Submission + - Using your Blackberry as a modem on Linux (ostatic.com)

ruphus13 writes: Now, the suits and the geeks can unite — Barry allows Blackberries to serve as modems for Linux machines. From the news post, "Barry, created by open source software vendor Net Direct, lets you not only sync your contacts and calendar but also use your smartphone as a computer modem. Sure, it's not as fast as T1 or cable, but you can't beat it if you're stuck somewhere with no Internet access. Currently, there are packages available for Ubuntu, Debian, Mandriva, and Fedora (although syncing is not supported on Fedora 9). Most older BlackBerrys work just fine with Barry, but the newest generation of devices — the Storm and Bold — are not yet fully supported."
