Last week SaskTel added the BlackBerry Curve 8530 to their lineup and over the weekend they were doing some upgrades to their website. Looks like they have also released the Curve in a stunning Purple and state that “The Curve would make a great first smartphone”… we agree. (more…)
Read this: BlackBerry announces the Q20
Gotta hand it to Koodo Mobile as they do come out with some creative way to get attention. This time they have dropped that weird Gingerbread man and created an WWE/Ultimate Fighter with “El Tabador” who wants you to “Tab-In”.
Virgin has a promo going on right now that’s pretty darn good – especially if you’re looking to use their old CDMA network.
They state that they’ll save you over $600 with all their credits and discounts such as Text Messaging & Voicemail and Call Display for only $15 a month… but the real question is if you want to sign up for a 2-year contract and get a basic device, no iPhone or Blackberry devices available, but there are a number of QWERTY devices for you to choose from.

There has been several images surface of the BlackBerry Slider over the past couple weeks, more images have popped up that show the back of the device with its new F-S1 battery. Questions are still circling about the actual camera an if it’s a 5.0 megapixel or a 3.2 megapixel. In addition, BGR has written a post stating that the device might be called the 9900/9930 slider and that it supports 850/1900MHz UMTS bands, so Rogers, TELUS, Bell (even Virgin) could possible be getting this.
Would be cool to see some video of the slider in action.
What do you think.. would you pick up a BlackBerry Slider? (more…)
Here’s something light for a Sunday evening. Remember a few weeks back when Virgin Mobile entertained a few select Torontonians at the corner of Yonge & Dundas. They called it the “Random Acts Of Love” and it took 150 dancers to make it happen. They’ve released a video that shows the entire scene unfold… the video on the left is the actual flash mob event and the video on the right is the making of “Random Acts Of Love”. We just hope that the experience goes beyond just being a fun loving brand and translates into some activations. (more…)
TELUS has released an official OS update for their BlackBerry Bold 9700. This version is OS 188.8.131.522 and as usual make sure you back up before you start to download this new version. Get it here at BlackBerry (more…)
Until recently you could only purchase a Rogers iPhone at both Future Shop and Best Buy, the exclusivity contract has now passed and you can purchase it from all the carriers that distribute it: Rogers, Bell, TELUS, Virgin, Fido.
We got tipped and it’s a pretty good deal for those looking to purchase a Bell iPhone (3G 8GB, 3GS 16GB or 3GS 32GB) on a new 3-year contract. Bell has put together a limited time offer until March 31st and we’re told that “Bell clients activating an Apple iPhone on a Consumer or Small Business plan at Future Shop or Best Buy locations can now receive an additional $85 in credits; a $50 in store and a $35 bill credit.”
Usually when a discount like this occurs the credit can be only used for accessories, but the great news is that the terms and conditions state that “The in store credit can be used to discount hardware or accessories”. Good deal for a discounted iPhone.
The Motorola Milestone came out blazing with its Android OS 2.0.1 goodness a few weeks back. Good news as TELUS has now officially dropped the 3-year contract price by $50 to a low $149.99. This launched back on February 16th so here’s hoping next month this beast of a device will drop below the $100 mark… (more…)
Very good news for all the current Palm webOS users out there! Currently we only have the Bell Palm Pre available but one of the major upsets was the lack of video capability and this was fixed with recent webOS 1.4 update.
Another source of frustration was the App Catalog as we only have free apps available to us, no paid apps yet. Good news as Palm sent out an e-mail to their developer community informing them that paid apps will be coming soon, possibly by the end of March:
The e-mail stated “We are very excited about the upcoming launch of international e-commerce for the Palm App Catalog. To follow up on our announcement in January we want to provide you with some additional information to ensure that your paid applications are ready for international distribution as soon as possible. We’d also like to inform you that in addition to the planned European launch, we will be launching e-commerce support in Canada and Mexico.”
Rogers has joined the other carriers and has officially released the Novatel MiFi 2372, otherwise now known as the “Rocket Mobile Hotspot”. This little gem weighs 81 grams and a total of 5 people can have access to WiFi (within a 30 foot radius). Rogers states “this wallet-sized device slips easily into your pocket and creating your own hotspot is as easy as pressing the power button”.
Sounds good to me! This can be yours on the following price plans: 3-year contract: $49.99; 2-year contract: $99.99; 1-year contract: $199.99 and No contract for $249.99
