BlackBerry StormIt’s nearly impossible to keep new products from being leaked today for most manufacturers. BlackBerry is no exception. For a week or more now reports and details of the BlackBerry Storm have been popping up online touting the next potential iPhone challenger.

Today BlackBerry made the Storm official and announced that the exclusive U.S. carrier will be Verizon and the UK carrier will be Vodafone. The handset is designed to run on Verizon’s 3G network in the States. The Storm forgoes the familiar QWERTY keyboard most BlackBerry devices use in favor of an iPhone-like touchscreen.

Peek handheld focuses on e-mail onlyLooking for a device that does email and only email? Well here’s a new handheld from Peek and it will only handle your e-mails.

Sure, you can scoff and say what the hell is that about, but it may just catch on. Think of the older generation, you know the ones who can handle email but can’t figure out iPhones and such. It’s only real hurdle is pricing, which will be $99.95 when it hits Target next month. Oh, and $19.95 per month to send unlimited e-mails over T-Mobile’s network. Ouch!

Verizon BlackBerry Curve 8330

Verizon Wireless has decided two of its more popular  BlackBerry smartphones are deserving of a new body color as college students get ready to return to school this fall. The cell phone company is unveiling pink versions of the BlackBerry Curve 8330 and BlackBerry Pearl 8130, priced at around $100 and $80, respectively.

Verizon had this to say about the features of these two phones: “The BlackBerry Curve 8330 is the smallest and lightest full-QWERTY BlackBerry smartphone, which makes the handset a natural fit for fashion-savvy students who need to manage their responsibilities at school, while staying connected to their family and friends. Additionally, students traveling off campus can take advantage of Verizon Wireless’ VZ Navigator(SM) service on their BlackBerry Curve to access maps, audible turn-by-turn navigation and information on more than 14 million points of interest.

Duracell powers your USB gadgets
Chances are you’ve been out with your phone and it runs out of juice. It’s annoying. We put men on the moon for God’s sake.(That was a long time ago) Well, Duracell wants to make sure you always have plenty of power in your USB gadgets. If your device uses mini USB to charge, Duracell’s new PowerSource Mini has you covered.

You can get it in two different versions. One is designed to power your iPod and the other is for Blackberry. Both have a mini USB connector. The PowerSource Mini stores power with an internal rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack. Apparently it has a second USB port that lets you charge another device at the same time. It ships with an AC adapter and DC charger that each have a USB port, and the PowerSource Mini. Never be powerless again.

Keyboarded iPhone headed our way?

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on July 1st, 2008

Keyboarded iPhone headed our way?Apparently there is a super secret prototype in the halls of Apple. A prototype of an iPhone with a slide-out keyboard. The idea would be to focus on the BlackBerry market, which is actually pretty smart. According to the Register:

And he has taken this beyond just chatting: actual prototypes – not just mockups – have been sent to senior executives at some operators. I’m not allowed to even hint which operators… but I can report that the keyboard has “issues” which are not yet resolved.

The war to decide who gets your money is on.

RIM gives the Blackberry Bold an official launch

Posted in BlackBerry by Darrin Olson on May 12th, 2008

Blackberry Bold from Research In MotionHere it is. RIM has finally taken the wraps off the Blackberry 9000 we’ve been hearing rumors about and officially launched the Blackberry Bold. Reportedly the latest smartphone from Research In Motion gets the “Bold” name from the exceptionally crisp and bright display that comes with it.

That display comes as a 480×320 pixel, 65,000 color VGA screen that according to Crave is better than anything else they have ever seen. The other most notable feature is the wireless connection options available on this guy. It’s a GSM 850/900/1800/1900 phone and has HSDPA/UMTS (850/1900/2100) support which has never before been available on a Blackberry, and apparently they’ve done it right without sacrificing battery life in the process. Let’s also not forget that the Blackberry Bold is also connected via Wi-Fi (a/b/g), Bluetooth 2.0 and GPS.

Blackberry Curve made it to Verizon

Posted in BlackBerry by Darrin Olson on May 6th, 2008

Blackberry Curve available at Verizon WirelessVerizon told us they would be getting the Blackberry Curve some time in May and they’ve come through on their promise. It’s now only a week into May and Verizon is already showing the Curve available on their site, priced at $219.99 with a two year contract and $100 online discount. This model doesn’t have the Wi-Fi or the pale gold color like we’ve seen at T-Mobile, but also comes a little bit cheaper.

Blackberry Kickstart launching on T-Mobile

Blackberry Kickstart launching on T-Mobile
Boy Genius has some more pics and specs for RIM’s first Blackberry clamshell, the Kickstart. It’s launching on T-Mobile, and now we find out that it’s actually better looking then it originally appeared.

It also will probably come in the full rainbow of colors. There’s another little detail about some sort of glow surrounding the screen. It’s definitely a consumer phone, with pretty average specs, and lacking 3G. It’s does have Wi-Fi, a 2MP cam, internal LCD is 320×240, external is 160×128, and it’s running the 4.6 OS. BGR’s thinking a September release date.

“Kickstart”: First BlackBerry clamshell phone
You’re looking at the BlackBerry clamshell, dubbed the Kickstart. The Boy Genius has shared a handful of photos of the device and I know you can’t stop starring. BGR insists this isn’t fake. The phone has a Pearl-type keyboard, trackball navigation, and seems to have both an internal and external LCD screen. Nothing on specs, carrier, release date and all that jazz, but according to BGR it’s due before year’s end. We’ll keep you updated.

Blip: free geo-social interaction for your BlackBerry

Posted in Mobile Phones by Shane McGlaun on March 26th, 2008

Blip for BlackBerryThose BlackBerry users out there that have real jobs and actually get out of the house every now and again, unlike me, may find Blip to be an interesting and useful application. Using Blip you and your friends, family and co-workers can show your location to other people in your group.

Blip is from BlackLine GPS and according to BlackLine Blip users have complete and total control over who can see their location information. No one the user hasn’t approved can see the info. I can see this as both a good and bad thing. I guess it would be cool to see where in your city or block your pals are. However, if your boss, otherwise known as “The Man”, puts this on your BlackBerry he can see where you are as well. Kind of kills that opportunity to grab a long lunch break when you are out of the office working.
