My New Blackerry Curve - The Jury is still out

Submitted by bkenyon on Fri, 03/20/2009 - 10:59

Well I just bought a new Blackberry Curve with a new Verizon 2 year contract. Im not sure how I like it and if Im going to keep it (definately taking advantage of the 30 day trial). But so far I have been able to sync my google calendar and adddress book. However the email syncing between my personal email address, work email address, and gmail imap folders is funky.

I will need my read, unread, and sent email to sync with my work and gmail imap accounts and haven't quite figured that out yet. Suggestions please.

Finally for the fun apps I installed Facebook (seems too simplistic and not as good and easy to get around as the iPhone version) QIK (need an SD card apparently) which I am not able to use on my iTouch, Twitterberry (more basic that Id like, and would love to have Twinkle or Twitteriffic). Oh and installed the google apps Map, Reader, and gmail which all seem to navigate around slower and more tediously than my itouch.

Ill enjoy researching the always on internet connection applications, imaging, and location based stuff if it works. Look for more geotagged photo tweets.

Items to look for, install and try out.
Toodledo, Evernote, Friendfeed,, linkedin, Hellotxt, Hearplanet, USA Today, Joost,, Pandora, Stitcher, brightkyte, twittertrend, and some podcatcher.
