This week, we’re looking at bThink from Perceptus, a light program for your BlackBerry designed simply to provide snoozable reminders with direct access to associated contacts’ e-mails and phone. BlackBerrys come preloaded with plenty of personal information management apps, like Tasks, Calendar, and Memopad – that really covers the big bases, and should take care of most people’s needs. That’s why bThink caught our eye; it was trying to bring something new to the PIM table. In a nutshell, bThink lets you create e-mail, call or blank reminders which link up with your Address Book and Tasks.

Josep has noticed that a new edition of BlackBerry for Dummies has been released today, to the jubilation of new BB-users worldwide. I’ve got a few Dummies books kicking around, and they’re all written with clarity, humour and expertise. BlackBerry for Dummies covers the whole slew of basic and intermediate functions, such as e-mail, attachments, the Address Book, MemoPad, Calendar and Calculator, as well as PIN-to-PIN messaging, web surfing and call functions. If you’re interested, you can pick up a copy cheap on Amazon.
After using Empower HTML Mail viewer for awhile, I decided to give BBSmart a shot. It didn’t take long to see why it’s so popular. The image loading in e-mails is quick, the links are well-formatted, and you’ve got some great options for saving templates and turning e-mails into calendar entries or tasks. It’s carrying a beefier pricetag at $24.99, but you certainly get what you pay for. If you’re looking for something a little cheaper and lightweight, Empower is still a solid option.
