Taiwan Mobile giving away free BlackBerrys to enterprise

Comments

In order to rope in a few corporate contracts, Taiwan Mobile now has a promotion to give away the BlackBerry 8120, BlackBerry 8300, BlackBerry 8707 and BlackBerry 8700 to enterprise customers who are willing to sign up for a monthly NT$1,499 ($US 47.70) plan. Taiwan Mobile is aiming to crank up their enterprise activations tenfold before the end of the year, which, while ambitious, could very well happen with a promo this enticing. Australia’s having a similar promotion with the BlackBerry Bold, which will likely see a lot of success. If you’re in an enterprise in the neighbourhood, you can contact Taiwan Mobile here to get started.

BlackBerry Javelin comparison shots

BlackBerry Javelin comparison

While it might not be the cleanest picture in the world (you would want to see these pictures of the BlackBerry Javelin if you’re looking for clarity), this shot does give us a feel for the size of the BalckBerry Javelin versus the BlackBerry 8800 and BlackBerry 8300. As you can see, the BlackBerry Javelin is well smaller than the big ol’ 8800, and just about as big as the Curve. While the BlackBerry Javelin might not be packing 3G, its slim form factor, 480 x 360 screen, 3.2 megapixel camera and Curve-style keypad are winning a lot of people over already. Expect this one out around late November - maybe even before Christmas if the release date isn’t pushed back.

BlackBerrys to land in Vietnam in October

Comments

Ricepicker

Viettel will be bringing the BlackBerry 8700, BlackBerry 8800, BlackBerry 8100 and BlackBerry 8320 to Vietnam this October. The 4,000 devices on the way will be the first shipment Vietnam sees, and Veittel is lined up to be the sole distributer in the long run. We actually get quite a few Vietnamese readers on BBCool, so it’s good news for them. Mobifone is in a close race with Viettel for cellular subscribers, but an exclusive BlackBerry deal could be the tiebreaker that puts Viettel in the lead.

Du launches BlackBerry service in UAE

Comments

DuAnnounced back in back in May, Du’s BlackBerry service has finally gone live after government approval and is now available in the United Arab Emirates. There’s quite the BlackBerry lineup for Du, including the BlackBerry 8100 for AED 1,799.00, the BlackBerry 8300 for AED 1,880.00, the BlackBerry 8700 for AED 1,350.00 and the BlackBerry 8800 for AED 2,199.00. It’s a solid start for an inaugural launch and shows that Du is clearly throwing their chips in with RIM in order to take on the current leading carrier, Etisalat. It’ll be tough going, but we certainly know what it’s like in Canada to not have much in the way of competition.

OS 4.5 available from Orange UK

Comments

OrangeThe latest BlackBerry operating system has been making the rounds by way of private beta builds for awhile now, but it looks like a few carriers are starting to make them publicly available, including Orange UK for the BlackBerry 8120 and BlackBerry 8320, as well as TIM Italy for the 8100, 8300 and 8310. Odds are these will work hunky-dory for your own device, so feel free to give ‘em a shot and get on fresh goodies like HTML e-mail viewing (if your BIS supports it), remote e-mail lookup, native document viewing, and plenty more.

Whrrl is coming to BlackBerry! Wait, what is Whrrl?

Comments

Whrrl LogoHey, more LBS/Web 2.0 news. I’m beginning to notice a trend. How do I know that this Whrrl for BlackBerry announcement is Web 2.0 related? Well, it’s about ‘mobile social discovery’, ‘user generated content’, and they spell the name of their application without any vowels. Just a handy heads up for all you old school BlackBerry users who aren’t on Facebook yet.

That’s right, Pelago announced support today of their mobile social discovery service for BlackBerry Pearl and Curve devices. Whrrl combines mapping and micro-blogging technology for discovering and sharing local information on people, places, events and experiences. The application is free to download, but is only available right now to people in the U.S., so post a comment BlackBerry Nation and let us know what you think.

Whrrl can be downloaded at www.whrrl.com. Web 2.0, baby!

BlackBerry lands in Serbia

Comments

Mobile Telephony of Serbia, otherwise known as mt:s, is offering the phones with the help of Alcatel-Lucent, who have participated in the setup of many of RIM’s expansions.

Over 100 free BlackBerry themes for your 8100, 8300 and 8800

Comments

A theme for the BlackBerryBerryReview recently posted about Michael Smalls, a BlackBerry theme designer who has released over a hundred BlackBerry 8100, 8300, and 8800 themes for free. The design of the website leaves quite a lot to be desired, but the themes themselves are well done and there is a lot of variety. If none of the themes are entirely to your liking, you can even contact Smalls to have one personally designed for a $3-$10 fee depending on complexity. Fair warning: the site absolutely requires Internet Explorer on a PC to download the themes. There’s always Gemblock, who also does a lot of free themes.

Scanbuy announces BlackBerry compatability

Comments

Scanbuy has announced that their 2D barcode scanning app for cameraphones is now available for BlackBerry. Using their software, you can now take pictures of particular barcodes similar to those being worked into airports with your Pearl or Curve to access related content like music, pictures and information. They’ve already got a bunch of partners doing some pretty interesting things with the technology, such as the Paris Metro which delivers point of interest and transit information using the barcodes, and Codilink who’s using it to deliver and redeem coupons. There are a lot of great opportunities for this kind of stuff, that’s for sure.

BlackBerry 8300 launched in Uganda

Comment

RIM has announced the launch of the BlackBerry Curve 8300 in Uganda in conjunction with MTN, one of the largest telecom companies in that area. MTN will be offering two BlackBerry services in the area: Enterprise Server, which offers Lotus Domino, Microsoft Exchange, and Novell GroupWise integration; and Internet Service, which offers up to 10 POP3 or IMAP4 email servers including Gmail and Yahoo. RIM has been expanding all around the region, so this new release doesn’t come as much of a surprise.
