I organized a bounty for the creation of a “BlackBerry as a modem” solution for Mac OS X earlier this year. The resulting product (Pulse, from Brain Murmurs) is a solution that allows you to use your BlackBerry as a standard Bluetooth modem. It works great on both Windows and Mac.

Current problem:

The Pulse solution doesn’t run as fast as it should.

Brain Murmurs did a bunch of testing and working with its users and found the problem: RIM has crippled the Bluetooth speeds in recent OS upgrades.

What I want to know is this: is this a “mistake” on RIM’s side that will be fixed? Or did it do this on purpose for some reason?
