    PinStack Week in Review: Smartphone News, Reviews for June 5, 2009


    TGIF! Hope everyone had a GREAT week! The big (GIANT) news coming from the Smartphone (well, BlackBerry) world is the long anticipated launch of Facebook 1.6. We saw it delayed a week ago and finally, today, as of 6pm left coast time, it is available for download from Expect to see some reviews up this week! The user interface matches that much like the Twitter clients. Nice job FB guys! Also, if you are a Verizon customer sporting a Storm, your prayers have been answered! Verizon finally released an official upgrade to the 9530 Storm OS -- version For those of you who are still running the original (present company NOT included) try for the wireless update. If that doesn't work, I've heard that using DM and "checking for updates" link works too In addition to my WIR below, I included a mini theme round-up. I know its been awhile since I did a big one, so I promise to in the coming weeks. Until then, you can click the device category links and be taken to the respective theme forums! Be sure to thank all of our theme builders for sharing their themes! We love ya!

    Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker: Cool Smartphone MP3 Accessory
    I ran across this very cool looking gadget while surfing the net this afternoon. It's the world's first floating waterproof bluetooth speaker. Just pair it up with your BlackBerry, iPhone, or any other bluetooth enabled smartphone or mp3 player, start your playlist and plop this baby into the pool. Just float around, splash, relax, have fun, and listen to your favorite tunes while your precious smartphone lies safe, dry, and out of the water. Here is more from the website: "Finally, you can lay around in your swimming pool all day and never worry about missing a call because this floating Bluetooth speaker will be let you know! Simply pair this speaker with your cell phone and let it stream all your mobile phone's MP3 music, then when a call comes in the music will stop playing to let you know that you have a call coming in.

    The importance of being immediate - Google Mobile App now for Nokia S60 sma
    Google Mobile blog: As a user experience designer I like to take every opportunity to better understand the issues that get in the way of people making the most of their mobile phones. The development of Google Mobile App for Nokia S60 smartphones, which launched today, has provided an opportunity to address three aspects of an issue we hear about on a regular basis: immediacy.

    Updated Slacker Radio App for iPhone & BlackBerry
    Slacker Radio apps for BlackBerry and iPhone have been updated! The BlackBerry version is now 2.0.2. Of course the app is still free and there is the option to upgrade to Slacker Plus for $3.99 per month which will give you unlimitted skips, no ads and more. Other than dramatically faster skips, it doesn't specify what the other improvements are for BlackBerry. The iPhone update mentions faster song to song transitions, since there is no mention of this for BlackBerry I am assuming the lag is still there but I am testing it out to see if there has been some improvement.

    Nobex Station Lists Expanded, Now Includes ESPN Stations
    Nobex Radio Companion let me know that they have made quite a few additions to their playable radio stations. First our Canadian friends got many of their stations added a few weeks ago and now for all you sports fans they bring you ESPN radio. Here is more from the email: "Thought you’d like to know that Nobex Radio Companion just added ESPN stations from all across the US. You can even listen to the National ESPN sports stream. If local sports is your thing then you can tune in to cities such as Dallas, St. Louis, Philadelphia, Boston, Cleveland and more to hear sporting events taking place in your area.
