Verizon Will Use FiOS TV to Stream Live TV to iPad, Video-on-Demand to Other Devices

Verizon Will Use FiOS TV to Stream Live TV to iPad, Video-on-Demand to Other Devices

The rumors about Verizon releasing an HTC manufactured, Google Chrome OS-toting tablet may be true (or not), but that's not going to stop the largest wireless carrier in the United States from issuing services for the competition, either. After all, that just means more money for them. At a press conference on Wednesday, Verizon showed off what it would look like if streaming TV and video-on-demand was served up to the iPad, thanks to FiOS TV.

BlackBerry slider: touchscreen, WiFi-N & HSPA?

BlackBerry slider: touchscreen, WiFi-N & HSPA?

The talk of a BlackBerry slider smartphone continues to bubble, and BGR's sources reckon they have some fresh information on the matter.  The in-development device is apparently a portrait-orientation slider, more similar to the Palm Pre in form-factor than it is to the more common side-sliding QWERTY handsets, and it's likely to have a touchscreen along with the pull-out 'board.  In fact the source reckons this particular BlackBerry is what the ongoing Magnum/Dakota project - which paired a keyboard, touchscreen and optical joystick - evolved into.

That would leave the unnamed new device as pretty much a BlackBerry Storm 9520 with a slide-up keyboard similar to the BlackBerry Bold.  Other specs include WiFi 802.11n - "100% support" insists the source - and a 360 x 480 display.  Software is expected to be BlackBerry OS 6.0, and - best of all - this isn't going to be a Verizon exclusive; RIM's first slider will be a GSM/HSPA device.

BlackBerry Storm2 Review

BlackBerry Storm2 Review

The original BlackBerry Storm failed to sweep through the smartphone sector in the way RIM had hoped it would, criticized for its frustrating SurePress touchscreen technology, glitchy firmware and - most damningly - not being all that hot at messaging. With the BlackBerry Storm2 9550, RIM claim to have not only addressed all of those elements but more, and so it's with the mildest of trepidation that we've been playing with the new smartphone. Breath of fresh air or an ill wind that blows no good? Read on for the SlashGear review.

BlackBerry Curve2 confirmed in Verizon leaked holiday line-up

BlackBerry Curve2 confirmed in Verizon leaked holiday line-up

Verizon's holiday line-up has leaked, and it includes not only a full page spread of the Android-based Motorola Droid but confirms the incoming Curve2, aka the WiFi enabled 85xx series BlackBerry Curve.  Already announced over at T-Mobile, there's no specific launch date attached to the CDMA Curve2, but we're hoping that its presence in a holiday guide indicates a release before the end of the year.

BlackBerry Storm OS 5.0 firmware officially released

BlackBerry Storm OS 5.0 firmware officially released

The long-awaited firmware update for the original Verizon BlackBerry Storm 9530 has arrived, and OS 5.0 brings with it the promise of greater stability, new flick-gestures in the Storm's browser, and other usability tweaks.  Early user feedback suggests that the new software makes the Storm a whole lot more usable, with noticeably reduced delay between application changes.

Vodafone BlackBerry Storm 2 9520 arrives October 26th in UK

Vodafone BlackBerry Storm 2 9520 arrives October 26th in UK

It's beginning to get a little ridiculous now: after Walt Mossberg reviews the BlackBerry Storm 2 ahead of any official confirmation by RIM themselves that the device actually exists, now Vodafone UK have announced that they'll be the first network to offer the second-generation touchscreen smartphone.  Available to preorder from today, and with deliveries set to begin on October 26th, the Vodafone Blackberry Storm 2 9520 is priced from free with a new plan costing £35/mo ($56) upwards.

BlackBerry Storm 2 gets the Mossberg review; RIM still tight-lipped

BlackBerry Storm 2 gets the Mossberg review; RIM still tight-lipped

We'll let you into a secret: embargoes are the janky, frustrating glue that keeps the tech business rolling, and it doesn't take much to bring everything crashing down.  Someone has obviously been fiddling with Walt Mossberg's clocks, as the AllThingsD writer and generally bearded-lovely has pushed out his review of not only the Motorola CLIQ - you can read our opinion on that phone here - but of the BlackBerry Storm 2.

The review comes on the heels of Verizon's CEO scooping RIM to their own Storm 2 announcement, as we discovered yesterday.  There's no way of knowing exactly whether Mossberg had special dispensation to publish early - it wouldn't be the first time he's had privileged access ahead of everyone else - but since we're still hungry for Storm 2 details we'll forgive him anyway.

BlackBerry Storm 2 9550 gets previewed: plenty of rough edges

BlackBerry Storm 2 9550 gets previewed: plenty of rough edges

Just how many pre-production BlackBerry Storm 2 9550 handsets are there out there, waiting to be previewed ahead of the touchscreen handset's release?  We don't know the answer to that, but phoneArena obviously have one since they've just pushed out a preview of their own.  In it, they praise the Storm 2 for its much improved keyboard, but scold it for its dodgy stability, poor camera performance and "gimmicky" SurePress.
