BlackBerry Cool Best of WES: 2008 Winners

You already heard what the people have chosen, and now to announce what the supposed experts have to say. Like we mentioned in last week’s podcast, it’s a tough call to make with such a wide range of products being shown off at WES. The judges for each category had their own set of standards (as you can see), so the results are bound to be highly subjective. The fact of the matter is every exhibitor at WES had something worth showing off, and these were just some of the few that stuck out in our judge’s minds.

Winners after the jump…

Track your footsteps by GPS

GPSedWe had some fun with Blip, but this looks just about as interesting. Shape’s newest brainchild, GPSed, has launched its beta GPS tracking program, which not only pinpoints where you’ve been on the road, hiking or biking trail, but also allows you to geotag pictures taken with either your BlackBerry or camera using the accompanying Take’n’Pin app. If you’re interested in giving it a shot, you can download GPSed over the air from wap.gpsed.com
