Honestly now… there has been so many leaks of the next-gen iPhone we’re curious what will be the highlight of the official announcement. Hopefully the new OS will have some wicked enhancements to it! Fresh out of China comes a new shot of the upcoming iPhone, this time is a stunning white version. (more…)

Back in February we wrote a quick post about how Mobilicity hired New York-based branding firm Verse Group to create the Mobilicity “brand story, name and visual identity”. Verse Chief Creative Officer Michael Thibodeau stated that “the Mobilicity brand connects with consumers because, in fact, consumers had a say in co-creating it during extensive market research”.
Here’s a little more insight into the Canada’s newest wireless company. They hired Toronto-based DMD Retail Design to come up with the in-store Mobilicity look. DMD president & creative director David Milne said that the concept that Mobilicity went with “was the one we termed urban scheme, the inspiration coming from a New York subway (more…)
RIM has created and put the largest BlackBerry on display on the Beaubourg Esplanade in Paris, France. What’s kinda cool about this “piece of art” is that it actually gives live updates straight from the BlackBerry France Facebook Fan Page. Check out the live video feed here.
In addition, below is a vid that shows all two stories of this BlackBerry being built:
We got an e-mail earlier today in a lovely Times New Roman font that simply stated” Nokia is hosting a one-of-a-kind event in Toronto on June 1st. Shop till you drop with a little help from Nokia’s Ovi Store, and get ready to mix, mingle and “app”-etize in style.”
Nothing else in the e-mail but it’s probably going to be a major discount on apps but we hope they really announce their new devices. So something is happening and we’ll fill you in when we find out more. It’s kinda making me hungry though.
Wind has just priced dropped a couple more devices. You can now get the HTC Maple for $200 (was $300) and also the Huawei 7519 for $90 (was $130)… maybe they’ll discount the Bold 9700 soon! We also hear that some new devices are going to be released when Wind launches Vancouver.
Looks like Rogers has revised their U.S. & International Text Messaging Travel Packs. Perfect for those looking to go to the states and pick us a cheaper iPad because it looks they have increased the rates but have also increased the number of text messages you get. First image is the old plan followed by the new plans that are not on the website yet: (more…)
The Queen is scheduled to come visit Canada this Summer and when she’s attend at least two military events in Halifax, then be in Ottawa for Canada Day and have dinner with Prime Minister Stephen Harper… then travel to Waterloo to visit RIM and according to The Record “she’ll inspect the production line”.
What do you think RIM will give her as a gift? A Bold 9700, Bold 9800 Slider, Pearl 9100?
Virgin seems to be releasing a new device every week these days – last week it was the LG 230 and Nokia 2730… this week they’ve added the Samsung Impact in Black. This can be yours for $49.99 on a 2-year or $199.99 outright.
In addition, Virgin has a promo going on that when you sign a 2 or 3-year contract with any myPlan or Smartphone Combo plan they’ll upgrade you to the next level plan for 3 months… so more minutes and data at no charge. Perfect timing for the launch of their BlackBerry 9100 (see the bus ad of the 9100 that’s started to pop up in Toronto). (more…)
Back at WES 2010 RIM showed a video into their new UI called BlackBerry 6 that included a very quick look at the Webkit browser. Thanks to The Cellular Guru today you’ll see the pics below of what is the unreleased BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider that has a clean shot of RIM’s new browser in action. As you can see by the Acid3 test it scored 100/100 so pages will render fast and accurate, just how it looks on your laptop/desktop. (more…)
At Google I/O today they announced the 7th updated to their Android OS – 2.2 “Froyo”. Some of the major upgrades from this version is the performance and speed (runs 2-5 times faster when compared to 2.1), faster browsing experience, support for Adobe Flash and Adobe Air, built-in support for tethering, Mobile hotspot support, automatic update for apps.
