BEIKS releases Noah v. 4.5 with updated KJV and 16 new Bible eBooks, and announces 50% discount on all BlackBerry dictionaries
DALLAS (March 25, 2011) - - BEIKS releases an update of its Bible application for BlackBerry to support the new BlackBerry OS version 6.x on devices with keyboard, releases updated KJV Bible eBook now with italicized words and adds 16 new Bible translations. As a spring promotion all bi-directional BlackBerry dictionaries are available at 50% discount.
BEIKS announced spring promotion of all BlackBerry bi-directional dictionaries for just $9.95 and $14.95 for the talking bi-directional dictionaries line, and immediate availability of sixteen new additions to the collection of free Bible translations for its Noah Bible Viewer for BlackBerry, the leading platform for mobile smart phones in US and worldwide. The King James Version of the Bible eBook for Noah Bible Viewer for BlackBerry has been updated with italics.
The italicized words in KJV are words added by the translators of the Bible from Greek and Hebrew to English. When translating from one language to another, the idioms change, thus making it necessary to add certain words to help the reader grasp the full meaning of the text. When the KJV translators added such words they set them in italics so that we'd know these words were added.
Benefitting from the extension of the available free Bible eBooks list for Noah Bible Viewer for BlackBerry are German, Albanian, Dutch, French, Haitian, Hungarian, Korean, Romanian, Swedish, Ukrainian and Thai speaking users, who will now be able to carry and read the Bible in their native language. In addition the Noah Webster Version, Weymouth New Testament, Latin Vulgate, Darby's English Translation and Young's Literal Translation Bible eBooks are now available for free download.
All dictionaries and public domain Bibles made available for Noah Bible Viewer for BlackBerry, including the new translations, can be found at the BEIKS' home page for BlackBerry applications at http://blackberry.beiks.com, or for direct device download, at http://mobile.beiks.com.
The new Bible eBooks are only available to users of Noah Bible Viewer version 4.0 or higher. There are no plans to release a build for previous application versions.
