Twitter for BlackBerry


Five years ago today on the 21st March 2006, a man named Jack Dorsey sent the first tweet. Today Twitter is growing at an incredible pace, with an incredible 140 million tweets sent per day.

I have been informed that BlackBerry is the number one Smartphone for Twitter. There have been in excess of 6 million BlackBerry Twitter downloads to date, revolutionising the way people share and interact. The Twitter for BlackBerry app can help make tweeting easier and more intuitive – so you can literally tell the whole world what is on your mind.

A fully featured and fully integrated Twitter app for BlackBerry Smartphones which ticks all the boxes. The app notifies you with new direct messages, tweets or mentions and works alongside your BlackBerry Browser and camera, so it only takes a moment to post a link or upload a picture. Plus, you can follow friends, search for a topic of interest, edit re-tweets, and find users quickly by typing @usernames.

Twitter for BlackBerry is available to download for FREE from BlackBerry App World

HTC 7 Pro Review

HTC 7 Pro

I have been using Windows Phone 7 for some months now but here in the UK we have only had one method of text input and that is with a touch screen. Not anymore though. The HTC 7 Pro has arrived and brings us an alternative, a slide out QWERTY keyboard.

Now, although I am a BlackBerry user I did use the HTC Touch Pro 2 for a year so I am no stranger to a horizontal keyboard. So I set myself a challenge. To write all the text for this review on the 7 Pro.

How did I get on and how impressed am I with the HTC 7 Pro?

You will need to read on to find out.

O2 first to switch on new superfast 3G 900MHz network


O2 announces that it has switched on a new superfast 3G network across London this week, having gained permission to reuse the 900MHz spectrum for 3G services from Ofcom, the UK Communications Regulator, back in January. O2 is the first UK operator to take advantage of the change to its 900MHz network licence and the new 3G900 network layer in London is expected to deliver a 50% increase in capacity to O2’s existing 3G network.

The 900MHz frequency band was previously only licensed for 2G services in the UK, but it offers the capability to significantly improve the potential of 3G services. Since being granted its new network licence in January, O2 has already deployed 3G900 services in key cities across the UK, including Leeds, Birmingham and Manchester, with other cities set to follow in the coming months.

Rigorous customer experience testing has shown that, on average, O2 customers on 3G900 compatible devices* are now receiving data 30% faster than before the new spectrum was allocated for 3G use. Network capacity in the areas where 3G900 has been rolled out has also increased by 50%, allowing more people to take advantage of O2’s high speed data services and in more places.
