WhiteSmoke is an English writing solutions provider that has launched a unique BlackBerry app that corrects grammar, style and spelling mistakes for BlackBerry email users. The grammar checker in the WhiteSmoke app is based on unique NLP (Natural Language Processing) technology, which we’ve never heard of but at least sounds cool. The app provides a style checker that offers alternative words and phrases for common stylistic errors as well as a contextual spell checker which distinguishes between thousands of commonly-confused words such as: then~than, were~we’re and lets~let’s.

BlackBerry OS 4.6Who needs OS 4.5 when you can have OS 4.6? Of course, you’re going to have to wait until the BlackBerry Bold is released to get it, but we’re all going to buy one anyways, right?

We’ve got our hands on a top-level feature listing of OS 4.6 (due 2nd half of ’08) and it doesn’t seem to feature anything we didn’t already know about, but it tells us more about what we did. New stuff? Almost too much to name… The BlackBerry Browser will feature increased support of web standards, like AJAX and CSS 2.1, spell check is now continuous (finally!), files can now be downloaded via the browser… you’re just going to check out the pics yourself and tell us what you like the most.
