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...

Introducing the Rogers BlackBerry 8820; Free Pearl!

With the 3G iPhone coming to Rogers on July 11th and the BlackBerry Bold hopefully launching sometime before or shortly after that date, the timing on this one seems a little bit strange. Rogers has their reasons though, and is launching (has launched?!) the BlackBerry 8820. We mentioned it's availability last week (on the 18th), but the 8820 still hasn't popped up on the Rogers website (the...

BerryShack got its hands on some new leaked BlackBerry KickStart photos.
