Default Important BeamBerry Price Update

Please Login to Remove!

I received this email from BeamBerry this morning.
This makes BeamBerry much more attractive.

Subject: Important BeamBerry Price Update

Dear BeamBerry Customer,

We wanted to share with you some exciting news about the pricing for
the BeamBerry service. The price of an annual subscription to the
BeamBerry service (after the free 10 day trial) was originally
$49.99 USD / year. However, we have listened to the feedback coming
from our customers and decided that the price for the BeamBerry service
subscription will be a one time fee of $49.99 USD going forward. That means
that you will not have to pay to renew the BeamBerry service subscription
every year.
We hope that you will take advantage of this opportunity to continue
using BeamBerry. If you have already purchased a BeamBerry subscription, you will be
automatically taking advantage of this new pricing model and not
action is required on your part.

Corporate volume discounts of up to 25% are offered. To learn more
about corporate discounts and to purchase BeamBerry please visit our
website at:
https://www.beamberry.com/BBViewer2/buy_now.html
We truly appreciate and value your business. Please do not hesitate
to contact us should you have any questions.

Sincerely,

BeamBerry Team

I think it does make BeamBerry much more attractive and much more competitive.

As we don't know yet what Docs to Go will be charging (there will likely be some basic free viewing option, but the entire service won't be free) we'll see when they enter the market.

I agree with Sith. BeamBerry is much better than docs to go. This is an EXCELLENT deal. I hope many take advantage of it. It's right up there with JiveTalk, IMO.

They are smart to adjust the pricing structure. I will wait to see what the competition will have to offer.

Am I wrong in assuming that Beamberry lets you view Office documents but doesn't have any editing ability?
If the forthcoming docs2go mimics its Pocket PC/Palm versions it will allow editing of Office documents.

We'll have to see what access Docs2Go allows to the Media card, etc., it's just hard to compare right now.

Saving email attachments to the device/card is where docs to go is limited.

Because, so far, I've not seen the ability to save an email attachment. Right now, it appears it will require both apps to get the job done. Perhaps that will change.

Gotcha, but do you mean you can save to the SD card with BeamBerry or do you mean saving to the BeamBerry disk?

Kind of, indirectly. You can store it up on Beamdisk and then copy/paste it to device or card memory. Unless there's a way to stored it on the card from the get-go off the email, I haven't seen any.

This offer definitely is attractive. Would anyone have any knowledge if these guys are here to stay? I'm speaking as someone who has gotten burned in the past, shelling out >$50 for software that was EOL'ed a couple of months later with no support thereafter.

@Gameboy, I don't think I said one was better, I said we don't know much yet about what Docs2Go will offer, since it is not available yet.

@haephaestus, BeamBerry has been around for about 3 years, the first two in free beta. They only went commercial this past month. My feeling it will be around, because it will compete with the other applications on the same service.

I was actually responding to JClark who said that Beamberry was better than Docs2Go.

I agree we haven't seen what the new app will offer, but I have used Beamberry, when it was free, for months and really liked it. This price change is a good move for everyone I think.

I was really hoping that with Docs 2 go we would be able to save an attachment and edit it. Unfortunatly, that's not the case, so far. You'll still need something like BeamBerry unless the premium version of docs 2 go (not free) will do it.
