**Update: CrackBerry has confirmed that these boxes do indeed contain the security display devices for BlackBerry PlayBook 4G LTE devices. Look for the launch sometime this week or next.
We had originally heard that the BlackBerry PlayBook 4G was slated for a Q4 2012 Launch and then we heard last week that date had been pushed up to July 31, 2012. Well, yesterday was July 31st and the day came and went without any PlayBook 4G launches. However, that doesn’t mean that the 4G PlayBook isn’t coming very soon. Select Rogers stores across Canada have been receiving display security packages marked “PlayBook Security.” This indicates that the stores should be getting the 4G PlayBook in sometime soon and we should see a launch in the coming weeks. We’ll let you know as soon as we hear more.

Rogers has snuck a little treat into App World for their BlackBerry customers. The wireless carrier has teamed up with RIM to provide 6 months of BBM Music to their subscribers for free. All you have to do is download BBM Music to your BlackBerry any time between now and March 30th and Rogers will foot the bill for your first 6 months. There are; however, a few restrictions. The free 6 month offer is only available to Rogers customers and you must either be a new or trial member, if you’re already paying for BBM Music, you’re not eligible for the free 6 month trial. This looks like an attempt by both RIM and Rogers to drum up interest in BBM Music, and it wouldn’t surprise us here at TheBerryFix if other carriers jumped on with similar offers.

As we await the official announcement of the BlackBerry Bold 9790 from Carriers we’ve already started to see some leaked documents showing the term pricing. According to this leaked information from Rogers Wireless they will launch the BlackBerry Bold 9790 with a 3yr pricing of $99.99 with an accompanying voice and data plan. I’m not really feeling the $99 price point, it just seems to close to the current retail price of the Bold 9900, yet it has lessened features. I guess we’ll have to wait and see how the public take this, but I guess we’ve already seen a bit of that in Jakarta.

A page from the Rogers Holiday Catalog has leaked to the web and it brings some exciting news for BlackBerry fans. Rogers is gearing up to launch two of our favorite BlackBerrys in White, as well as launching another soon-to-be favorite. The Bold 9900 and Curve 9360 are both available on multiple carriers and now we will be seeing them available in White on the Rogers network. The Bold 9790 has yet to be announced but we know it’s coming. Verizon has this new device set for a November 17th launch, so we could be hearing something official from RIM any day now. There’s no pricing or launch date info for these three devices, but at least we know they are coming in time for the holidays!

Rogers has been stocking the Curve 9360 in Black for a little while now and it looks as if they will now be getting the 9360 in white. Dummy units have started showing up at various Rogers locations across Canada and we’re hearing that it will be officially hitting shelves on November 15th. The pricing structure is said to be the same as the 9360 in black; $49.99 with a 3-year contract agreement and $349.99 outright.
After much speculation and numerous leaks, the BlackBerry Curve 9360 has officially launched on Rogers. The device is currently available online and will be available in-store sometime in the coming week. The rumored pricing we have seen turned out to be correct with the Curve 9360 going for $49.99 on a 3-year contract. If you’re on Rogers and have been waiting to get your hands on a new Curve, today’s the day for you. Just hit the link below to head on over to Rogers and order your new 9360.

The above specification and pricing sheet for the Curve 9360 from Rogers has leaked online. The specs are what we have seen on all the other Curve 9360s that have already launched, including the 800 MHz processor, 480 x 360 display, and BlackBerry 7. The Curve 9360 will run you $49.99 with a 3-year Rogers contract, $99.99 on a 2-year, or $149.99 on a 1-year. If you want to get the device with no contract it will run you $299.99. We should see Rogers officially release this device sometime soon, maybe even this week.

Rogers has just announced a sweet, new wireless plan for BlackBerry users and abusers.
