Blackberry users who live on the mobile web I have some good news. CTIA is bringing to us an announcement from the Bolt developers of a nice fat update, especially for Blackberry Storm users. The list of updates:

  • Greatly improved scrolling speed and control
  • A new 3XL (extra large) magnification mode with content 33.3 percent bigger than in 2XL for all of those Crackberry users with less than stellar eye sight.
  • Double tap approach to select links on touchscreen devices like the BlackBerry storm (no more needless clicking)
  • Auto-selection of WiFi when it is on and enabled
  • Now save and view pages locally on the phone (+1)
  • Support for folders in favorites
  • New landscape viewing mode
  • Improved magnifier dragging in split screen mode on the BlackBerry Storm

BOLT Beta2 users don’t feel left out as you also got some update love:

  • Improved video quality on mpeg4 capable devices
  • Improved scrolling speed on graphic heavy pages
  • A user preferences page to reduce menu clutter, useful on BlackBerry smartphones whose native menu structure, without sub-menus, is utilized

Clearly a large update worth downloading. If you haven’t picked up the Bolt browser yet, I highly suggest you give it a try as it can truly change your mobile browsing experience. If you’re still reading, you can get your update here.
