After years of Treo usage, I just got my first Blackberry, a 7250 from Verizon. It’s been interesting to immerse myself in the whole Blackberry user experience. I can now see how the Blackberry’s excellent data retrieval capabilities have won it adherents.
One downside of the 7250 is that its built-in RSS feed reader, News Clip, requires a licensing fee of $40. Another popular RSS reader, FreeNews, isn’t free at all but costs $20/year. After poking around a bit, I finally found a good, free Blackberry RSS news feed reader: Piconews. You can install it over the air by entering this link into your Blackberry browser: http://piconews.com/piconews.jad. Many thanks to BlackTouch, the producers of this software.
