Robert sent me a PDF comparison chart of S4BB’s task manager applications. Normally I would not give this information much weight but there was one little tidbit that caught my eye. S4BB’s NextAction pro will be retailing for $119.95!!! I bought a copy of Windows XP OEM for less than that…
Now for the kicker. The big new features differentiating the regular NextAction ($39.95) application from the upcoming Pro version are:
- VoiceAction Support – no typing required anymore; record your voice as a Voice Action
- Task Priority Support
- Enhanced BlackBerry Bold Support
Those must be pretty compelling to convince somebody to spend 3 times as much… Especially considering you can do most of the features with the native task app, voice recorder, or Vlingo for free.
Here is me hoping that the very professional PDF is wrong or S4BB is planning a 70% discount out the door. If you are interested in checking out NextAction Pro you can sign up for their Beta program at this link.
So I am really curious. Would you consider paying over $100 for a BlackBerry application? How about $50+? Personally $20 is the max in my opinion and it really has to be worth it…
