Blackberry Torch 9810, Bold 9930, and Torch 9850: Now reaching the store shelves.

As planned, three of AT&T and Sprint’s RIM BlackBerry 7-based smartphones are now available in various store shelves. Sprint has made the largest launch and shipped the BlackBerry Torch 9850 along with the BlackBerry Bold 9930 devices in a very affordable pricing. The Torch can be purchased online for $150 with a contract, while the Bold 9930 (with contract) will be available for only $200. Although the two manufacturers confirmed this pricing as official, several US carriers are still panning to sell the smartphones for $50 more on average.

On the other hand, AT&T has just made its second-generation 4G BlackBerry Torch 9810 available in the market, but hasn’t revealed any shipping dates for the Bold. The Torch 9810 is said to be the least expensive BlackBerry 7 device so far, with its price tag of $50 (with contract).

The three handsets run on the same 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor and brings a five-megapixel camera. However, they still differ from each other in terms of displays and keyboards. The Blackberry Torch 9810 gets a 3.25-inch, 640×480 display and a five-megapixel camera with autofocus; while the Torch 9850 features a 3.5-inch, 480×800 display with a touch-only option. Bold 9900, the thinnest and smallest among the group, brings a 2.8-inch, 640×480 screen display with no autofocus camera, but offers an interactive QWERTY keyboard.

T-Mobile’s BlackBerry Bold 9900, Costs $300

Written on August 17, 2011 by Lulu

T-Mobile confirmed that they will have the BlackBerry Bold 9900 for $300.

T-Mobile chose midnight to price and date their BlackBerry Bold 9900 version. The BlackBerry 7 hardware will arrive to shops on August 31. For unclear reasons, the said version of the phone will cost higher than the AT&T, Sprint or Verizon versions. It will be on $300 on contract even after a $50 rebate.

The T-Mobile’s version should be similar to those of other networks other than the requisite change over its native bands, 14.4Mbps 3G. Its capabilities – such as Wi-Fi calling – aren’t expected to be available immediately, and it’s not clear if the personal hotspot creation will be an option.

The Bold 9900 is said to be RIM’s flagship of the year, with a mix of a 2.8-inch, 640 x 480 touchscreen and a distinctive, large QWERTY keyboard. The 1.2GHz Snapdragon, that goes along with 768MB of RAM and BlackBerry 7, are key to a major improvement in speed. Slimming down versus earlier Bolds drops autofocus from the 5 megapixel camera, but is returned by 720p movie recording. About 8GB of storage is built-in, even if 188MB is available purely for apps.

AT&T Disabling the Bold 9900’s NFC feature

Written on August 16, 2011 by Lulu

AT&T is allegedly planning to block the Bold 9900's NFC capabilities.

AT&T reportedly has no plans to get the BlackBerry Bold 9900’s near-field communications (NFC) capabilities at launch. However, an unnamed source said that the hardware seems to be capable of NFC features when it arrives in the hands of AT&T’s customers. The said carrier will implement a software block to prevent users to take advantage of the technology.

If the report mentioned above is accurate, AT&T would not be the only carrier to block the new BlackBerry’s NFC feature. The first Bold 9900 buyers in the UK have been dealt a similar fate as Vodafone is not yet ready to enable the said capability.

AT&T didn’t give any statements regarding the matter. It is still unclear if the carriers currently dodging NFC have plans to enable the feature in the near future.

According to a rumor, Sprint's version of Galaxy S II - named Epic Touch 4G - is set to be released on September.

A rumor that emerged on Tuesday narrowed down several launch details of Sprint’s version of Galaxy S II prior to its scheduled release date. Samsung’s phone should be christened as the Epic Touch 4G to make clear the absence of a keyboard. The said dual-core Android device is set to release in September.

Samsung has officially planned to bring the Galaxy S II to the U.S. shores in August and could leave Sprint running late. The company’s comments may have been referring to announcements and not shipments, and could see most other companies following suit.
