Default BBCool: free currency converter (tiny phone app, data plan needed)

From BBCool today:


Oanda, a company specializing in foreign exchange services, and SweetCaesar, who develop custom BlackBerry apps, have teamed up to release a mobile version of Oanda’s FXConverter. The software is used around the world to convert over 160 different currencies, from the Afghanistan Afghani to the Zambian Kwacha, usually with rates less than a minute old. FXConverter Mobile puts all the information at your thumbtips, with an easy interface that sorts currencies into alphabetical categories and remembers your recent conversions, and even tells you exactly how many seconds since the rates were updated. Easily used and usable by everyone from casual travelers to millionaire bigwigs.
Shove this in your phone browser to get it:

I just gave it a quick download (it's only 70K) and it works perfectly (and really fast) on my 8320/T-Mobile. It will use your internet connection, so for those that pay-per-use watch out for data charges.
