Sprint also launching BlackBerry Tour on July 12

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

BlackBerry Tour announced: $199.99 this summerNo exclusivity here. Sprint is keeping pace with Verizon in getting the BlackBerry Tour to the masses. They’ll launch RIM’s latest device on July 12 for $199.99 on contract after rebates. Not July 20th as we previously thought.

Mark your calendars, alert the wife that $200 will be missing from the checkbook and wait patiently my friends. It will soon be in your hot little hands. The date approaches.

According to them, the Tour will be available on July 20th. It might be a good idea to mark your calendars and save up your $199.99. We think the date seems right. They wouldn’t want to wit much longer to unleash this one.

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on June 4th, 2009

Verizon announces BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8230The BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8230 certainly took its time making an appearance on Verizon Wireless. It starts from the 19th of this month onward. Better late than never I guess. It will cost you $129.99 after a $70 mail-in rebate, with a 2-year contract.

As for specs, here’s a refresher: OS 4.6.0, 324MHz processor, external display, vertical QVGA internal display, SureType keypad, 2 megapixel camera with flash, GPS, etc. I don’t think it will generate very much excitement.

Posted in Curve by Conner Flynn on May 20th, 2009

BlackBerry Curve 8900 officially hitting AT&T in "early summer"Last we heard, the Curve 8900 was scheduled for a vague “early summer” release. Well, AT&T has just announced that the Curve 8900 will be available both online and in stores starting this Friday. That’s a whole lot less vague and just two days away.

If you are adding a line or are eligible for a fully discounted upgrade, you’ll need about $200 not including tax. To recap, some features include WiFi, GPS and a 480 x 360 resolution display and the joy of owning a BB.

Gmail pushed to select BlackBerrys

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on May 5th, 2009

Gmail pushed to select BlackBerrysOn the heels of RIM adding a push API, Google is enabling some BlackBerry users to get their Gmail and Google Calendar stuff on their handsets. Don’t jump for joy just yet. There are some shortcomings that limit its usefulness. Like the fact that users have to be connecting to BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances, and those instances have to be backed by Microsoft Exchange.

Also, only 250 users per Enterprise Server instance can get their mobile Gmail on, changes made to appointments on a handset cannot be pushed back to Google Calendar. Plus, searching for Gmail messages still requires a separate app. Updates and improvements are on the way, but until then this is what you get.

RIM CEO confirms a new Storm

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on May 4th, 2009

Blackberry StormI’m sure this comes as no surprise, but RIM CEO Jim Balsillie just told Reuters that the company is working on a successor to the BlackBerry Storm. He said that the company believes there is a large consumer segment for such a device and according to Jim Balsillie, the current Storm is a “huge success in terms of sales and adoption.”

We would agree on both counts. He also noted that “we have next-generation devices with [touch] and the whole roadmap.” Balsillie did not give any specific details, of course. And he didn’t say when such a product might hit the market.

Posted in Curve by Conner Flynn on May 4th, 2009

BlackBerry Curve 8520 gets reviewedIf you’ve been in suspense and can’t wait to find out more about that BlackBerry Curve 8520 with the optical trackball in place of the spinner, the folks over at CrackBerry have posted a pre-release review. Overall, it’s a pretty nice phone, and the optical trackball works well. The hardware is well put together and the OS runs smoothly.

Is it as cool as the Curve 8900? Not really. The design in general has been updated, but things like the screen, battery, and camera are from the Curve 8300. What gives? It is EDGE-only and may turn out to be a pay-as-you-go phone. We’ll see

BlackBerry Curve 8900 officially hitting AT&T in "early summer"Looks like the rumors were true. RIM’s BlackBerry Curve 8900 will be making its way from T-Mobile over to AT&T.

This one also includes free AT&T WiFi at over 20,000 hotspots (with an unlimited data plan) and a 3.2 megapixel camera. There’s also a microSD / SDHC slot for cards up to 16GB in size, and while AT&T’s not talking pricing yet, you can expect it sometime in “early summer.”

Pip-Berry 3000

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

Pip-Berry 3000The Blackberry does some things that Apple can’t. User defined homescreens. A clever modder skinned a Pip-Boy theme for the device, which is cool. Even cooler, it actually functions, where the iPod Touch mod is just for show.

If you have a BlackBerry and want this, you can pick it up over at Crackberry in green and blue. The creator, sadosdemetrios, would appreciate your donations. Who would have thought that Vault Boy would make it to so many other devices?

Blackberry StormLooks like your Storm 2 wishlist just got an item slashed off. SlashGear has a source that they are pretty confident in, who says that the successor to BlackBerry’s touchscreen smartphone will add WiFi support for faster web browsing.
