Feels like Christmas.
A quick recap including our quick grades according to general buzz and initial first impressions of details provided. As always not very graphical but we geeks just want the hard facts yea. Before the list here's a quick word from Cherri Chiodo who covered everything BlackBerry at CTIA Wireless this year:
First and foremost, I would like to thank Hayden for the opportunity to attend and represent the Pinstack community. I am humbled ...
The turnout for this year's CTIA was *phenomenal* to say the least. I cannot even guess the number of blackberry users I saw, walking slowly, head down, texting away. The reception I received from the individuals that I met with was so surreal. They all loved Pinstack admitting they browsed frequently.
I look forward to doing reviews of the products below in addition to a few others. Be sure to check out the video messages from some of the creators of the apps including demos. On to our highlights!

Feels like Christmas.
I just wish I could unwrap something!
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~great post and insight. Particularly gives me a feel to what could be hitting us in the UK - many apps are US/Canada only so it'll be good to see what gets a European release
