Xobni — an app that aims to help people get more from their email — is coming to the BlackBerry with Xobni Mobile . The models supported will be the Curve, Storm and Tour lines. Just as the Xobni plugin does for Microsoft Outlook, Xobni Mobile offers the ability to gather more information about your email contacts. You’ll be able to see not only threaded email conversations but also the contact’s social networking details, such as their Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn accounts. Here’s what it looks like when you enter the Xobni Mobile app.
CIO — Thanks to mobile software stores like Research In Motion's ( RIM ) (RIM) BlackBerry App World and Mobihand's App Store for BlackBerry , it's never been easier to obtain mobile applications for BlackBerry smartphones, whether you're shopping around on your handheld or via desktop computer. That's clearly a good thing for BlackBerry users. But in this case, it's possible to have too much of a good thing.
It’s easy to forget now, with the iPhone and Android dominating the mobile market, but the BlackBerry was the original smartphone. In fact, without the BlackBerry we might have seen smartphones develop in a completely different way. Starting as a pager with text capabilities, the BlackBerry grew into an international messaging personal information management powerhouse. It has since lost its luster, but promises to come back strong with the BlackBerry 10 platform, due out in early 2013.
