I have noticed that Idokorro MobileSSH
has cut their price by half - $95
Last year, I purchsaed it out of my pocket. I couldn't wait for a superior telnet/SSH program so I got that program. (midpssh is great if you just want basic functionality, but it's not good enough for my use). Idokorro comes with a free trial too.
It comes with a free copy of Texas Holdem, in case anyone is interested. Idokorro actually operates in the same building as Magmic (a sponsor of BlackBerryForums), here in Ottawa. They are both local businesses to me!
I would suggest giving Idokorro MobileSSH a try, if you are still desparate for the best telnet/SSH client for BlackBerry. (And I have tried many of them! Needtext, Sonic, Admiral, midpssh, etc. And Idokorro surprisingly came in cheapest for individual user use, apart from the freely available open-source midpssh)
