Video for the Blackberry

Everyone thinks of Blackberries as e-mail tools. Now, a Toronto-based company called Sona Mobile seeks to make the Blackberry a mobile video device as well, with a video player for the Blackberry 7130e and 8700.

The video selections are currently limited, and the player itself is still in beta. But early feedback about the player is encouraging. If Sona's efforts prove successful, it will open up mobile video to an entirely new -- and potentially huge -- audience.
