Engadget Gets Some Hands-On Time with the Bold!

The boys at Engadget finally got some hands-on time with the BlackBerry Bold and like me, they came away "happily impressed"... To start things off, the keyboard felt easy enough to use, at least easier than the 8830 we're often forced to use for work email. Gone are the sharp protrusions, replaced with a nice flat surface upon which to click. Of note was the Bold's user interface...

Review: Poynt Beta

Review: Poynt Beta

Where can we point you today? Oh how I love Beta applications, you can never go wrong with the cost (or lack thereof). It’s also like having a virtual child and being able to watch them grow. I’m not sure how much growing Poynt (or MyPoynt) has to do, because it’s already won its way into my BlackBerry heart. For those who don’t know what Poynt is all about, it’s about helping you find...

We mentioned it's availability last week (on the 18th), but the 8820 still hasn't popped up on the Rogers website (the...
