmware updates, create backups and restore from them, and manage multiple BlackBerrys at the same time. That’s pretty big.

BlackBerry OS 5.0 to get tabbed browsing

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on July 16th, 2009

BlackBerry OS 5.0 to get tabbed browsingLife got much easier with the advent of tabbed browsing for desktop browsers. It’s something we take for granted, but how great is it that we don’t have to open up a bunch of windows on our computers? It would be great if you could do this on your BlackBerry.

Well, RIM is all set to introduce a similar feature in their upcoming operating system, the BlackBerry OS 5.0. In fact RIM has been working on getting tabbed browsing right since around 2007, so let’s hope they’ve finally nailed it. We’re hoping that it doesn’t affect BlackBerry speeds very much.

BlackBerry to offer wireless music downloads

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

BlackBerry to offer wireless music downloadsAccording to the Telegraph, music download site 7Digital will be launching a service for BlackBerry this September. It’s based around an application that will be available in BlackBerry’s App World. Customers will be able to download music directly to their phone for 79 cents a song. “Most” tracks will be DRM-free.

RIM CEO Jim Balsillie sure seems excited about it. He sees the market as experiencing the “birth of digital music 2.0.” We don’t know about that, but it sure is exciting for BB owners.

Verizon and Sprint to add WiFi to Blackberries

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on July 10th, 2009

Sprint requiring WiFi on future smartphonesA common complaint about the BB Tour is that it doesn’t have Wi-Fi. Well, Sprint Nextel has revealed that it plans to add Wi-Fi to the BlackBerry Tour starting in 2010, and will begin to require that all its future smartphones come with Wi-Fi. Sprint didn’t say exactly when this requirement will be reflected across its entire line-up of devices, but Wi-Fi is definitely coming.

Verizon Wireless also admitted that it will begin adding Wi-Fi to its BlackBerry line-up in the future, but it didn’t give a timeframe. As you know Wi-Fi is absent on devices such as the current 9630 Tour and 9530 Storm.
