Still no Google Reader app for our beloved BlackBerry devices, but one solution has popped up that appears to be a good hold-over until an official Google Reader app shows up (or if it shows up). Unread was previously only available for the Storm, but has just been released for all devices running OS 5.0.

Cignias NAO Symphony Music System Review

[ youtube video link for mobile viewing ] There are numerous iPod/iPhone docks on the markets these days, but there are very few options available for BlackBerry users to wirelessly stream music from their devices.

Snaptu For BlackBerry Updated To v.1.2.8

Snaptu, the widget-based application got a version bump up to v1.2.8 from the previously available v1.2.7.

BlackBerry OS Running On A Nokia 5700?

BlackBerry OS Running On A Nokia 5700?

I..really don't know what to say about this. It appears as though the above Nokia 5700 has been frankenstiened to run a port of the BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 8220 OS more specifically. Maxpda is the source of this unruly behaviour and as much as I am appalled, I find myself unable to stop looking at it. Well, best I can say is if it's a fake, they sure did the video of it in action quite well...
