Blogs on My Blackberry - No Iphone Necessary

Last Friday I was blocked from walking down the Fifth Avenue sidewalk in front of the Apple store. The Iphone madness was going on. I saw a television advertisement for the Iphone while at the gym showing the user playing around with the New York Times. I confess, I had a moment of Iphone envy. But if I bought a toy like that, I would never use it.

I have recently been playing around with some features on my Blackberry 8700. There is a browser called Opera Mini that you can download for free. It greatly speeds up the internet connection and makes searches much quicker. I had a hard time installing it, until I read the fine print on the help page that gave me very simple instructions on configuring the telephone.

The Opera Mini browser also collects RSS Feeds. The previous RSS aggregators I used did not include images. But in testing the Opera Mini browser, I subscribed to this blog and was delighted to see that the images posted were crystal-clear and in color, rivalling the display that the Iphone advertisements showed. Very pleasing to the eye. The Opera Mini also had high-quality color access to the New York Times with a very readable interface.

As video and photo quality improve, the PDA and cell phones will be at the forefront of copyright and royalty litigation.
