To break any misconceptions of BlackBerry and to prove that it is still relevant today, RIM has released a series of BlackBerry Challenge videos. This time around they have gotten celebrities like Christina Millian to test out their keyboard. In the video, they are proving a point that the Bold 9900‘s physical keyboard is much more practical to use even in extreme situations.
Definitely interesting to watch and from the looks of it, there will be more episodes to come. For more challenges, head over to the BBM challenge.
One more episode after the break with Greyson Chance.
Earlier on we’ve seen some sample pics of the upcoming Sony LT29i and now it was recently spotted in the wild. From the blurry pic, the new device codename “Hayabusa” seems to be utilising on-screen buttons just like the Galaxy Nexus.
According to XperiaBlog, the LT29i will come with a 4.55″ screen pushing 1196×720, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor that could possibly be a Qualcomm S4 MSM8960 and a new improved 13MP camera. Other rumoured specs include a 16GB on board storage, microSD card support, 1GB of RAM, NFC, LTE and a 1,700mAh battery.
The LT29i is expected to be launched sometime in July with a higher price tag than the Xperia S.

A new Sony mobile device has made an early appearance, rumoured as the entry level Sony ST21i that carries the codename “Tapioca”.
The device is said to carry a Qualcomm MSM7227 800MHz processor, 3.2″ HVGA display (320×480), 512MB of RAM and a 3MP camera. It comes with a 1,460mAh battery with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich installed. Spec and screensize wise, the ST21i is a model below the Xperia neo L which was announced recently with Ice Cream Sandwich installed. In terms of design, it does have an elevated display design like the Xperia Sola but we won’t expect it to come with the Floating Touch feature.
