BlackBerry Cool Roundup for the Week of February 8th

Comments

The biggest news this week is probably centered around the official BlackBerry Twitter client. RIM let a select group of bloggers and community members test out the app in its very first beta stages. The app has a long way to go and whoever designed the app should reconsider the layout as it’s very cramped. The Twitter client also doesn’t support basic elements like lists or multiple accounts, which is something the BlackBerry client really needs. That being said, should RIM even be in the consumer app business?

BlackBerry Cool Roundup for the Week of January 18th

Comments

It was a long week for the BlackBerry Nation. Some of my favorite highlights include our two contests, one for the PrivacyStar app, the other for an Epik case. In the app department, foursquare made the headlines by releasing their official client and one of my favorite iPhone developers, IUGO, launched 2 of their major titles for BlackBerry. In the news, the BlackBerry Curve 8330 got an official OS 5 update from Boost Mobile of all places. Regardless, we’ll just delete that vendor.xml file and get to work downloading. Hope you have a great weekend everybody!
