New BlackBerry: the “Stealth”!

BlackBerry Stealth

Breaking news here, folks. Engadget Mobile is reporting (via famed BlackBerryForums.com moderator Boy Genius) that there’s a new BlackBerry coming out sometime around October/November. Dubbed the “Stealth” according to a leaked timetable map from either Cingular or RIM, the new BlackBerry looks like another SureType device and is similar in design to the 7130c. The Stealth should be released with EDGE network support, MP3 music playback, removable memory, but no camera.

We’ll keep you informed as we learn more.

BlackBerry Cool » Is RIM making a big mistake with the Stealth?
June 28th, 2006 at 11:19 am

[…] So here’s what we know so far: coming from a fairly reliable source (who broke the news on the BlackBerry 8700 way back when), we have a grainy picture of a BlackBerry that is set to be released some time in November or December. Very similar in design to the 7130c, the BlackBerry “Stealth” looks to be a SureType device with MP3 music capability, removable memory, EDGE network support and a thumbpad (this will most likely not replace the scrollwheel, but instead be used for dedicated music controls). The Stealth sounds fairly similar to the “lifestyle” line of devices RIM CEO Mike Lazaridis mentioned during WES 2006, although it’s missing the Wi-Fi and integrated GPS he talked about (let’s not get started about camera functionality). Are we here at BlackBerry Cool the only ones looking for more? […]

BlackBerry Cool » BlackBerry Stealth Revealed: The 8100
August 6th, 2006 at 5:46 pm

[…] After a couple of weeks of nothing but patent applications and webcast releases, August comes roaring through like gangbusters with leaked images of the BlackBerry Stealth — or should we say the BlackBerry 8100. Engadget’s Random Asian Dude confirms that the 8100 has a camera, microSD slot, EDGE network support and media playback functionality. It’s hard to tell, but it seems RIM has foregone it’s much-loved side scroll-wheel in favor of a d-pad at the front. Engadget expects the 8100 to launch in November on Cingular (probably the same time for Rogers) and even earlier for T-Mobile customers. […]

BlackBerry Cool » New BlackBerry Patent: 4.2’s Voice Commands?
August 11th, 2006 at 8:43 am

[…] The BlackBerry Cool staff believes this patent is really a description of OS 4.2’s voice command and response features. We could also link to a comment made by Boy Genius (who’s had his hands all over the Pearl) about how he’s asked the unreleased BlackBerry how much battery life it has — and it told him — but BlackBerry Forums is down and we can’t find the comment (if someone can get to it and provide a link in our comments section, that would be great). Below you’ll find the patent abstract and a PDF image link. […]
