Meet the coolest ringtone siblings for your BlackBerry

Ringtone Shuffler, a ringtone shuffling software by Gx5 is a new BlackBerry software that lets you hear a different custom ringtone each time you receive a call. This feature is extremely useful when you have many custom ringtones that you have added to your BlackBerry and wish to enjoy them all. This great new software lets users personalise their phones and calls and helps break the monotony of having a single ringtone for every call.

Additionally, Ringtone Shuffler also allows users to shuffle ringtones from a pre-selected list of ringtones. This means that users can also decide the list of ringtones for shuffling. This allows users to categorize their ringtones and select different lists according to their mood or wish, quite like a music playlist. For instance, if you have around 20 ringtones but you wish to hear only 5 of those, you can choose those five and only they will shuffle. Ringtone Shuffler also offers smart shuffling.

The BlackBerry Ringtone Shuffler works best when used in combination with the BlackBerryRing ToneMaker produced by the same company. The BlackBerryRing ToneMaker is a Windows desktop application that lets users custom make their own BlackBerry ringtones using the music available in their music library. This eliminates the need of purchasing ringtones for the BlackBerry.

Its intuitive interface automatically transfers the custom ringtones to the smartphone and even offers features like fade in and fades out of ringtones. Moreover, this software allows users to create ringtones to an accuracy of about one hundredth of a second. With BlackBerryRing ToneMaker, users can now select which ringtone as well as which part of it they wish to use.

Ringtone Shuffler is available for $3.95 and can be purchased and downloaded here. The BlackBerryRing ToneMaker can be purchased for $9.95 and can be downloaded here. This useful application supports the BlackBerry storm in addition to all the other models supported by Ringtone Shuffler.

Ringtone Shuffler supports the BlackBerry Curve, Curve 8900 series, 8800 series, Pearl, Bold and Pearl Flip. Ringtone shuffler requires the BlackBerry smartphone to have a media card inserted a minimum available space of 300kb. For the BlackBerry Curve, Pearl and 8800 series, Operating Systems 4.2, 4.3, 4.5, supports Ringtone Shuffler while for the BlackBerry Bold, Pearl Flip and Curve 8900, Operating System 4.6 is required.

SlingPlayer Mobile for BlackBerry exits beta, iPhone version submitted to App Store

Get ready, BlackBerry users, because your days are officially about to become less productive (or, at the very least, your mass transit commutes). You too, iPhone types -- not to say you didn't already have enough time-wasting apps cluttering that 8 to 16GB wasteland you call "storage" in your pocket -- because SlingPlayer Mobile is destined for both of these platforms.

BlackBerry's already had it since December in beta form, but they're now at a stable 1.0 release; and speaking of 1.0 releases, that iPhone version Sling's been talking up for a while now has now been submitted to Apple's App Store for approval, so we hope we'll be seeing that on the open market shortly. Now, if you'll excuse us, we have some Dora to watch on the Bold.

BlackBerry Media Sync 2.0 updated to support Windows Media Player

Now that it supports album art, Vista 64-bit and there’s a public beta for Mac users, RIM just let us know that BlackBerry Media Sync 2.0 has been updated to support Windows Media Player and will be available as of 4PM EST. For those of you who have a BlackBerry and have yet to try out BlackBerry Media Sync 2.0, the program allows you to fill your ‘Berry with music via iTunes — and now Windows Media Player — making it unnecessary to manually load MP3 files onto your device like in days of old. If you already have BlackBerry Media Sync 2.0, you will be prompted to upgrade automatically.

For everyone else you can hit up on your desktop.

iPhone 'Exchange' to Drive Apps Downloads

In a move that was somewhat anticipated, AdMob has launched an iPhone exchange for developers seeking to drive more downloads. Apps/developers contribute a portion of their inventory to the exchange and they get ad space on other apps.

It creates various opportunities for apps to be discovered by users of . . . other apps. This is a logical extension of what AdMob was already doing in advertising apps on other apps.

The growth of this apps "ecosystem" benefits AdMob in the long run as it becomes the ad network that many of these developers will use to monetize their free apps. AdMob also needs to continue to promote downloads because many apps are "perishable" and don't have a long iPhone shelf life.

SAMSUNG 2009 ( Samsung Blue Earth )

The device, called Blue Earth, was unveiled at the Mobile World Congress technology event in Barcelona, and Samsung said it underlined the Korean company’s commitment to environmental stability.

The phone is designed to resemble the shape of a shiny pebble, and uses a small solar panel to provide power.

“This phone demonstrates our small but meaningful commitments for the future and our environment,” said JK Shin, an executive vice president at Samsung.

Blue Earth is made from recycled plastic and features a special “Eco Mode” that users can access with a single click to wring the maximum energy use from the device.

A full solar charge of around 10 to 14 hours will provide enough power for around four hours of talk time. The handset can still be charged normally using a conventional plug, with the solar panels used to top up the battery during use.

It also has a built-in pedometer to help users to measure how much smaller their carbon footprint is when walking rather than driving.

Blue Earth goes on sale in the UK later this year and Samsung did not give any details about price or network partners. However, sources hinted that the handset was likely to be priced at the upper end of the market.

SAMSuNG MOBILE 2009 ( Behold T919 Touchscreen Handset )

T-Mobile announced the Samsung Behold, a slim touch screen device with multimedia features and full web browsing capabilities.

The Behold has a large 3.0-inch LCD color touch screen displays crisp, clear images and offers responsive feedback called haptics. A built-in accelerometer automatically switches the screen between portrait and landscape modes.

Through Samsung's innovative TouchWiz user interface, users can 'drag and drop' widgets to personalize the handset - functions such as the clock, music player, instant messaging and photos.

Users can blog, text and chat with the virtual QWERTY touchpad. Multiple messaging capabilities include text, multimedia messaging, instant messaging, email and Audio Postcard support.

The built-in 5.0-megapixel camera and camcorder with flash and auto-focus snaps high-resolution photos and videos.

A GPS receiver uses TeleNav GPS Navigator for turn-by-turn driving directions with maps.

The Behold has high-speed connectivity and a full HTML web browser for faster access to the Internet.

With stereo Bluetooth wireless technology, speakerphone and voice activated dialing, the Behold lets customers go handsfree.
