BlackBerry 9000Although now pulled, a BlackBerry 9000 was up on eBay just long enough for folks to grab some eye candy. A screenshot shows it’s running on OS 4.6, and that the model number is, in fact, 9000. Aside from that, we already know it’ll be running on a quicker processor and higher-res screen, and packing GPS, Wi-Fi and HSDPA, an externally-accessible microSD memory card slot, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Considering the rumors of a suggested retail price of around $900 when it gets released this summer makes you wonder how high the auction could have gone…

Yahoo! Go 3.0 beta released

Comments

Yahoo GoAnother bit of news out of the Consumer Electronics Show is the release of version 3 of Yahoo Go for BlackBerry is now available from go.yahoo.com. At first glance, it looks like Google-style software suite, but Yahoo’s bringing some pretty cool stuff to the table, including mobile widgets. Right now they’ve only got some for MySpace, MTV and soon eBay, but it still looks like a good platform with lots of growth in it. Still, Yahoo Go! looks more about getting extra features like e-mail and maps that BlackBerrys already have included. For more info on the new version of Yahoo! Go, take a look over here.

BlackBerry squeaks into top 10 eCommerce developments

Comments

Thumbs upBlackBerry has received tenth place in The Software & Information Industry Association’s Ten Most Significant eCommerce Developments of the Last Decade. Sure, Google took the numero uno spot, but go figure. It’s Google, for crying out loud. The fact that we can put BlackBerrys on the same list as eBay and Amazon in terms of economic significance, while not hugely surprising when you sit back and think about it, still puts the importance of these devices into perspective. Russ at ZDNet notes that you can experience everything on the list shy of iTunes and open standards HTML 4.0 on your BlackBerry, which is quite true. The number seven spot, Wi-Fi, will be coming soon enough. The announcement has this to say about our favourite little handheld:

The BlackBerry makes communication instantaneous, and mobile. A comprehensive communications device creates a new mobile business culture. Giving road warriors the freedom to move to any location and maintain connectivity increases cooperation and efficiency. By having the web in the palm of your hand, Internet connected devices enable ecommerce anywhere, anytime.

You have to wonder, though… what did BlackBerry nudge down to 11th. place?
