We now have two leaked commercials of the 9900 and the 9860 for you to devour. The Bold Touch (aka Dakota) shows off features of the BlackBerry OS 6.1 as well as a look at the smartphone itself while the Touch Monza video unveils more of the OS functionalities. Check them both out below and let us know if you’re excited about the upcoming models. The announcement can’t come soon [...]
An analyst from the Jefferies & Co. says that Research in Motion will indeed by launching the Storm 3 as the latest in the Storm franchise, contrary to any rumors that the device may have been cancelled. The new Storm 3, unlike its predecessors, is said to eschew the SurePress click screen and instead opt for a regular capacitive touchscreen, like that found on the new BlackBerry Torch. The device is said to be of similar thickness, but will come with more memory and BlackBerry 6 OS at its core. The Storm 3 is slated for a November launch.
Another interesting speculation [...]
Montana is rumored to be the codename for the and the device, or at least that’s what we think its name is, has surfaced on a YouTube video CrackBerry managed to save as the original uploader yanked it quickly after going public.
Specs are currently just rumors and according to them, the smartphone will feature a 1.2GHz processor, a 3.7-inch capacitive WVGA display, five-megapixel camera with 720p HD video capture, and 768MB RAM with 4GB storage capacity. The device is expected to run BlackBerry OS version 6.1 and it’s not likely at all that we’ll see any [...]
RIM may be preparing a hardware refresh for the BlackBerry Storm 2 9550, allegedly dubbed the BlackBerry 9570, although this device seems to be different than the rumored “Storm 3” we saw a few days ago. According to BlackBerry Leaks, which has posted both a purported image of the phone as well as a smattering of specs, the 9570 will pack 512MB of RAM, a five-megapixel camera, and — perhaps most importantly — BlackBerry’s all new OS 6. BGR is speculating that the refresh is necessary because OS 6 requires 512MB of RAM, meaning that the current crop of [...]
Another rumor has emerged to further confuse the issue of the BlackBerry Storm 3, with BlackBerry Leaks claiming to have received conflicting specs for this vaporous device from multiple sources. However, the Storm 3 being referred to by the site is not the Storm 3 9570 we just saw pop up in Verizon’s Cellebrite system — a.k.a. the Storm 2 OS 6 refresh — but supposedly that handset with capacitive buttons which surfaced back in September courtesy of Berry Review. The Storm 9570 was recently rumored to have been canceled, further muddying the situation.
So this [...]
There have been quite a few recent leaks of potential BlackBerry Storm 3 handset candidates. Today we seem to have some alleged clarification that the Blackberry Storm 3 will actually be the BlackBerry 9570.
A picture supposedly taken of the screen from a Verizon Cellebrite machine clearly shows the model 9570 followed by the words “Storm 3”. (A Cellebrite machine is used to swap contacts from an old phone to a new phone in-store, when buying a new handset).
The Blackberry 9570 looks like being an incremental upgrade to the Storm 2. From the information that [...]
New rumors on the BlackBerry Storm3 has it that the device will be a minor update from the BlackBerry Storm2. The third generation of the Storm franchise will have slightly improved specs and will include a mobile hotspot feature along with BlackBerry 6 operating system including the new Webkit browser, a first for RIM smartphones.
Among the improvements from the hardware side, the Storm3 packs a more modest 512 MB RAM–twice that of its predecessor–and a 5-megapixel camera, up from 3. With the BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider launching soon, we’ll have to see if [...]
Even more BlackBerry leaks today following the Dakota, Curve “Apollo,” and Torch 2, and BGR seems to have saved the best for the last: the BlackBerry Storm3. Actually, the full touchscreen device pictured above may not even be branded Storm, according to the report; Monaco and Monza are supposedly the codenames for foreign variation of the OS 6.1-powered handset. Looking nearly the same as the optical trackpad-equipped device we saw last September — and not like the 9570 Storm2 refresh also rumored to be in the works — this model is said to sport a 1.2GHz [...]
There hasn’t been a lot of news on what Verizon Wireless wants to do with its BlackBerry Storm franchise, which uses a SurePress touchscreen technology, requiring users to actually press in on the screen, like they would on a touchpad of a laptop. The devices in the Storm series have so far been met with mixed reviews, but it looks like RIM is planning on a storm revival with the Storm 3, a device that is said to be powered by a new OS that’s not quite the current BlackBerry OS nor is it the next-generation BlackBerry 6 OS. Additionally, the Storm 3 will be powered by [...]
It looks like Research in Motion is still working on their BlackBerry Storm franchise; after having released the Storm 2 last year, America’s leading smartphone maker will be following up with a Storm 3 later this year and a Storm 4 in 2011. The Storm series, in their tablet touchscreen form factor, will be competing with the yet to be released BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider, which uses a touchscreen that slides in portrait mold to reveal a keyboard.
The Storm 3 will be a multimedia and gaming device with RIM reportedly working with EA on bringing some gaming titles to the [...]
