Rumor has it that the BlackBerry Bold 9780 is hitting TELUS October 21st and they’ll be phasing out the 9700. It’s hard to keep up with RIM in terms of device launches. Just when you hear that the 9700 will be getting BlackBerry 6, the leaks start to come out about an slight incremental improvement to the product line. The Bold 9780 will likely feature:

  • 512MB RAM
  • 5MP camera with LED flash
  • 2.4-inch display (resolution of 480×360)
  • WiFi and GPS
  • 624 MHz processor
  • BlackBerry 6 with the WebKit browser

Expect a review as soon as this device has launched.

Considering the last two partnerships happened back in March, the launch on Rogers took a little longer than expected. Zoompass is a joint venture with all the major Canadian carriers, so this Rogers announcement nearly completes the rollout plan and from now on we’ll hopefully see some cool updates. Even though the announcement was sent out, there doesn’t seem to be any mention of a preload of the Zoompass App.

The BlackBerry Torch has been in the office for a couple of weeks now and we’ve had a long time to think about some of the intricacies of using this device for both business and pleasure. The Torch is the first BlackBerry to feature BlackBerry 6, a touchscreen and a QWERTY keyboard and RIM employees have been quoted saying it’s the best BlackBerry to date. Touchscreen devices are likely a sensitive issue with RIM as the company has had a lot of negative press over the BlackBerry Storm. The Torch has a touchscreen that has dropped the infamous SurePress technology and there is a lot of buzz about this device given the heated consumer smartphone competition. Have these improvements made it the best BlackBerry to date? Lets take a long, hard look at this device (that’s what she said).

This may be an obvious reminder for some but if you’re looking to get your BlackBerry Torch unlocked, make sure your carrier has announced the device because otherwise they may not have the proper WebKit browser service books.
