Hey, remember that hot looking Sigma DP1 we’ve been yapping about for ages? Well if you can’t another second to put your buyin’ hat on, the handsome 10-megapixel shooter is available for pre-ordering on Amazon right this second. For just $799.99 ($200 less than the list price), you can finally achieve the satisfied sleep of a Sigma DP1 almost-owner. Sure, you’ll still have to wait till March 25th for the goods to drop, but you can probably entertain yourself by pre-ordering a bunch of accessories and booking all the models you’re going to shoot when the camera arrives.
While rumors of a touchscreen BlackBerry are nothing new — and hey, we’ve even got ourselves a patent to go on nowadays — it’s still encouraging to hear promising hints from the likes of RIM co-CEO Jim Balsillie. When asked if RIM would release a touchscreen version of the BlackBerry, Balsillie sounded optimistic. “For sure we’re looking at all kinds of different device packaging and presentation,” he said. “I think getting religious on packaging is not the way to go, it’s really user preference-oriented.” Whether that means we’ll be seeing an iPhone look-alike, or something completely different in the near future is yet to be seen, but at least we do have word that HSDPA is showing up in a BlackBerry near you before long: “Certainly going to HSDPA is something that’s very important to us in the near term,” said Balsillie.
