Verizon Gets Ready to Bid Farewell to Storm 9530, Curve 8330, 8830 and Pearl Flip 8230?!

Business Card Reader for BlackBerry Smartphones

Business Card Reader for BlackBerry Smartphones

My Card. Your Card. His Card. Her Card. Ouch! Paper cut. With business cards being passed around like playing cards, it’s difficult to keep them organized.
