cerience.gifEver wish you could go 2.0 and upgrade yourself? Yeah, that’d be pretty swell. Thankfully, the tech industry isn’t waiting on us to evolve and turns their efforts to 2.0’ing some of your favourite applications and such (roundabout way of getting to the point, I know), and RepliGo Professional is a fine, fine example of 2.0 gone good.

EQO Communications teams with BlackBerry


eqo_134x82.gifI like to call Persia from time to time on Skype. No reason, really. I just like to check in, see how the Persians are. Thankfully now, I can check in whenever I feel the desire.

Currently supported on the Pearl, 8700 series, 7100 series, 7200 series, and 7500 series. Another pretty great reason to be a BlackBerry user.
