Back at WES 2009 at the beginning of this month, one of the solutions to get a lot of attention was Gwabbit for BlackBerry (see our first post on it here). Whether you like the name or not, Gwabbit is a pretty handy tool for those in business who get a ton of emails on a regular basis and are lazy when it comes to converting those contacts to address book entries. Gwabbit scans your emails for signatures and contact info and automatically does the job for you! It's now officially available, so you can read on for all the press release details below.
