08/19/2010, The folks over at Boy Genius have managed to score a leaked document that shows some details of the replacement for the BlackBerry Bold 9700, strangely listed as the BlackBerry Bold R020. The phone will more or less look the same, with the main changes being internal. The device will be getting a 5-megapixel camera, 512MB of RAM, and will be launched with BlackBerry OS 6. Doesn’t look like it will […]
08/17/2010, U.S. Cellular will be rolling out the BlackBerry Bold 9650 tomorrow, where this CDMA/GSM 9650 handset is similar to the ones available on Sprint and Verizon Wireless over the past few months alread, albeit running on EV-DO Rev. A, UMTS/HSPA 2100 MHz, quad-band EDGE/GPRS/GSM. Other hardware specifications are pretty much run-of-the-mill such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, 512 MB RAM, a 3.2-megapixel camera and being BlackBerry OS 6 ready. Expect […]
08/10/2010, The BlackBerry Bold 9780 which has yet to hit the market will come with 3G bands 1, 2, 5, and 6, operating on the 800 MHz, 850 MHz, 1900 MHz, and 2100 MHz spectrums – all of these are the same as what the good people at AT&T utilize. Prior to this, the device had only been seen with bands 1, 4 and 8, which would mean it had the […]
08/06/2010, The BlackBerry Torch, also known as the Bold 9800, which will succeed the Bold 9700, is touted to hit the market this August 12th – but some folks have already caught a glimpse of it at some AT&T stores. While the external box itself looks rather dull, it is more or less apparent that its contents are way more important. We will just have to wait and see whether this […]
08/03/2010, It seems that it isn’t the Dell Streak but the BlackBerry Torch which will be featured in the mystery AT&T monolith display that we talked about last week, appearing in several AT&T stores around the country. Since there is no more mystery involved on the said device (also known as the BlackBerry Bold 9800), why not head on to our BlackBerry Torch hands-on page for your reading pleasure?
08/03/2010, Research in Motion’s latest smartphone, the slider BlackBerry Torch (also known as the BlackBerry 9800), will be arriving on AT&T and hitting the market this August 12th for $199.99 a pop if you decide to agree to a 2-year contract, of course. Needless to say, it will run on the new BlackBerry OS 6 while featuring specifications which will surely make it the most advanced BlackBerry to date. It will […]
07/29/2010, It seems that the BlackBerry Bold 9650 isn’t the only kid on the block that is capable of running on OS 6.0, as a leaked video of the BlackBerry Bold 9780 shows the same operating system running just fine as well. This could very well be the device that will ship at RIM’s event next week, but bear in mind that this is a pre-release device, so you can bet […]
07/28/2010, It seems that Verizon Wireless’ BlackBerry Bold 9650 will be able to run OS 6 without missing a beat, despite initial speculation that OS 6 requires at least 512MB of memory. Technically, the Bold 9650 was the first BlackBerry smartphone to offer 512MB memory, hence sparking off such a “theory”. Just in case you’re unfamiliar with what OS 6 will deliver, it will include a new universal search, categorized icons […]
07/07/2010, Want to get your daily fix of BlackBerry news? It seems that someone out there managed to get his hands on three unreleased BlackBerry phones, which include the Curve 9300, the BlackBerry 9670 flip phone, and the BlackBerry 9800 slider (which is powered by OS 6). The videos have been posted online, and you can check them out after the jump. Let us know what you think about them.
06/24/2010, Rogers Wireless of Canada is offering the BlackBerry Bold 9700 for free, according to the placard you see here, although you will need to agree to a 3-year agreement in the first place. We have no idea on whether this price drop is a momentary one, or will it be a permanent move? If the answer is the latter, then it could mean Rogers is looking to clear its inventory […]
06/15/2010, While RIM’s upcoming BlackBerry 9800 slider has been dubbed the Bold for a while now, the latest word going around is that the device would be renamed as the Torch, and there will be a new family of BlackBerry slider devices that bear the Torch label. It’s also worth noting that RIM had registered the Torch name back in April, so that does seem to lend some credibility to the […]
06/12/2010, Think that your shiny new BlackBerry Bold 9650 is beginning to look just like everybody else’s out there? While you can’t add any new features to the cell phone, the folks over at ColorWare can help you customize its colors to make it stand out, and hopefully you won’t pick the same color scheme as everybody else out there. You’ll also need to lighten your wallet by a good $150 […]
06/04/2010, Rumors of an update to the BlackBerry Bold 9700 have been popping up from time to time, and now it’s been suggested that the rumored device, the Onyx II, will essentially be a BlackBerry Bold 9700 that packs 512MB of RAM, a 5-megapixel camera and more importantly offer BlackBerry OS 6 with a Webkit browser. Another possibility is that this device will offer OpenGL support, though this is far from […]

As with the previous leak, the carrier has confirmed that the device will be available for purchase online from June 3rd, and will also be available in stores on June 10th onwards. The device will set you […]
