BlackBerry Bold 9790 and BlackBerry Curve 9380 announced

BlacBerry Curve 9380

Today RIM announced two new additions to its lineup of smartphones. The QWERTY-packing Bold 9790 and the full-touch Curve 9380 both run on BlackBerry OS 7 and feature HVGA+ (480 x 360 pixels) screens.

The BlackBerry Bold 9790 comes with a 2.45″ touchscreen display, a 1GHz Marvel Tavor MG1 processor, 768MB RAM, 8GB internal storage, 5 megapixel camera with VGA video capturing and a microSD card slot. The Bold 9790 is well geared connectivity-wise too – Wi-Fi, 3G with HSPA, GPS and even NFC.

The compact new Bold comes with a full four-row portrait QWERTY keyboard and an optical trackpad. The phone runs on the RIM’s latest BlackBerry OS 7 and will hit the stores in the following few weeks.

The BlackBerry Curve 9380 is the first Curve ever to come with a touchscreen. It measures 3.2″ in diagonal and, as we said, comes with HVGA+ resolution.

The rest of the specs are not quite impressive though – the new Curve runs on a 806MHz processor and has 512MB RAM and 512MB internal memory expandable via the microSD slot. The connectivity package is quite good, though, featuring Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G with HSPA and NFC capabilities.

The Curve 9380 does not have a physical keyboard but still keeps the optical trackpad. The phone is also expected to hit the shelves in the next couple of weeks.

Blackberry Bold 9700

The fresh Bold 9700 will not feel like a new device at all. RIM kept the same shape and design as always, the minor differences compared to its Bold 9000 predecessor keeping it as “common” as possible. For people that have never used a Blackberry device, as well as for the fans, Bold 9700 might look like the perfect business phone. As a matter fact, the most important aspect is undoubtedly the QWERTY keypad. It’s got the same layout as its Bold predecessor, with 35 key placed in four rows. At first glance, the keys may look a little bit overcrowded, but RIM found a way to make them more responsive, by putting some edges on each. This made the keys pretty easy to click, even if you have big thumbs, and limit the number of typos, as well as improving the texting process speed.

Blackberry Bold 9700 measures 109 x 60 x 14 mm and weighs 122g (including battery), which makes it pretty balanced. The back of the phone has been covered with a leather-like material that offers users a better grip over the device. Sadly, the material doesn’t cover the entire back of the gadget, only the hood covering the battery. The nice display of the smartphone has been a little bit shrunk compared to its Bold 9000 brother, and now measures only 2.44-inch. Between the TFT screen and the QWERTY keypad, you will notice four useful keys: Accept and End keys, Menu key and Back key. One of the minor changes that I found is the replacement of the usual trackball with a touch-sensitive optical trackpad.

It features a wide range of communication packages, such as: HSDPA 3.6 Mbps, Wi-Fi, EDGE and GPRS class 10. Fans of the brand can now benefit from any of the above mentioned connections when needed. The integrated browser seems to have been upgraded, as now it is by far the best you can get on a Blackberry device. It works flawlessly, loads pages rich in graphics pretty fast, while panning and zooming are excellent. Use of the touch-sensitive trackpad to control the cursor proved to be wonderful.

Blackberry Bold 9700 is a quad-band GSM (850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900) and tri-band HSDPA (850 / 1900 / 2100 or 1700 / 2100 / 900) smartphone, which features GPRS, EDGE, and HSDPA. Other connectivity tools include Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP and the microUSB for PC synchronization (charging too). The call quality is good enough, but not impressive. The GSM signal is very good on the EDGE network, as well as on WCDMA.

LiveOffice Announces Native Support for BlackBerry

Leading provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) email archiving, email hosting and email continuity solutions, LiveOffice announced on Tuesday the launch of a new BlackBerry application meant to offer a seamless integration with its LiveOffice Personal Archive and LiveOffice Discovery Archive. According to the company, the new service enables users to access archived emails, attachments, SMSs and PIN-to-PIN messages, along with call-log files, directly from their BlackBerry handset, no matter where they are.

Continue reading

The company also notes that the new solution can be easily deployed by system administrators, either via a web link or through the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. As soon as the application has been downloaded, the handset’s home screen will display the LiveOffice icon, and users can simply click on it to log in with their LiveOffice Personal Archive credentials.

Advanced searches of all messages and call-log files that are stored in their individual archives can then be performed, with no other hardware or software installations needed.

“According to our research, 76 percent of professionals always take their mobile devices with them on vacation. With much of corporate America working ‘out-of-pocket’ this holiday season, many workers still expect to send, receive and search email as if they were in the office. In addition, many of them have zero tolerance for email downtime in or out of the office,” Michael Osterman, principal analyst with Osterman Research, said.

“LiveOffice is arming these professionals with the technology they need to remain fully productive on their BlackBerry devices, whether they are searching for an email from a year ago, looking for an important text message from last month or trying to find a number they dialed just two weeks ago.”

