Do you need to stay connected 24/7 and in the loop? If you do, you're in luck! Author Dave Mabe, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that will become an invaluable guide for those of you that are BlackBerry owners. Mabe, begins by focusing on getting around in your BlackBerry. Then, he shows you how to become a black belt in BlackBerry's bread and butter. The author continues by looking at games hacks. Next, he explores the Internet and other networks. Then, the author explores the free applications that are for the taking. He continues with a discussion of some of the coolest third-party applications out there. Next, he deals with BES administration. Then, he shows you how to turn your tired intranet site into a mobile, push-enabled application optimized for the BlackBerry. Finally, he shows you how to jump into BlackBerry development with two feet. You can read this most excellent book from cover to cover, but each hack stands on its own. Filled with example code, you may use some of the code in this book in your programs and documentation. Basically, this book is here to help you get your job done--whatever it may be.
