If you are a Blackberry fan in the UK using the Vodafone network or ready to move to that network we have a launch date on the new Bold 9900 smartphone. We already knew that the Bold 9900 was heading to Vodafone in the UK, but what we didn’t know was the specific launch date. We learned that Vodafone would be getting the Bold 9900 at the same time we found out that the Torch 9810 4G would be hitting AT&T this month.
The BlackBerry Torch 9860 is set to take on the iPhone 4 and the HTC Desire S in the mid-sized smartphone market, and to do this it sports a couple of interesting features, some of which you wouldn’t necessary associate with a BlackBerry. Read on.
What do you think of when we say the word ‘BlackBerry’? Most of you will probably think of a compact device with a full qwerty keyboard. The BlackBerry Torch 9860 is somewhat unusual in that it abandons such a physical input method in favour of the all-touch interface that’s now de rigueur among its rivals.
With the constant drip-drip of Android, Windows Phone 7 and iPhone news inflicting a kind of Chinese water torture on poor old Blackberry, the Canadian giant finally cracked and announced three new smartphones at its ‘biggest ever’ event last week.
The Bold 9900 (its premium QWERTY messenger), Torch 9850 (touchscreen-only successor to the Storm) and Torch 9810 (follow-up to the original Torch, with a slide-out QWERTY) all run Blackberry’s new OS 7 and will be available in the next month. But are they good enough to hold the Android hordes at bay?

The rebirth of RIM is almost upon us. Last week Rogers announced their 3-year price plans for the upcoming BlackBerry Bold 9900, Torch 9860 and Torch 9810. The Bold 9900 came in at $249.99 while both the 9810 and 9860 hit the $199.99 mark. A few days ago we revealed the complete price plans for the Bold 9810, no-term cost came in at $549.99 and was $50 less for each of the other yearly contracts. Images have now surfaced online from CrackBerry that shows the complete price plans for the 9900 and the 9860. Also, the 9810 doc looks like it’ll come two colours, grey (chrome) and a white version.
The only thing remaining for Rogers to do with the new upcoming BlackBerry devices is actually launch them. The complete pricing was revealed last week for the Bold 9900, Torch 9860 and Torch 9810, employees started their training on the smartphones and dummy devices found their way into stores.
Popping up in the Rogers inventory system is the hardware upgrades for the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and Torch 9810, so a launch is imminent… will you be upgrading or buying any of the new BlackBerry devices?

The recently revealed BlackBerry Curve 9360 is proving to be a surprising bit of hardware. Not only did it (thankfully) get rid of the chintzy chrome-ish highlights of its last iteration, IntoMobile reports that it also packs a a more competitive hardware configuration (hello NFC!) and a little feature hidden in the settings that doesn’t seem to have popped up on any other OS 7 device recently: mobile hotspot.
While the 9360 (affectionately referred to as the “Apollo”) is a significant upgrade for the budget-conscious BlackBerry owner, this development adds a bit of confusion to the mobile hotspot question.
