TMN and RIM launch the BlackBerry Bold in Portugal


BlackBerry Bold

Coming straight from Lisbon, TMN and RIM jointly announced today the launch of the BlackBerry Bold in Portugal. Our Portuguese friends will love the Bold’s 3G network speed, Wi-FI capability and half-VGA screen. TMN’s launch of the BlackBerry Bold brings their total BlackBerry offering to three, with the BlackBerry Pearl 8110 and BlackBerry Curve 8310 also available.

No pricing information has been posted on TMN’s website, but I’ve included a link just in case I missed it (my Portuguese is a little rusty). Interested parties can also check out our exhaustive BlackBerry Bold review.

BlackBerry 8310 comes to Portugal


PortugalIn other international releases today, we’ve got the GPS-enabled BlackBerry 8310 coming to Portugal via Vodafone. It won’t take long for the 8310 to get all over Europe, considering rumors of an imminent UK release, and the initial German announcement. Of course, it’s pretty much standard that Europe gets all the shiny toys before us across the pond, just like it’s inevitable that the Orient will be doing crazier wireless things than, well, anybody else.

BlackBerry hits the skies


A-318OnAir just got their GSM equipment certified for airworthiness, meaning it won’t be long until European fliers will have something productive to do on those short flights. The European Aviation Safety Authority approved OnAir’s services after rigorous testing, and will soon be available on the Airbus A318 among others.

“The service will be launched on an Air France aircraft, followed by bmi and TAP (of Portugal) aircraft. All three airlines will run single aircraft commercial trials on Airbus aircraft, which will allow them to fine-tune their passenger communications offer and evaluate it before embarking on a fuller-scale deployment. The first fleet deployment of OnAir’s services will be on Ryanair’s Boeing 737 aircraft.”
