BlackBerry Pearl 9105 With T9 Keypad Spotted In the Wild, Looks Weird

Labels: , ,

The Nexus One isn't what we're here to talk about, instead we're talking about the BlackBerry Pearl on the right which could turn out to sport the 9105 number. Anyways, as you can see in the image above it's sporting a traditional T9 keypad. The one on the left is the the Pearl 9100 with the usual SureType keyboard. There's no carrier-branding on either of these BB's so we'll just have to wait for the official word from RIM to see exactly where these are headed.


Microsoft Pink "Turtle" Shows Up In the Wild

Labels: , , ,

Here's an interesting one. Someone in the wild has been spotted with what appears to be one of the Microsoft Pink devices that should get announced on Monday. This is supposedly the Turtle and it's headed to Verizon - clearly you can see why it got its name. This handset has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard along with a touchscreen display. It looks pretty funny, so we'll see how this goes with the teens.

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

Okay, well, Verizon is announcing something on Monday, April 12th. Engadget believes that it's the Microsoft Pink (Pure and Turtle), while Phandroid believes it's the HTC Incredible. It's only 3 days away, so be sure to tune in on Monday to see what's up.

Update: According to Slash Gear, SanDisk has actually confirmed that Pink will be announced on Monday. Both of the handsets will feature microSD card slots (especially SanDisk ones), which is a big positive - seeing how WinPho 7 won't have support for that.

RIM Planning To Launch 8.9-Inch BlackBerry Tablet This Year?

Labels: , ,

The latest rumour states that RIM could be launching a BlackBerry tablet sometime this year, more specifically the second half of this year. Apparently, RIM has just ordered 8.9-inch touchscreen displays from Hon Hai and what else could they really do with that large of a display? They must be working on a tablet and that's pretty interesting because I would've never guessed that RIM would make a tablet. All that we know right now is that it'll sport WiFi and 3.5G connectivity. We'll have to wait for more details.

Update: According to Phone Arena, RIM's tablet is apparently codenamed the "BlackPad" or the "Cobalt".

Hiton HT-960 Tablet Sports HP Slate-Like Specs, But It's Cheaper and Runs Windows XP

Labels: , ,

An unknown company (to me, at least) has just announced their own tablet. What you see above is the Hiton HT-960, which has a pretty good spec sheet. Engadget mentions that it's comparable to the HP Slate. This tablet will feature an 8.9-inch touchscreen display with a 1,024 x 600 resolution, an Intel Atom 1.6GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM, and a 16GB SSD. This tablet will reportedly launch for around $418 USD which is fairly good, but it's running Windows XP so that's a turn-off. I wonder how it will work in the real world, though it looks decent on paper.
