Vodafone Blackberry Storm

image The Boy Genius claims to have uncovered some shots of the soon to be released touch screen only Blackberry Storm on the Vodafone network. This would go along nicely with what we have heard that the Storm is going to be a Vodafone exclusive in the UK and even buying one SIM free may be a struggle, thanks Mike at Superetrader for the info. Loads of pictures after the break.

Blackberry Bold unboxed

Recently RIM released their new baby, the Blackberry 9000 Bold and this seems to be a popular choice among the Blackberry fans. I must admit that I’ve never really used a Blackberry device in anger, I’ve set them up for other people and played with BES a little but never really got my hands dirty with the handset itself.

However, the Bold looked like an interesting device, full QWERTY keyboard and a Half VGA display coupled with HSDPA and 1GB of ROM, I thought it was about time that we looked that the BB more closely.


The Blackberry Bold


I know many people fall in to one of two camps, those that love BB and those that hate it. Blackberry lovers seem to claim that their devices are easier to use and more robust than their Windows Mobile counterparts. We’re going to have a look over the next week or so.

As always, you can see the device up close in our unboxing video below:
