BOLT BlackBerry Browser update, we have unlimited invites

39 Comments

BOLT BlackBerry Browser

When BlackBerry Cool became the first BlackBerry website on the Internet to provide free invites to the BOLT BlackBerry Browser private beta, we never thought so many people would have such rabid interest. After thanking you the readers for providing ‘substantial feedback’ on the initial beta release, Bitstream let us know that an updated version is being pushed to users with BlackBerry-specific enhancements. You can find the full list of enhancements after the jump.

For those that haven’t tried the BOLT Browser yet, we have some great news: the ‘berrycool’ code now has unlimited referrals! So head over to the BOLT download page and tell Bitstream ‘berrycool’ sent you.

In addition, Bitstream has set up an email address for people who want to share their experiences using BOLT and possibly be quoted (with expressed permission) in BOLT’s PR efforts. The address is pr4beta@boltbrowser.com. Bitstream has also set up a support form for those with technical issues at: http://www.boltbrowser.com/support.html. So you have your task readers: download the new version of BOLT, keep providing great feedback, and help make a nifty BlackBerry Browser even better.

More BOLT BlackBerry Browser invites now available, you guys are crazy

UPDATE: WOW, just got word from Bitstream that you guys brought down their servers! They’re upgrading them now for higher capacity, so if you received an error when trying to sign up, wait a while and try again!

When we wrangled the BlackBerry Nation 500 invites for the BOLT BlackBerry Browser private beta yesterday, we weren’t sure how interested you’d be. It turns out that you were very interestedBitstream, makers of BOLT had quadrupled our invites to 2000, and that still wasn’t enough! So after a little bit of negotiating, we’ve gotten them to give us some more invites.

To get your copy of the BOLT beta, you must head on over to their download page and use the following referral code: ‘berrycool’. Do this even if you had already sent a request previously. Bitstream has now automated the request process, meaning you should get an email with the download link much quicker now.

While you’re waiting to get your dirty little mitts on that email, don’t forget to check out our hands-on BOLT browser impressions. Get to it!

Opera Mini 4.2 beta for BlackBerry now available

18 Comments

Opera has released a new version of their popular (read: free!) web browser for BlackBerry. Opera Mini 4.2 features new skins, performance tweaks, increased video capability and notes syncing. Here’s what the folks at Opera had to say about the increase in performance:

Opera Mini 4.2 can use our newly established server park in the US. This means significantly faster page downloads for our users in the Americas and Asia-Pacific region. Users in the rest of the world will also experience faster page downloads since we’ve reduced the load on our other servers.

Head to mini.opera.com/beta with your BlackBerry browser for an OTA install of Opera Mini 4.2 or Opera’s website for a desktop download.

Skyfire mobile web browser is hot!

20 Comments

Here’s a quick video of Syfire’s mobile web browser from their session earlier today. The video quality is poor, but man does that thing look great! Supports ajax, flash, silverlight, runs faster than opera and safari mobile and it’s only in beta. Did I mention it’s free? We’re talking with Skyfire later this week so expect more info to come.
