More photos of the BlackBerry Pearl 9100

9100 1

We posted some pictures a while ago of the BlackBerry Pearl 9100 and today we are lucky enough to find some more. The guys at have managed to get some nice new shots of the device and I must say its looking pretty nice.

We don’t know a tonne about the 9100 although it will have 3G unlike its predecessor, the Pearl 8100. At Mobile World Congress RIM were reluctant to discuss the 9100. I did mention it and they pretended to not know what I was talking about. They knew alright!

Earlier this month there were some rumours going around on various sites saying that the BlackBerry 9100 may get a full QWERTY keyboard. Looks like that one is not on the cards. The keys would have to be seriously small if that was the case.

We do not have any expected release dates or carrier news on the 9100 but as soon as we do we will let you know.

App store now accepting iPad submissions


Apple has just announced that they’re opening the doors to their App Store for iPad-optimized app submissions. Developers who wish to get their apps on the first batch of iPad units on April 3rd will have to get their works in by March 27th. Just to update you guys, the iPhone OS 3.2 SDK is now inbeta 5 form. This announcement may have very little to do with us non-developers who are just waiting to get our hands on the latest gadgets, but we certainly can help the developers out by letting them now which apps we would love to see optimized for the Apple iPad.

Editorial: is iPhone jailbreaking fostering piracy? Oh yes, it is!!!

You gotta be pretty naive to think that iPhone jailbreaking is not fostering privacy.

Vodafone Spain replacing 3000 infected MicroSD card in

vodafone_htc_magic_april_uk It looks like the virus-strewn HTC Magic that was recently purchased from Vodafone UK is only the tip of the iceberg. According to Vodafone Spain, some 3,000 users in all may have been exposed to Mariposa malware — which used the handset’s storage to make its way to customer’s PCs via USB, leading the company to replace the microSD cards for infected customers. The company also says that the incident is "isolated and local," but with the number of infections rising from one in the UK to 3,000 in Spain in just over a week we wouldn’t be surprised this story was just heating up.

Sony Ericsson X10 Mini and Pro release dates?

Xperia_X10_mini_pro_Open_Black I’m sure you will have seen our coverage of the new Sony Ericsson X10 Mini and Mini Pro both from MWC last month and also from the press event. Both of these little handsets look like being winners, they’ve certainly been attracting a lot of attention between them!

So you may be wondering when you might be able to go out and buy one of these mini Android marvels, and we’d love to know that too! Today we popped over to and were presented with the X10 Mini on the home page. If you head over there now you’ll see that you can pre-order the X10 Mini for £299.99 or the Mini Pro for £339.99.

Personally for just £40 difference I’d be going for the Pro, at least then you have the option of whether or not to use the QWERTY keyboard.

Both handsets are now showing a shipping date of the 24th May though, still some way off and that firmly puts them in Q2. Seems that SE are experiencing some delays with their handsets lately, lets hope that’s not indicative of any issues!

Head over to eXpansys to learn more about pre-ordering.

BlackBerry OS 6 screen shots leaked

BB Logo

OS 6 for BlackBerry has been on the cards for sometime and this morning BlackBerryLeaks have posted a few pictures of what is allegedly the new OS.

The cheeky chap at BlackBerry Leaks has teased us overnight here in the UK. Before I went to bed he tweeted that he had something big to show us. I decided I couldn’t stay up and wait and when I got up this morning he himself had not got home from work and so I was up in time.

What he has posted are the below images.
