T-Mobile has finally announced the launch of the BlackBerry 8820, after a rather lengthy delay. The 8820 features both GPS and Wi-Fi capability, a rarity in BlackBerrys, and is available from T-Mobile’s store in a midnight blue finish. The colouring is also rare for an 8800-series, what with Verizon’s red 8830 being the only precedent. Now let’s see if T-Mobile can manage the same feat with the 8120.
Palm’s painful excuse for a smartphone accessory could be hitting shelves August 22nd. For those lucky souls who weren’t around for the announcement, the Foleo is set to be a new kind of companion device that pairs up with your handheld by Bluetooth, and basically gives you a full screen and keyboard. In short, it’s a crappy laptop that will cost you $499. Don’t mistake this post as actual interest in the Foleo; it is solely out of a sense of solemn civic duty to my dear readers that I report this. Honestly, this should be filed under “Humor”, not “Rumor”. Speaking of which, if you’d like to meet the poor sap who has to try to sell the damned thing, take a lookee over here.
