Sprint launches BlackBerry Curve 8350i sans camera

Comments

blackberry curve sans camera

Many government and enterprise individuals don’t want cameras on their mobile devices for security concerns. In response to a small yet existent demand for a BlackBerry sans camera, Sprint is releasing the 8350i, a BlackBerry Curve without the 2mp camera. The pricing on the 8350i sans-camera is lined up exactly with the older version that includes a camera, at $149.99 after $100 mail-in rebate and a 2-year contract.

Other unique features for this BlackBerry include Nextel Direct Connect service which lets Curve 8350i users instantly connect with other Sprint customers with PPT devices using its iDEN network. The device is also significantly more bulky than its other Curve 83xx siblings, due in part to its additional internal components; the 8350i packs both GPS and Wi-Fi, something that can’t be said about any of the other 83xx series devices. This Curve does include WiFi so they haven’t stripped anything but the camera which is great.

BeamBerry updated

Comments

BeamBerryThe document viewer BeamBerry got updated to version 2.0 over the weekend. BeamBerry is a cool little app that lets you view, print and store PDF, Word, PPT, XLS, RTF and ZIP files on your BlackBerry. Pretty handy stuff, there. The big changes in the new version?

“The key new feature introduced in this release is the ability for users to attach documents that they have stored on BeamDisk to new e-mails. The release also includes numerous improvements in the areas of performance, reliability and security, and contains fixes for several bugs discovered in previous versions (e.g. various problems with BeamPrint).”

It’s still in beta, but I reckon these guys will be going commercial pretty soon. Better get in on the free software while you can.
