Rubik's Cube for BlackBerry now available

Growing up I used to sit down with my Rubik's cube every night and try to make my way through it.

BlackBerry 6 has improved upon that but, since BlackBerry 6 thus far is limited to one device that doesn't really help the majority of users out there right now. Camera Plus has a nice fix for us all....
