So like we did with the Bold 9790 we will break down the Curve 9380 specifications. As with the 9790 there are many similarities between older versions of the devices and the new devices.

    The security gurus over at RIM continue to do what they do best, and make sure that every device released by the company is as secure as it can be. Today RIM has announced that its newly released OS 7 devices have reached EAL4+ certification. In short the EAL stands for Evaluation Assurance Level, and is used to grade IT products or systems to make sure that they meet industry security standards.

    Here is the official statement from RIM:

    Waterloo, ON - Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ:RIMM)(TSX:RIM) today announced that BlackBerry® smartphones running on the BlackBerry® 7 Operating System (OS) have been independently evaluated by a third-party Common Criteria evaluation facility and meet the security criteria for evaluation assurance level (EAL) 4+.


    The Common Criteria is an international standard for validating that products meet specific security requirements. Widely respected for its extensive and comprehensive evaluation by an independent third party, EAL4+ accreditation examines a product’s design, software development methodology, and security mechanisms. EAL4+ is the highest level of accreditation under the Common Criteria Recognition Arrangement (CCRA) by 26 countries.


    “Security is one of the most important considerations for enterprise customers and we are proud that BlackBerry 7 OS has earned this rigorous certification,” said Scott Totzke, Senior Vice President, BlackBerry Security at RIM. “RIM is renowned as a market leader in the delivery of secure mobile solutions, and this achievement helps to provide our customers globally with continued confidence in deploying BlackBerry solutions throughout their organizations.”


    As a market leader in the area of information assurance and compliance, RIM is committed to independent, third party security testing and certifications of BlackBerry products. RIM is active in the Cryptographic Module Validation Program in North America, United Kingdom CESG Assisted Product Service (CAPS) and International Common Criteria evaluation scheme. BlackBerry® Enterprise Server has been previously awarded EAL4+ certification and the BlackBerry Enterprise Solution has also been previously approved for storing and transmitting sensitive data by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) as well as government organizations in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Austria, Australia and New Zealand.

    Being late to the party isn't always a bad thing.

    If you live in Quebec, you'll be happy to know that Videotron has finally released the BlackBerry Bold 9900 earlier this month. This is a great alternative to the big three here in Canada, & with a price tag of $189.95 on contract or $599.95 outright you really can't go wrong.

    Will you be getting this device?

    When BlackBerry 6.1 was first mentioned almost a year ago, the original build had mobile hotspot as an included feature. With the updated name/branding change to BlackBerry 7, we were left without the feature being added.

    Several sources recently have posted information of a BlackBerry Torch 9810 running OS 7.1, which seems to now have mobile hotspot as an included feature.

    The amazing folks from bjxiaoc have generously posted a video of mobile hotspot in action on a 9810.

    The Bold 9790 code-name "Bellagio", has been making quite a few camera appearances over the past few weeks. It seems as though there are quite a few people excited about its release. This is understandable as the Bold series have been RIM's "Bread and Butter" since the days of the 9000 back in 2008.

    When the original lineup of BlackBerry 7 devices was announced, I was slightly disappointed to not see a Bold 97xx form-factor announced, as it was pretty much the only form-factor I had ever owned.

    RIM seems to have decided to tweak a 97xx/99xx hybrid device, which will be releasing soon as the Bold 9790. The original design we seen this summer was basically a 9780 with touchscreen & updated specs, but recent leaked images show a new charging port location & buttons similar to Torch 9850/9860.

    These updated buttons honestly make the device look horrendous. Why change something that was great in the first place?

    T-Mobile users can now rejoice as Torch 9810 dummy units are making their way into retailers hands. Looks like we are right on target for the rumored November 9th launch of the Torch 9810. Yes the picture is a bit rough, but it does appear to be branded by T-Mobile. Anyone planning on getting this from T-Mobile?

