The team at crackberry.com have found some evidence that the new pearl 9100 may be containing a wifi N receiver instead of the usually G. N will give BlackBerrys a faster and stronger Wifi connections which will come in handy with the new mobile web browser to hit in 2010. So lets cross our fingers and hope this is true.

On your Blackberry? To view the video from your mobile device click here

Just received my Telus BlackBerry Storm2 9550 today and I must say I have fallen back in love with the RIM touchscreen device. The new Storm is a complete overhaul and you can tell, the Storm2 is a great improvement but I dont think it’s were it needs to be to compete in the touchscreen market, There is one issue i have with this phone (and the last storm), why does in need to go in landscape in the home screen? I really dont need to have my icons in landscape. But hey, watch the video and decide for your self.

BlackBerry App World Now Open In Australia & New Zealand

blackberry app world 300x214 BlackBerry App World Now Open In Australia & New Zealand

Slowly but surely the BlackBerry App World is launching in more and more markets, with the latest being Australia and New Zealand. The App World launched about a year ago with mixed results from both the media and consumers, but fast forward about 12 months and we have a slightly more grown up App World now with thousands of apps and themes. With all the changes I can see why the countries that don’t have it yet are excited when they get App World. Take a look at the press release from RIM.

BlackBerry Press Release:

“BlackBerry App World makes it very easy for our customers to discover and download a wide variety of applications for their BlackBerry smartphone,” said Adele Beachley, Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand, Research In Motion. “BlackBerry App World provides a fantastic new resource and enhanced experience for customers and an equally exciting business opportunity for RIM’s partners.”

Canadian Government Says Ok To Wind

wirelesshome Canadian Government Says Ok To Wind

The past few months have been a long hard battle for the new Canadian cellular provider Wind. Wind, which is the operating name for Globalive has had a hard last few months because of a ruling by the CRTC saying that the company has to much foreign ownership. This new cellular provider was making claims that they would be competing with the big three Telus corp, BCE Bell mobility and Rogers communications, this is a bold statement but they have the coverage, rate plans and devices that could put them neck and neck.  Wind will be carrying a few of RIM’s flagship devices the Bold 9700 and Curve 8900 with unlimited voice and data plans to go with them. As of today December 11, 2009 the Canadian Government has ruled against the CRTC and is allowing Wind to enter the canadian cellular market immediately, though i feel they are to late for busy holiday season.
