Taiwan Mobile giving away free BlackBerrys to enterprise

Comments

Taiwan Mobile

In order to rope in a few corporate contracts, Taiwan Mobile now has a promotion to give away the BlackBerry 8120, BlackBerry 8300, BlackBerry 8707 and BlackBerry 8700 to enterprise customers who are willing to sign up for a monthly NT$1,499 ($US 47.70) plan. Taiwan Mobile is aiming to crank up their enterprise activations tenfold before the end of the year, which, while ambitious, could very well happen with a promo this enticing. Australia’s having a similar promotion with the BlackBerry Bold, which will likely see a lot of success. If you’re in an enterprise in the neighbourhood, you can contact Taiwan Mobile here to get started.

BlackBerry Javelin comparison shots

BlackBerry Javelin comparison

While it might not be the cleanest picture in the world (you would want to see these pictures of the BlackBerry Javelin if you’re looking for clarity), this shot does give us a feel for the size of the BalckBerry Javelin versus the BlackBerry 8800 and BlackBerry 8300. As you can see, the BlackBerry Javelin is well smaller than the big ol’ 8800, and just about as big as the Curve. While the BlackBerry Javelin might not be packing 3G, its slim form factor, 480 x 360 screen, 3.2 megapixel camera and Curve-style keypad are winning a lot of people over already. Expect this one out around late November – maybe even before Christmas if the release date isn’t pushed back.

BlackBerrys to land in Vietnam in October

Comments

Ricepicker

Viettel will be bringing the BlackBerry 8700, BlackBerry 8800, BlackBerry 8100 and BlackBerry 8320 to Vietnam this October. The 4,000 devices on the way will be the first shipment Vietnam sees, and Veittel is lined up to be the sole distributer in the long run. We actually get quite a few Vietnamese readers on BBCool, so it’s good news for them. Mobifone is in a close race with Viettel for cellular subscribers, but an exclusive BlackBerry deal could be the tiebreaker that puts Viettel in the lead.

Du launches BlackBerry service in UAE

Comments

DuAnnounced back in back in May, Du’s BlackBerry service has finally gone live after government approval and is now available in the United Arab Emirates. There’s quite the BlackBerry lineup for Du, including the BlackBerry 8100 for AED 1,799.00, the BlackBerry 8300 for AED 1,880.00, the BlackBerry 8700 for AED 1,350.00 and the BlackBerry 8800 for AED 2,199.00. It’s a solid start for an inaugural launch and shows that Du is clearly throwing their chips in with RIM in order to take on the current leading carrier, Etisalat. It’ll be tough going, but we certainly know what it’s like in Canada to not have much in the way of competition.

OS 4.5 available from Orange UK

22 Comments

OrangeThe latest BlackBerry operating system has been making the rounds by way of private beta builds for awhile now, but it looks like a few carriers are starting to make them publicly available, including Orange UK for the BlackBerry 8120 and BlackBerry 8320, as well as TIM Italy for the 8100, 8300 and 8310. Odds are these will work hunky-dory for your own device, so feel free to give ‘em a shot and get on fresh goodies like HTML e-mail viewing (if your BIS supports it), remote e-mail lookup, native document viewing, and plenty more.

Whrrl is coming to BlackBerry! Wait, what is Whrrl?

Whrrl LogoHey, more LBS/Web 2.0 news. I’m beginning to notice a trend. How do I know that this Whrrl for BlackBerry announcement is Web 2.0 related? Well, it’s about ‘mobile social discovery’, ‘user generated content’, and they spell the name of their application without any vowels. Just a handy heads up for all you old school BlackBerry users who aren’t on Facebook yet.

That’s right, Pelago announced support today of their mobile social discovery service for BlackBerry Pearl and Curve devices. Whrrl combines mapping and micro-blogging technology for discovering and sharing local information on people, places, events and experiences. The application is free to download, but is only available right now to people in the U.S., so post a comment BlackBerry Nation and let us know what you think.

Whrrl can be downloaded at www.whrrl.com. Web 2.0, baby!
