BlackBerry Curve 8900 In White Coming To AT&T?!?

Seems as though RIM is not only flooding the market with new BlackBerry smartphones but now also getting in the habit of relaunching old devices, just with new paintjobs. First we saw the BlackBerry Bold 9000 arrive in white on AT&T and Rogers (more carriers coming) but now we are getting a look at the BlackBerry Curve 8900 in white. BGR didn't have any details on release date or...

Sergey emailed me about his latest app Fancy Shake, and it made me laugh a bit. I had a vision of every Storm user shaking their device to answer and Storms flying through windows and into walls. Fancy Shake gives you the option to answer incmoing calls just by shaking your device, and you can also silence and reject calls by flipping your device over. You can choose any combination of shaking...

Verizon Announces the BlackBerry Curve 8530 Smartphone

Ha! So it's not the Curve2. Looks like all that crazy Curve2 talk and Curve2 promotional material was just VZW being a little overzealous in branding the Curve themselves (in reality you'd think it should be the Curve 8550 now that it has WiFi). Whatever the case, Verizon has gone ahead and announced the BlackBerry Curve 8530 Smartphone. It goes on sale November 20th and will be $99 after a $...
