Default BlinkBerry for 7100 released by Green Tech

I'm proud to announce that BlinkBerry is now available for 7100 series devices.

BlinkBerry allows you to customize your status light. You can
  • assign colors to signal strength values
    change the duration of blinks
    change the spacing of blinks

[Edit: Note: This post was originally a reply to somebody else's post that got deleted by the user himself]

Some of us are willing to pay $15 for a program that changes LED colors to signal strength (7100 uses a multicolor LED - it can be red, magenta, blue, yellow, cyan, etc.).

I think a lower price would sell way more copies, but I wouldn't discourage developers until someone has actually reviewed the product, because it does more than just blink the LED's -- it actually fades them and changes their colors (blue, red, cyan, magenta, yellow) and custom colors are assignable to signal levels. So you know how strong the signal is, without removing the BlackBerry from the holster. This neat-sounding feature alone is worth $15 to some people.

I would worry about the "spam" aspect of advertising a new software more than the price of the software, but I guess a first announcement is innocent enough, since price is not quoted in the post. It is indeed BlackBerryForums policy to allow one discreet announcement of a new software program as long as prices are not quoted and there's just one discreet hyperlink (not in signature)...

Although I am not a 7100 user, let me note you that Idokorro Telnet is a $195 program that does something that midpssh for free (and desktop PuTTY), but I am an Idokorro Telnet user. I did get it at a discount down to $95 though, and it is still a superior program to midpssh (which isn't suitable for my specific needs). I needed it that badly enough to pay that premium.

BlackBerry software is typically about 3 times more expensive than PocketPC/Palm software, but prices are sure to fall when competition increases. I am sure that someone else will produce a "Univeresal Tweaker" either for cheap or free, and this by itself, could drive prices down.
