BlackBerry Storm 9520 and Pearl Flip 82XX - Rogers 3G BlackBerry Blowout

Comment

While the rest of us were quietly enjoying the Holidays with our family, one lone blogger was out working the streets for the latest in BlackBerry leaks. My boy Troy Brown over at BlackBerry News has uncovered photos of two upcoming Rogers BlackBerry Releases: the BlackBerry Storm 9520 and the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 82xx.

Here’s what’s known about each device so far. Both will feature 3G HSDPA. The BlackBerry Storm 9520 will feature Wi-Fi and the Pearl Flip 82xx will feature asecondary video camera for video calling. Both will be coming to Fido as well. No word yet on eventual release dates, but it looks like we weren’t that far off previously. You can see more slides after the jump!

CSL launches the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 in Hong Kong

Comments

BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220

I have a friend or two living in Hong Kong, and when I ask them about the local smartphone culture (yes, I bother them with such things), they always tell me that Hong Kongers just loves themselves some flip phones. It makes sense, then, that CSL and RIM have teamed up to launch the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 in Hong Kong today.

“CSL has long been a carrier partner of RIM, bringing various BlackBerry smartphones to Hong Kong,” said Mr. Aenil Premji, Chief Marketing Officer of CSL. “With the launch of the BlackBerry Pearl Flip smartphone, we are happy to continue to work with RIM to bring more choice of BlackBerry models to customers.”

The BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 is now available at 1O1O centres and one2free shops for $3688 straight up. Those looking for more information can head to 1010’s website or the BlackBerry Pearl Flip page below.

GPS now unlock for Verizon BlackBerry 8130 and 8330 (BlackBerry Bytes)

27 Comments

A bunch of people have sent us emails that Verizon has now unlocked the GPS functionality for the BlackBerry 8130 and 8330. This will allow Verizon subscribers to finally use BlackBerry Maps (by selecting the ‘internal GPS’ option in your settings)! However, Google Maps will not work as Verizon deems it a ’security risk’.

You’re going to need OS 4.5 to experience GPS freedom on your Verizon BlackBerry. Thankfully, we have all the information you need to upgrade to OS 4.5 at the links below.

BlackBerry OS 4.5 now available from BlackBerry.com/Upgrades. No, seriously.

BlackBerry Curve the most popular U.S. handset in October?

Comments

The news on BlackBerry Cool has been a little glum today, so this item should be a welcome - and surprising - pick me up. AvianResearch has published a list ranking the 10 most popular handsets in the United States for the month of October. AvianResearch derives its ranking from the responses of 100 service representatives and store managers at retail stores of the four major U.S. wireless carriers. Which handset was at the top of the list? The BlackBerry Curve.

According to AvianResearch, the BlackBerry Curve has topped the list from May through October. In addition, the BlackBerry Pearl, which placed sixth during the month of October, was number one in April. With results like this, things can’t be all bad for RIM. You can see the entire list after the jump.

The Source offers Pearl 8220, Curve 8310 for $0, BlackBerry Bold for $99 (’Cool Deals)

Comments

I don’t know if this is in hope of invigorating slow holiday sales due to a stagnant economy, or if certain BlackBerrys aren’t selling so well, but the important part is that they’re cheap.

The Source by Circuit City currently has a Friends & Family promotion, which offers the BlackBerry Pearl 8220 and BlackBerry Curve 8310 for $0 with a 3-year contract and minimum $35 plan. In addition the BlackBerry Bold is being sold for $99 on a 3-year contract with a $45 minimum plan. Remember, this is the device that was being sold for $399 a few short months ago.

Nothing much else to say here, other than that it doesn’t pay to be an early adopter. Get ‘em while they’re cheap!
