BlackBerry 5.0 sounds available to download

Screen Shot 2011-11-09 at 07.24.59

If you have upgraded from a BlackBerry 5.0 device to 6 or 7, one of the things you may have noticed is that the notification tones are different and there is a smaller range to choose from. Now although the 5.0 sounds could be installed onto your BlackBerry 6 or 7 device’s microSD card it was not common knowledge and non geeks probably wouldn’t know where to find them.

The 5.0 sounds are now available to download from BlackBerry App World so everyone can enjoy the notification sounds they were used to in the good old days.

Do a search in App World and enjoy.

Sky News app released for BlackBerry

Capture11_30_4 copy

I have been waiting for this one for so long. Great news as the Sky News app appeared recently in BlackBerry App World and much like on other platforms you not only have the ability to read news articles but also watch video too.

The app is free to download and one of the features I love is that you can set the application to auto refresh and the news feeds will be integrated into your message inbox. BBM integration is also supported!

You can see more details below along with a selection of pictures of the main features.

If you own a BlackBerry downloading this app is a must.

Motorola Pro+ unboxing video

Motorola Pro+ Motorola launched the original Motorola Pro in February of this year. It wasn’t hugely successful. Specs were not great, the screen was simply HVGA and the keyboard lacked the finesse of it’s Blackberry rivals.

Perhaps it’s no surprise, then, that Motorola should come up with the successor to the Pro, the Pro+, so quickly after the release of it’s predecessor. The Pro+ has a similar form factor but a more refined design that the Pro, sleeker lines and more curves. The CPU clocks at 1Ghz and it benchmarks favourably against other handsets with the same CPU. The screen size has increased and fortunately so has the resolution which is now up to 480×640 or portrait VGA.

Check out the video I have for you below, it’s covers the hardware as well as some of the key parts of the OS. I’ll have a full review for you over the next week or so.
