Blackberry App store open today

Thanks iPhone users, we realize we don't have iPhones and our apps will never be as widespread or as cool as yours. But the Blackberry expreience should get a little richer now that the app store is open.

There have been a few apps around. A few weeks ago, I found the espn app. Cool, if little more than a desktop shortcut right to espn.com.

Yesterday I discovered Pandora. Long in existence, but ignored by me because 1) streaming usually hung up buffering and B) I found my iPod and later my Sirius radio more satisfying, I finally checked out Pandora and I love it. I plug my phone right into the AUX jack in my car and hook it up to my home stereo. The sound is very good and I figure to discover a bunch of music that I'll like but otherwise might not have ever found.

In fact, look for future SOTD selections coming directly from the Pandora experience. And I'll let you know if I find any other cool apps at the new BB store. Feel free to suggest any you find, too.
