Theres no doubt about it that RIM and security go hand in hand. Just a few months ago the BlackBerry PlayBook received FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard) certification and today RIM has let us know that their new BlackBerry 7 operating system, that is currently found on 4 new BlackBerry smartphones, have been awarded common criteria EAL4+ certification. The EAL4+ certification continues to build upon on RIM mission to stay the industry leader in mobile security.
“Security is one of the most important considerations for enterprise customers and we are proud that BlackBerry 7 OS has earned this rigorous certification,” said Scott Totzke, Senior Vice President, BlackBerry Security at RIM. “RIM is renowned as a market leader in the delivery of secure mobile solutions, and this achievement helps to provide our customers globally with continued confidence in deploying BlackBerry solutions throughout their organizations.”
If you’re interested in reading the full Press Release you can find it after the break, it’ll give you a better inside into just why your movement probably relies on RIM and their services.
Waterloo, ON – Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ:RIMM)(TSX:RIM) today announced that BlackBerry® smartphones running on the BlackBerry® 7 Operating System (OS) have been independently evaluated by a third-party Common Criteria evaluation facility and meet the security criteria for evaluation assurance level (EAL) 4+.
The Common Criteria is an international standard for validating that products meet specific security requirements.

Last September RIM came to the table with the all-new BlackBerry Torch 9800, a device that was greeted with less than stellar reviews from the tech community and consumers alike. Just under a year later RIM launched what they hoped to be a powerhouse upgrade, a new phone, a new beginning. The big question is, did the Torch 9810 live up to its hype, did RIM deliver with the new BlackBerry 7 OS and hardware accelerated graphics? Follow me after the break and find out.

Looks as though the US exclusivity on the Torch 9810 is about to end, as documents surface that dictate a November 9th launch for T-Mobile USA. Still nothing official from the carrier or RIM, but this is the second time we’ve seen this date. So we must ask…who’s getting one?

If this leaked T-Mobile document holds true it looks as though AT&T maybe losing their exclusivity on the BlackBerry Torch 9810 that they’ve heled since the original Torch 9800 launched in the US. According to this document, the Torch 9810 should be making its way onto T-Mobile around November 9th, with pricing to be determined. So how many users would be looking to pick up the BlackBerry 7 powered smartphone on T-Mobile?

If you’re a fan of the slide form factor of the Torch 9800 but wishing it could be a little faster than you’ll probably love the beefed up specs that are found in the all new BlackBerry Torch 9810. The new Torch features a 1.2 ghz processor, 768 mb of ram and a 480×640 high-res display, all of which take advantage of the new BlackBerry 7 operating system and its liquid graphics. Take a look at my full video walk-through of the new BlackBerry Torch 9810 featuring the new BlackBerry 7 operating system.

If you’ve been following RIM close enough then I’m sure you have witnessed their stock drop to a low of $21 and then bounce up to its current rate at the time of this post which is $31.27. The majority of the decrease in stock price occurred after their Q1 earnings call earlier this year, and RIM is about to announce their Q2 results later this month.
On September 15 th 2011 at 5pm Eastern Time, Research In Motion will announce their earnings for their second quarter of fiscal 2012. I’ll be the first to say that I really have no idea how the numbers will be. Yes, we’ve seen an increase of PlayBook sales and retailers are selling out of the new BlackBerry 7 line up, but sadly BlackBerry 7 devices won’t be included in this earnings call. I’m curious to hear what the BlackBerry community has to say. We’re a strong community, let your voice be heard!

Over the past few weeks rumours of Telus launching the Bold 9900 and 9810 seemed quite set in stone as internal documents were floating around stating that they will launch on August 15th. But then things changed with Rogers launching the two new devices on the 9th, so Telus had to change as well. Today Telus has officially launched the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and Torch 9810, with the Torch 9860 coming in the next few weeks. Let us know if you’ve been able to snag a new BlackBerry or if you’re still waiting on your carrier.

We’ve seen the Rogers leaked documents showing the on contract and outright pricing of the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and Torch 9810, but not much from other carriers. A Virgin Mobile Canada document has surfaced showing the following prices,
Virgin BlackBerry Bold 9900:
No-contract price: $599.99
3-year contract/SuperTab: $169.99
Virgin BlackBerry Torch 9810:
No-contract price: $599.99
3-year contract/SuperTab: $149.99
One thing I’ve noticed is that Virgin Mobile is looking to be a little cheaper than rogers on the contract pricing, but slightly higher on the outright. Most people are going to be going onto 3yr terms I would assume so going with Virgin could save you a few bucks.
