Most Canadian banks have mobile applications available for multiple platforms, including Android, Apple's iOS, and BlackBerry, so its strange that RBC hadn't launched their own. Luckily, iPhone and BlackBerry users can now download and install the RBC application, that allows users to view account balances, transfer funds, pay bills, use Interac Money Transfers, and even locate RBC branches and ATMs. The application was first launched for iPhone users, and has now been made available to BlackBerry users as well. The BlackBerry version is available for the Bold 9700 and 9000, Curve 8900, 8530, and 8520, along with the Tour 9630. To get the application for iPhone, visit App Store, or to get it for BlackBerry, simply head to

We recently let you know that Bell would be launching the BlackBerry Curve 9300 sometime in the near future, however we were unsure of the exact availability date. Thanks to leaked screenshots from internal systems, we can let you know it's safe to expect this new device from RIM on August 12th, only a couple short weeks away. The Curve 9300 (code-named Kepler) is nearly identical to the existing Curve 8530, but supports 3G connectivity over Bell's HSPA network. Still no information on pricing, but we doubt it will be too expensive since it isn't a very substantial upgrade.

Videotron and BlackBerry have recently created a login page for BlackBerry e-mail services, which can only mean a near-future launch of a BlackBerry handset on the Quebec network. A few months ago, KOODO Mobile did the same thing, with the launch of their first BlackBerry device (the 8530) happening just last week. Unfortunately there is no word yet on an exact launch date or which model it will be, but more information should be available soon.

Along with the BlackBerry 8530, KOODO will also be releasing two compatible data plans for users to choose from - BlackBerry Social, and BlackBerry Connect.

The new packages are expected to launch May 25th of this year, coinciding with the launch of the BlackBerry 8530.

The 8530 is a CDMA device, and features a 2.5" (320x240) display, 2MP camera, and optical trackpad for navigation.

Today it was officially announced that KOODO Mobile will be adding the BlackBerry 8530 to it's product line-up sometime later this Spring. While this doesn't come as a surprise, it definitely confirms suspicions after KOODO/RIM made available to the public last week.

The BlackBerry Curve 8530 is a CDMA/1xEV-DO device featuring an optical trackpad, full QWERTY keyboard, 2.5" (320 x 240) display, and Wi-Fi. It also has a 2MP camera, and has 256MB internal memory, expandable up to 32GB via microSD.

The BlackBerry Curve 8530 will be the first smartphone offered by the "budget-conscious" carrier, though there is speculation that more will be offered in the coming months, especially with upcoming HSPA rollout.

It seems as though Koodo/RIM have developed a website for BIS registration, in what looks to be preparation for an upcoming product launch. It's speculated that Koodo will begin offering the 8530, and at least one variation of the Pearl sometime in the near-future.

Currently, Koodo does not offer any standard data packages to it's customers, but that should change along with the addition of some Blackberry devices to it's catalogue. Unfortunately, no word yet on device or plan pricing.
