We have a great BlackBerry Deal of the Day to close out the month of August. Tether for BlackBerry, one of our top 5 selling BlackBerry applications, is on sale for $24.97, 50% of the regular price. I will go on the record and say that if you have a BlackBerry and you have a laptop, PC or Mac, Tether for BlackBerry is simply a must have application.
Why pay a monthly fee to your carrier to use their BlackBerry tethering service when you can just purchase Tether for BlackBerry one time and use the data connection your BlackBerry already has to get your laptop onto the internet? At the 50% off price of $24.97, Tether for BlackBerry will cost you less that 2 months of tethering service from your wireless carrier, a few days of internet access in a hotel, or even several hours of service while stuck in an airport.
Tether for BlackBerry is an awesome BlackBerry application that I personally use and recommend to any BlackBerry user with a laptop. You don’t, however, have to take my word for it… Tether for BlackBerry offers a free trial. It will take you less than 10 minutes to download, install, and configure Tether so just test it out for yourself. Don’t forget, however, that the Deal of the Day ends at midnight tonight, so, if you want to get Tether for BlackBerry for just $24.97, 50% off the regular price, you have to purchase today…
It was just over a month ago we let you know that HootSuite for BlackBerry was going into private beta and now that the beta is underway, images of the application have made their way on to the web. As those of you that use Hootsuite know, the application is much more than just a Twitter/Facebook client, but, more of a social media dashboard. From the look of the screen shots, Hootsuite for BlackBerry will be as well.
Hootsuite for BlackBerry is still in closed beta, however, you can sign up here to try to get in one they open it up to more users.

An internal document detailing upcoming end of life dates for various Verizon mobile devices has leaked its way onto the web. Of particular interest to RIMarkable readers might be the EOL of the BlackBerry Curve 9530 on September 16th, followed by the EOL of the BlackBerry Storm2 9550 on October 10th. This gives Verizon subscribers looking to upgrade their current BlackBerry device a good indication of when the BlackBerry Curve 9330 and the rumored BlackBerry Storm3 might become available…
Even though the BlackBerry Curve 9330, RIM’s CDMA variant of the BlackBerry Curve 3G, has yet to be officially announced, I don’t think it comes as any surprise that Research in Motion is working the device. It looks like a BlackBerry KB article (which has since been pulled) mentioned the Sprint BlackBerry Curve 9330, particularly a problem with the device. We are guessing that RIM pulled the KB article because the would like to officially announce the BlackBerry Curve 9330 before they start detailing issues with it publicly.
Trillian for BlackBerry is out of beta and now available in BlackBerry App World. Unlike the beta which was free, the official release of Trillian for BlackBerry has a $4.99 price tag.
There is still no official word on when the BlackBerry Torch 9800 will launch on Bell, however, Bell has launched a sign-up page where you can register to receive more information as it is made available.
