The BlackBerry 9000?

75 Comments

BlackBerry 9000BGR has acquired some info on the next big leap for BlackBerry, along with this concept shot of a touchscreened prototype. 3G of the HSDPA variety with a 600mhz processor to handle all that data are both rumored to be a part of the package. On top of that, the new BlackBerry will let you backup and restore right from the microSD card. No more Desktop Manager when switching devices, just swap your card and you’re good to go. The Genius speculates an early ’08 release for this beauty, and for the sake of getting our grubby mitts on one, we hope he’s right.

    the blackberry 9000 is, ‘NOT’ the voyager, the voyager for verizon is a P.O.S and has many issues, as a matter of fact they have pulled all stock off shelves for verizon dealers.. when i get the 9000 ill be more then happy to show how and why it kicks everything else’s ass on the cell market today. It is simply unparelled in this industry. something anyone whos a fan of RIM would agree with.

    youre crazy if you think the touch keyboard sucks. i type laser fast on my ipod touch (I have a blackberry too). If you hit the wrong key you just keep going and it figures you meant to hit a key near it based on the other letters in the word. You can actually type a word with no correct letters and it will replace it with the right word. it works really well. My guess is the 9000′s software won’t be as good as the iphones, but the iphone doesn’t have push email which is a big problem for me.

    HA HA, I can’t believe people are falling for this. There is NO blackberry 9000 coming out!! I would have heard about it already, I am a blackberry tech, and there are no official sites that talk about the blackberry 9000. I just met with people from RIM (the maker of blackberry) today and they told me that it was a joke. Some people took a Blackberry Curve and edited it with adobe photoshop to make it look like an iphone with touch screen and called it the Blackberry 9000. It’s a fake!!!

    In fact, RIM told me they will probably never manufacture anything like the iphone. They will always have keyboards.

    Who is to be believed here? I talked with a guy in an AT&T store and he said it was coming out in May or June. I’ll just wait and see I guess.

    Depecheman, you’re an idiot. If you were an ACTUAL RIM rep (like myself, rep I.d. 6562857ON), you would know the Blackberry 9003 is due for release by June 8 2008( yes, exactly a year after the shitty iphone debuted) And it really will kill the iphone. And it is definitely NOT a shitbox like the Verizon Voyager. Then again everything Verizon has sucks balls.

    I entirely agree that Blackberry phones can dangerously become synonimous with “boring phone”, unless the CEO of Blackberry wakes up to the real world. This brand is notoriously slow to adapt and compete. Every single model has a drawback that is so basic to cure. Just get a bloody model that can fight head on with the Nokia E61i (with a front face camera), 3G, HSDPA, good camera, improved file management and you are there. For now, all types are silly phones.
