Some BlackBerry News You May Have Missed Last Week



Last week was an awesome week for BlackBerry 6 leaks as we saw the Curve and Pearl 3G, Bold 9700 and Bold 9650 all get blogged. There are some cool PlayBook articles worth checking out too.

Rogers BlackBerry Bold 9780 Available from Future Shop at $149.99 on 3 Year


blackberry bold 9780

The Rogers BlackBerry Bold 9780 is currently listed on the Future Shop website at $149.99 on a 3 year contract. The Bold 9780 is the same look and feel as the 9700, except it has a small spec boost, a better 5MP camera, and it ships with BlackBerry 6. It should be interesting to see how well this smartphone sells, considering the Curve 3G is going for $49.99 on a 3 year, and the 9700 is $99 on a 3 year. With the BlackBerry 6 upgrade coming anyways, is a 5MP camera important to you versus 3.2MP?

BlackBerry 6 Response Times on the Bold 9700 vs the Torch 9800


Have you loaded BlackBerry 6 on your Bold 9700? Even the leaked version that hit the Internet recently is more responsive than the Torch 9800. I’ve loaded the latest version of BlackBerry 6 on each device and even though the Torch 9800 has more icons on the screen, the Bold 9700 is definitely more responsive. Hopefully the Torch will get faster with a few more updates because the lag time on the device is a little frustrating. Other than that, the Torch is arguably the best BlackBerry to date.

BerryReader Google Reader App Updated with Twitter and Facebook Sharing



BlackBerry 6 has some pretty cool social features with its new Social Feeds app but the RSS reader could be better. Anyone who is seriously into RSS feeds uses Google Reader and it’s a shame BlackBerry 6 doesn’t integrate. For those looking for a good Google Reader solution there’s BerryReader. The app has recently been updated with BlackBerry 6 support and the ability to share stories on Twitter and Facebook. Other features include:

  • Access your All Items, Starred Items, Shared Items, a single feed or a single folder for reading
  • Automatically updates in the background
  • Manage (add/remove) subscriptions from your device
  • Share articles via e-mail, Twitter or Facebook
  • Read the selected feed or folder even while offline, changes to labels and tags will automatically be synced when network coverage is regained
  • Get notified whenever new articles are available (Includes custom LED color support through BeBuzz)
  • Choose between compact and full layout and black on white or white on black color scheme
  • Swipe left/right on an article header to mark read/star the article (touchscreen devices only)
  • Hover over an article to open a shortcut popup for easy changing star/like/tag of an article (touchscreen devices only)
  • Fully optimized and compressed synchronization to keep your data usage at a minimum
  • Optimized for minimum memory and battery usage

Grab a copy of BerryReader from the store. The app is a little on the pricey side at $9.95 but it’s got a lot of features and a lot of work went into it.
