Krusell, a case manufactuer based out of Sweden is well-known for its high quality cases for various hardware including everything from PDAs to iPods. So it is quite fitting that our first case review would be one from Krusell. Today we look at the Handit Multidapt Blackberry 7510 model which has extra pockets for credit cards and business cards.
Mobile Query has built SendFax a program that allows you to send faxes for free from your Blackberry. It works by taking advantage of the TCP.INT project which is a collection of fax servers you may use to send a fax to many locations around the world. Being a free service it isnâ€™t the most reliable service but TCP.INT does offer an email receipt so you can verify if the fax went through. Our first fax request took a total time of 4 hours for the fax to finally get through. Not the most ideal for important faxes but can come in handy for the less important faxes.
To install SendFax point your Blackberry browser to http://mobilequery.com/mq.wml

Access your documents from the palm of your hand and capture work as it happens. Sounds promising! With the proliferation and firm-wide acceptance of BlackBerrys for wireless email, why not also access, open and view documents from the same devices. BlackBerry and NetDocuments users can now view, search, email and access all their documents. An attorney, for example, can open documents linked in an email as a notification is sent from the client who has reviewed documents shared in a secured Extranet, or a secretary or a legal team member has edits to be reviewed.
Here’s a picture of the internals of the 7100t incase you ever wanted to know but were too afraid to open it yourself. Thanks to Vycoh for the picture.
