In a move that is equal parts admirable and bleak (but mostly bleak), BlackBerry has chosen to valiantly fight the imminent march of time. Instead of trying to build the next Big Thing, the company is going back to what it knows works best: 2011. Say hello to the Bold. Again.

RIM, the maker of BlackBerry, was absolutely destroyed yesterday in the stock market. But that's just part of the story. RIM is screwed.
Samsung's Galaxy S phone on Verizon, BlackBerry's Bold 9700 on T-Mobile and AT&T and Sprint's Sanyo Zio are all free this Friday from Best Buy.

BlackBerry users who are stuck with CDMA-based carriers (like Verizon) now have another option in the form of the Bold 9650, replacing the Tour and its janky trackball with an optical trackpad. (Also, hello Wi-Fi.)
In today's Remainders: your noggin! It's what chess champ Garry Kasparov used to defeat increasingly sophisticated computer opponents; it's what the contestants on Jeopardy consult for answers (or questions); it's the site of the next X-Prize challenge; and more.
RIM has already been moving away from the trackball to the trackpad, but this new image of a yet to be released device shows neither. All signs point to the first touchscreen BlackBerry Bold.

The BlackBerry Bold 9700 in a word? Compact. It's efficient, almost cramped, like a Japanese car from the 80s.

Here's the first official shot of the 9700 (codenamed Onyx), T-Mobile's first 3G BlackBerry, which could arrive as early as November. T-Mobile says it'll support UMA Wi-Fi calling (as part of the carrier's HotSpot@Home service), visual voicemail, and corporate email.
Boy Genius takes us on a tour of BlackBerry OS 5.0, which is a tasty combo of the current Bold OS and the Storm's, but really fast.
