BlackBerry Bold 9800 slider gets caught on video

BlackBerrySlider

One of our BlackBerry connects sent us in a nice treat a little while ago… it is the first ever live video of the mythical BlackBerry Bold sliding device coming out of Waterloo. The quality of the video is also decently clear, so check it out, okay? We’re still trying to confirm the model number of the handset, but it’s definitely in the Bold lineup as has been rumored, and now confirmed via the branding on the back of the phone. Oh, the device is also running OS 6.0. Video is after the break! More →

With rumors and rumors of a clamshell BlackBerry device going back ages, we finally have some confirmation on the phone, and in a big way, too. Not only do we have the first photos ever of this BlackBerry 9670, and not only is it the first BlackBerry clamshell ever seen (we don’t really count the Pearl Flip), but it’s also running the first ever photos of OS 6.0 (on a device). We’d love to tell you all about this brand new BlackBerry device… after the jump! More →

Finally, it’s official: the much-awaited HTC Droid Incredible will be hitting Verizon Wireless on April 29th for $199 with two year agreement, as had been previously reported. With mind-numbing specs like a 1GHz processor, Android 2.1, an 8 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, HTC’s Sense UI and a lot more, we have a feeling this is going to run pretty darn well on Verizon’s network. Full press release after the jump! More →

Apple sells 300,000 iPads as of Saturday

Apple sells 300,000 iPads as of Saturday

ipad-launch

Apple just fired off a press release touting the fact that they’ve sold over 300,000 iPad devices as of Saturday at midnight. A far cry from Gene Munster’s 700,000 (though some could say that’s what happens when you count people and not stock check), it’s still pretty in line with what everyone else was predicting, and that’s kind of amazing. Also, the 300,000 figure is the entire figure — pre-orders, Apple store sales, partner sales, etc. People also downloaded over 250,000 books from the iBooks store as well as over one million apps. Here’s a quote from Steve Jobs:

“It feels great to have the iPad launched into the world — it’s going to be a game changer,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “iPad users, on average, downloaded more than three apps and close to one book within hours of unpacking their new iPad.”

Not bad, not bad. More →

Apple sues HTC for patent infringement

Apple sues HTC for patent infringement

After talking to HTC when they were giving us a preview of the HTC Hero a while back, we asked about multitouch and why they finally decided to include it. More or less, the response we received was that HTC and their legal team felt confident about including it, and with other competitors like Palm including multitouch, everything would be alright. Fast forward to literally a couple minutes ago, and we now find Apple filing suit against HTC regarding everything from hardware to the iPhone’s user interface. Let’s see if you can figure out who gave this quote:

“We can sit by and watch competitors steal our patented inventions, or we can do something about it. We’ve decided to do something about it. We think competition is healthy, but competitors should create their own original technology, not steal ours.”

If you said Steve Jobs, you’d be correct. Full press release after the break. More →

Steve Jobs steps down, Tim Cook runnin’ the ship until June

Steve Jobs steps down, Tim Cook runnin’ the ship until June

This story is so hot that I’m going to have to keep this short out of fear of burning my fingers — Steve Jobs is stepping down at Apple to take himself “out of the limelight and focus” on his health. He will take a leave of absence until the end of June and Mr. Cook will be running the day-to-day operations in the meantime, but Jobs will still be involved in all “major strategic decisions” while he is gone. Trading has reportedly been halted on shares of AAPL. We wish Steve a speedy recovery, but this doesn’t sound good, folks. The full message from Jobs is after the break…
