    A couple of weeks ago during BlackBerry World 2012 attendees were given a look at some of the new BlackBerry 10 features. Among those new features that wowed the crowd was the new gesture-based, predictive text touchscreen keyboard.

    It is not very often that we reference anything Apple related, but BBOS member DownForce let us know in the forums that, BlackBerry users aren't the only ones excited for this new innovative new feature from RIM. iPhone users could see a clone of RIM's new gesture based predictive type keyboard as early as next week. The jailbreak tweak application Octopus will allow iPhone users to use the keyboard that most Blackberry users are only dreaming about now.

    The Octopus keyboard has features that include, automatically learning new words as you type, custom completion engine, and multi-language support. Sound familiar? If not you will want to take another look at the BlackBerry 10 Sneak Peek Video we posted not too long ago.

    This will be interesting to see how RIM responds to this as it is a jailbreak tweak and not mandated by Apple in any way. So the developer behind Octopus keyboard may find themselves in hot water within the next few weeks.

    What do you think about this? Sound off in the forum.

    For busy dads and hard-working grads, RIM offers a complete selection of mobile tools to help them be more productive and have fun too. This season’s ultimate portable companions feature wireless music streaming, a multi-tasking tablet and numerous apps to boost productivity.

    BlackBerry Music Gateway
    With the BlackBerry Music Gateway, music loving dads and grads can wirelessly stream tunes to their home or car stereo from a BlackBerry smartphone, BlackBerry PlayBook tablet or a Bluetooth enabled device with a simple tap to their NFC enabled BlackBerry or pairing via Bluetooth connectivity. They can sync their personal music library, purchase albums and songs from the BlackBerry Music Store or stream music from the many BlackBerry App World music apps like BBM Music, Pandora or Slacker, for a rich multimedia experience. Once connected to the BlackBerry Music Gateway, they can control their selections from up to 30 feet away from the stereo, without missing a beat. The BlackBerry Music Gateway begins shipping in June and will be available on for US$49.99.

    BlackBerry PlayBook

    The slim, sleek and ultra-portable BlackBerry PlayBook tablet fits in a jacket pocket and is powerful enough for the next adventure - whether keeping up with post-grad coursework, a new job or busy travel schedule. Equipped with enhanced communication tools built in, including calendar, contacts and messages, dads and grads will always be at the head of the class. The PlayBook's high-performance multi-tasking capabilities make it easy to watch a movie, play a game, browse the web and stay on top of email all at the same time.

    The PlayBook’s ever-expanding app library offers many apps perfect for busy dads and grads like Evernote, which synchronizes notes, ideas and more from a BlackBerry to the Web or computer desktop; and Blaq for the ultimate Twitter experience. Your favorite dad or grad can also enjoy out of this world fun on the PlayBook with Angry Birds Space and the adventurous Machinerium.

    BlackBerry Apps
    The latest BlackBerry 7 smartphones help dads and grads get more done in less time. Apps like BlackBerry Traffic ensure they’re not late for a job interview or family dinner by providing an estimated time of arrival, alternate routes and stress-free navigation. And when they're too busy to call, the newly updated BBM quickly shares voice notes, messages, pictures and status updates, with the added benefit of knowing when the message was read. Not sure which app they need most? The mobile gifting platform allows BlackBerry users to gift apps to each other through BBM.

    That's right folks. The official (BeBeOS) app for BlackBerry PlayBook has now been approved and is ready for you to download via BlackBerry App World! We reported a couple weeks ago that we had just submitted the app, and now today the day has finally come. However, instead of being called simply the BBOS or BlackBerryOS app, due to App World guidelines, we had to call it the BeBeOS app in the store. Close enough.

    So don't wait, get it downloaded today and keep up on what's new from the REAL #1 BlackBerry fan site out there!

    I am loving this commercial. I really brings out the difference between BlackBerry people and other smartphone users. I like RIM's approach with this TV ad and I'm hoping it's not reserved exclusively for the UK as we could definitely use this one over in the U.S.

    What do you think of the commercial, creative or not? Let us know in the comments!

    Looks like RIM is still interested in the concept of fuel cell technology. The company has just filed for two similar patents one for the frame of a device and the other for the fuel tank itself. Now if your like me then you may be wondering if having some sort of fuel tank on a mobile device is safe.

    Not to bore anyone with a history lesson, but the concept of fuel cells have been around since the mid 1800's . Since then it has been used by NASA and other companies for commercial use.

    Either way patents are a nice way to see what direction a company is heading in their R&D department. Could this mean longer battery life? Will we one day have to charge our devices in the same way you would charge a butane lighter? Very interesting to say the least.

    It seems Research In Motion is not keeping all their app promotions to the U.S. only, as a new one has now been extended to BlackBerry users in South America. The latest premium app to join the party is Nobex Radio and it's waiting for you to download it for free, compliments of BlackBerry.

    This great app is available to all new OS 7 and 7.1 Curve owners (9360, 9320, 9220) for free. Think of it as a kind of incentive from RIM to get more people to purchase these new Curves. So if you're in South America and want to get your hands on Nobex Radio premium for free (normally a $9.99 vale) go get it by clicking the link below.

    Don't forget, all owners of BlackBerry 7 devices in the U.S. can still download a slew of premium apps for free, compliments of BlackBerry, until May 31st.
