Top 5 BlackBerry Bold Accessories


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


BlackBerry Cool Plane

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


AT&T holds BlackBerry Bold launch event without launching the Bold


AT&T BlackBerry Bold party

You have to hand it to AT&T for keeping their chin up and throwing a party even when the guest of honor can’t make it. AT&T’s NYC BlackBerry Bold launch party took place last night, and while the BlackBerry Bold was a little too fashionably late, Michael Phelps was there along with Madonna in video form. Oh yes, everyone in attendance received an IOU for a BlackBerry Bold.

Hmm, a launch event without the release of the launch device. Reminds us of that Rogers BlackBerry Pearl Flip event that happened a few weeks back. Is this the beginning of a trend?
