    Hey there everyone,

    I'd just like to clarify that the BlackBerry version of ShoZu is coming soon and you can put your name down to be the first to know when it's ready over at

    We've spent this week on the RIM booth over at CTIA Wireless in Las Vegas demoing the upcoming release to a completely captive audience! It was awesome and we can't wait to announce the full release version soon which we are working hard to cram even more features into than the one we have been showing.

    Thanks for your interest and stay tuned :-)

    Hopefully its low on the memory use. All these sweet applications means I'll have re-pick and choose what will be on the BlackBerry. More memory is becoming quite serious!~via BB (
