I think the people from Upvise are doing something right with their blackberry software. The fact that its very light and stores information locally( offline mode) makes it faster and doesn’t stop you from getting information if you don’t have data coverage. I also applaud them for make it works over WIFI, makes it more appealing to people who are stuck with unreasonable data plans.
