Comment

Pixelated is a simple puzzle game that involves changing pixel colors in order to create a single solid color on the screen. The ultimate goal of the game is to clear the screen in as few moves as possible. Pixelated also features a cool achievement system, that encourages you to get perfect scores on every level.

Pixelated and Pixelated Plus have both been upgraded to version 2.1 adding support for the new BlackBerry Pearl 9100 and 9105. This version also adds an internal link for email support, as well as a few bugfixes.

WES 2010: Solutions Showcase Featuring the BlackBerry 9100, 9105 and 9650

Comments

I’m here at WES 2010 and as you know two new devices were launched today. RIM has set up a solutions showcase to show off the new devices and accessories, and we’ve got some pictures and impressions to show off.

The Pearl colors and accessories had them looking more like consumer electronics than smartphones. Don’t be fooled though, under the hood of the 91XX series are chipsets and memory of a high-end BlackBerry.

The new Pearl device colors look like some of the cutest devices I have ever seen RIM put out. The red gradient, and magenta colors really stand out among all the colorful leather cases and rubber skins. There’s a new leather case that features a built-in mirror that would go well with any modern purse or bag. Some were just skins while others also integrated hard plastics, not unlike the silver edges around the 9650/9700 series. These hard plastics are specifically placed in the impact zones around the edges of the device. For a company that has released a lot of devices meant to look like fierce sports cars, they have shifted gears and made something totally unexpected: purse-candy.

BlackBerryCool is here at WES 2010 and Matt Cameron and I are representing the site. The first device I’ve used while here is the BlackBerry Pearl 3G, and I thought I would put together some impressions and pics for everyone.

With the BlackBerry Pearl 3G in my hands, the first thing I’ve noticed is that the delete key is in the bottom left corner, where I assumed the shift button was. This isn’t a major difference; just the first thing I noticed.

BlackBerry Pearl 9100 Stratus Comes with T9 Style Keyboard

Comments


The updated Pearl 9100 has been showing up with a wide variety of keyboard styles. First, it was a SureType keyboard, then a small QWERTY, and now we’re seeing it in a T9 style. Currently, we don’t know much about the BlackBerry 9105, except that it’s rumored to be hitting the European market and Fido. The European market rumor makes a lot of sense as the device has a really European, SMS-centric look to it. Maybe the keyboard stylings are all designated for various carriers and what they believe will sell best. I’m thinking full QWERTY for Verizon, SureType for Fido, and T9 for Europe. We can expect the release date of this phone around the May/June time frame.
