StudentDocket v.1.0.809 Reviewed!

Student Docket

Some of you may remember Simon’s review of StudentBerry, a premier tasking application designed specifically for students with BlackBerry devices. To be fair, some of you may not.

Now called StudentDocket, this application aims to help students organize their tasks, projects and assignments, allowing users to view them in an eye-pleasing, well-organized fashion. For all you students out there, this is a must-have, and since it’s being sold in a bundle package with Cram for a limited time (you can still get the two together for a reasonable $24.85), there’s no better occasion to pick up these two academic tools in time for next semester.

Student Starter Pack for back-to-schoolers

Comments

Student Start Pack for BlackBerry including Cram and StudentDocket

StudentDocket and Cram have cleverly paired up to offer a great package to those heading back to school in a few short weeks. After taking a good look at StudentDocket and having been amply impressed by Cram, I can say these two apps are must-haves for any academic that means business. StudentDocket helps you organize classes, assignments, and larger projects in an easily-navigable and clean interface, while Cram lets you create your own quizzes for on-the-go testing. Sharpen your pencils, charge your BlackBerry, and head on over here to grab the Student Starter Pack for a mere $25. Just remember, the you only have until August 31st. to enjoy the deal.

BlackBerry Pearl 8220 from Rogers

There’s been some speedy solidifcation of the BlackBerry Pearl 8220 prices that were leaked earlier this morning, with sources confirming a $49.99 promotional deal on the handset with a three-year plan, which will eventually go up to $99.99. Rogers reps will be pimping this one out with a $45 student plan which will include

  • 450 Weekday Minutes
  • Unlimited Evenings and Weekends starting at 6pm
  • MY5 Canada-Wide (Unlimited talk, SMS, and MMS to any five numbers in Canada)
  • Unlimited Local Incoming Minutes
  • $5 off Value Pack for duration of contract


The plans, which need to include e-mail and a Value Pack, total to $75 and up, which, sad as it may be, is standard for Canadian students.
