But why does A Blackberry (or even a cell phone user) really need this?

I would guess the same reason you would need a 400+ horsepower car in NYC traffic with gas at $3+ per gallon.

Basically to KNOW you can do it, if you wanted to lol

As far as I know, this link wasn't "whored" (for your lack of a better word) from Pinstack over to here.

Getting back on the topic of the SonaMobile Player, why would someone want that? Well, in case many of you haven't noticed, Blackberrys are getting more and more consumer notice every day now, and it looks as if the public sector is gaining users quickly. Therefore, there are going to need programs such as this because there will be a growing command for them for consumer users.

Any questions, you have my email and PIN.

Actually, let me edit so that you have the right pin: Its 20405a18

Wow. If something's handed to you on a silver platter, you'd all say "**** no", huh...

And for the record, I read this on I4U.com, and thought you might be interested.

Thank God people like you don't run RIM. They'd be still in the stone age. You'd probably say no to the TCP stack too.

In that case I'm on the way over to make a post with reference to another forum, I'm sure I'll be warned or banned before I hit submit...

I downloaded the software with no snags but I can't download any of the video samples as it gives me a java error. Any ideas?

I was able to download the software OTA and play with the videos. Here's the link for OTA: h**p://video.sonamobile.net/download.asp

They state that it's beta, so YMMV. I think the quality of the video is mediocre at best. Granted, if any of you have tried MobiTV, you'll be used to the grainy compression. What bugs me is that you have to download the videos, there's no streaming. Which means on average it took me about 4 minutes to download a 1 minute news clip. Now if there was an option for me to stream my own videos or other videos I could see the benefit, but for now it's limited to their News, Finance, and Sports videos.

First as someone who streams their SlingBox to a PocketPC I would have to say Mobile Video can be very useful... it's a nice way to remote program my TiVo for starters. Downloading 30 second clips isn't really of interest to me... its novel at best. But real streaming of actual content does have its uses.

As far as PinStack goes I have been there and participated some and everyone seems fine... there are few BBF regulars that spend time there so I agree with tprime. It's somewhat nonsensical to remove relevant posts that link other sites - except as a way to try to reduce search indexing and keep eyeballs on your site... if your doing a good enough job with content you wont have much to worry about with people seeing the "forbidden fruit"!!!

Everybody asks that question about some particular feature or app. The answer, in short, is that 'one size does not fit all" but thankfully there are options.

I distinctly remember a conversation with several people in the early nineties who wondered aloud "Why would anyone need to carry their email with them."

What would be more helpful than anything, IMHO, would be a vlc/Core media player for the Blackberry. Has anyone bothered to contact the Core developers about developing a Java/J2ME implementation of TCPMP? Seems likely that someone is working on that? Any thoughts?

As a quick followup to my own post, I found this:

http://cc.serveftp.org:8884/tcpmp/

Which clearly states that they are planning on releasing TCPMP for the J2ME platform which means it should run on a BB...
