What to expect from RIM in 2009: The year of the upgrades

Comments

So it seems as though 2009 will be the year of the upgrades. The following devices are rumored to hit shelves before 2010:

  • The BlackBerry Onyx aka Bold 9700
  • The BlackBerry Storm 2 9520
  • The BlackBerry Essex
  • The BlackBerry “Striker” 9100 (rumor probably has the codename wrong)

Lets take a quick look at each device, so you can see why 2009 should be dubbed “The Year of the Upgrades.” While these devices haven’t launched yet, and nothing is final, there are a variety of features that I would like to see ship with these devices, to truly add a great leap forward element for the device.

BlackBerry Javelin due before Christmas?

Comment

A leaked Rogers roadmap for upcoming BlackBerry releases is giving us some good ballpark dates to work with. The BlackBerry Bold and the BlackBerry Kickstart are dates we’re already pretty certain with, but it’s good to hear see the BlackBerry Javelin poking its head out for the Christmas rush in late November. If we could see the BlackBerry Thunder sometime in early ‘09, that would make for a pretty solid lineup in the forseeable future. Of course, we’re always left wondering “what’s next?” Personally, I’m still holding out for a slider.

BlackBerry Kickstart gets $50 pricetag?

Comments

Doug’s always been of the opinion that the upcoming flip BlackBerry will be coming super-cheap, even free, and it’s looking like he’s halfway right. Reports are coming in that you’ll be able to pick this sucker up for $50 on a two-year contract. Only in recent months up north have we seen the BlackBerry 8100 hitting those kinds of prices - having a device launch with a deal like that is bound to cause a ruckus. Our estimated release timeline is around September on T-Mobile, so save up your nickels and dimes for the new school year - a Kickstart will totally make you one of the cool kids.

More snaps of the BlackBerry Kickstart emerge

Comments

BlackBerry Kickstart comparison with the Bold

A few more pictures of the Kickstart have come out of the woodwork, showing off a nice comparison versus the BlackBerry Bold. That should give us a reasonable indicator of size… the main body looks just about as thick as the BlackBerry 9000, so maybe tack on another third when the flip is shut. The BlackBerry Kickstart will be RIM’s first flip device, featuring an external LCD display, Wi-Fi, a 2 megapixel camera and SureType keypad. Dig the new look? Our sources are saying the Kickstart will be hitting up T-Mobile come September, just in time for the school year.

BlackBerry KickStart pictures emerge

Comments

Oh boy, RIM isn’t going to like this. Our friends at CrackBerry have posted pictures of the BlackBerry KickStart. Is it just me, or does it not look as ugly as previously thought? I wonder how much radiation it emits. Post a comment and let us know what you think of RIM’s first FlipBerry.

Boy Genius unearths the BlackBerry 9110 (Codename: Seawolf)

Comment

Year after year, Boy Genius keeps the often boring summertime news cycle interesting by breaking new BlackBerry devices. The trend continues, this time with an .xml file revealing the BlackBerry 9110, which has essentially the coolest development codename ever: Seawolf. Pertinent features? It’s in the 9100 series family, which means a ‘reduced’ SureType keypad, and possibly flip-phone styling, but with GPS support.

Boy Genius seems to think the device is headed to AT&T. We wait with baited breath.

Kickstart slides reveal external LCD utilities

Comments

Some more information on the unreleased flip BlackBerry codenamed Kickstart has surfaced… The leaked slides seem to be an attempt to soothe the worries of diehard BlackBerry fans who are used to holstering their devices and checking them in a very specific way. The external LCD screen will prove to be a useful feature, showing off the first few lines of a message, the face of callers, scrolling through alerts easily with the side volume keys, and opening those alerts just by flipping the BlackBerry open. Outside of the business utilities, the outer screen will also show album art of music playing, which can be readily controlled by the volume and muting keys. Pretty standard stuff for existing flips, but definitely gives reasons for sticklers to switch their form factor.

Kickstart hitting up T-Mobile in late June?

Comment

A leaked product roadmap has shown a bevvy of mobiles hitting up the King of Magenta this summer (June 16 - August 1), including the BlackBerry Bold and the recently-revealed BlackBerry Kickstart. If the 9100 and 9000 are actually lined up for a simultaneous release, I’m a little boggled why they weren’t both announced at WES… initial reactions to the flip BlackBerry haven’t been especially promising, but hey, neither were those for the Bold, and I think it’s safe to say that attitude has seen a turnaround. For now, take this rumor with a grain of salt until photos of the actual roadmap are revealed.
