    Goal.com and Handmark® have just introduced a new app for mobile phones to follow their soccer coverage. And in this case BB is the first in line, iPhone, Nokia and Windows phone will follow later. The free eReader has a direct mobile download link or a separate PC desktop installer. The service is for free, but remember that due to updated content there might be additional data charges depending on your data plan.

    But here comes the best part of it. Celebrating the introduction of their new mobile reader for Blackberry Goal.com has set up a contest, where you can win a free BB 8900 or 8520. The quiz will run on a weekly basis and started yesterday...so 6 chances to answer the weekly 20 questions. The correct answers have to be submitted via emai to blackberrybattle@goal.com with Goal.com links to support every answer. Deadline for submission is every Thursday, winners will be announce the day after.

    Read on in the next post to find the questions for week one.

    The free eReader app can be either downloaded following this link with your berry browser or here to get the off-line installation package. The latter one is a full desktop installation, that can be added to your berry by unzipping, and selecting the GOAL.alx file from within your App Loader.

    The app installs and runs smoothly on my storm with OS 5.x - I only had to change the connection type from direct TCP/IP to BIS-B (settings/account), but this will of course depend on you individual data plan.

    The app comes with several pre-configured feeds, such as breaking news, World Cup 2010, Champions League, coverage of soccer news from England, Spain and Italy - but also lets you customize you own feeds.

    Week four to win your free BlackBerry

    1) Who took career advice from Diniyar Bilyaletdinov and Sergey Rebrov, among others, when seeking a switch away from the Premier League?

    2) Who told Goal.com UK exclusively that he's seeking two new players this January?

    3) Which former Bolton target might soon find his way to a Champions League club?

    4) Number-crunching: Sunderland want to make a certain striker their top earner, but how far short of his reported demands have they fallen?

    5) Which sharp-shooting, sought-after striker was recently described as a "long shot", despite rarely choosing to shoot from outside the area?

    6) He beat Barcelona, now he might be heading to the Premier League to directly replace a former Barca boy, who only joined this particular club in the summer. Who is he and where is he going?

    7)
    Who made a premature declaration to Goal.com UK, which at the time of writing (Monday, January 11, 9am GMT) has yet to come to pass?

    8) Which five players might be sold this summer to make the same amount of money generated through the sale of just one last summer?

    9) Who loves and admires Real Madrid and Barcelona, but has no intention of doing any business with them in the near future?

    10) "Consecutive losses" both on and off the pitch may result in the transfer of which star striker?

    11) Which Englishman has no interest in heading back home, contrary to much speculation?

    12) Which pair are trying to be lured away from Sicily to Stamford Bridge?

    13) Two of Man United's reported transfer targets share not just a language, not just a prior club, but also the same current club. Who are they? (Provide two separate links to prove that United have been linked with each player.)

    14) Which French international would only be allowed to leave his club for €45m or more?

    15) Despite being renowned as arrogant, whose confidence issues have reportedly been chief among the reasons for him now being considered for a summer transfer?

    16) Bayern would rather Franck Ribery went to one of which three clubs rather than his preferred destination, Real Madrid?

    17)
    On what condition might Chelsea be able to sign 'Fernando Torres' replacement' in January?

    18) Germany might lure back one of its own from Scotland, but who is he?

    19) Which left-back has gone right back to the league he came from, swapping red for blue, making the selling club an untidy financial loss in the process?

    20) A former Manchester United man signing for Manchester City is just a "joke", when it comes to Veron... but who's the most recent to have done what Veron, as it turns out, will not?
