The free version does contain ads, but they don't...

Howdy and welcome to the weekly app roundup! Wasn’t it nice of Kevin to share with all of us the BlackBerry Roadmap of 2011?

Re-Review: Fixmo Tools 2.0 for BlackBerry Smartphones

If you’re looking for an application to help both enhance existing BlackBerry awesomeness and bring new equipment to the game, Fixmo needs to be on your list. It’s been...

Update: We reached out to RIM and it does look like these will both be full versions. Tetris will be pre-installed and a "lite" version of Need For Speed will be installed with the full version downloading when you have Wifi coverage.  I was wondering what games we would see come preloaded on the BlackBerry PlayBook at launch. While I was sort of hoping for a souped up version of...
