Do you want to know things like how fast your battery drains, or when you are losing memory, or even the temperature of your devices battery? well now you can with MeterBerry the all in one system utility app for BlackBerry. Currently the app sells for $3.95 at Mobihand. I have been using the app work about 3 weeks and I must say its help me find what apps were causing memory leaks and this now means less down time. So try it out, you will be surprised on when you’re losing device memory.
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
We have more coming but just to give everyone a taste, here is a photo of the brand new BlackBerry Essex running a slightly older OS. But hey we have the device everyone is waiting for, the CDMA Bold equivalent.

Mobihand has the app for $0.99 so head over and get your self the OTA.

The team at crackberry.com have found some evidence that the new pearl 9100 may be containing a wifi N receiver instead of the usually G. N will give BlackBerrys a faster and stronger Wifi connections which will come in handy with the new mobile web browser to hit in 2010. So lets cross our fingers and hope this is true.
Just received my Telus BlackBerry Storm2 9550 today and I must say I have fallen back in love with the RIM touchscreen device. The new Storm is a complete overhaul and you can tell, the Storm2 is a great improvement but I dont think it’s were it needs to be to compete in the touchscreen market, There is one issue i have with this phone (and the last storm), why does in need to go in landscape in the home screen? I really dont need to have my icons in landscape. But hey, watch the video and decide for your self.

Slowly but surely the BlackBerry App World is launching in more and more markets, with the latest being Australia and New Zealand. The App World launched about a year ago with mixed results from both the media and consumers, but fast forward about 12 months and we have a slightly more grown up App World now with thousands of apps and themes. With all the changes I can see why the countries that don’t have it yet are excited when they get App World. Take a look at the press release from RIM.
BlackBerry Press Release:
“BlackBerry App World makes it very easy for our customers to discover and download a wide variety of applications for their BlackBerry smartphone,” said Adele Beachley, Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand, Research In Motion. “BlackBerry App World provides a fantastic new resource and enhanced experience for customers and an equally exciting business opportunity for RIM’s partners.”

The past few months have been a long hard battle for the new Canadian cellular provider Wind. Wind, which is the operating name for Globalive has had a hard last few months because of a ruling by the CRTC saying that the company has to much foreign ownership. This new cellular provider was making claims that they would be competing with the big three Telus corp, BCE Bell mobility and Rogers communications, this is a bold statement but they have the coverage, rate plans and devices that could put them neck and neck. Wind will be carrying a few of RIM’s flagship devices the Bold 9700 and Curve 8900 with unlimited voice and data plans to go with them. As of today December 11, 2009 the Canadian Government has ruled against the CRTC and is allowing Wind to enter the canadian cellular market immediately, though i feel they are to late for busy holiday season.
