Hacking BB (cover)Hacking BlackBerry by Glenn Bachmann is a book which is very similar to the title BlackBerry Hacks by Dave Mabe. The book holds a number of interesting tips (did you know you could insert the current time into a field by entering ld or the device’s PIN with mypin?) and tricks as well as insight into a number of useful or useless applications, depending on your needs. RSS feeds and blogging from a BlackBerry by mail are covered as well. There is a good introduction to the JDE as well as some sample programs of dubious corporate use (get the device to vibrate or play music). Have a peek at a sample chapter: Customizing the BlackBerry. I consider this book nice to have but not indispensible.
