It seems as though carriers are holding back with new BlackBerry devices these days. While the BlackBerry Bold 9790 was meant for RIMs overseas markets that hasn’t stopped a few North American carriers from scooping this one up. Looks like Koodo Mobile is launching the Bold 9790 on their TAB system, which allows people to put up to $150 of their phone price on their contract. If you decided to put the full amount on your TAB you would be looking at paying $250 on your tab. Sadly those looking to but the phone outright will be out of luck as they’ve seemed to put the kibosh on that.
RIM is a company of choice, a company of flavor, and definitely a company of Curves, so it was no surprise when they announced the all new, all touch BlackBerry Curve 9380. The biggest question is, does this mid range touch screen BlackBerry compete against the likes of Android devices, or the iPhone 3Gs? Follow me after the break as I dive into the latest BlackBerry to join the Curve family.

It’s a well known fact that a lot of the new BlackBerry 7 devices have been equipped with the latest in NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, but you might be wandering how it will be implemented on your new BlackBerry. While we were in Waterloo (the birthplace of the BlackBerry) I had a chance to sit down and get a demo of the new NFC features that will be making their way into a BB7 OS update in the near future.
RIM is looking to equipped the new devices with the ability to send videos, photos, contacts and even add a BBM buddy through NFC tech, and the best part is that they’ve also enabled the use of Bluetooth as a bridge to make the whole process a lot quicker. Take a look at the video above and see it in action for your self.

While most of North Americans have been able to get their hands on a BlackBerry Bold 9900, there are still many countries around the world that have yet to see the new flagship phone. RIM and various carriers from Sweden have announced the availability of the device on Tele2, Telenor, TDC Sweden and 3. We should see these carriers rolling the device into their stores and online any day now. But in the mean time, if you feel like reading a good old Press Release that can be found after the break.
Stockholm, Sweden and Waterloo, ON – Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ: RIMM; TSX: RIM) today announced that the new BlackBerry® Bold™ 9900 smartphone is now available through four authorized carrier partners in Sweden: Tele2, Telenor, TDC Sweden and 3.
The BlackBerry Bold 9900 is the thinnest BlackBerry smartphone yet at only 10.5mm and the first to offer the perfect union of a high performance keyboard and touch display integrated within the iconic BlackBerry Bold design. The new BlackBerry Bold 9900 is also the first BlackBerry smartphone to include built-in support for NFC (Near Field Communications), a new technology that is enabling many new and exciting capabilities, including the ability to pair with NFC-enabled accessories or read SmartPoster tags with a simple tap of the smartphone.

It’s been a Bold 9790 hail storm these past few weeks with more than enough images making their way onto the web, also the love and hate for the new button style that has seemingly made their way onto this new QWERTY BlackBerry. BlackBerry Indonesia has place a holder on their site (above image) which seems to be none other than the BlackBerry Bold 9790, after all it has the same profile as the 9790 and it is on the official BlackBerry website. Heres to hoping we hear more about the new phones in the coming days.
AT&T promised and they delivered. The BlackBerry 7 rocking Bold 9900 is officially available at all locations that offer AT&T, including Best Buy locations, and if you’re wondering if the Bold 9900 is a device for you, check out our in-depth review of RIM’s latest flagship device.

What do we have here? It’s an in-store price insert for the BlackBerry Torch 2 9810 from a Rogers store. There’s not much more to say about the 9810 or this image besides the fact that it’s coming to Rogers and it should be coming very soon. We’ve all but confirmed that the US launch of BlackBerry 7 will be in August and it’s looking like Canada will launch in the same timeframe. Keep it here at TheBerryFix.com as we bring you all the latest rumors and official information on the upcoming BlackBerry OS 7 Smartphones.

Today looks like a great day for BlackBerry. There are awesome app updates, carrier device leaks, and maybe even some official device announcements from RIM. But besides all that, RIM has answered an oft-asked question and accidentally announced two new devices. The BlackBerry Torch 9810 and Torch 9850/9860 are now showing up in the compatible device section for some accessories on BlackBerry.com.
This appearance also ends the debate on whether the 9850/9860 would be branded as the Torch, Storm 3, or something else entirely. It looks like, as we have said many times before, the new slate-style BlackBerry will be a member of the Torch family. With RIM’s announcement about BlackBerry 7 Fan Nights coming today, we should be seeing more official confirmation and specs on those unannounced BlackBerry devices as the day rolls on.
