RIM has been trying their hardest to build hype for the upcoming release of BlackBerry 10 by slowly releasing tidbits of the upcoming OS and specs of the new phones. This week; however, it seems their secrecy has failed. A multitude of leaks showing the first BlackBerry 10, full-touch device have hit the internet. The image above is the best of the bunch, showing what the homescreen and application list looks like. Past the break we have tons more images of the first BlackBerry 10 device. Be sure to take a look and get excited because the launch is only about six months away, or less.

When the BlackBerry PlayBook launched back in April it didn’t launch with any support for Mac users, but RIM went on the record and said they will have support this summer. Fast forward to today and we now have official support with Desktop Manager for mac. The new version let’s users sync their PlayBook with their iTunes media collection, helping you stay organized and help you keep your music collection up to date. The updated DM for Mac also allows you to sync you photos taken on the PlayBook with the iPhoto application found on almost all Mac computers.
The update is now available via direct download at BlackBerry.com/software, and existing Desktop Manager users should see it as an update when the open up the software.

I’m almost at a loss for words here and I fear consumers will be confused with T-Mobile calling the BlackBerry Bold 9900 a “4G” smartphone. Today T-Mobile sent me over a few press releases on what new devices they plan on carrying this year, and of course one was the all new BlackBerry Bold 9900. Where things got a little messy is when they stated the new Bold 9900 will be coming to T-Mobile’s “4G” network, and while their network technically can be classified as a 4G network, consumers have connected 4G to LTE which the 9900 is not.
Now T-Mobile by any means is not the only carrier calling their HSPA+ network a “4G” network, up here in Canada Telus and Bell are both stating their HSPA+ networks are “4G” lets just hope their customers understand the difference. Check out the full press statement after the break.
The guys over at engadget have given us a much more in depth video peek at a pre-release BlackBerry Torch 2 and I gotta say it’s looking pretty slick. The form factor is almost identical to the original Torch 9800 but from the video it appears that the build is a bit more burly with a sweet gunmetal finish instead of the chrome-esque plastic finish of the current generation of BlackBerry devices, and the battery door that we previously mentioned looked a bit grotesque in the blurry pics we had is mentioned as a desirable feature. The new liquid graphics screen and updated webkit browser both appear to be considerably faster and more responsive than what we have now as well.
As far as we know the specs are still as previously mentioned
- 1.2 GHz processor
- 3.17-inch TFT LCD (640 x 480) -> Should probably be 480×640 portrait and 640×480 landscape
- 768MB of RAM
- 8GB internal memory
- MicroSD HC slot up to 32GB
- 5MP rear camera with 720P HD video recording
The BlackBerry Touch is probably the most talked about BlackBerry of the entire 2011 bunch. People have wanted to get their hands on this guy since talk of the Storm 3 started over a year ago, and it appears that the lucky guy in this video finally has gotten his chance. This is the BlackBerry Touch, codenamed Monaco with a CDMA antenna and Monza with GSM. I know i’m excited after checking out this video. BlackBerry OS 6.1 looks to be running extremely smooth on that 1.2 GHz processor. This phone definitely looks like the BlackBerry that we have all been waiting for since we heard of the Storm a few years back. From the looks of spec sheets, photos, and videos, the 2011 BlackBerry devices are going to be the crop that RIM and the BlackBerry world has been waiting for. Who’s excited for what BlackBerry has planned for 2011?
