Wanted: Blackberry Alpha Testers

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

hornet logoHornet, the new .tel address book for Blackberry is in the final stages of development ahead of its beta release. Hornet is a free app for Blackberry smart phone devices. Hornet is similar to the native Blackberry address book and users should find its functions simple and familiar – but without the need to key in contact information!

hornet_blackberryHornet is available for Blackberry smart phones that operate OS 4.2 and higher. A separate version for the Blackberry Storm supports landscape/portrait viewing and special functions to control the popup keyboard.

Limited testing has been undertaken in the US, Canada and the UK with great results, but we are now looking for a broader group of alpha testers to provide feedback, especially about carrier compatibility.

In addition to minor tweaks (dialog text, minor UI changes), we’re putting together the launch site which will include download pages, detailed app description, support pages and comprehensive user guide.

In the meantime, both the OS 4.2+ and Storm versions can be downloaded over the air direct to your Blackberry at

Please send your candid feedback and comments to and if possible, include your location, carrier, device and OS.

Thanks for your help! We look forward to your feedback.
