It’s the first birthday of Foodspotting, an iPhone photo app and website that concentrates on pictures of the foods available at restaurants, rather than the restaurants themselves.

The app’s official launch was a year ago today (January 15), and since then, it’s collected 250,000 images of dish recommendations. This week, Foodspotting received $3 million in funding from BlueRun Ventures, and over the past year has enjoyed 550,000 downloads of its app and 300,000 visitors to its website each month. It’s released a beta version of its Android app, and boasts partnerships with household names such as the Travel Channel, Whole Foods and Zagat.

In addition, Foodspotting offered us a fun fact: Half its 7-person team has a food-related last name, such as Grub, Cao (pronounced “Chow”) and Tang.

The location-based app finds pics of foods available nearby, beckoning users with their steamy goodness, or repelling them with their grossness — either way, users get a good look at what they’ll eat, rather than reading a menu and taking their chances. And, the app can snap iPhone pics, encouraging users to leave evidence for those who are wondering what dishes are served in a restaurant.

Foodspotting calls January 15 “World Foodspotting Day,” with more than 100 meetups all over the planet. Find one near you, and if you contribute a pic of a cake, you’ll get a birthday badge.

In the meantime, let’s feast our eyes on Foodspotting’s Top 10 greatest hits, the 10 most popular foods photographed by users of the Foodspotting iPhone app, here in all their mouth-watering goodness:

The BlackBerry Storm 3 has been whispered about and wondered about for months, but now there’s a murky trio of spy pics of RIM’s elusive smartphone for you to peruse.

A massive leak uncovered many of the mysteries of this upcoming smartphone from Research In Motion, said by BGR to be on its way in September.

With its Storm line, Blackberry bumbled the buggy first launch and nailed the second, so if the Storm 3 is anything like its respected predecessor the BlackBerry Storm 2, it might be worth the wait.

Looking a lot like last year’s iPhone with a bulbous back, the most impressive feature of the alleged BlackBerry flagship is the highest-resolution screen ever seen on a BlackBerry, 800×480 pixels, big numbers that mean its resolution is getting close to iPhone’s lofty “retina display” territory.

Check with BGR for the entire list of specs, but suffice to say this will be running a 1.2GHz CPU — it’s unknown if it’s a dual-core chip, but that’s plenty quick for smartphone these days. Now all we need to find out is how much this handset will cost and which service providers will be likely to carry it.

What about it, commenters? Will it be worth it to wait until September for the BlackBerry Storm 3?

Disclosure: RIM was a sponsor of Mashable Awards.
