Black Berry Mobiles

BlackBerry is a line of mobile e-mail and smartphone devices developed and designed by Canadian company Research In Motion (RIM) since 1999.
BlackBerry functions as a personal digital assistant with address book, calendar, memopad and task list capabilities. It also functions as a portable media player with support for music and video playback and camera and video capabilities. BlackBerry is primarily known for its ability to send and receive (push) Internet e-mail wherever mobile network service coverage is present, or through Wi-Fi connectivity. BlackBerry has the ability to use wireless data efficiently while using less power than other phones, three BlackBerrys use the same wireless spectrum as only one other smartphone. BlackBerry is a powerful messaging phone with a large array of messaging features in a smartphone today, including auto-text, auto-correct, text prediction, support for many languages, keyboard shortcuts, text emoticons, push email, push Facebook, Twitter and Myspace notifications, push Ebay notifications, push instant messaging with BlackBerry Messenger, Google Talk, ICQ, Windows Live Messenger, AOL Instant Messanger and Yahoo Messenger; threaded text messaging and a customizable indicator light near the top right of all BlackBerry devices. All notifications and conversations from applications are shown in a unified messaging application which third party applications can access. BlackBerry's push gives BlackBerry devices a long battery life. All data on the phone is compressed through BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS).
According to him, Blackberry Storm 2 (it’s not yet decided if that is it’s trade name) will come to market (in Netherlands) at the end of this year or beginning of 2010. It will lose carrier exclusivity at least in Netherlands and will be available to KPN subscribers. (Original Storm was exclusive to Vodafone). And it will address the biggest problem many Blackberry fans had with original Storm – bad experiences typing on clickable touchscreen – by offering a “new way of typing”.
My guess here is that Storm 2 will add a slide out QWERTY keyboard to a full touchscreen device.
Another interesting tidbit revealed by Mr. de Banchet was that Blackberry will take a breather from releasing any new additional phone models in 2009:
