Comments

RIM has released the latest version of the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet and this latest piece of hardware comes with a radio that supports LTE and HSPA+ networks. Other than the radio connectivity, there’s really not much separating this PlayBook from its predecessor.

BlackBerry Style 9670 Review: The First Clamshell, Full QWERTY BlackBerry

Comments

blackberry style 9670

The BlackBerry Style is official and has launched on most carriers for $99.99 on a 2 year contract (after a mail-in rebate). With TELUS, the Style will be $49.99 on a three year contract. The Style comes in steel gray and royal purple, as well as the standard black and features BlackBerry 6 out of the box.
