BlackBerry Bold 9780 Now Out There

Research In Motion (RIM) has gone official with the BlackBerry Bold 9780, the first Bold smartphone to be released with BlackBerry OS 6.

The Bold 9780 is a revamped version of the Bold 9700 and looks similar to its predecessor. However, it boasts a five-megapixel camera, 512MB of RAM and BlackBerry OS 6.
The latter means it will have integrated social networking and an app that brings all your social feeds together, universal search and a better mobile web browser and media player.

Like the Bold 9700, the Bold 9780 has an easy to use QWERTY keyboard and optical trackpad. It also supports 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity and boasts GPS for location-based applications and geo-tagging.

Carlo Chiarello, Vice President, Product Management at RIM, said: “We are very excited to introduce the BlackBerry Bold 9780 featuring the new BlackBerry 6 operating system.

“This new model builds on the highly refined mobile experience that BlackBerry Bold users already know and love and delivers a wide range of enhancements including a rich new user interface, a fast and powerful WebKit-based browser, broadly improved communications and multimedia capabilities, an incredibly useful Universal Search feature and a high quality 5MP camera.”

3G Coverage Reaches Mount Everest!!!

A Nepalese mobile phone company has launched 3G service in the Mount Everest region, the highest point in the world, the company said Thursday.

The company, Telia Sonera which operates the N-cell mobile service, told journalists in Kathmandu that they had set up a 5,200 metre high station for 3G service in the Everest Base Camp in the Khumbu region.

“We also aim at reaching out to 90 percent of the Nepalese population by the end of 2011,” said the company’s president, Lars Nyberg.

The service should make it possible for climbers to communicate with the base camp on Everest and the rest of the world.

The only means of communication so far for mountaineers has been satellite phones.

Windows Phone 7 Means No Fring App Development

Windows Phone 7 may be the sexiest new mobile operating system Microsoft has released since, well, Pocket PC 2000. But while it has a slick new interface, an excellent new browser, and other compelling features, it lacks some of the features Windows Mobile users have grown used to over the past decade. That includes copy and paste support, multitasking, and easily removable storage. Developers are also discovering that the tools Microsoft offers for writing third party apps have some interesting limitations.

For instance, developers cannot write apps that have full access to the camera on Windows Phone 7 handsets. As a result, Fortune reports that the developers of the popular augmented reality app makers Layer will not be building a version for Windows Phone 7. Likewise, Fring, a company that offers voice and video chat for the iPhone, Android, Symbian, and other platforms won’t be able to make a full featured WP7 version.

It’s possible that Microsoft could issue an update eventually that will add support for third party camera apps. After all, the company has already promised that copy and paste support will arrive next year, so clearly someone at Microsoft is working to fill in the blanks. But this seems like a pretty big omission at a time when camera-based apps are big business on other mobile platforms. Right now, third party apps an take photos with the camera… but that’s about all they can do.

On the other hands, most reviews I’ve read of Windows Phone 7 point out that taking pictures on the platform is easier than on pretty much any other type of smartphone. Microsoft requires manufacturers to include a dedicated camera button on their phones, so all you have to do is click the button to open the camera app and click it again to take a picture. It’s just as easy as using any digital camera.

5.3 bn Phone Users By End Of This Year

The world will have 5.3 billion mobile phone subscribers by the end of the year, the International Telecommunications Union has predicted in a new report, publicised at its annual conference in Guadalajara, Mexico.

The report said that mobile phone networks are already available to over 90 percent of the world’s population. Mobile phone penetration in developed countries is 68 percent, a saturation level higher than any previous technology.

Internet access is also exploding, the report found. The number of internet users has doubled over the past five years and will reach 2 billion by the end of 2010. An estimated 1.6 billion people have home internet access, up from 1.4 billion people at the end of 2009.

But there’s still a huge gulf between the first and third worlds.

By the end of 2010, 71 percent of the population in developed countries will be online by the end of the year, compared to 21 percent of the population in developing countries.

While in developed countries 65 percent of people have access to the Internet at home, this is the case for only 13.5 percent of people in developing countries where Internet access in schools, at work and public locations is critical.

Regional differences are significant: 65 percent of Europeans are on the Internet, compared to only 9.6 percent of Africans.

iPhone Beats BlackBerry For Sales

Smartphone sales have risen 78% since a year ago, with sales of Apple’s iPhone overtaking RIM’s BlackBerry, according to Strategy Analytics.

Apple sold 14.1 million iPhones while RIM sold 12.4 million BlackBerry phones during the July to September quarter.

World leader Nokia sold 26.5 million handsets and kept its lead in the newer smartphone market.

Touchscreen and other component shortages failed to curb the sales surge.

Other smartphone makers collectively sold 24.1 million handsets.
About half of these were made by Sony Ericsson, with Samsung and HTC catching up fast.
These three increasingly use the expanding Android system.

RIM’s growth rate of 46% was its fastest ever, but Apple’s growth far outstrips its rivals. Sales of its iPhone almost doubled.

RIM’s Jim Balsillie has questioned the validity of the sales comparison, saying its fiscal quarter ended on 28 August, while Apple’s ended on 25 September. He says September is a month in which sales are typically stronger than in August.

Nokia smartphone sales were still strong, rising by 61%, but Strategy Analysis says Nokia’s share of the smartphone market is at a low of 34%.
