New Blackberrys on the way

This week has has seen not one but two bits of great news for Blackberry fans.

The first is that the Blackberry Storm2 is now official and coming to Vodafone here in the UK.



The specs are without doubt better than the original Storm with the inclusion of Wi-Fi (Yay!). Kevin over at has done a fantastic review of the Storm2, so rather than me waffling on about something I’m not an expert on click here to see his review.


The second piece of news is that the Blackberry Bold2 (9700) may be with us sooner than we thought.


T-Mobile Bold2

T-Mobile in Germany have stated that the Bold 9700 will be with them in November. The Bold 9700, which had the codename of Onyx, is the same size as the current Blackberry Curve 8900. Unlike the Curve though it has 3G/HSDPA which I really missed when using a Curve. Also, gone is the trackball. Its been replaced by the trackpad we mentioned recently when we reviewed the Curve 8520. Along with all the other features you would expect with a Blackberry I think this one is going to be massive for RIM and keep there growth on the upward slope.

Hopefully we will have both these devices to review in due course so keep your eye peeled for further news.
