BlackBerry Torch 9850/9860 Hands-On [Video]

Lingering memories - few of them good - about RIM's BlackBerry Storm series of smartphones left us understandably wary of the Torch 9850/9860, but first impressions are surprisingly good. The all-touch handset - bearing RIM's biggest resolution display to-date - is impressively thin (for a BlackBerry, at least) with a neatly curved profile that nestles well into the hand.

RIM speaks on user defections: Buy our new stuff

RIM speaks on user defections: Buy our new stuff

RIM has responded to allegations that a significant number of its enterprise customers plan to defect from the BlackBerry platform in 2012, suggesting that they're probably unhappy because they're not using the latest models from its range. The Canadian company has not had a chance to review the EMA findings - which discovered 30-percent of businesses with 10,000 or more BlackBerry users intend to ditch the platform next year - it said, but "would be interested in finding out" whether those questioned were using BlackBerry 7 phones on Enterprise Server v5.0.3.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 32 2011

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 32 2011

It's that time again; the SlashGear Week in Review is back. One of my favorite stories from last week was the LEGO DIY R2D2 robot. The robot was remote controlled and even the little dome turned making for a very cool project. The teen LulzSec hacker that was arrested in Britain recently was found to have details on hundreds of thousands of people on his computer. The exact number according to the police was 750,000 different personal records on people.

RIM and Microsoft strike up a licensing deal for exFAT

RIM and Microsoft strike up a licensing deal for exFAT

Struggling BlackBerry platform holder RIM announced today that it has reached a licensing deal with Microsoft, but instead of RIM licensing out its tech like CEO Thorsten Heins has suggested many times in the past, RIM is the one paying out the licensing fee this time around. The deal gives RIM access to Microsoft's Extended File Allocation Table (exFAT) technology, a system that allows for the easy transfer of large files between PCs and other devices like smartphones.

AT&T approached RIM for an iPhone competitor in 2010

AT&T approached RIM for an iPhone competitor in 2010

A new report is going around the claims AT&T approached BlackBerry maker RIM back in 2010 seeking a competitor to the iPhone. This is notable because in 2010 AT&T still had the iPhone exclusive. If the report is accurate, that would indicate that AT&T saw the writing on the wall and new it would be hard-pressed to be as successful as it had been in previous years once it lost iPhone exclusivity.

RIM pushes HTML5 apps amid Canada user exodus

RIM pushes HTML5 apps amid Canada user exodus

RIM has turned to courting HTML5-curious developers as a stopgap solution to slumping BlackBerry sales in Canada and elsewhere, arguing the case for universal webapps to counter coder apathy. BlackBerry marketshare in Canada - not RIM's biggest single market, but meaningful as it is the firm's home turf - has dipped below iPhone levels this week, hand in hand with decreasing levels of developer interest as BlackBerry 10's late 2012 launch looks unpalatably distant. That's prompted a charm offensive by RIM code champions, pushing HTML5 development as preferable to native code.

The company has seen the popularity of its smartphones with the average consumer and governmental agencies that for so long relied on the BlackBerry wane significantly.

RIM CEO blasts Android phones as “all the same”

RIM CEO Thorsten Heins may only have been in the big chair since Monday, but the new chief exec is already coming out swinging, blasting Android devices as "all the same" and rejecting suggestions that the struggling Canadian company should be sold off.

RIM again tipped to be selling out to Samsung

RIM again tipped to be selling out to Samsung

When the going gets tough, the tough sell out to Samsung, or at least that's what Research In Motion's investors seem to be hoping will happen now that BlackBerry is in a downward spiral the likes of which have never been seen in the mobile industry before. A source trusted by Jonathan Geller of BGR has reportedly tipped off some inner workings of the RIM team saying that amongst the many possible buyers looking into purchasing RIM outright, Samsung is the current front-runner. What on earth Samsung would do with a massive set of business users tapping away only because their bosses wont allow them to move over to Androids, it's not quite clear.
