LG Enact Android slider keeps Verizon in the QWERTY business

LG Enact Android slider keeps Verizon in the QWERTY business

It's not as if the LG Enact was the last device on the planet to offer a full physical keyboard with Android software - though the most recent entry with Verizon was the BlackBerry Q10. This LG device brings a sliding front panel that reveals a full QWERTY keyboard much in the same way that the Motorola DROID 4 did back in February of 2012. There's also a near-identical device by the name of LG Mach that was released earlier this year - not that you'd need to know that if you're sticking with Verizon.

First QWERTY BlackBerry 10 in Dec tips RIM roadmap leak

First QWERTY BlackBerry 10 in Dec tips RIM roadmap leak

RIM's first QWERTY BlackBerry 10 handset won't arrive until December, according to the latest leaks from the ailing company, with a further keyboard-toting slider tipped for early 2013. After last week's twin PlayBook tidbits as well as news on new Curves, BGR's sources reckon the BlackBerry London will hit in September, but will be followed in December by a combo touch and QWERTY device running the BlackBerry 10 OS and slotting into the Bold series.

BlackBerry Milan axed as RIM focuses on BB10 and MWC showcase

BlackBerry Milan axed as RIM focuses on BB10 and MWC showcase

RIM has pared down its planned 2012 range even further, it's reported, canceling the upcoming BlackBerry Milan after carriers decided it was too similar to the existing BlackBerry Torch. That's no great loss, however; despite appearances suggesting it was a BlackBerry 10 device, the Milan was actually set to run BlackBerry 7, so BGR's sources claim. That leaves just one leaked device still in the pipeline. [Update: Seems news broke about the Milan cancellation even earlier - N4BB had the scoop on Tuesday]

BlackBerry Torch 9810 Review

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 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.

BlackBerry Torch 9810 4G smartphone headed to AT&T “soon”

BlackBerry Torch 9810 4G smartphone headed to AT&T “soon”

Today RIM rolled out the new BlackBerry Torch 9810 and our pal Chris has already had his geeky mitts on the smartphone. You can check out his hands on video here. In the US, the smartphone will be coming to the AT&T network and it is the first 4G Blackberry device ever. Granted it's not the real 4G LTE network the device operates on, but the HSPA+ network little better than 3G.

BlackBerry Torch 9810 Hands-On [Video]

BlackBerry Torch 9810 Hands-On [Video]

It's only really when the display on the new BlackBerry Torch 9810 lights up that you realize you're looking at a different phone to the original Torch. RIM's industrial design team looks to have taken a break with this new QWERTY/touch hybrid slider, leaving it little different to the first-gen model. Still, with the relatively low resolution display of the first Torch being one of our primary complaints, we can't really argue too much with 640 x 480 in comparison.
