    PinStack Week in Review: Product Updates, Free Downloads and MORE!

    Advertisement



    I know we are all very anxious sitting on the news that the US release of the Bold is just next week, not to mention that come Wednesday morning we will have a new President (well, sort of) but I am thankful that this week has been quiet.

    Its been a little over a week since I switched from the 8310 to the 8220. I can say that aside from re-acclimating myself to SureType has been the only challenge. I figured out that Google Maps KNOWS my location, so no missing the internal GPS -- or the telenav subscription (note to self, call ATT to cancel that ). I hope BSE comes out with an external skin for this baby soon, as I can only do so much protecting (I did manage to get the old pearl skin cut to fit the internal screen).

    New Applications

    Qik Announces Alpha video streaming service for BlackBerry Smartphones
    Qik, a free service that lets you stream live video to the Internet from mobile devices, today announced alpha support for BlackBerry devices. Using the BlackBerry Pearl 8120 or 8130, or the BlackBerry Bold users can stream live events to their friends at home and even chat with them in real time as the video is broadcasting. Curve and Pearl Flip owners are out of luck for the moment, but Qik promises support for these devices very soon. To use the new service you'll need BlackBerry OS 4.5 or higher.


    Napster Mobile Expands Availability to More Than 13 Million AT&T Customers

    If you are looking for immediate protection for you Blackberry Flip, this might help:

    A little pricey, but it will keep you flip protected.

    Great review as always. Were almost there on the 4th, for the Bold and President. We have been waiting forever... lol

    The MyBoxTone Expert program is good also.

    It's a sample, to test, but not for real use, unless you don't mind the big SAMPLE in your face.
