For a while now we’ve been hearing of some BlackBerry 7 smartphones just dying. Most of the time the dead devices are after the device has been charging all night. Well a RIM spokesperson has confirm the power issue with this statement:

A RIM spokeswoman confirmed that a “limited number of customers have reported an issue where their devices will not power on.” She said the company is “actively working on a software update to resolve this issue.”

The dead device issue seems to happen around most of the newer BlackBerry 7 smartphones, including the Bold 9900, 9930, and Torch 9850, 9860, etc. More details to come if we hear from RIM about it…
