RIM has launched the Porsche Design P’9981 smartphone from BlackBerry, a BlackBerry smartphone that has, unsurprisingly, been designed by Porsche.
It’s not the first time that the middle-class car-manufacturer beloved by the upwardly mobile has turned its hand to mobile phone design, but it is the first time its futuristic style and sharp racing angles have made their way to a BlackBerry.
The handset comes running BlackBerry OS 7 featuring an exclusive Porsche Design UI and bespoke augmented reality app. Given that designers and car manufacturers really know what they’re talking [...]
Well, that was quick. Mere hours after holding a press conference stating that it didn’t know when BlackBerry users would have their BBM, internet, and email working again, services have begun to come back online. Apparently email is up across the globe, as is BBM. Web browsing, however, continues to be “temporarily” unavailable to those on EMEIA networks in Europe, the Middle East, India, Africa and Latin America. There is of course a considerable backlog of messages to get through, but the good news is that all the BlackBerry bits and bytes are flowing freely once again. Hit [...]

RIM have taken a trick out of Sprint’s book for HTC Evo 4G and are believed to be rolling out BlackBerry 9800 in June which happens to be the same month in which Apple will be launching its already leaked iPhone HD.
While this is leaked news, this is one which you could rank as a juicy rumor. AT&T are believed to be the exclusive carrriers of this handset. Infact, Apple’s favorite son have ordered a rather suprisingly large number of handsets in the 1 million range. The CDMA version will be landing at Sprint in fall.
BlackBerry 9800 has the distinction of being RIM’s first phone [...]
RIM looking to join the Tablet party. BlackBerry Leaks reports that RIM folks are working on an iPad competitor.
If the source has got it right, the RIM will be revealing a Tablet that is smaller and slimmer than the iPad. The Tablet which will be running a fully powered BlackBerry OS also has a couple of catchy names to it – BlackPad or Cobalt.
Well this was always expected, a trend setting iPad getting trend followers. The question is what chance they stand against the magical gadget which has already reached the 1M count in less than a count. Here is the troubling point – the [...]
When I first downloaded the beta version of the new Twitter for BlackBerry application to my Curve 8900, I’ll admit I was enamored. The app reflected the minimal, simplistic design of the Twitter website, with obvious buttons, an always-present tweet box, and nice, easy-to-read text.
But I was also confused. I thought it was the creation of RIM, as that’s who came to DVICE pitching its trial run, but upon the app’s public launch last week, it was revealed that it’s really the “official” Twitter app for BlackBerry, and that the microblogging service worked with [...]
BlackBerry App World is celebrating its first birthday, with RIM’s application store arriving on April 1 2009 in Canada, the US and the UK.
BlackBerry App World – now available in 46 countries – finally brought apps for the popular BlackBerry devices, and aided in making the handsets more consumer friendly.
“Whilst the BlackBerry platform has always been built to accommodate applications, the launch of BlackBerry App World has made it easy for consumers to browse and download apps safe in the knowledge that whatever shows up in the store will work for their model, on their network,” [...]
The rumours of a RIM BlackBerry with both a hybrid and touchscreen have gained greater weight thanks to a new analyst note.
Chris Umiastowski from TD Newcrest has written that the new device would have the BlackBerry Storm-like clickable screen as well as a physical keyboard, which would be an odd experience.
The Storm uses a click screen to simulate a key press, so if there are physical keys, it would be strange to bother with the complex and expensive tech.
Umiastowski also noted that the WebKit browser RIM is working, after buying out developer Torch, is progressing well, enabling [...]
Motorola has filed a complaint over RIM’s BlackBerry range, claiming they infringe a number of patents it holds.
The case has been filed with the International Trade Commission in the US, and Moto is looking to block RIM from importing what it calls ‘infringing products’.
The patents relate to Wi-Fi access, application and power management, and even the UI – which would be strange given Motorola’s clunky interface, but we assume there must be some good elements it believes RIM has nabbed.
The litigation is ongoing, but Motorola believes there time has come to bring [...]
