Not satisfied with all of the BlackBerry OS 7 devices that RIM just rolled out? Well, then you’ll probably be delighted with the newly leaked BlackBerry Curve 9380 which has been caught in the wild for the first time. The BlackBerry Curve 9380 is the phone that we saw labeled ‘BlackBerry Curve Touch’ in that enormous RIM roadmap leak awhile back.
The photos, which were posted over on the CrackBerry forums, show the Curve 9380 in all of its glory. Sadly, the poster neglected to give us any details about the device but we can take a few thing away. First, it obviously doesn’t have a physical keyboard. It’s all-touch people. It also has a camera of unknown quality that will be taking advantage of a flash.
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.
The Blackberry 9900 Bold Touch is a highly anticipated mobile phone which is due for release soon. The handset provides a multitude of functionality including Internet access, multimedia capability as well as NFC support. The unit itself has dimensions of 115 mm x 66 m wide whilst being 10 mm thick and weighing 130 g in weight and utilises a 1.2 GHz processor as well is version 7.0 of the Blackberry operating system.
According to tech website Gizmodo, on Monday Canadian mobile phone maker company RIM announced via social networking websites Facebook and Twitter that its latest smartphone powered by the seventh version of its operating system will be launched a day after.
The action seems to be a marketing gimmick adopted by the company behind famous BlackBerry series as the very same day, Verizon, the network carrier leaked a video demonstrating the operations of OS 7 powered phone BlackBerry 9930.
BlackBerry is promising a “shiny, new and social all over” phone will be launched today. Late last night, BlackBerry’s Facebook wall and Twitter feed lit up with the news that we’ll see “new devices” with the lastest BlackBerry 7 operating system on board.
Based on the company’s leaked roadmap, we’ve got our fingers and toes crossed for the BlackBerry Storm 3, an all-touchscreen follow-up to the Storm and Storm 2.
The gossip is that the Storm 3 — which has leaked under the name Monaco – will have a 1.2GHz processor and 8GB of memory built in. The screen could be the highest resolution ever from BlackBerry, packing 480×800 pixels into a 3.7-inch display.
It’s time to put yet another Verizon and Motorola smartphone on your radar. Even as we’re still waiting for the long-anticipated Droid Bionic to arrive, rumors have started swirling for the next super phone, the Motorola Dinara.
According to sources close to Droid Life, the Dinara will arrive in late 2011 with a form factor that closely resembles a thinner and lighter Droid Bionic. Specifications are said to include a rear-facing 13-megapixel camera, a front-facing VGA camera, a non-replaceable internal battery, and an “HD” screen. It’s possible that the display will be qHD (960×540) as Motorola has been using the screen technology for recent handsets.
The “Pure Google Experience” phone skips all of the bloatware (pre-installed apps that nobody asked for) and custom UIs that manufacturers and carriers commonly tag onto Android phones. As the flagship phone for Android 2.3 Gingerbread, it was first released on T-Mobile last December. That was followed by a 4G (WiMax) compatible version that was released on Sprint in May. The AT&T model will be limited to 3G connectivity.
As part of Google’s flagship Nexus line, the Nexus S followed the Nexus One, which heralded the arrival of Android 2.1 Eclair in early 2010.
The BlackBerry Torch 9800 was last year’s big phone release for RIM. So far, it’s been exclusive to AT&T in the United States. A few weeks ago, the “BlackBerry Torch 9860” showed up on a leaked US Cellular roadmap. Now, Verizon may also be getting this alleged CDMA BlackBerry Torch. A Chinese BlackBerry fan site has posted images of the BlackBerry Torch 9860 with Verizon branding on the battery cover.
Research in Motion officially announced the BlackBerry Bold 9930 back in May, at the same time with the Bold 9900. The two smartphones are pretty much the same, the sole difference being that the 9930 has both GSM / HSDPA and CDMA / Ev-Do connectivity, while the 9900 is a GSM / HSDPA device only.
Naturally, the CDMA / Ev-Do capabilities allow the 9930 to be used on Verizon’s and Sprint’s networks. While neither of the two carriers has announced the Bold 9930, the smartphone has been spotted recently showing off a Verizon intro screen – thus VWZ could introduce the new Bold soon.
