"BlueBerry" 9500 Now Available With Optical Trackpad

Anyone remember the BlueBerry? Back during intial release the BlueBerry was the device to have. Ok, maybe not. But, it sure did bring some laughs to our day. Seems the BlueBerry series is not going any where anytime soon. Seeing how they just released the BlueBerry 9500 with a slick new trackpad, dual SIM, WiFi and even Mobile TV with a built in antenna. From what we can tell, it's not running OS 5.0 or BlueBerry App World but rumor is BlueBerry is working on copying getting ready to roll it out next month but we all know how that works, delay after delay with the BlueBerry team.

This think looks like a cross between a BB and a Nokia e71x! Insane!

missginacandy

Same comment I was thinking. Looks funny and tv won't work US is digtal

BBThemes

the trackpad is from the E72

elvin1983

It looks like that and the keyboard are lifted right out of an e71, which would mean that it's not a trackpad at all, a directional pad and a select button...

ha, when i say this, I thought it was some kind of early April Fool's joke. So funny.

RIM's patent lawyers are already lining up.

izzyncade

you have to say this is almost poetic as RIM is getting sued for copy right infringements....

hoosercub

these chinese look-alikes are way too cheap and numerous..

theres a lot of blackberry-like products in this genre of phones.. most running WinMo. Theres one that looks like a 9530, except its tiny.

Sgt_Smoker

WOW, it's everything the 9700 should have been! I keep asking myself, when will RIM catch up? LOL

If you look at the lyrics of the Jay-Z and Linkin Park song Numb, here is what Jay-Z says, "Out the country but the blueberry still connect". Oh snaps!

cashmj6

You obviously are not a jay-z fan........

lbsigman

It doesn't matter if I am or not.

Valgi

The mob has spoken. Oh, snap.

ceepee

this dude think Jay's talking about a phone... clown!

lbsigman

If you're referring about me, I guess someone can't take a joke about the blueberry reference.

jorGeorge

I bet you that thing has a better browser than a real BlackBerry!

This is amusing. I gotta say, I'm so tempted to get one and compare it against my Blackberry Bold 9700. Then take a hammer and smash it. =D

Go to China. Dude, they can imitate almost anything you name it. This crossover Bold-Nokia E71 is just piece of cake. I wish they can imitate jiggy jiggy Paris Hilton just for me :D

Check out the Blueberry a3000 from the CSLcare website:

Looks like a Bold/Tour mashup. Notice the dual signal indicators and dual call buttons. Kind of neat having dual sim capabilities. Of course we would never see that here in the States..........

I travel to China on business 5-8 times a year and while in the southern city of Shenzhen, I always hit up my favorite knock off shopping center at the Lo Wu train station. (It's a 5 story mall with 100% knock offs)
Anyways, I took pictures of knock off Blackberries, some with
track pads, and most had an extending antenna for watching TV.

If anyone wants to see my pics, or wants one while Im there next, you can PM me and Ill give you my contact info.

Each phone is about 100RMB (About 14USD) and they DO NOT work in the US. Other countries unknown.

hoang.tnguyen

Haha oh god. But this knockoff looks oddly familiar to the Nokia E72

bduschel

Why have we all not just dropped our RIm devices and run over to BlueBerry? Clearly this is the technology to have!!

R1cE

Can the crackberry team do a review?? Lol

skylartoups

This phone looks awful I don't care how it preforms...

vanesserstation

I keep looking at it hoping I'll change my mind.

makya53

They make about every phone on there site, go free market. Thats why lawyers can pay off there crazy student loans.

dgbrock

Does this mean you'll have to change the name of this site to ScrewBerry.com?

brandon denson

YOU PAY FOR WHAT YOU GET!!.......lol?

WhutChaDoin

The RaspBerry? The DingleBerry?

uncle.bob
