Handmark Expanding BlackBerry Software Lineup

Handmark has come out with some new applications – all quite varied – for the BlackBerry.

First up is Bible Translations. Available on May 28, this is the first Bible product from Handmark specifically for the BlackBerry platform. It offers unlimited access to 16 Bible translations.

Also set to hit the market on May 28 is something called Ringtone Junkie, a “new and improved” ringtone management app that provides access to thousands of popular MP3 ringtones. Carrying a $19.95 price tag, Ringtone Junkie lets users download, store, access and assign custom ringtones to contacts in their BlackBerry address book.

The first game for the BlackBerry from Handmark’s Astraware game studio, Idigicon’s Platypus, will arrive in Q3. This will be followed by flagship Astraware titles Solitaire, Sudoku, Casino and Boardgames, which will be available starting in the fourth quarter.
