Introducing the New BlackBerryCool On-Device App SuperStore

Comments

The newest version of the BlackBerryCool on-device App Store has launched and it’s officially a SuperStore. The app store features 4 main categories including Apps, Themes, Games and Accessories. With a single click, you can enter the store and see the Deal-of-the-Day, bestsellers, specials, new products, browse by category, and search. This is a huge update as themes and apps are no longer grouped together, making the browsing experience much more enjoyable.

Once you have downloaded the App Store, no need to sort through software depending on your device. The app store automatically detects your device, and only serves you applications available for your model. The BlackBerryCool SuperStore also features, for each product type, a new “top grossing” product list. This means higher-priced products that sell relatively fewer units can earn a spot on the top-sellers lists. Other improvements to the store experience include some major performance enhancements.

Stay tuned because tomorrow morning we announce a HUGE contest to celebrate the official launch of the store.

BlackBerry Cufflinks for the Tuxedo-Wearing BlackBerry User

Comments

blackberry_cufflinks

BlackBerry Cufflinks are a pretty awesome accessory but they would be even more awesome if they were made out of pure platinum. I could see myself wearing these if I was either Jim Balsillie, or a millionaire eBay seller who sold unreleased devices (not like those guys are rich). Fifty dollars for the pair is a little much for a party gag but I’m sure someone is buying. Also, why make it out of 8800s? They should be Storms.

BlackBerry Presenter Review: A Little Lag and A Lot of Potential

I have the latest accessory from RIM called the BlackBerry Presenter: a means of displaying PowerPoint presentations from your BlackBerry to a projector. The way it works is fairly simple. To get started, you do the following:

  • Download the Presenter app to your BlackBerry.
  • Connect the Presenter to a power outlet.
  • Connect your projector to the Presenter.
  • Pair your BlackBerry to the Presenter.
  • Open a PowerPoint file and in the menu section select “Present”.

After using the device with several different types of PowerPoint presentations, I can say that this accessory had some serious drawbacks, but also more potential than any other accessory RIM has ever made.
