USB Powers the New Touchscreen Blackberry Storm

I’m a big Blackberry fan and yesterday I received a notice in the mail for the long awaited touchscreen Blackberry.  It’s finally making the grand enterance.  Coming out in about 1 month is the Blackberry Storm.  This new touchscreen is a direct competitor to the iPhone and a nice addition to the RIM product lineup.  After all, they’ve been behind for about 1 year.

The Blackberry Storm will be offered by Verizon in the US, has four front panel buttons and is powered by USB.  For me, I like the four button navigation and sleek look of the Storm.  What I’m a little concerned about is the touchscreen typing.  I’m afraid nothing will compare to the Quirky keyboard I currently use on my World Edition.  I’ve tried the iPhone and it’s a nightmare, I’m hoping the Storm will be a little better. I couldn’t dig some details such as price and whether the Storm has a camera or not.  The image shown had some criticism that it was photochopped, but it looks identical to the official Verizon notice I received yesterday.

Loopt Coming Soon to the iPhone 3G

Wish you knew where your friends and family were at all times? Have you heard of Loopt yet? Loopt is a mobile phone application that enables users to spy on see the location of their friends on an interactive map (see image below). The application also allows you to message friends in your general area and setup automatic alerts to notify you when friends are nearby.

In the last few months, Loopt has published several BlackBerry versions of its software for all major American cellphone carriers including T-Mobile, AT&T, Alltel and Sprint. Loopt also demonstrated an Alpha version of their software for the 3G iPhone at the 2008 World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC). You can sign up to be notified when the full iPhone version of Loopt is released here.

If you have a Jailbroken iPhone, then the function and features of Loopt might sound similar to Twinkle. Twinkle is a native Twitter client for the iPhone that pairs your GPS location with your Twitter posts. Twinkle also gives you the ability to add images to your Twitter Tweets. But whether or not you use Loopt, Twinkle or Twitter.. it’s not any fun unless all your friends are also using the service. methodshop Continue Reading
