RIM and Digital China Launch the BlackBerry Curve 8910 in China

Comments

RIM has launched the BlackBerry Curve 8910 in China in partnership with Digital China. We have seen lots of pics of the 8910 in the past with a trackpad, but a picture from the press event reveals the device with a trackball. Some weeks ago, we saw a spec sheet saying that trackball versus trackpad navigation was yet to be decided, and it seems they’ve gone with the trackball decision. It could be that a trackball lowers the price point, which is crucial for selling devices in a developing nation. Whatever the reason, it’s good to see BlackBerry hitting the Chinese market and it will be interesting to see how well they sell. There are a lot of gray market ripoffs in China, but the real deal is sure to be a success.

BlackBerry Atlas aka Harpoon 8910 OS 5.0.1.205 File Leaked

Today we saw a screenshot of a desktop install of OS 5.0.1.205 and BBCool reader apol was good enough to provide a link to the OS file. I opened the file but I’m not really sure how to proceed. As you can see from the above screenshot, it says OS 5.2.0.43 and I’m sure if I was able to get past the prompt “Connecting to Bootrom” it would show the app version, but sadly my technical skills only take me this far. With the link to the OS file, maybe you can have more luck. It would be great if this was of value to someone in the hybrid OS community, and we could see what features are in 5.0.1.205.

Download OS 5.0.1.205 for the BlackBerry 8910.

David of CB made an interesting discovery that the BlackBerry 8910 was accidentally unveiled at CES, and was only discovered well after CES had finished. After reviewing pictures from the CaseMate booth, it became clear that CaseMate had labeled a Curve 8910 as a Bold 9700. The two look very similar and it’s the lack of frets that really gives it away.

New BlackBerry Spotted: the BlackBerry Curve 8910

BlackBerry Curve 8910

The guys at Unwired View caught the Bluetooth SIG certification for the BlackBerry 8910 and Ronen at BerryReview managed to score a pic of the device. While there are few details circulating about the BlackBerry Curve 8910, we can only guess that it will be a minor update to the 8900 series for foreign markets. It could be the CDMA version and all we really know for sure is that it has the standard trackpad, something I would have loved on my 8900. We’ll start seeing more details emerge soon.
