BlackBerry Storm 9570 project axed?

RIM are believed to have axed their upcoming BlackBerry Storm 9570 refresh, though it's unclear whether the Canadian company has frozen the Storm product line completely or just this one device.  According to BBLeaks source - who appears to be a software developer working on code for RIM - a recent missive from the company said they had "decided not to pursue this device further" and that they have "ended the program."

Motorola Stingray Tablet for Verizon Landing First Quarter 2011

Motorola Stingray Tablet for Verizon Landing First Quarter 2011

We're just about into the third quarter of 2010, which means that wireless carriers are getting ready to release one last salvo at the consumer. With the holiday shopping season upon us, there's no surprise here that Verizon would be gearing up to release a plethora of handsets before the end of the year. And, while there's plenty of big names being dropped, the main takeaway from the leak today, is that the Motorola Stingray tablet, which will feature Android 3.0 "Gingerbread," won't be making its presence known until after the holiday shopping season.

BlackBerry Storm 9570 Outed, Running BlackBerry 6 [Update]

BlackBerry Storm 9570 Outed, Running BlackBerry 6 [Update]

As anyone would expect, Research In Motion isn't working on just one phone at any given time. Despite the fact that the first image of the supposed BlackBerry Storm 3 just leaked a couple of days ago, our first image of what people are calling the BlackBerry Storm 2.5 have broken cover today. Featuring a model number 9570, this Storm model features many of the same form favor elements as its predecessor, but there's also plenty that RIM changed to make buyers interested.

Verizon Begins Offering Unlimited Data in Prepaid Fashion, 3G Smartphones Included

Verizon Begins Offering Unlimited Data in Prepaid Fashion, 3G Smartphones Included

Prepaid services have been around for awhile, but for the longest time they were never good enough to catch the attention of the average consumer. After all, there's a lot hanging on that contract-free plan. You not only miss out on minutes, but it used to be that you didn't even get the same reception as the customers who signed a contract. Furthermore, you had to buy the phone out-right, without that discounted price tag. Well, while you still have to buy the phone out-right, prepaid plans have certainly become more popular, and Verizon has just made it even more attractive with the announcement that unlimited prepaid plans are now available. Oh, and you can use a Droid X, too.

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

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.
