Meterberry - Diagnostics For Your Storm!

Meterberry - Diagnostics For Your Storm!

So I was "convinced" to use a BlackBerry Storm for a while. Skeptical at first - I'm slowly adjusting. As I was loading up as many apps as I could find, I stumbled across Meterberry. It immediately piqued my interest and I added it to my list of installs. Once I was fully operational I fired it up and I must say I was very impressed with all the information it provided. Now we all now...

CTIA 2009: Zeemote for BlackBerry Demo

I first saw Zeemote for BlackBerry back at the BlackBerry Developer Conference late last year when it was in its early stages. Zeemote will be launched this summer (first in Europe by the sounds of it) and will enable you to play BlackBerry games using the Zeemote JS1 Bluetooth controller so long as you have the Zee Key app on your device (which remaps your Berry's buttons and trackball to...

CTIA 2009: LogMeIn Rescue+Mobile BlackBerry Demo

Walking through the CTIA Mobile Focus exhibition hall I came across the guys from LogMeIn and had them demo their Remote Support solution for BlackBerry.

Having the ability to turn control of your device over to IT so they can...

A crew from SugarSync was on-hand at CTIA last week, and they gave me a good walk through of their SugarSync for BlackBerry solution (apologies on the video quality - tried out a flip cam at pepcom which apparently doesn't work so well for this kind of thing). If you're not familiar with SugarSync, it's a very powerful and comprehensive solution that combines secure online backups,...

BlackBerry More Profitable For Carriers?

BlackBerry More Profitable For Carriers?

As we reported last week, there is nothing wrong with RIM when it comes to profit margins these days. Somehow, despite the current state of the economy they are not not only showing no sign of slowing down any day soon, but seem to be growing and thriving. But one question was raised over at Seeking Alpha which is something I have been really wondering for a while now. What about RIM makes it...

Call Client - Call Manager for your BlackBerry

Call Client - Call Manager for your BlackBerry

Last time I talked about SimpleLeap Software, we looked at their callback reminder app TalkLater.

It's a very useful tool, especially if you're like me; a hectic schedule mixed with a bit of absent-mindedness. The folks at SimpleLeap recently announced their application...
