TGIF Everyone! Some of you addicts may already know that next week (Monday, the 19th, to be exact) TMO business customers will have the chance to pick up a shiny new 8900 Curve, unless of course, you've been hiding behind a massive "beginning of the year" workload or living in the wilds of the Amazons. This will be TMO's first BIG offering since the launch of the 8320 (I know, they have the flip, but that wasn't a highly anticipated device either). Consumers will have to wait until February (the 11th is the rumor), but hey, we are already in the middle of January...that time should fly by very quickly . Personally, I'll be waiting impatiently for the ATT release, rumored before summer.

PerfectStorm theme makes your iPhone look like the BlackBerry Storm
I personally was sick of iPhone themes for the BlackBerry a year ago. But everyone else seems to LOVE them! Well iPhone users, turn around is fair play Here’s a cool theme for BlackBerry-to-iPhone switchers. The so called PerfectStorm brings the BlackBerry Storm look and feel to the Apple iPhone. And while I don’t personally like Storm’s icons, I guess some of you dig the idea of having their iPhone look like RIM’s flagship all-touchscreen device. Once the theme is installed, you’ll see that most of the user interface has been changed to resemble the Storm. This includes icons, lock-screen, calculator, media player, camera, dialer, sounds, Safari, and even a keyboard skin. As it’s always the case with iPhone themes, a jailbroken device is required. Then (once iPhone is set free), simply search for “PerfectStorm” in Cydia or Installer, and take it from there.
