Ping! Exclamation Point!

http://seattlest.com

Anyone that has worked for, with, or anywhere near "the man" should dislike the word ping. It's too easy to immediately associate the word with a bothersome, middle aged project manager saying, "Let me look into that and I'll ping you." Why can't you just say email? Why?

We begrudgingly admit that in the case of this new iPhone app, the name is rather fitting. The application allows free registered users to message each other via push notifications over the data connection, rather than SMS. This is rad for a number of reasons. Most obviously, users of Ping can potentially avoid paying AT&T's reprehensibly priced SMS plans. It also allows the opportunity to communicate with people who have no SMS plan at all, such as complete freaks or friends overseas.

One thing Blackberry has always had over iPhones, and that converts deeply miss, is Blackberry Messenger. It's real time, it's free, it's easy; it's texting on steroids. Ping isn't quite there yet, but it's a step in the right direction.

Napster: Don’t Hold Your Breath Waiting for Our Awesome New iPhone App

http://mediamemo.allthingsd.com

Best Buy’s Napster wants you to know that you can now buy music “over the air” and beam it directly to your phone. Yawn.

What about the company’s awesome new iPhone app, the one that will let you stream music directly to your handset? You know, like the one that Apple (AAPL) just approved for Spotify, the superhyped service you can’t even get in the U.S. yet?

Don’t hold your breath says Best Buy (BBY). That Napster app is not coming anytime soon. And neither are apps for Google’s (GOOG) Android platform or Research In Motion’s (RIMM) BlackBerry. And it’s because of those darn music labels.

Agito brings VoIP over Wi-Fi to BlackBerry

http://www.v3.co.uk

Agito Networks has expanded its mobile unified communications (UC) offering to bring VoIP over Wi-Fi to the most popular BlackBerry devices. The development expands Agito's RoamAnywhere Mobility Router, and aims to help integrate UC into organisations' mobile devices, including Research in Motion (RIM) smartphones.RIM dominates the enterprise smartphone market, and is proving increasingly popular in the consumer market, and Agito has been keen to get its UC technology onto the platform. Agito acknowledged that this has not been an easy process, but said that it has released a tightly integrated application for the BlackBerry Bold 9000, and the Curve 8900, 8800 and 8300 models. A lack of Wi-Fi means that the Storm range has not been included in Agito's list. BlackBerry users could previously access only UC and PBX functionality over the cellular network, which negated some features as well as the coverage and cost-saving benefits delivered by combining Wi-Fi.

Blackberry Curve outselling iPhone

http://www.nydailynews.com

Blackberry's ubiquity is paying off. Although the iPhone has won hearts and minds with its groundbreaking design and its slick style, the Blackberry Curve is winning the sales war so far this year, according to market researchers at The NPD Group. Part of the reason? Availability. While Apple's iPhone is an AT&T exclusive, the Curve works with all four major U.S. carriers. Though NPD does not reveal its exact sales figures to the public, the firm ranked Research in Motion's Blackberry Curve the No. 1 selling smartphone for the first three months of 2009. The iPhone finished second, followed by another Blackberry, the touch-screen Storm.
