You would not believe the number of times I am asked what other celebrities use BlackBerries every time I post about a celebrity using a BlackBerry. Lets just say that it happens enough for me to dedicate an entire category here on RIMarkable to celebrities that use BlackBerries.
That being said, Celebrity BlackBerry Sightings is born. I do need your help however. If you know of, or ever come across a picture of a celebrity using a BlackBerry or even a story about a celebrity using a BlackBerry, please let us know. Think of this something like GawkerStalker but different. We aren’t trying to track celebrities down. We just want to know if they use a BlackBerry.
Charlotte, North Carolina based SunCom Wireless and Research in Motion today announced the availability of the BlackBerry 8700g at all SunCom Wireless stores. The new BlackBerry 8700 offering will run on SunCom’s GSM/GPRS EDGE network.
The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) today announced that Research in Motion President and co-CEO, Mike Lazaridis, will give the opening keynote address at GLOBALCOMM, TIA’s communications marketplace and summit taking place June 4th thru the 6th in Chicago.
Mike Lazaridis has been a major force behind the wave of mobile innovation that has produced global efficiencies for companies and dramatically enhanced connectivity for consumers and business professionals,” TIA President Matt Flanigan said. “One of the major themes of GLOBALCOMM is ‘global communications driving global commerce 365 days a year’, and RIM’s BlackBerry platform is a leading example of the 600 plus TIA member companies making that theme a reality. We’re excited to have him kick-off our event as GLOBALCOMM’s opening keynoter.
Tom Cruise uses a BlackBerry 8700c to stay in touch with with his sweatheart mother-to-be Katie Holmes. Russell from BBHub has a couple of screen captures of Tommy Boy using it during his interview with Diane Sawyer last week.
If you head over to T-Mobiles’s website you will see that the BlackBerry 8700g is now available. All I can say is “It’s about time”.
It looks like the BlackBerry 8700g will cost $399 with a $50 instant and $50 mail-in rebate when you activate your device with a qualifying plan. The nice thing about T-Mobile is that they are one of the few carries to offer 1 year plans.
For all the folks in Waterloo, Ontario who think up all the new features that come out in next-generation BlackBerry devices, I have a request. Allow me to talk on the BlackBerry and send & receive email at the same time.
This request may not seem all the important to BlackBerry users that don’t fly all that often, or when they do, have the luxury of taking direct flights. For those of us, however, that have to fly out of regional airports, almost always having to take a connecting flight, a BlackBerry that allows you to talk while pulling down email would be a thing of beauty.

RIMarkable readers, I need your help. I am looking for a really good BlackBerry case, or skin as some would call it, for my BlackBerry 7130e. I have some special needs so not any old case will do.
I do not want anything with a belt clip as I always stick my BlackBerry into my pants pocket. I don’t want anything bulky either. If fact I am not sure that the perfect BlackBerry case for me would even be considered a case. It would be more like a skin that protects the screen and the edges of the BlackBerry from getting all scratched up while in my pocket.
If anyone has any suggestions on what I should take a look at, please leave a comment.
Well, it appears that BlackBerry 8700g from T-Mobile is available and from the looks of this picture is actually shipping, however, we still haven’t heard an official announcment from either T-Mobile or Research in Motion.
There are rumors floating various message boards that Sprint is going to release their version of the BlackBerry 7130 sometime this month. I haven’t been able to confirm this however, Sprintusers forum member Walkie Talkie User has posted a list of all the new phones coming out on Sprint in Q2 and Q3. Low and behold the BlackBerry 7130 is listed and is supposed to come out in April.
