AT&T BlackBerry Bold 9800 slider arriving June to take on iPhone HD?

RIM's BlackBerry Bold 9800 slider looks to be going head to head with the fourth-generation iPhone HD this coming June, with BGR hearing from several of their sources at the company that AT&T are ramping up for a release of the touchscreen QWERTY handset in the same month as Apple's next phone is expected to arrive.  In fact, they're sounding pretty gung-ho about the launch; AT&T have apparently ordered more than 1,000,000 units.

Don’t worry, Kim Kardashian, BlackBerry is coming for you

Don’t worry, Kim Kardashian, BlackBerry is coming for you

BlackBerry boss John Chen has promised an old-school handset for QWERTY lovers, penning an open-letter to fans of the form-factor in which he expresses his hopes that the BlackBerry Classic will fit the bill. The letter, published on the official BlackBerry blog, addresses stalwart users by conceding that "if it ain’t broke don’t fix it," just as many BlackBerry Bold users - including, somewhat bizarrely, reality TV star Kim Kardashian-West as we found out this week - have been shouting at the struggling Canadian firm for some time.

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

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.
