Official BlackBerry Storm 9500 and 9530 Documents Leaked

The sneaksters over at Boy Genius Report have somehow gotten their hands on an official Powerpoint presentation of the soon-to-be-released BlackBerry Storm,

We just got our hands on a ton of documents detailing both the BlackBerry Storm 9500 and BlackBerry Storm 9530. Bear with us as we comb through them, ok? In the meantime, check out some awesome slides from an internal powerpoint presentation. They detail every aspect of the device, from typing to phone calling, media syncing, to web browsing — we’re sure you’ll like them.

BlackBerry Storm Gets Cut And Paste



Though the iPhone may have the edge in design and aesthetics, the BlackBerry Storm does have something that iPhone owners have been craving for for years; cut, copy & paste functionality. So, how does one go about performing such a task on the Storm? It’s simple. Just place one finger at the beginning of the area where you to copy and then slide over the text with another finger to highlight the entry. After that, go to Menu, select Copy, and all you have left to do is to just Paste it. I’m not too sure if this function is available in Nokia’s 5800 XpressMusic phone, and if it’s not, then this is the first time cut, copy and paste has been incorporated into a full-touchscreen device other than Windows Mobile-based phone. Maybe this will serve as an example for Apple on how they can likewise implement the whole cut, copy & paste feature on their iPhone. Unless, of course, they really have no intentions of integrating such a function on their mobile phone, then that would just be a crying shame.

BlackBerry Application Center Could Give App Store A Run For Its Money

This weekend was HUGE for leaked info on the BlackBerry Storm (thanks BG!). But while all the new Storm OS eye candy has been sweet to look at and filled in some gaps on how the device's OS will function (like copy and paste functionality), none of the latest info posted has been all that mind-blowingly new for us BlackBerry Addicts. Let's just say we saved the best for last.

Enter the BlackBerry Application Center. What you're seeing now is a first look at RIM's initial response to Apple's highly popular on-device iPhone App Store. Aimed to launch on the the BlackBerry Storm's version 4.7 operating system, the BlackBerry Application Center will allow the user to find, browse and install/upgrade 3rd party BlackBerry apps hosted by carriers. The Application Center will serve as the main interface on the device between the user and the carrier offered directory list of downloadable applications and will provide the user with an up to date list of applications available for download, along with description and marketing information about each application. The complete Application Center solution will consist of a device side application and a server backend hosted by RIM that the application will interact with to retrieve up to date application list of applications hosted by the carriers.

Pretty cool huh? Keep reading after the jump for more images and Application Center features and info.

BlackBerry Application Center Features
  • The Application Center will be available on 4.7 Storm devices and will be designed for the Storm touch screen UI.
  • Carriers will be responsible for hosting the application data and sending updates to the directory to RIM.
  • The main application screen will provide the user with a list of all applications that are available for install from the particular carrier for the specific device model and OS version. Incompatible applications will not be displayed.
  • The main screen will provide the user the ability to quickly browse the application list, then view the available information about each application in a detailed description screen which shows the logo and full description. Installation will occur with one click (launches the web browser).
  • The user will be able to access the Options > Applications screen from within the App Center (allowing the user to delete applications directly from within the App Center).
  • The user will be provided with various status info: date the app list was most recently updated; notification that updates are available; option to reapplication list was completed, etc.
  • Since the download and installation will be handled by the browser in this first release, the Application Center will not be capable of restarting the application / download intelligently.
  • The Application Center will automatically check for updates daily.

BlackBerry Storm delayed

According to new rumors Verizon is not releasing the BlackBerry Strom on November 14th. This rumored delay is actually on a rumored release date as Verizon did not officially set any release date yet for the Storm.
According to Gizmodo the delay is because of a software issue.

Verizon has over the last week increased the communication about the BlackBerry Storm. I not sure if this rumor is valid. I still have hopes that the BlackBerry Storm launches this week.

The rumor also includes pricing of the Storm to be equal to the Apple iPhone 3G with $199 for consumers. Business customers can even hope for prices below $100.

More BlackBerry Storm News.
