    100% Proof From Tawkon: Death Grip Impacts iPhone 4, BlackBerry Bold & Nexus One (Video)

    Remember how back during the Antennagate press conference, Steve Jobs explained that all smartphones have an Achilles Heel known as their antenna? Oh sure, we all rolled our eyes and then oohed and aahed when we learned we’d get bumpers. Well guess what… Jobs was right. Again. And now, courtesy of Tawkon we’ve got the proof. A video produced by Tawkon clearly demonstrates… Read More

  • Howard Stern chooses the BlackBerry Bold over the Palm Pre (for now)

    Oh my God, call the president! Howard Stern, who was given a private, sneak peak of the Palm Pre, has instead decided to go with the BlackBerry Bold. (As if the man can only afford one phone, or won’t decide to buy a Pre when it comes out, whenever that is.) He broke the news today. Read More

  • AT&T: Refurbished BlackBerry Bold for free with new contract (today only)

  • CrunchDeals: BlackBerry Bold for Free

    I’ve never purchased a phone from an online retailer before, so I’m a bit skeptical of this screaming deal over at Letstalk, but if $300 is too steep a price to pay for the Bold (review) then you’d be out of your mind not to scoop this up. The starting price on Letstalk is $100 cheaper than AT&T and they’re even offering free shipping. Read More

  • Review: BlackBerry Bold for AT&T

    How can I put into words how I feel about the BlackBerry Bold? In short: I love it and never ever want to let it go, ever. For any BlackBerry user/fan the Bold is everything you’ve wanted and expected from RIM. Sure, it took a little longer than we all expected, but it’s definitely worth the wait. It’s far superior in every respect from anything that RIM has put out on… Read More

  • Unboxing: BlackBerry Bold

    It’s been a long time coming and while the rest of the world has had the Bold for months, those of us crackberry heads will finally get it on the 4th of November. We were lucky enough to snag one early and I’m giddy like a 4-year-old with a mountain of tooth-decaying candy on my bed. It’s fast, powerful and oh-so-sexy. I present to you, dear reader, the BlackBerry Bold… Read More

  • BlackBerry Bold margins appear to be huge


    According to iSuppli the BlackBerry Bold has a BOM of $169.41, which might lead you to believe that RIM’s margins for the device are huge when compared to the selling price here in the US. AT&T will be selling the device for $300 with a 2-year contract or for $550 without (I think). Best Buy has it up on their website now for $660 and CompUSA is selling it for $800. The most… Read More

  • BlackBerry Bold being delayed again by AT&T, says RIM CEO

    RIM CEO Mike Lazaridis made it known today that AT&T is still testing the Bold to ensure that it’s sub-par 3G network can support it and those of us waiting for it to come out won’t go ape shit like we did when the iP3G came out. In all fairness, it was more or less Apple’s fault and not AT&T’s, but I’m grumpy and just want this damn phone to come… Read More

  • AT&T to start training for the BlackBerry Bold on the 16th, launching on the 20th?

    Will the madness ever end? BBNews is stating that inside sources have informed them that AT&T will begin training reps on the Bold beginning the 16th with a launch on the 20th. Apparently the delay was due to AT&T employees not signing up for training. Huh? Oh, and the Bold launching with AT&T is said to have a white keyboard, which is complete BS. Just you wait, I know I’m… Read More

  • Rumor: BlackBerry Bold will never, ever come to T-Mobile or is it?[Update]

    If this is true then I’m going to kick someone’s ass. BBNews has word from a “high-level insider” that the Bold will never make its way to T-Mobile. Instead, T-Mo will focus on that craptacular looking clamshell Pearl 8220, which will supposedly support 6-way calling. I find no solace in knowing the Curve II will be hitting landing in November. None at all. I guess… Read More

  • Best Buy reveals launch date for BlackBerry Bold


    After the Android announcement, I think I’m back to the “eh” mentality as far as the BBB goes. I’ll still get one, but the enthusiasm I once had for the RIM device has slowly diminished to nothing more than a “I guess it’s still cool even though it’s launched in India and Japan, but it’s nowhere to be seen in the US” sort of deal.

  • Video: Exciting commercial for the missing in action BlackBerry Bold

    Drum roll! Or not! Presenting the commercial for the BlackBerry Bold, which aired during the season premiere of Heroes on Monday night, a show I can honestly say I’ve never seen. We don’t know what’s the hold up, either. Read More

  • AT&T was supposed to announce BlackBerry Bold yesterday


    According to a press release obtained by the BGR, AT&T was scheduled to announce the Bold‘s October launch yesterday, but for some reason the press release was not put out. At least we know for certain that when it does launch it’ll set you back $300. It’s also packed with a 624MHz processor, 1GB of memory, built-in Wi-Fi, GPS (AT&T Navigator Global Edition), and… Read More

  • BlackBerry Bold release pushed back to September


    Interest in the BBB is at an all time low. BlackBerry News is reporting that the 3G BlackBerry from RIM is now being pushed back to September 1 or later. I’m not sure about you folks, but I’m over it. Read More

  • BGR gives a BlackBerry Bold browser play-by-play

    Not satisfied with The Boy Genuis Report’s exhaustive BlackBerry Bold review? Lucky you, BGR has given another walk through, this time just on the handset’s browser. Highlights: though many pages still loaded wonky and sites that have special BlackBerry views had trouble loading, the “Bold does a pretty decent job at banging sites.” Tested sites includ: surprise, The… Read More

  • Blackberry Bold on track for August – that's still Summer technically

    Oh, those naughty bloggers. How hardworking PR people must hate the rumors incessantly bubbling up based on every offhand remark or misspoken word. In this case the buzz has been around the much-anticipated Blackberry Bold being delayed until August, though if you ask them, August was the target all along. RIM PR guy Erik van Drunen says: We didn’t say anything about ‘July’… Read More

  • BlackBerry Bold hands on: You know, for everyone


    I got a little face time with the BlackBerry Bold today and came away impressed. The BlackBerry Bold is a new step for RIM. Whereas the Pearl aimed at the non-smartphone user who wanted some email functionality, the Bold clearly aims at a new audience – the extreme emailer in a casual business. Whereas most of the line is built for IT guys and members of the khaki-clad workforce, the… Read More

  • BlackBerry Bold appears on AT&T site, let the drooling commence


    The connection in my hotel here in Berlin is slow as molasses or FF is being weird, so my apologies for the strange screen cap. While everyone else is frothing over the iPhone 3G, I’m patiently waiting for the Bold to hit the streets. AT&T now has it up on their site, so jump on over and check it out. Nothing new, though. The specs we’ve all been expecting and heard about… Read More
