PeekaWho for BlackBerry

BlackBerry Nation, assemble! The fine gents over at Smrtguard are in need of your help. It turns out that they’re looking to translate their award-winning software PeekaWho into Italian and German, but are without the requisite skills (i.e. being literate in Italian and German)!

Are there any Italian or German-speaking members of the BlackBerry Nation willing to lend a helping hand? If so, Smrtguard is willing to throw in a free copy of PeekaWho and FollowUp! for your BlackBerry, as well as a lifetime supply of appreciation.

All those interested can email support|AT|smrtguard|dot|com with the heading ‘Translate’.

BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 lands first on TIM

Comments

First the BlackBerry Storm video, now this: those Italians get to have all the fun! That’s right, it appears that Italian carrier TIM is the first to release the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220, RIM’s first flip phone. Priced at 269€ (approx. $370 USD), the Pearl Flip should appeal to those fashionable Italians with its clean lines and black coloring. You can see the full specs (in Italian!) after the jump.

Thanks for the tip, Joe!

New BlackBerry Storm video, Verizon 9530 ‘leak’

Comment

At this point, no one should be surprised that this Italian promotional video of the BlackBerry Storm has appeared on the Internet. However, what is surprising is just how sexy and chic the device comes across: it certainly looks as though the Storm can give any other handset a run for its money.

In addition to the exciting video above, CrackBerry.com has posted the latest ‘leaked’ information from the latest Verizon internal ‘Talking Up a Storm’ email mailout. You can read the mailout, which deals with the BlackBerry Storms’ global features after the jump.

BlackBerry Unite! available internationally

Comment

Previously available in only North America, BlackBerry Unite! has now been localized for all around the globe. Central American, Italian, German, French, Asia Pacific and Spanish versions of the software is available for small groups of up to 5 to share media, contacts, and take care of management tasks. There are plenty of small and medium businesses out there that could use some extra functionality from their BlackBerrys, and when the software is free, it’s hard to go wrong.

OS 4.5 available from Orange UK

Comments

OrangeThe latest BlackBerry operating system has been making the rounds by way of private beta builds for awhile now, but it looks like a few carriers are starting to make them publicly available, including Orange UK for the BlackBerry 8120 and BlackBerry 8320, as well as TIM Italy for the 8100, 8300 and 8310. Odds are these will work hunky-dory for your own device, so feel free to give ‘em a shot and get on fresh goodies like HTML e-mail viewing (if your BIS supports it), remote e-mail lookup, native document viewing, and plenty more.

BlackBerry Bold coming to Italy

Comments

AT&T BlackBerry 9000Stefano’s all a-twitter after hearing that TIM will be carrying the BlackBerry 9000 on the second week of July, and going for 450/500€. Vodafone was one of the earliest carriers that we had heard was going to carry the newest BlackBerry, so the fact that the Bold is coming to Europe isn’t so much a surprise, but it does give credence to other supposed release dates. It sounds like this is going to be a worldwide release in a very closely packed timeframe. This is great, since generally we’ve seen devices released at one end of the pond and then take their sweet time swimming over to the other (heck, Rogers still hasn’t got the 8120 yet, and it was released last fall).

Italian 8110 Launch Party on the 30th

Comment

Stefano at BBWorld has been cordially invited to RIM and Vodafone’s party for the Italian launch of the BlackBerry 8110, happening on January 30th. The GPS-enabled Pearl’s launch was predicted by Jibi last November, and will be available in 3 colors - red, blue, and grey - and also features a 2 megapixel camera. There’s no word yet on when the rest of the world will get their hot little hands on it, but if past experience with the 8120 release is any indicator, the GPS Pearl will spread to other European countries pretty quickly and North America will get it… well, sooner or later.

BlackBerry 8120 lands in Italy

Comments

While we’ve been mostly buzzing about the BlackBerry 8130 lately, the 8120 with Wi-Fi is starting to make the rounds in Europe. Telecom Italia Mobile announced yesterday their release of the BlackBerry 8120 in Italy, with all of the Wi-Fi, 2mpx camera, video capture, external microSD slot, 3.5 mm headphone jack, and quad-band GSM you can handle. TIM will be the exclusive carrier of this beauty in Italy until December, but no word on pricing just yet. Their 8100 is running 299 €, so you can expect to pay something in that range. The last we really heard of the 8120 was of its initial launch in Spain, and taking a look at its European profile, the Pearl hasn’t reached anywhere else just yet. It’s only been two weeks mind you, so let’s hold out for some more releases before Christmas. We got any Italian readers looking to grab one of these?
