Bell to also get the BlackBerry Storm?


bell blackberry storm

WOW Huge news coming via BlackBerry Cool commentor LouTreize who has tipped us off that the BlackBerry Storm will be coming to Bell as well in Canada! Read what he has to say below:

Now these!

“Balsillie said the new touchscreen BlackBerry will also be available in Canada on Bell (TSX:BCE) and Telus (TSX:T) networks later this fall.”

RIM will be launching the device with partner carriers Verizon Communications Inc. in the U.S. and Vodafone Group PLC in Europe. Mr. Balsillie said BCE Inc. and Telus Corp. will be selling the Storm by the end of the year.

The question here is whether or not Balsillie/mainstream press screwed up, or Bell is really slow with their PR… If someone from Bell would like to drop us a line, it would be greatly appreciated!!

Seriously, I’m expecting the UPS guy to show up with a Storm at my house any minute now. What other news could possibly go up tonight?


BlackBerry 4.7 JDE now available! (updated)

UPDATE: In my rush to get this up last night, I forgot to tell you that RIM has started releasing device simulators separate from the JDE again. You can find the OS 4.7 and 7.6 device simulators at the link below:

OS 4.7 and 4.6 device simulator

Our good friend SingStar just tipped us off to the fact that the BlackBerry OS 4.7 JDE and simulator are now available! Hit the link below!

BlackBerry OS 4.7 JDE

My Man SingStar wanted me to point out that the 4.7 JDE features a really slick accelerometer API, so I’m hoping to see some BlackBerry software that rivals anything the iPhone 3G has done!
