BlackBerrious Maximus

BlackBerrious Maximus (Or, how far can you push this thing?!) It is no secret that I am attached to my BlackBerry - too attached.

Video Walk Through: BlackBerry Bold Web Browser

The BG posted up a video walk through today of the BlackBerry Bold browser in action, which should be running software that's very close to (if not) final release form. Watching the video, it seems a LOT of the browsing is done over EDGE (hence why it's so slow...I hope!), with the WiFi getting turned on in a few spots. Thoughts? Reactions? Reserve judgement until it's in your hot little...
