BlackBerry Cool Roundup for the Week of January 25th

Comments

The most exciting news this week was definitely checking out the BlackBerry Magnum. It’s really a shame that this device will never see the light of day (sources tell us), but it’s still very possible that a touchscreen/QWERTY hybrid is in the cards. Even though the Magnum had no OS loaded on it, we could still see that it used SurePress, which in my opinion would have been a little awkward. On the other hand, the Bold 9000 form factor is one I sincerely miss and hope RIM brings it back.

For all of you who want the BlackBerry Cool wallpaper that I use for these posts, download it from the above image (large size here) and use our Wallpaper service to resize the image. Now lets get caught up on the news.
