Flurry appeals to BlackBerry envy


Those who’ve yet to shell out for a BlackBerry or any other smartphone can feign their phone’s intelligence with a new application. Based on the email capabilities of the ‘Berry and other smartphones, CNET News reports “Flurry” turns any phone into one of those heralded devices.

“Once you run through the simple setup on the site, it sends a link to your phone that directs you to a personalized download. Based on the demo, it looks like a very strong email (and RSS reader) application that has a sensible user interface…”

What’s that saying? Always imitated but never duplicated? Yeah, file this report under that.
