I have the Blackberry Curve 8530, and I use an 8G micro SD card in it, so I knew I had plenty of memory. With the memory card in my laptop, I created a file especially for the image files and put all the cartridge images in it (above). Notice the search box at the top of the screen in the photo below. This lets me search for the cartridge I want since each file is named by the cartridge name, ie "create_a_critter_01.jpg" in the photo. For example, to find Create A Critter, I just have to start typing "create" and the images will be pulled up for that cartridge.
Now I can enlarge them to fit the screen and scroll through them one image at a time (above). What I didn't think of was that I was going to be able to zoom in on the images to see the details better (below). Can I just tell you how excited I am?!?! Just last night I was in Wal-mart trying to decide between 2 of the new Lite carts, and I couldn't see the tiny images on the back without my reading glasses well enough to decide which one to get. If I'd only had them on my Berry already, I could have easily browsed them! I'm also thrilled that I can zoom in to see layers and colors better - something that you can't do with them on the Gypsy. I know you can also zoom on the iPhone, and they will be even bigger on it than they are on my Blackberry.

I LOVE being able to carry all the images with me on my phone so I always have them with me to browse when an idea hits me! I hope some of you out there will be just as excited about it, too! Please do leave a comment if you use them this way. I'd love to have an idea of how many iPhone and Blackberry users there are out there making use of them! And tell me if you've used them on other devices, too. Your comments make my day!
