GotVoice joins ISV Alliance


GotVoiceGotVoice announced today their membership in the BlackBerry Independent Software Vendor Alliance. The ISV Alliance is RIM’s way of getting all the great BlackBerry software developers under their wing, which means better BlackBerry apps for all. Man, if only Apple could show the same love, huh?

RIMWe know some of you have been giggling in anticipation of BIS 2.4. Well, MiBlackberry has spotted a rumor that 2.4 is coming out tomorrow, September 15th.

Web-based ringtone conversion


CellseaBlackBerrySync dug up a handy little web app by Cellsea which lets you upload audio files right from your desktop or through an existing URL, and cut it up for BlackBerry ringtoney goodness.
