Default bittorent?

Please Login to Remove!

If anyone else is like me and insane... Knows by now you can setup your bb w/ pure TCP/IP connections with an unlimited data plan that is roughly 128kbps, allowing such services like SSH and AIM to work. But I want to take my insanity 1 step further... I have a 2GB micro SD card and soon an 8GB when they get released. I wonder if it's even feasible to use bittorent on the bb.

I challenge someone to create or cross compile a java torrent client for the bb.

This would rock if it proves stable. Then again, I bet T-mobile would get rather pissy about it.

It would NEVER happen. It would require WAY too much CPU and ram. The blackberry simply couldn't do it. As sad as it is. *cough*idea RIM...*cough*

Yeah. That would be neat. But still really hard to do... I would use it though... Man, browse for movies @ school, get home from work that night, and theyr done. It would be nice.
