Everybody seems to building applications for the Blackberry platform. Over the weekend, I’ve loaded some fun new games (when was the last time you played Asteroids…er Meteors as it is now called), the new Tello Blackberry Client (way cool… imagine Trillian with the ability to launch a call), and Google Local. With it’s EDGE modem, the 8700R is fast enough that it’s not that much of a time sink to just go get a new app. And on the 8700R with it’s gorgeous color screen, and increased color depth, they look great. Check out this image, for instance, from Google Local. That’s my backyard.
I had been considering switching away from Blackberry to a Microsoft Smartphone device, but not now. The 8700R is just way too nice.
