Sorry, This post is a little late but Sprint has launched the BlackBerry Curve 8530 on their nation wide network. The new Curve brings the fancy new track pad to Sprint and is also a nice refresh to their dated 8330. The 8530 runs for $49.99 on a 3yr term and after the $100.00 mail in rebate.
A early holiday treat has been dropped off by the people from Nobex Technologies, a radio app that works with all BBs, even the 9700. It allows people in any part of North America to listen to their favorite live radio stations. The best part is that it’s free, there is also a premium version available for $20 which gives you some extra content and is a nice way to give back to Nobex for releasing a VERY solid app. Now I do issue one *warning*: it is a data intensive app which
should not be taken for granted by those out there with a 500mb or less data plan. For everyone else that has MBs to spare, you’re in for a treat, it’s very fast, operating on both Wi-Fi and cellular bands, it gives you radio EVERYWHERE, which most of us don’t want to pay extra for. In short, try the app, you’ll like it.
Ever wonder were all your money went at the end of a month? You know you got paid but can’t remember what you spent it on, this is where Expense Recorder Pro would come in handy. This app allows you to track all your spending, whether it be a stop at the coffee shop or that latest big screen TV. The app is currently available at the MobiHand app store for $4.99, if you have this app let us know what your thought in the comments.
BlackBerry themes have really started to take off since the introduction of themes to app world, but what about the people who love the stock look of their device and dont want to change things that much? Most themes are crazy radical changes to the BlackBerry UI and personally im not a fan of that, so thats why im enjoying the Smart Dark Zen Theme. The zen design is the standard BlackBerry layout of icons but this theme just gives it a more classy look. Currently on sale for $2.99 until Jan. 31 at the mobihand app store for those who like the stock theme but still need a change.
Rogers just dropped their price of the white BlackBerry Bold to $.99 on a 3yr term. So if you were holding out for a price drop its now available.

Many peaople are reporting ether a complete outage of BIS service or a delay in their email delivery From what I hear this is a Canadian and American BlackBerry issue so hang tight. Are you haveing BIS issues? Leave a comment.
Take a min to think, your out shopping for the holidays all the parking lots and garages are filled with hundreds of cars some may even look like yours. You go shopping for a few hours then come back to get your car only to find out that you have forgotten were you parked. Sound familiar? Well that why VQ CarFinder war created to prevent this from happening, it uses your GPS location to track were you parked your car then when you need to find it it shows you were you left it. The app is currently on sale at MobiHand for $4.99. I bought mine and I can tell you this will save me from wondering around the lot.
One thing that the iphone had ove the Blackberry was Paypal app, you know the ability to send and recive money on your hand held device. But no longer will that hold, as of today all BlackBerry users can head over to App World and download their verry own paypal sidekick. I installed mine lastnight and kile the options it brings to your BlackBerry. Though i find it very simple because all you can do at the moment is check balances check last transactions and thats about it the app is still new so im hoping we see an update to provide more options. But overall the app has a nice user interface and brings another reason to why BlackBerry.
Salomondrin has gotten his hands on a photo of a branded BlackBerry Essex 9650 and its looking sharp. We all know what happens when we see branded pre-released devices, it means the release must be right around the corner we will keep everyone posted.
Rogers the largest canadian cellular provider launched the GSM BlackBerry curve 8520 about 3 months ago and until now they had it exclusively. Mobilesyrup has been dropped a little bit of info that Bell mobility would be getting their hands on a CDMA version on December 26th. So if this was the device you were waiting for then you may want to ask santa for a rain-check.

I just recently went to the Bold 2 9700 and was trying to tether with my mac and it’s not easy entering VPN codes, username and passwords that my carrier Reps don’t even know. So i sit at my desk searching on the internet for a fast and easy way to tether. I find a few that don’t work but then i stumble across TetherBerry and decide to give its 7 day trial a test and to my surprise it just works no passwords no nothing, install and go. The app works on mac and pc so head over to mobihand and tether with ease. Available for $49.99
