We have heard rumors that RIM will be releasing a 4G model of the BlackBerry PlayBook sometime soon. These 4G rumors have not been confirmed by any hard evidence, but it seems plausible enough. Now, N4BB has gotten some photographs of what is supposedly the BlackBerry PlayBook 4G. The device pictured in these photos look exactly like the current WiFi-only PlayBook, but with a few additions. In the image above you can see a SIM Card tray and in the one below the break there is a new menu option for “Mobile Network.” Read on past the break for the other photo and some more information on the PlayBook 4G.

There hasn’t been a lot of fanfare around the launch of BlackBerry Mobile Fusion. We heard about it a few times and RIM announced its launch the same time they launched BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0. We know that currently it is an extension of BES, it manages BlackBerry Smartphones and PlayBooks on the corporate network. Later this year, support for iOS and Android devices is also slated to launch with BlackBerry Mobile Fusion. Take a look at the video above to check out some of the current features and uses of Mobile Fusion for BlackBerry Smartphones and Tablets.

This is definitely some interesting news coming out of Canadian carrier, TELUS. Their internal inventory systems are showing the BlackBerry Torch 9860 and Curve 9380 going to end-of-life status by the end of April. The Torch 9860 is set for April 15th and the Curve 9380 is set for April 30th. Now, what exactly does this mean for these two devices? It most likely means that Telus won’t be ordering any more of these devices, so when they sell out, they’re gone for good. If you are looking to grab either of these BlackBerrys on Telus, get down there before the EOL date to make sure you can get one.

RIM has put out a release announcing that the BlackBerry Bold 9790 and Curve 9380 are both launching soon in the Caribbean. The BlackBerry Bold 9790 is the little brother of the Bold 9900, it features a 1GHz processor, 2.45″ capacitive touchscreen, and a 5 MP camera. The Bold 9790 is perfect for those that prefer a smaller and more compact device but don’t want to compromise on speed and performance.
The BlackBerry Curve 9380 is RIM’s first Curve offering to feature a full-touchscreen. The 9380 features XX GHz processor with a dedicated GPU, a 3.2′ touch display with 480 x 360 resolution, and the same 5 MP camera sensor found on all the latest BlackBerry devices.

If you thought that the last BlackBerry 7 device train had come and gone then think again. CrackBerry.com has dug up some interesting information essentially confirming two new BlackBerry Curve devices. There isn’t much information regarding what the devices will feature like what speed the CPU will run at, or if they’ll be touch based devices. But this is a step.
We’re hoping that RIM makes a statement regarding these two phones in the next few days while the BlackBerry Devcon is under way in Amsterdam. Keep it locked to TheBerryFix.com as this, and more stories emerge.

RIM has let us know that BlackBerry OS 7.0 and 7.1 devices are now officially certified for use by both the US and Canadian Governments. BlackBerry 7 has received FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard) 140-2 Certification from the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology). This top-level certification is required for secure communications by both the US and Canadian Governments and their agencies. This is more good news for RIM, as the security certifications for their BlackBerry 7 and QNX devices begin to pile up.

Just last week the BlackBerry world was shaken up by the announcement that Jim and Mike, RIMs Co-CEOs, would be stepping down from the world they created. But today we’ve got another little shake-up happening.
CrackBerry.com was able to get images of what appears to be one of the two BlackBerry 10 devices to launch this year. There isn’t too much known about this guy, other than it will run a 1.5 GHz Dual Core CPU, which is similar to the new PlayBook that should be launching this year, as well. We also know that the device will pack LTE in addition to HSPA+ for those not yet setup with the new, blazing-fast connection. So what do you think? Good, bad, or amazing!?! Let us know in the comments below.

We’ve been detailing all the information from the leaked batch of RIM slides device by device, but in this post we’re going to take a look at the big picture for RIM in 2012. What you see above is the device launch roadmap for RIM in 2012. Yes, I know the dates on the slides say 2013, but that’s because RIM likes to use fiscal quarters, which are a year ahead. Let’s take a look at what’s to come this year from RIM.
First, we’ll discuss what’s probably the most important thing on the slide. There’s a box in the top right corner of the slide that says “Device” and has the words “Next Gen OS” above it. Can you guess what that is? It’s the forst BlackBerry 10 device! The roadmap has it releasing in October or November, something that the rumor mill has been confirming for a while now. The next big device to look at is the BlackBerry PlayBook 3G+. This is a fully refreshed PlayBook with HSPA+ connectivity. This device is currently slated to launch between March and May of this year. Head past the break for more information on decoding the BlackBerry 2012 roadmap.

Another of the leaked slides from today shows off RIM’s White series of BlackBerry devices. It lists the current family of the Torch 9810, Bold 9900, and Curve 9360, alongside the upcoming additions to the family, the Bold 9790 and Curve 9380. The white option is a highly desired option that not only RIM is embracing, but many other manufacturers are, as well. If you’re a fan of White devices and you want a Bold 9790 or Curve 9380, then you may want to hold off till Q2 to get your hands on one.
