BlackBerry Tag promises NFC sharing in BB7

BlackBerry Tag promises NFC sharing in BB7

Never fear, Blackberry Tag isn't another fail-laced tablet or other device coming from RIM. Tag is a new tech that users of Blackberry smartphones will be able to use to trade and share data with other Blackberry users. Tag will be coming in BB7 and is the name of the NFC sharing tech RIM has been working on. It's worth noting that Tag is subject to network certifications. That would mean a chance that Tag is on some networks and not others.

BlackBerry R47 aka Knight aka “Porsche Proceeding” Leaked Details in Full [Video]

BlackBerry R47 aka Knight aka “Porsche Proceeding” Leaked Details in Full [Video]

What we know about the BlackBerry device you're about to see is that it could be one of several things: a prototype for the 9900/9930, a "luxury" version right along those same lines, or a complete knockoff made by a third party to appear to be an alternate-reality 9900. There are both photos of the outsides of the device, a teardown, and a video in the post below. One of the more interesting (and appearing to be quite likely) options on the plate is that, due to the font, letting, and bold singularity in the word "PROCEEDING" above BlackBerry on the phone, this phone may well have been designed and executed by auto group Porsche - high-cost sharp edges ahoy!

BlackBerry Torch 9810 Review

It's been more than a year since we reviewed the BlackBerry Torch 9800, RIM's hybrid touch/QWERTY slider, and while the company says the smartphone has gone on to be one of their more popular devices, we couldn't get past the underwhelming screen resolution and easily choked processor. Now, RIM has returned with the BlackBerry Torch 9810, with a faster CPU, more pixels and a copy of the BlackBerry 7 OS. Is it enough to flick the Torch onto full-beam? Check out the SlashGear review after the cut.

BlackBerry Torch 9850/9860 Review

BlackBerry Torch 9850/9860 Review

Mention all-touch and BlackBerry in the same sentence, and it's tough not to experience an involuntary Storm-shudder. RIM's belated answer to the iPhone failed to grab it the chunk of the touchscreen smartphone market it expected, and while the Storm 2 was an improvement, the company is yet to entirely convince when there's no physical keyboard. Third time lucky, perhaps, with the BlackBerry Torch 9850, a compact BlackBerry 7 smartphone (aka the Torch 9860, the only difference being CDMA/GSM connectivity) hoping to convince us that QWERTY-free doesn't mean zero appeal. Check out the SlashGear review after the cut.

BlackBerry Bold 9930 Review

BlackBerry Bold 9930 Review

RIM's on familiar ground with the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930. QWERTY candybars have made the company's reputation, and while the Torch series - whether slider or all-touch - may offer interesting variations on the theme, the Bold is where the Canadians will be judged. Now offering both a touchscreen and a physical keyboard, along with a speedy CPU and slimmed-down chassis, on paper this is arguably the best BlackBerry today. Read on for the full SlashGear review.
