It seems RIM just can’t catch a break right now.

Reports are emerging that devices using the latest BlackBerry OS are failing to turn after being left to charge overnight.

BlackBerry Messenger has been in the news for all the wrong reasons recently but a new report suggests it could soon be used for sharing songs as well as riot updates. CNET and the Wall Street Journal both claim to have heard from multiple sources that RIM is in talks with the big four major labels to add a music sharing service on top of BlackBerry Messenger.

Rather than an all-you-can-eat Spotify-style streaming affair, the rumoured BlackBerry Messenger music service will apparently offer subscribers a stash of 50 songs at a time which they’ll be able to listen to on their phones and share with other BlackBerry users via BlackBerry Messenger. The BlackBerry Bold 9900 is in the frame as the first device to get access to the BlackBerry Messenger music features.

Adding new features to BlackBerry Messenger makes sense as its the platform’s biggest unique selling point but the idea of such a limited offering doesn’t sound thrilling. We assume the Kaiser Chiefs won’t get a look in either…

In the trio of BlackBerry 7 handsets that RIM revealed last week, the BlackBerry Bold 9900 was definitely the best of the bunch with build quality that bested the new BlackBerry Torch 9810 and BlackBerry Torch 9860 models. It’s good news for BlackBerry fans then that Vodafone has put the BlackBerry Bold 9900 up for preorder with a promise that it’ll arrive next week.

The BlackBerry Bold 9900 will set you back £41 a month on a two-year contract if you want to get the handset free. Drop to the next lowest price plan (£39 a month) and it will cost you £99 with a 2 year contract. Vodafone is promising a delivery date of August 16 if you sign up today. If you’re enamoured with hammering out emails on a good solid keyboard, then the BlackBerry 9900 could well be worth nabbing.
