BlackBerry mania, three new phones and App World 3.0 imminent

BlackBerry mania, three new phones and App World 3.0 imminentThese might be troubled times for RIM, but the BlackBerry faithful are being rewarded over the coming weeks with three new smartphones and a spanking new marketplace.

As well as the arrival of BlackBerry App World 3.0, we’ve got the BlackBerry Torch 9810 and 9860, and the BlackBerry Curve 9360 hitting shelves. Jings.

BlackBerry App World 3.0 promises improved searching, making it easier to find apps, themes and games. There’s also a new share option, meaning you can tell your buddies when you find a great new app. Those on BlackBerry OS 5 or above should get the App World 3.0 update in the next few days...

As for those phones, we’ve got Clove giving us an idea of release dates and prices.

The BlackBerry Torch 9810 (3.2in touchscreen and sliding QWERTY) is expected on October 3, with a price tag of £478.80.

The BlackBerry Torch 9860 (3.7in touchscreen only) is penciled in for September 26, and will set you back £418.80.

Finally, the BlackBerry Curve 9360 (2.44in non-touchscreen display, fixed QWERTY) is also expected on October 3, costing £298.80.

Phew. That’s a lot of BlackBerry action.
