Personally, I don’t like downloading unofficial OS versions because of what they can do to your device, but this time I’m going for it.

It simply takes too long to get a software update so I’m going to be getting OS 5.0.0.100 for my Curve 8900. This latest update will hopefully fix the bugs found in OS 5.0.0.93 found earlier.

Download OS 5.0.0.100 for your BlackBerry Curve 8900.

Orange have announced they are offering the BlackBerry Curve 8900 on a Pay As You Go plan. The offering builds on the success of the BlackBerry Pearl 8120 Pay As You Go program, which Orange introduced earlier this year.

The BlackBerry Curve 8900 will be available at launch with six months free Internet access. To take advantage of the offer, you must first purchase the BlackBerry Curve 8900 smartphone for £245. You then choose one of Orange’s existing Pay As You Go animal packages, and then you receive free Internet access for the first six months. After that, you can take out Orange’s Pay As You Go BlackBerry Internet Service for £5 per month, on a monthly rolling subscription.

Free audio streaming app Stitcher coming to BlackBerry 8900

Stitcher, a free media/podcast player is currently available on App World and is compatible with the BlackBerry Curve 8300, 8310, 8320 and Bold 9000. It is currently available for AT&T and T-Mobile customers but does not yet support the Curve 8900. The company has said it will be just a few weeks until the device is supported, which is great considering the Curve 8900 has just arrived on AT&T for $199 after a $100 mail-in rebate with a new agreement.

Features:

  • Listen – Stream the best podcasts, radio shows and other great audio to your mobile phone.
  • Customize – Stitch your favorite programs into personalized, on-demand stations.
  • Discover – Find new shows you’ll love in Stitcher’s stations, or let Stitcher recommend shows to you based on your preferences.

Rogers BlackBerry Curve 8900 unboxing and first impressions

The Rogers BlackBerry Curve 8900 made its way into our office this afternoon and I’ve put together some first impressions and pics for you. The first thing that struck me about the device was the amazing form factor. The device fits so nicely in the palm of your hand and it’s very lightweight. As someone who loved the original Curve, this device seemed like the perfect upgrade. The new OS makes it look especially sweet.
