Will Verizon launch Blackberry Storm on Nov 3rd?

leave a comment »

Could Verizon be launching Blackberry Storm on November 3rd? That is a possibility, based on the internal training document that Engadget manage to snag. According to this document, employees are required to complete the Blackberry Storm feature training by November 2nd. So, conceivably, Verizon could launch the Storm on November 3rd. However, I think the November 8th might be more realistic. Also, in that document, employees are required to complete their Touch Diamond training by December 3rd. So, Touch Diamond could launch few weeks before Christmas.

    Is CDMA Samsung Omnia in the works?

    with one comment

    It appears that Samsung is preparing two derivatives of its popular Samsung Omnia i900 for the North American market. PhoneArena reported today that FCC has just approved the i910 and the i907 from Samsung. The i910 appears to be similar as the i900 with CDMA support alongwith Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. This could mean that the phone is headed for Verizon Wireless. The i907 is a slightly different model but it could be a Samsung Omnia derivative headed for AT&T. Neither the operators nor Samsung have confirmed these rumors. You can read the Omnia review here and here. You can read the comparison to HTC Touch Diamond here.

    WSJ reviews HTC Touch Diamond

    leave a comment »

    Wall Street Journal yesterday reviewed the HTC Touch Diamond and in the process confirmed that it was headed for Sprint and also the price $250 (after $100 mail-in rebate) with 2-year contract. Now, we knew that the Touch Diamond was headed to Sprint and was due out in September and possibly in red. We also knew that Best Buy will carry it and its price will be in $299 range. However, per Katherine Boehret of AllThingDigital blog at WSJ, Sprint price will be lower than Best Buy’s. However, this is the first hand-on review of the device. Katherine is not impressed with the device and according to her the device

    hide the outdated (Windows Mobile) operating system well enough or often enough for a user to want to buy a whole new mobile device

    Best Buy to sell HTC Touch Diamond?

    leave a comment »

    David Ciccone over at MobilityToday is reporting that Best Buy will begin selling HTC Touch Diamond with 3G support starting September 29th in the USA. No pricing has been announced yet. You can read more about the Touch Diamond here and here. As I had reported earlier, Sprint was rumored to launch the phone this past Monday 9/2, which has not happened yet. So, I am not sure how credible the Best Buy launch date is. Also, the pricing for Sprint is said to be $299 with contract and $549 without contract. I would expect Best Buy to match that.
