Flippin’ Sweet – BlackBerry 9670 Coming to Sprint?

Comments

The beat on the street per the boys of BGR (they may or may not ALSO be the boys of summer) is that the Verizon exclusivity of the new BlackBerry 9670 clamshell may have been as fleeting as your last summer hookup. According to new photos and details, the device may also be making its way over to Sprint for some additional CDMA love. Are you excited about the possibilities of this device on Sprint?

BlackBerryCool Roundup for the Week of June 7th

Comments

A lot of apps launched this week and every content provider has a way of providing all the World Cup 2010 news to your BlackBerry. We didn’t hear from Viigo this week which is strange because they’re usually very active when it comes to major sporting events such as the World Cup. The last press release was from March when the company joined RIM, and perhaps joining such a large organization naturally slows down your company. We’ve been hearing more about OS 6 and with each leaked video of the 9800 or 9670 clamshell, we learn a little more. OS 6 will feature a lot of new APIs for developers to play with and hopefully we’ll see an influx of apps that leverage these new features. This coming week we’ll also see the launch of App World 2.0 which should bring some interesting news for developers and users alike. Be sure to catch up on a week of BlackBerry after the jump.

Video of the BlackBerry Clamshell 9670 Hardware and OS 6

Comments

The BlackBerry Clamshell is the next generation of the Pearl Flip and video of the hardware and software are up courtesy of Driphter. This is a significant leap in the product line and it would be great if all BlackBerrys would take a similar jump in performance and hardware features. The clamshell 9670 is running 6.0.0.31, and it’s good to see the latest OS running on a non-touchscreen device. We have already seen OS 6 in action on the 9800, and the 9670 gives you an idea of what it will look like on a QWERTY. The above video is a hardware review, and after the jump is the software review. Be sure to check them both out.

Video Walkthrough of BlackBerry OS 6 on a 9670 Clamshell

Comments

The BlackBerry 9670 clamshell now has a leaked video up on YouTube but sadly the audio has been taken out. The walkthrough shows some of the inner workings of OS 6 and the navigation looks very smooth. The rubberband effect is present throughout the menus, much like the experience you get on the Storm2. As ugly as the device seemed in pictures, it actually looks pretty good in-hand. Some of the applications we get to see in action include BBM 5.0.1.5, Facebook, Twitter, Viigo and App World, which we’re all hoping comes preloaded. If the video gets taken down we have some screenshots after the jump.

BlackBerryCool Roundup for Week of May 3rd

Comments

This was a decent week in the BlackBerry world as we’ve got a nice mix of new apps, leaks and news. Probably the hottest topic right now is the BlackBerry tablet or “BlackPad”. The tablet could be a huge success if RIM takes an enterprise approach, as it’s a market that no other smartphone can dominate in the way that RIM can. It would be interesting to see how the BlackBerry tablet form factor transforms the way large organizations do business. This week we also some more pictures of the upcoming BlackBerry slider and clamshell. The slider form factor looks really interesting, especially if it’s a touchscreen and QWERTY hybrid. The clamshell doesn’t seem to be a big hit with readers, as we get some really negative comments each time it’s mentioned. Hit the jump to get caught up on a week in BlackBerry.
