If you haven't upgraded your old 4.2 DM, you have fallen behind. Desktop Manager 4.6 was officially released by RIM on Monday to some mixed reviews from our very own stackers. Be sure to check out this thread regarding the upgrade. Also from the RIM downloads, another official 4.5 OS release: 126.96.36.199 for the 8700 series. You can find the latest OS for your device here.
Are you set on getting yourself a Bold and you don't want to wait any longer? You can PRE-order one from TigerDirect for a measly $649.99 USD (I wonder if the 'bill me later' works ). Telestra announced this week that they will be offering the Bold to all business customers for free, with a release date of 'late September'. And from Orange Dolphin, Pink Pearl 8120 + an Eee PC for free, I'm sure with certain restrictions, of course.
With school just around the corner (for my kids the corner was last week), CRAM for the Blackberry was released just in time. With Cram, you can create, import, share, and study for tests on the go, using your Blackberry.
Pocket Informant announced last week they would be releasing a Blackberry compatible version very soon. Pocket Informant is the only full featured Personal Information Manager for the BlackBerry that provides an Agenda, Day, Week, and Month Views alongside powerful Task and Contact views. If the Today style themes don't do it for you, this application will!
News from the T-Mobile site showed they will be getting 3G (in selected cities) by the 1st of October and launching a new 'Sunset Red' 8320 ... it looks a little orange'er red than the 'Crimson 8310' from ATT.

apmartin gave us another stellar review, this time on the Privacy Screen Pro by Case-Mate. At first glance, you may think that this is just another screen protector. But look further and you can see (or not see ) that once you apply this to your bb, NO ONE can see the contents of your screen unless they have the bb in front of them and at a certain angle. VERY VERY cool product and a great review!
The theme builders are still kicking out some crazy themes. Remember to check out the download section for tons of theme building goodies (icons, meters, buttons, etc). Also from the download section, hundreds of FREE applications, for both desktop and OTA download.
I purchased my first BB because I wanted instant email anytime/anywhere. My addiction to BB started with my addiction to email and being connected, 24 hours a day. A survey, by the NY Daily News, showed that New Yorkers check their mail, more than anyone else. Hey, I live in San Francisco! (which happens to be #5 on the list)
Have a GREAT weekend!
This is a great article/summary, Cherri. You may have another career in your future as a journalist/reporter.
