BlackBerry 9900 official launch event


Next week, on Wednesday, August 3rd, RIM are having a press event in Central London where one can only presume we will get the official BlackBerry Bold 9900 launch details. Various dates for launch have been bouncing around the internet for some time although none of the UK carriers have committed to a specific date yet. Many online retailers that sell sim free handsets say August 15th but until we hear it from RIM direct I wont hold my breath.

We could however see some other devices at the event, although I am not putting my money on this. We know RIM will have several new models in the market this year but when and where remains a mystery.

As soon as we have the Bold 9900’s launch date will will of course let you know.

In the meantime you can see our hands on video here if you have not seen it already. And our full review of the device will be published within the next few days.

Kodak Easyshare Max Z990 review

Kodak Easyshare Max Z990 review Kodak as we all know, have been around for a very long time, providing great affordable digital cameras to the masses, but they haven’t often ventured into the what I would call ‘Beginner photographer’ market. By this I mean the Bridge camera as this is often seen as the stop gap between a blooming photographers becoming a professional user, the obvious next step after a bridge camera is a DSLR which are A LOT more expensive than this one.

I have in for review a brand new Bridge camera from Kodak named- Kodak Easyshare Max Z990. Will this stack up against the competition or fall flat on its face due to relative inexperience in the field of bridge cameras?

Read on to find out.