    Today RIM has officially announced the release of the P’9981, designed by Porsche Design. Initially no one had any idea about what the deal was with this phone, and there were even some leaked photos of the device that popped up a few weeks back. It had to be the ugliest BlackBerry device to date, but we slowly started receiving more and more news regarding the deemed mystery device, and it was even said to be a Bold 9980. Well that was wrong! However, earlier we did report that it was to be released at about this time.

    Here is the official press release from RIM:

    Introducing the Porsche Design P’9981 Smartphone from BlackBerry
    Engineered Luxury Meets High-Powered Performance


    Stuttgart, Germany/Waterloo, Ontario - Today, Porsche Design and Research In Motion (NASDAQ: RIMM; TSX: RIM) announced the elite new Porsche Design P’9981 smartphone from BlackBerry®. Designed by Porsche Design, in collaboration with RIM, the luxury brand’s first smartphone delivers engineered luxury and performance.


    The Porsche Design P’9981 smartphone from BlackBerry is instantly identifiable as a Porsche Design product. The exclusive material choices for this unique smartphone include a forged stainless steel frame, hand-wrapped leather back cover, sculpted QWERTY keyboard, and crystal clear touch display. This customized Porsche Design P’9981 comes with an exclusive Porsche Design UI and a bespoke Wikitude World Browser augmented reality app experience. It also includes premium, exclusive PINs that help easily identify another P’9981 smartphone user.


    “Since 1972 Porsche Design has presented milestone products with iconic style, and the P’9981 smartphone from BlackBerry will be our next landmark,” said Dr. Juergen Gessler, CEO Porsche Design Group. “The pure and distinctive design, coupled with authentic materials and an emphasis on the manufacturing process, perfectly match our philosophy and complement the Porsche Design product assortment.”


    “This collaboration stems from a shared belief that form equals function ,” said Todd Wood, SVP for Industrial Design, Research In Motion. “The Porsche Design P’9981 is a truly modern luxury smartphone, where the timeless style of Porsche Design meets the unmatched mobile experience provided by BlackBerry.”


    Powerful hardware and software
    The Porsche Design P’9981 is built on a performance driven platform that features a 1.2 GHz processor, HD video recording, 24-bit high resolution graphics, and advanced sensors enabling new augmented reality applications. It comes with 8GB of on-board memory, expandable up to 40GB with a micro SD card.


    BlackBerry® 7, the operating system for the new Porsche Design P’9981, includes a next generation BlackBerry® browser with a fast, fluid web browsing experience that is among the best in the industry. It also features Liquid Graphics™ technology, which delivers a highly responsive touch experience with incredibly fast and smooth graphics.

    The Porsche Design P’9981 includes built-in support for NFC (Near Field Communications), which will enable many new and exciting capabilities.


    The Porsche Design P’9981 smartphone from BlackBerry will be available from Porsche Design stores later this year.
    Rumor has it that the device will cost around $2,000 dollars. That's a hefty price for an OS 7 device. Let us know your thoughts, and if you plan on getting one.

    InPulse Smartwatch recently received an update to it's firmware & smartphone app to make it OS7 compatible.

    The smartphone app update includes:

    • Finally, working support for OS 7! Tested on BB 9900 and 9810. Our recommendation: Use your old OS5 or 6 Blackberry to load the latest firmware (3.9.4) onto your watch, then you can begin using inPulse with OS 7.
    • Introducing the ability to download free watchapps right to your watch! Browse the inPulse app to see what is available
    • Be sure to update the firmware on your watch after downloading. Download Apps -> Default Notification App -> Load
    • If you happen to get your watch into a non-working state, you can always revert to factory firmware mode by holding the button down until the display says 'loading...'

    We have already seen pictures of the 9900 in white, but they were never confirmed. Now it has been confirmed as you may now pre-order one from Vodafone. The device actually looks really sleek in white, taking us away from the traditional color black. Nothing new here with the specifications its just the color. Here is teaser video from Vodafone showing off the white Bold 9900:
