BlackBerry Cool Roundup for the Week of February 8th

Comments

The biggest news this week is probably centered around the official BlackBerry Twitter client. RIM let a select group of bloggers and community members test out the app in its very first beta stages. The app has a long way to go and whoever designed the app should reconsider the layout as it’s very cramped. The Twitter client also doesn’t support basic elements like lists or multiple accounts, which is something the BlackBerry client really needs. That being said, should RIM even be in the consumer app business?
