3 UK launches the BlackBerry Bold 9000

Comments

BlackBerry Bold

3 UK has finally made its way to 3 UK. The Bold is one of the best BlackBerry devices on the market right now with its slick look and feel as well as powerful media capabilities. Personally, I’m not a big fan of the keyboard (I like my keys separated), but there is a device for everyone with RIM.

With 3 UK, the device has access to the 3MusicStore, multiple email account support and unlimited Windows Messenger access.

The plan will go for £30 per month with 500 mins, unlimited text/email/internet/windows live messenger.

Howard Stern prefers the BlackBerry Bold over the Palm Pre

Comments

Not that Howard Stern is necessarily a good judge of what a good mobile phone is, but nonetheless he chose the BlackBerry Bold over the Palm Pre. Stern said that the Pre was a fine phone (it’s unclear whether he actually held it), but said its inability to connect to Lotus Notes was a dealbreaker.

Again, the world’s finest smartphone for consumers and enterprise alike wins.

Top 5 BlackBerry Bold Accessories

Comments

It’s Wednesday, November 5th, which means by now Americans have finished waiting in two lines: one to vote and one to pick up their AT&T BlackBerry Bold. For our friends down south waking up to a new President and a new BlackBerry, we’ve compiled a list of 5 accessories you need to help maximize your Bold to the extreme!

MicroSD Card
Trust us, with all great multimedia features on the BlackBerry Bold, 1GB of internal memory isn’t going to cut it. We recommend the SanDisk 8GB MicroSDHC card (with a MobileMate Micro Reader) for all your image, movie and music storage needs. If the $60 8GB model is too much, there’s also a $50 4GB model available.

Bluetooth Headset
Even though the BlackBerry Bold has great call quality, most power users will still need a Bluetooth headset. Most people are vary particular about their Bluetooth headset, so instead of trying to find one to satisfy all your needs, we’ll just point you to the most popular line of headsets in the BlackBerry Cool Store: The Jabra Bluetooth headset line. Below you find links to the $70 BT8040 model and the $20 BT2040 model.

Pre-BBDC Wrap-up: Stuff that happened while we were in the air

Comments

You can always tell if a show will be good based upon the amount of buzz and news that surrounds it. The BlackBerry Developer Conference is no exception: apparently news in the BlackBerry world only breaks now when you’re in the air without a stable Wi-Fi connection. Here’s everything important that’s happened in the last 48 hours.

AT&T BlackBerry Bold to (finally) be released October 27: The Boy Genius has posted training slides indicating that the BlackBerry Bold might actually see release on AT&T before halloween, but at this point, do you release trust any AT&T Bold release date? (via BGR)

The National Post explains the BlackBerry Storm’s name Surprisingly it has nothing to do with Halle Berry or the X-Men. Shame. (via National Post)

RIM’s 2009 lineup gets clarified (kinda) Boy Genius was also able to get his hands upon Rogers upcoming BlackBerry lineup. Remember the BlackBerry Magnum we told you about a few days ago? Apparently it’s actual development name is the Pluto, which doesn’t sound as cool. Here’s what BG had to say:

* BlackBerry Curve 8900 in Q1
* BlackBerry Storm variant in Q2
* BlackBerry 9220 (Magnum, think BlackBerry Curve 8900 with 3G) in Q3
* BlackBerry 9900 (Pluto, think Bold with touchscreen) in Q4
