StretchBerry You've heard of Pimp my Ride...well...this is Pimp my Berry! CrackBerry Member patrick.waugh posted his vision of the ultimate BlackBerry, dubbed StretchBerry, into the forums today. Patrick is running a ton of apps on his BlackBerry, so you might say this was inspired by the room required to show all the apps his BB is pack'n.

But Think About StretchBerry Being a Reality - more screen real estate than an iPhone, full keyboard, room for 84 shortcuts, Today theme listings at the top AND it's lonnnng enough to be used as a back scratcher! I'm pretty sure this is a CrackBerry Addict's dream come true...

Now for the test - Name as many of the 81 shortcuts as you can! I'm a software junky and I was still a dozen shy of naming all the application shortcuts on Patrick's homescreen. I think we can safely call Patrick an Addict. Click the image to the right or check out his forum post for a bigger and better view. Be honest now, how many did you get?

CLICK HERE to see the full applications list... and be sure to post how many you named right in the comments!

I was thinking about making each of the above a hyperlink to it's download page, but that's just too much darn work for a Saturday night. But most of them are either free apps or are available in our ShopCrackBerry.com Software Store... so search them out! 

Oh, and in case you're wondering where the CrackBerry.com shortcut is on Patrick's Homescreen, it's IN the shortcuts folder (in the browser shortcuts row). Nicely Done Patrick, Nicely Done!! Can't Wait to See Your Next Pimp'd BlackBerry!

Loved the stretchberry--I think that MOST of us "got" that it was supposed to be facetious (sp).....but the part that was cool was the list of apps.....now I am going to go find out how to do that "folder" thing--I am getting more and more apps that I'd like to put in a folder all their own--especially my games.

LOVE this place!
