More BlackBerry Javelin Hardware Sweetness!

More BlackBerry Javelin Hardware Sweetness!

* Updated Note: When I first blogged this I totally forgot about the device model name games that have been going on... I referred to the Javelin as the '9300' but '8900' and '8301' have been tossed around lately too (I think 8900 is now where it's at). I'll just refer to it as the codename 'Javelin' to be safe. My bad. Sorry about that!! * If you're not dreaming of the BlackBerry Bold...

Verizon BlackBerry 9530 to Take World by "Storm" Oct. 13?!

Verizon BlackBerry 9530 to Take World by "Storm" Oct. 13?!

Master Verizon tipster Kevin Byrne just posted the above image over at HoFo. It seems the SKU for the RIM BlackBerry BB9530 Global is now in Verizon's system!! Read between the lines on Kevin's post, and it seems like the Thunder may just be a "BlackBerry Storm" after all, though there is a "T" after the 9530 in the image above which sort of screams Thunder. I guess time will tell both...

Rogers To Begin BlackBerry Bold Training

Rogers To Begin BlackBerry Bold Training

When it comes to Rogers BlackBerry Bold release dates, the blogosphere has been jinxed, with delay after delay making accurate-when-published rumored release dates wrong (say that 3x fast!). But we are getting close now. Dive into the forums and complete the tour de blogs, and you'll find all signs are pointing to an August 19th (maybe 20th) availability date.

Rogers Quarter 3 Hardware Line Up!

Rogers Quarter 3 Hardware Line Up!

Following up on yesterday's Rogers 8220 Info, here's a shot of Roger's complete Q3 hardware line up. It seems Rogers doesn't even know what to call the 8220. On the image above it's still referred to as the KickStart (click image for bigger version), yet on the fact sheet after the jump it's all about the BlackBerry Pearl 8220. Also new - the WiFi equipped 8320 will be arriving at Rogers...

Will.I.Am's Video "One More Chance" is a BlackBerry Ad

Wow. Gotta give a thumbs up to RIM's marketing team. I'm sure they were involved with the BlackBerry product placement in this video. Will.I.Am spends about a minute singing it up in front of a BlackBerry ad at a bus stop with Curve in hand. Sweet song and Cool video though - maybe RIM should have hit up Will.I.Am for Bold ringtunes instead of Mr. Copeland.  We shouldn't be totally...

Telus to get Canada Exclusive on Touchscreen BlackBerry?!

Telus to get Canada Exclusive on Touchscreen BlackBerry?!

Looks like I might be jumping the Rogers ship and moving over to Telus in a few months. Why? Word has it they are poised to become the exclusive carrier of RIM's touchscreen BlackBerry in Canada. Yesterday in the Globe and Mail, in an article called 10 Reasons to Buy Rogers, the author dropped in this seemingly innocent line: "On the other hand, Telus is expected to launch (exclusively...

BlackBerry 8220 Easter Egg: White Screen of Death is Apparently "Sexy, Isn't It?"

Instead of spending yesterday evening on a patio enjoying a cool bevvie, it seems our pal Jibi decided to stay in doors and play on the BlackBerry KickStart (or is it Pearl now?!) 8220 device simulator he got a hold of. And ya know what, it was time well spent as he discovered an Easter Egg buried within the simulator! As explained by Jibi: When given a JVM error we all love to hate...

WTF?! BlackBerry KickStart is BlackBerry PEARL 8220?!

WTF?! BlackBerry KickStart is BlackBerry PEARL 8220?!

OK. This just got weird. Following up on the Rogers BlackBerry KickStart pics from earlier today, our buds at BlackBerry Cool just posted the photo below which shows the new BlackBerry flip phone (on Rogers at least) is borrowing its candybar-style sibling's name and apparently will hit the market as the BlackBerry PEARL 8220. Could be this final branding decision was made when the model...

First Look: RED BlackBerry KickStart 8220

Our pal Jibi just posted some new images and screencaps of the KickStart taken from RIM's 8220 Device Simulator. We've had a good notion that come commercial release the KickStart will be available in a multitude of colors and the images above show the first real departure from the black-on-black KickStart we've been looking at in our Hands On Review. I'm not sure how I feel about the shade...

Verizon is now offering the 8330 Curve for $99.99, the 8130 Pearl for $79.99 and the 8830 World Editiion for $149.99. Not too...
