Thermometer

I am wondering if the Bold or any Blackberrys have the ability to display ( on the home screen ) the tempreature wherever you are. Inside outside ect. I saw a Nokia phone that does this and a code for a samsung phone.

 

This would be highly helpful to me.

Re: Thermometer

I don't know of any that do that natively. There a lot of third party apps that show the weather and temperature in your area.

Re: Thermometer

I also don't know of any app that will do that.

 

I know of one that will display your battery temperature, but not the ambient room temp where you are located.

Re: Thermometer

I believe this would be a hardware issue instead of an app only deal. There would need to be  some sort of temp. wiring inside...would be a really nice feature. Seems very doable. Thermometers have been around forever just a matter of integrating it into a Berry.

 

Wish I had the know how to invent this device, I know tons of people who would like to have it.

It's been invented...just change out the USB connection to a MiniUSB...

 

I think you just need someone to design an app to show the data on the screen.

Re: Thermometer

Something integrated into the phone would be nicer...who wants to have a USB drive sticking off their phone all the time?

Anyway thanks...goodbye.
