BlackBerry Software Roundup for July 18th, 2008!

At any rate, I've still found quite a few new and cool titles for us to check out. In this weeks' roundup you'll find: New BlackBerry Software: PAC-MAN Fever, WordSearch, Video Caller...

Now this is good for a Friday morning laugh as we head into the weekend... It turns out unbeknownst to us here at CrackBerry.com, some of our stories have been used as anti-iPhone 3G propganda!

Think back to your BB usage... have you ever had a time where your battery indicator shows some juice left, but the device has decided that the Battery is too low for radio use?? I know it's...
