BlackBerry Bold 9790 on Vodafone

Vodafone UK customers ... the wait is over! The BlackBerry Bold 9790 is now available on the network. The smaller of the Bold devices, dubbed as the little brother/sister to the BlackBerry Bold 9900, sports a 1GHz processor and a 2.45 in touchscreen display. It is available for free from £30 a month on 24-month contract, this gives you 600 mins, unlimited texts and 500MB of data. It is available on lower tariffs for a one-off payment.

In releasing the BlackBerry Bold 9790, Vodafone becomes the second UK network to do so (with O2 UK being the first). That just leaves three more networks to release it, as well as our favourite mobile phone stores Carphone Warehouse and Phones 4 U. Hopefully it won't be too long now until other networks have this awesome device available.

BlackBerry News,
BlackBerry PlayBook

We have been waiting to hear an official date for OS 2.0 a really long time from BlackBerry or a RIM employee. Ever since the first whispers of a date were published, it's all been speculation. Today though we got some official RIM confirmation. At the Developing Native Games with the BlackBerry NDK 2.0 Webcast today, Angel Aldana, RIM Manager (Latin America Alliances), confirmed the official date of PlayBook's OS 2.0 launch to be... Tuesday, February 21st! Barring any setbacks, we will have a shiny new OS on our PlayBooks in about 5 days! This is awesome.
