BlackBerry 8220 spec sheet leaked

Comments

Confidential BlackBerry Kickstart

If you’re looking for all the hard details on the BlackBerry 8220, a specification sheet has been let out of the bag that shows all the important info. It’s from back in February when the device was still the BlackBerry Kickstart, so some of the smaller details may have changed, but on the whole, this is about as solid as details for the flip BlackBerry will get before launch on T-Mobile and Rogers sometime this September. Nothing particularly new, but if you’re looking to know something in particular about the device, this doc should have it. In broad strokes, the BlackBerry 8220 will be packing a microUSB slot, externally-accessible microSD slot, 128 MB of flash memory, 2.0 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi b and g, quad-band GSM, 128 x 160 external display and a 240 x 320 internal screen.

Duracell releases BlackBerry portable battery chargers

Comments

Duracell PowerSource Mini

Two chargers were launched by Duracell today, offering BlackBerry users a full hour’s worth of talk time and the equivalent in data use. The PowerSource Mini is packing two miniUSB ports, in case you’ve got a RAZR that needs charging at the same time, and can charge its lithium-ion battery through your car, AC outlet, or even your computer. It’s a little bulkier than your standard charging cord, but hey, for an extra charge on the go, I think I could make some room. Duracell also kicked off My Pocket Charger which runs on two double-AAs rather than a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, and has the added benefit of supporting microUSB in case you plan on picking up the BlackBerry Kickstart or BlackBerry Javelin whenever they come out. If you’re interested, the PowerSource Mini is going for $49.99 and the Pocket Charger for a more affordable $14.99.

Fresh BlackBerry Javelin pictures reveal microUSB slot?

BlackBerry Javelin

There’s not much new to the latest pictures of the unreleased BlackBerry Javelin, aside from a look under the hood, but it’s still good to see the girl in action. These shots are accompanied by a healthy dose of speculation that it will be supporting micro USB slot rather than the mini USB connector we all know and love. Considering the Javelin is aiming to be as sleek and fit as possible, I could understand the desire to squeeze it down a notch, but it’s still a pain for accessory providers. I actually used the same cord for my BlackBerry as I did for my MP3 player for awhile, which was especially handy, but for your everyday user, just using the prepackaged cable shouldn’t be too much of an inconvenience.
