Instagram Posts on BlackBerry Browsers Fixed and They Look Awesome


A couple months ago we wrote a post on BlackBerryCool about how Instagram posts looked terrible on a BlackBerry browser. It was a strange issue considering how easy it is to render a webpage to be viewed on a BlackBerry. Every website these days formats itself to be viewed on mobile, and the fact that Instagram was ignoring BlackBerry was really strange. It seems the problem has been completely fixed and Instagram looks really great on BlackBerry browsers.

Picasa for BlackBerry scrapped?


BlackBerry for Picasa dumped

Picasa, Google’s picture-organizing and sharing service, was looking to get all cozy-like with BlackBerry back around CES, but has apparently been killed off since. How come? Well, I’ve got a few theories. You might notice that BlackBerry’s Facebook page recently started showing off Flickr for BlackBerry rather prominently. Although RIM’s managed to make nice with the multitude of competing instant messaging services like Yahoo!, Windows Messenger Live, and Google Talk, maybe things won’t be quite as friendly with picture sharing. A more optimistic theory that pops to mind involves the BlackBerry Bold’s picture geotagging feature. I would love to see that fit right into Google’s Panoramio, which would quickly trump Picasa. Where do you guys think the future of picture sharing on BlackBerry is going to lie?

Umundo lets you share video and pictures easily


Umundo is a pretty neat service that lets you quickly and easily share content from your mobile across a bunch of platforms. Obviously something that touts publishing capabilities right from your BlackBerry gets us a little excited. All you have to do is send an e-mail to Umundo, and it will share the file on Facebook, Orkut, Myspace, Hi5, Yahoo, Google, iTunes and even to other mobile users via MMS. If you find yourself taking a bunch of funny video clips on camera-toting BlackBerry, this could be worth a shot – and hey, it’s a free beta, so what have you got to lose?

New BlackBerry IM service offers voice and picture sharing


PalringoJiveTalk currently rocks the multi-platform instant messaging on BlackBerry these days, but I just got wind of Palringo, which not only covers ICQ, AIM, Live Messenger, GTalk, Yahoo!, and a bunch of other popular IM services, but also lets you share voice notes and pictures easily. There’s also a community element to it, where you can join chat groups for mass communication. It’s a free OTA download, though still in beta, and there’s enterprise rollouts available if you’re in the market. Give it a shot, and let us know how it stacks up against your other mobile IM experiences.

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…
