RIM teases on Facebook, BlackBerry Tour 9650 release imminent

RIM teases on Facebook, BlackBerry Tour 9650 release imminent

BlackBerry Facebook 9650 Tease

CrackBerry caught a quick screen shot of the BlackBerry Facebook account attempting to… actually, to be honest, we’re not sure what exactly they are trying to do. The post has been removed, but it read: “The BlackBerry Tour 9650 is coming! Check back soon for official news!” We’re a little perplexed as to why RIM didn’t go with the Tour2, like the Storm2 and why the announcement was made via their Facebook account (and on Apple’s Tablet day?). In any regard, any Tour 9630 owners feel a little shafted by the existence of the 9650? If RIM offered 9630 owners an upgrade — similar to the upgrade offered to Storm 1 owners — would you take it? Trust us, we’re not saying they will… More →

BlackBerry Tour2 9650 makes its debut in Cellebrite, Verizon launch imminent?

BlackBerry Tour2 9650 makes its debut in Cellebrite, Verizon launch imminent?

ESSEX-CELLEBRITE

Good news for Verizon Wireless BlackBerry customers that passed on the Storm 2 and the Curve 8530 in order to wait for the Tour2. The much-awaited BlackBerry 9650 was spotted by a Verizon Wireless employee while browsing through Cellebrite, a system used for transferring contacts from one phone to another. There is no confirmed time frame from when a phone appears in Cellebrtie to when it is launched but, in general, a phone’s appearance in Cellebrite is a good indication that a launch is somewhat imminent, though this isn’t a science and is not foolproof. While you wait for this beautiful BlackBerry to hit the shelves, you can drool over the pictures in our hands-on gallery. More →

Sprint's upcoming mobile phone inventory leaked? HTC WiMAX handset leads the pack

Sprint's upcoming mobile phone inventory leaked? HTC WiMAX handset leads the pack

sprint-2010-inventory

Some thought Sprint was teaming up with LG to launch a killer WiMAX smartphone at CES but the big press event came and went with nary a mention of an LG-branded WiMAX handset on the horizon. A leaked inventory list from Sprint reveals that we all might have been barking up the wrong tree. First on the inventory list is not an LG phone but the HTC A9292, an Android-powered WiMAX handset with a candy bar form factor. HTC already has one WiMAX phone in its portfolio, perhaps the A9292 will become the second. Our unknown friend, the LG LS680 makes its second appearance on a Sprint inventory list. The LS680 will be an Android handset which the tipster claims is similar to the GW620 Eve. Also making a second appearance is the Palm C40, an unknown device that was originally spotted in Sprint’s inventory last August. The tipster leaked additional information about some new handsets that do not appear on the inventory list above, too, so hit PhoneArena for the details. More →
