BlackBerry Storm vs. BlackBerry Bold Camera


As a proponent of ‘blogging from your BlackBerry’, one of the features of my BlackBerry Bold that really lets me down is the camera. Even though it is vastly superior to previous BlackBerry models, it’s not quite web-tech blog quality. Obviously, one of the first things I did when I sat down with the Telus BlackBerry Storm was a camera comparison.

As you can see, the BlackBerry Storm easily outperforms the Bold’s camera. Not only does it have 3.2Mpx to the BlackBerry Bold’s 2.oMpx, but autofocus capability (which is great considering my infamous shaky hand syndrome) and a much broader dynamic color and light range. This picture was also taken in low-light conditions, something the Bold has never been too good at, but the Storm doesn’t disappoint.

You can see each individual image after the jump for a more thorough comparison. Both pictures were taken on ‘superfine’ quality with flash set to ‘auto’.

Official BlackBerry OS 4.6 features


OS 4.6

Curious to know what exactly you’re missing with the BlackBerry Bold? RIM’s Knowledge Base is now listing the official new features in device software 4.6. Nothing hugely new (that Q hotkey for the vibrate profile is nice to know, and switching to Bluetooth headset mid-call is nifty), but now we’ve got all the updates in one spot.

BlackBerry Thunder due October 8th. with Rhapsody?


BlackBerry Thunder with Rhapsody

The mid-October ballpark release for the Verizon BlackBerry Thunder has been narrowed down to the 8th., but as with any rumour, take it with a grain of salt… What’s true now might not be in two months. The same sources are also claiming that the Thunder will be packing a 3.2 megapixel camera and over-the-air Rhapsody downloads. We had heard about carrier music stores integrated with the BlackBerry 9500’s music player, and now we’ve got a name to look forward to. Rhapsody is pretty popular, second to iTunes and maybe Amazon… how many more online music outlets will plug into the BlackBerry Thunder? As for the camera, I expressed plenty of concern about its quality in last week’s podcast, so colour me relieved.

More BlackBerry Thunder pictures emerge


BlackBerry Thunder media player

We’ve got some more shiny pictures of the BlackBerry Thunder in action. Here you can check out how the media player will look while playing music, complete with title, artist and album art. There’s also a better look at the camera functions in both landscape and portrait modes. Flash, zoom, cropping, video and e-mail functions are all built into the main interface and a glimpse at what we can expect from OS 4.7. There are still plenty of pictures of the BlackBerry Thunder’s media player and virtual keypad out there, if you’re looking for more pics to slobber over.

New app mutes your camera


Old Camera Ever feel like your BlackBerry’s camera is a bit dated when it still makes a shutter noise when you take a picture? BerryAnnoying just launched recently, so you can take your pictures without the annoying sound. Sure, RIM should have functions like that already built in, but plenty of software developers get by on that premise.
