Bling your Pearl

I read that one of the best features of the Blackberry 8100 /81XX Pearl is the ability to change the colour of the Pearl. Wow. Isn’t that usefull?

So I ignored the feature up until recently when my 1st Blackberry (R.I.P, wish I could’ve shared this app with u) was replaced after it’s most unfortunate demise .

I stumbled accross the install files while trying to replace my old Blackberry apps (like Twitterberry)and thought, what the heck, let me give it a shot. And Damn! Colour me impressed!

Blinged Pearl

There are two apps available, depending on your firmware version:
Colorpearl (Works on Version 4.2 OS) and BlingBall (Works on V5 OS)

Colorpearl OTA (Install directly to your mobile)

I’ve also made the install files available here:

Colorpearl and BlingBall

Instructions:

Download the Zips, unpack and install using Desktop Manager.

RIP SMS

The Internet has a new arsenal against the telecoms world; Web 2.0.

With a combination of twitter and either:

Widsets with the twitter widget

or

a Gtalk account with a mobile IM client like mxit

one can send free sms’s from a mobile!

All you need to do is use the IM client/ widsets widget to send a direct twitter to a friend and he will receive the message as an SMS, thanks to twitter!

The actual searches can be found on the right hand side panel under the usual Google search widget.

Linux evolves for mobile phones

Ubuntu on a mobile! I can’t wait….

“The Ubuntu Mobile and Embedded project aims to create the open source platform for initial release in October 2007.

The operating system will be developed by members of the Ubuntu community, along with staff from chip giant Intel.

Its development was prompted by the growth of power hungry portable devices that place new demands on software.

“It is clear that new types of device – small, handheld, graphical tablets which are Internet-enabled – are going to change the way we communicate and collaborate,” said Ubuntu CTO Matt Zimmerman.

“These devices place new demands on open-source software and require innovative graphical interfaces, improved power management and better responsiveness.”

Mobile firms such as Nokia are already using open source technologies in some of its products….”
