    PinStack Week in Review: Smartphone News, Updates & More!

    Advertisement





    TGIF Everyone! It's been a long week for me personally. My 8220 became possessed and my 8310 decided to commit suicide by jumping into the toilet (long story, but yes, the water was clean ). Now, I am the proud owner of a new Bold. While the size deterred me in the beginning, I am actually digging it now. I have severe carpal tunnel and I have found that using the larger device doesn't irritate it as much as say the flip. I do have to say that with the enhancements that Hayden has included with the new WAP design, surfing mobile PinStack is soo much better on this device.

    Finally!! Thanks so much Hayden and Cherri. I've been wanting this for a while now it makes it easier to go and find things that I've dl'd from previous WIRs.

    Cherri, welcome to the Bold life! You'll love it I'm sure. (I've also noticed that the device you use tends to get the most theme love from you. So I'm really happy with your new device.)
