    A leaked ROM introduced us to wireless hotspot support on the BlackBerry Bold 9900 last month. Since then, we've seen that feature make its way into official releases and start to go out to phones. The latest carrier to bring the release to its RIM devices is Sprint, which has started distribution of BlackBerry OS 7.1 for the Bold 9930 and Torch 9850. It almost feels like wireless internet sharing should be a standard feature in smartphone at this point in time, but sure enough, the past several months have seen the feature enabled via update in Windows Phone handsets, and now the latest ...

    Over the last few days, we've seen lots of pics and video of upcoming BlackBerry handsets leak out, giving us an early view at some of the most anticipated additions to RIM's lineup. The trend continues through today, with the BlackBerry Bold 9790 posing for a series of its own pictures. It's not clear right now just how the 9790 will fit in with the rest of RIM's upcoming smartphones. According to the source that provided the phone's images, the 9790 performs significantly better than current models of its lineage, like the Bold 9780. With the upcoming Bold 9900 and 9930 as the new ...

    The upcoming BlackBerry Bold Touch, also known as the 9930 or Dakota, has been caught on video in the wild. The phone, which features a brawny 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8655 CPU with 768MB of RAM, combines the great keyboard of the Bold series of devices with the touch-friendly interface of BlackBerry OS 6.1. Slated for a release in Q2, a CDMA version of the Bold Touch has been caught on video, showing off some pretty snappy performance in launching apps and moving around the operating system. If you can't get enough of the Bold Touch, check out the tutorial videos. Source: N4BB

    If you've been following our BlackBerry coverage you've probably seen the recent leaked commercials of the Bold Touch and the Monza as well as well as the Curve Touch slated for a June or July release. According to two of BGR's sources, RIM will only be unveiling one BlackBerry with the occasion of its upcoming BlackBerry World event. That BlackBerry is believed to be the BlackBerry Bold Touch (or whatever name it will be wearing) and it looks like the decision was one of last moment. This is currently to be filed under the "R" category but if the information turns out to be true, we'll ...

    RIM's BlackBerry Bold 9780 just landed at T-Mobile last week, but AT&T is not wasting any time getting its hands on the latest Bold as well. The first video of an AT&T-badged 9780 has surfaced, hinting that it won't be long at all before the carrier official kicks off sales. T-Mobile first put the 9780 up on its site on November 17, just as predicted. The newest addition to the Bold lineup, the 9780 carries a notable upgrade to BlackBerry OS 6 along with a higher-resolution camera and 512MB RAM - double the 9700's memory. The lucky owner of this AT&T 9780 has put the handset up for sale on ...

    The BlackBerry Bold 9900 was recently popping up on Vodafone's database and there was enough room for speculations and fantasizing about what it would look like. Now there are some new bits of info which are to be classified under the Rumor category. First of all, the BlackBerry 9900 will allegedly be a touch-screen enabled BlackBerry Bold 9000. Adding this to the already popular form factor will somehow generate the idea that this device, codenamed BlackBerry Montana - a revived Magnum/Dakota project - will inherit the popularity and success of the Bold 9000. Nothing more is known about ...

    RIM's rumored BlackBerry 9900 phone may be one step closer to making its debut, if the screenshots leaked from a German Vodafone database are legit. While they don't reveal anything new about the phone itself, the presence of a "9900BB battery cover" in the list strongly suggests that there's a soon-to-materialize 9900 phone to go along with it. The 9900's layout and features have been the stuff of great debate since the phone first showed up on BB enthusiast radar. Some are expecting a Bold-like design with a non-slider keyboard and new touchscreen input, while other rumors point to a ...

    BlackBerry operating system leaks are nothing unique -- they happen nearly every day, in fact -- but most are just minor version bumps, i.e. 5.0.0.112 to 5.0.0.250. But when RIM's flagship BlackBerry Bold 9700 gets an early taste of OS 6, well, that's something worth reporting. We'd heard back in November that this optical trackpad-equipped candybar handset was in the process of undergoing OS 6 testing on T-Mobile (it's also sold by AT&T), but as was the case back then, no official timetable has been given for the official rollout. Besides tweaking the UI and simplifying initial setup, OS ...

    RIM's next version of the BlackBerry Bold, the Bold 9780, may begin selling at T-Mobile starting on November 17th, according to an image posted by TmoNews. Very similar in appearance to the Bold 9700 -- save for a new black bezel -- the unannounced Bold 9780 supposedly offers mostly internal upgrades, most significant being the OS 6 operating system and 512MB of RAM required for it to run smoothly. The other major spec bump to this 624MHz, HVGA device comes to its camera sensor, which has been swapped out with a five-megapixel number. While it's not clear what the subsidized price will be ...

    If you're a Rogers customer and an Android enthusiast, this holiday season is going to really make you happy! According to reports, Rogers is adding two power-house Android phones to their lineup -- and a Blackberry. First up is the Dell Streak, a 5-inch Android-powered tablet -- that is also a phone. If you don't feel like holding a enormous phone to your ear, Rogers is also adding the Samsung Captivate to their lineup. And, just in case you're a Blackberry fan, Rogers is also adding the Blackberry Bold to their line up, too. Sources: Mobile Syrup1, 2; Unwired View

    Soon, BlackBerry Torch owners won't be the only ones to enjoy the BlackBerry 6 operating system which includes improvements like universal search, a webkit-based browser, better social network integration, and a redesigned interface. A leaked advertisement from Verizon shows them as hosting a "interactive" launch of BlackBerry 6, which that means in the not too distant future, the software upgrade will be made available for Verizon's newest BlackBerry devices (like the Curve 3G, for which BlackBerry 6 is already available if you're taking the unofficial route).
