We have a feeling that you won’t have to wait long to see what BlackBerry 6 looks like, however, if you are one of those people who needs to know right now, we may have something for you. It appears as though the BlackBerry 6 ship is leaking like a sieve, as over 1,200 icons and some very detailed BB 6 developer slides have made their way onto the internet. Most of the 1,200 leaked icons remain unchanged from previous versions of the OS, however some have been updated to better compliment the newer, hipper, BlackBerry 6 UI. As for the slides, they include: new API details, UI walkthroughs, pinch and zoom details, and graphics specs among other things. Hit the jump for the links, and let us know what you think! More →
If you can’t wait until Tuesday to see what BlackBerry 6 is going to look like, blog driphter.com may have something for you. The blog posted a five minute video of an unreleased BlackBerry 9780 — the purported successor to the Bold 9700 — running BlackBerry OS 6. The video gives us a little taste of what the new WebKit browser and spiffified interface are going to look like. If you’re excited — and judging by our poll yesterday, a lot of you are — hit the jump, we’ve got the video all queued up for you. More →
This is more like it, a little something new and different for the legions of BlackBerry faithful. Salomondrin has gotten his hands on three, count em’ three, unreleased BlackBerrys from Research in Motion. The first — and probably the least exciting of the bunch — is the BlackBerry Curve 9300, the second is the BlackBerry 9670 flip phone (older model), and the third is the BlackBerry 9800 slider (with BlackBerry OS 6). All three handsets get a solid pawing on video. Grab your popcorn and hit the jump, we’ve got all three videos ready to roll. More →
According to a tip Engadget received, it’s possible. Apparently, some refreshed AT&T retail promotional material has been leaked, and it’s all for a July 24th in store refresh. AT&T stores routinely get display materials ahead of product launches, and the earliest we’re looking at for a possible launch here is September (according to historial promotional shipments to stores), but we wouldn’t be surprised to see that turn into October or possibly even November. Microsoft has only gone on record to confirm that the device series will launch in “holiday 2010” so that’s obviously open for interpretation. With the two largest and hottest mobile operating systems out there constantly covering new ground (Android and iOS), are you still excited to see WP7 take shape?
Always on the lookout for the latest Verizon featurephone? Samsung and Verizon are gearing up to launch a new one on July 29th. The Samsung Haven features no camera, so it is aimed at the business/corporate crowd, three programable emergency contact buttons, voice dialing, and, not too much else. Oh, we forgot. To completely push you over the edge, the Samsung Haven has something called “speakerphone” as well. We’d be shocked to see this go for more than $29.99 with a 2 year agreement, and anything over $49.99 would be possibly reprehensible. We have a gallery ready to rock if you’re interested in finding out more.
We have got our hands on some Verizon Wireless docs today, and they range from pricing changes on handsets, to new netbooks, to new handset launches. First up on chopping block is the Samsung N150 netbook which will officially debut on July 8th. If that’s not good enough, it will also launch in Best Buy stores starting tomorrow, ahead of Verizon Retail channel availability. If you’re not familiar, the Samsung N150 netbook comes with a 1.66GHz Intel Atom CPU, 1GB of RAM, a 10.1″ display, 160GB HD, Bluetooth, Windows 7 Starter, and is a Global netbook. We’re not sure on pricing, but we’d wager it won’t break the bank. Make sure to check out the full leaked document in our gallery!
Further details about the Nexus One have emerged since we reported about its exclusivity with Google this morning. It will be apparently be sold by Google for $530 unsubsidized, and $180 with a T-Mobile plan. If you do sign up for a plan and cancel within 120 days of purchase, you’ll have to cough up the remainder of the total cost of the phone — $350, or return the phone to Google. The leaked docs also offer the following tidbits:
We weren’t too positive about that last one as it was from a new source, but this new image comes from a pretty credible connect of ours and it seems to be more reasonable. Here’s what we’ve got for you this time:
iMacs starting at $1098, iPod nanos starting at $138, iPod touch starting at $178, MacBook Pros starting at $1098, Apple TVs starting at $208, Airport Express starting at $88, Magic Mouse and Wireless Keyboard going for $64 each, and a whole lot more! Again, we’re feeling pretty confident about this one and everything looks like it’s in the realm of what Apple would normally do for Black Friday.
P.S. Also note that the Black Friday deals are only on Apple’s Online store, not retail stores.