What LiveOffice can offer to BlackBerry users includes:
- Advanced Search and Restore Capabilities, with access to emails, attachments, SMS text and PIN-to-PIN messages, as well as call logs;
- Uninterrupted Access to Messages, as Personal Archive for BlackBerry is meant to prove a backup and continuity solution for email;
- Better Legal Discovery Preparedness, since all messages, attachments and call-log files are indexed and stored in a central repository
.

LiveOffice Personal Archive for BlackBerry and LiveOffice Discovery Archive for BlackBerry are already available for purchase. Those interested in them should contact LiveOffice for pricing information.

Musim Blackberry

Ketika saya berjalan-jalan di mal-mal kota Bandung, beberapa saat yang lalu saa liat beberpa orang terutama kaum remaja sedang dengan santainya menggunakan blackberry sebuah smart phone yang memang memiliki banyak fasilitas hampir seperti PC/notebook tapi tidak selengkap mereka…untuk urusan nirkabel memang barang yang satu ini sudah jangan ditanya lagi :-). Sekilas coba kita liat sejarah dari si mahluk dengan nama Blackberry ini.

Blackberry pertama kali diperkenalkan pada tahun 1997 oleh perusahaan Kanada, Research In Motion (RIM). Kemampuannya menyampaikan informasi melalui jaringan data nirkabel dari layanan perusahaan telepon genggam mengejutkan dunia. Blackberry pertama kali diperkenalkan di Indonesia pada pertengahan Desember 2004 oleh operator Indosat dan perusahaan Starhub … weh!. Perusahaan Starhub merupakan pengejewantahan dari RIM yang merupakan rekan utama Blackberry. Di Indonesia, Starhub menjadi bagian dari layanan dalam segala hal teknis mengenai instalasi Blackberry melalui operator Indosat.

Indosat menyediakan layanan Blackberry Internet Service dan Blackberry Enterprise Server Pasar Blackberry kemudian diramaikan oleh dua operator besar lainnya di tanah air yakni Excelkom dan Telkomsel. Excelkom menyediakan dua pilihan layanan yaitu Blackberry Internet Service dan Blackberry Enterprise Server+ (BES+). BES+ adalah layanan gabungan dari BES dan BIS, ditujukan bagi pelanggan korporasi sehingga pelanggan dapat menerima dan mengirim email kantor yang berbasis Microsoft Exchange, Novel Wise, Lotus Domino dan 10 akun e-mail berbasis POP3/IMAP melalui telepon genggam. Sementara, operator Telkomsel hanya menyediakan Blackberry sebagai bagian dari layanan korporasi dengan Blackberry Enterprise Server. Pada awalnya, layanan Blackberry hanya bisa diakses melalui smartphone Blackberry saja. Tetapi seiring dengan berjalannya waktu, ketiga operator ini telah menyediakan fasilitas Blackberry Connect yang memungkinkan Blackberry Internet Solution diakses melalui smartphone jenis lain seperti Nokia (N-9500, N-9300, N-9300i, E61), Sony Ericsson P910i, M600i, Palm Treo, Dopod, dan lainnya. Sejauh ini, fasilitas Blackberry memang baru dimanfaatkan oleh para pengguna pribadi dan korporasi, belum merambah hingga bidang pemerintahan dan intelijen seperti di negara-negara lain.

Sudah kebayangkan gimana tangguhnya fitur-fitur si Blackberry itu, dengan murahnya koneksi internet nirkabel saat ini mendorong pesat juga penggunaan si blackberry ini, kita bisa setiap saat mengakses internet dimana saja dan kapan saja. Alhasil banyak orang sambil berjalan atau sedang apapun bersama si blackberry ini, suatu kebiasaan yang baru atau hanya semusim saja yah! seperti fenom iPOD dulu, kalau saya melihatnya ini mungkin fenom sesaat dimana kemampuan orang sekarang sudah bisa menjangkau untuk membeli blackberry dan ditunjang pula koneksi yang murah…:-). Sementara pengkonsumsinya adalah kalangan menengah keatas.

Mungkin disuatu masa nanti jika kita bisa membawa sebuah gatget kecil dengan fitur se-lengkap notebook atau pc dan free koneksi dimana saja plus harga yang murah dan bahkan bisa di cicil “hauhauhua”, itu pasti menjadi suatu yang diburu dan menciptakan trend di masyarakat kita. Dan si Blackberry jadi genggaman anak-anak sekolah SD/SMP atau tukang becak, sementara yang SMA atau yang kuliah dan bekerja sudah membawa gatget super canggih ini. ….waduh!

Bagai mana menurut anda? Teknologi memang terus berkembang tetapi akankah ia mengatur dunia ini dan mengusasinya? dan sejauh mana teknologi bisa mengungguli fenomena ponari sweet yang sedang heboh saat ini? “nah loh!”
