BlackBerry Bonus: TiPb vs. Storm Hands-On

BlackBerry Bonus: TiPb vs. Storm Hands-On

A friend of mine works as a rep for a carrier and so, in the middle of my BlackBerry Round in the Robin, we made a deal: she would let me test drive the Storm and I would let her try out both the iPhone 3G and the BlackBerry Bold (don't tell Kevin!)

Sidebar: She is an avid BlackBerry Pearl user who, disappointed with the lack of current Qwerty hotness on the CDMA side, was very impressed with the Bold. She is also an avowed iPhone hater. Or rather she was. While I don't think Apple's little touchscreen wonder won her over, she was amazed at the apps, especially things like Google Earth. The Storm... suffice it to say she wasn't a fan.

Okay, fine, what was my take? Read on...

State of the Apps: iFart 10K Earn Rate, Private API Debate, Approval Delay Hate

No sooner did Apple flip the switch on Pull My Finger but 14 fart-themed apps have hit the App Store and according to Macrumors, leader of the app pack, iFart Mobile, generated $9198 in one day. I need to quit this blog and go make iDoody, or something (don't tell Dieter!).

Round Robin: BlackBerry Bold Q&A!

[This is an official Smartphone Experts Round Robin post! Every day you reply here, you're automatically entered for a chance to win an iPhone 3G, Case-Mate Naked Case, and Motorola H9 Bluetooth Headset! Full contest rules here!]

Fair enough, the CrackBerry's didn't smack me around as badly as the WinManiac -- those who bothered to read the context disclaimer and understand the point of the Round Robin at least! Ha! And along with the awesome CrackBerry.com forum members who tried to help a poor iPhone n00b out, the commenters added many useful insights and a tip or two to boot! Still some questions were asked and that means there are answers to be attempted... after the break!

Apps for Less: Topple, Voice Dial, Touch Physics

Apps for Less: Topple, Voice Dial, Touch Physics

Well the holidays are right around the corner so why not give our readers one last Apps for Less before the new year.

Now is your chance to grab a very addictive game, Topple [iTunes Link], and you can't complain about the price when it's FREE. This is a limited time offer so be sure to grab it as soon as possible.

How many of you still require hands free voice dialing? Well if Apple will not give you what you want, you always have the 3rd party developers! Enter Voice Dial... [iTunes Link] It may not be 100% perfect, but it's better than what you have already no?

Next up is a little app called Touch Physics. What is the goal of this game you ask? Simply to get the ball from the start to the star. To do this you will need to construct different objects on each level by drawing with your finger and everything is based on real physics. Worth a try, especially for $.99.

Enjoy these great savings!

Note to Developers: Are you a developer and have any apps in the App Store going on sale or that you simply think is a great deal? Contact us and let us know to include it in a future Apps for Less!

TiPb Give Away: Hardcore ElementCases for the Holidays!

The kind folks over at Element Case have hooked TiPb up for the holidays! That's right, they were generous enough to drop off a pack of custom tricked-out iPhone cases not just for us to review -- but for us to give away to you, the best dang blog readers, forum posters, and podcast listeners on the interwebs.

These aren't just any cases, mind you. These are the hardcore high-end rigs of cases. Jeremy's already gotten his hands all over them (and took some time out of his hectic holiday schedule to snap the pics above and below) and he says they're well made and built for gaming, with the special bonus of making sure you don't cover up the speaker when holding them (nice touch!).

Thanks to everyone at Element Case for hooking us up, and stay tuned for your chance to take one of these custom TiPb cases home for the new year!

(To check out their whole selection, head on over to the Element Case Shop).

More pics after the break...

AT&T Buys Unicel, Vermont Gets iPhone

AT&T Buys Unicel, Vermont Gets iPhone

Confession: the US broadcast news networks I get up here in the frozen north come mostly from Vermont with a side of Northern New York. So, lo and behold, I caught part of the Burlington CBS station's teaser last night, and the big news? They're finally getting the iPhone 3G!

It means dozens of new jobs in Vermont and that the heavily-hyped iPhone will soon be here in Vermont. [...] AT&T officials say their products and services will be available at ten former Unicel locations in mid-January. They will honor current contracts for up to a year.

Round Robin: TiPb vs. BlackBerry Bold Final Review

Round Robin: TiPb vs. BlackBerry Bold Final Review

[This is an official Smartphone Experts Round Robin post! Every day you reply here, you're automatically entered for a chance to win an iPhone 3G, Case-Mate Naked Case, and Motorola H9 Bluetooth Headset! Full contest rules here!]

Black and white. Night and day. Left and right. BlackBerry Bold and iPhone 3G. For the penultimate Round Robin, I set aside my multi-touch no Qwerty for Kevin's touch-less Cadillac of Querty's.

And...? I loved it and hated it. How utterly appropriate. Not to be too tale of two-cities about it, but it was both the best of the Round Robin devices for me and the worst. Google's Android G1 tried to do everything but beta'd all of it (give them time though!). The HTC Fuze tried to shellack over Windows Mobile to make it more like the iPhone and -- in terms of usability -- tripped and fell all over itself in the attempt. The Palm Treo Pro, while unabashedly Windows Mobile, was still a touch screen, allowing for some level of direct comparison, and proving just how far behind Windows Mobile's interface has fallen.

But the BlackBerry Bold is a different beast entirely. Direct comparison is impossible. A pager vs. a music player, all grown up and bedecked in smartphone tech. Both devices can do similar things, but their strengths are almost polar opposites, as are the approaches they take in delivering them.

Kevin's already written 7500 words on that, however, requiring few if any from me. So rather than rehash, or duplicate what the previous Round Robin editors have said better before me, I'm going to change it up a bit (yes, again) and look at things from a different perspective. And I'll do it after the break!

Review: Pinger, the Social Dialer for iPhone

Review: Pinger, the Social Dialer for iPhone

It's been awhile since we've heard anything from Pinger, creators of a service that allows you to trade voicemails like they were emails. Their previous offering was interesting but not ultimately useful for most people. Their new offering, a clever iPhone application (iTunes link) that combines a social media aggregator, a dialer, and an IM client is interesting and likely useful for most people. For me, it addresses my #1 gripe about the iPhone. It's also free.

Read on for a review!
