    BlackBerry still holds a strong lead in the corporate world but is losing ground to other devices at smaller businesses, TNS found on Monday. Among all businesses, BlackBerry held 69 percent of the U.S. market, but saw its share drop sharply outside of big companies. Enterprises with 1,000 or more staffers were dominated by RIM's 81 percent share, but the iPhone now had 35 percent of small business, or twice as much as it had overall.

    The gap was credited partly to hesitation from companies to use the iPhone due to Apple's policy limitations on apps and possible security concerns.

    January 6, 2011 – CES 2011, Las Vegas, NV – RIM and Sprint announced plans to launch a new BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet model featuring connectivity to the blazingly fast Sprint 4G network. The BlackBerry 4G PlayBook™ will be the first BlackBerry PlayBook model to include wide area wireless connectivity, featuring Sprint 4G to give customers download speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G1. This new 4G model is expected to be available from Sprint in the summer.

    Together, the BlackBerry 4G PlayBook and the Sprint 4G network will provide a high performance platform that will enable a mobile services revolution for both application developers and customers.

    “RIM believes a significant portion of the tablet market will want a higher performing, multitasking, professional-grade tablet and that is why we chose to design the BlackBerry PlayBook for premium performance with a powerful dual-core processor and multitasking OS. Together with Sprint, we are now building on that performance advantage with 4G and providing an unparalleled mobile experience for users,” said Mike Lazaridis, President and Co-CEO at Research In Motion.

    ”We are excited to bring this powerful new product to our business customers and consumers who rely on Sprint for industry-leading devices as well as one of the best values in wireless,” said Steve Elfman, president of network operations and wholesale for Sprint. “This tablet is a great example of Sprint’s strong partnership with RIM in continuing to bring customers powerful devices to enhance their mobility. We are confident the BlackBerry 4G Playbook from Sprint will be one of the most anticipated tablets in 2011.”

    By announcing the exclusive 4G PlayBook, Sprint extends its 4G-leadership position with its 18th 4G-capable device. The BlackBerry 4G PlayBook is expected to be available from Sprint in the summer. Additional details and pricing will be released closer to launch.

    We’ve got a leaked version of BlackBerry Messenger for those running OS 6. Version 5.0.1.45 cropped up online today. We’re told that those upgrading from BlackBerry Messenger version 5.0.1.41 should see faster loading of group chats and general use, though no change log is currently available for this leaked version.

    A buddy of mine said he noticed improvements though after a battery pull. If you’d like to try it, let others know what improvements you see in our forums. We've got the file via desktop download for you as many people are having trouble with the OTA versions that are out there.

    In a statement late Wednesday, RIM attempted to dispel concerns that the company’s new PlayBook tablet has a shorter battery life than the competition.

    Yesterday, Kaufman Bros. analyst Shaw Wu claimed that the device has a battery life of just “a few hours,” compared to 6 and 10 hours for other devices. Here’s the statement from RIM according to Bgr:

    “Any testing or observation of battery life to date by anyone outside of RIM would have been performed using pre-beta units that were built without power management implemented. RIM is on track with its schedule to optimize the BlackBerry PlayBook’s battery life and looks forward to providing customers with a professional grade tablet that offers superior performance with comparable battery life.”

    Hopefully, the Kaufman Brother’s claim will prompt RIM to improve whatever battery life they initially planned after the Playbook’s power management is implemented.

    Ford recently launched their AppLink that connects your BlackBerry through a set of APIs that can extend an app’s functionality to the car using both voice and steering wheel controls in Ford cars. They recently announced that they are releasing an new smart phone app called SYNC Destinations, a free application for users to SYNC Traffic, Directions and Information that gives them mobile access to search and save destinations to retrieve once in their car.

    “SYNC Destinations leverages the power of your smart phone to manage a user’s SYNC Services account and to plan ahead, sending destination locations to your car and knowing what’s happening on the road ahead of you before you even get behind the wheel,” said Dave Gersabeck, SYNC TDI product manager.

    These choices are terrible if you ask me. The Passport is too big and the Classic seems like a step backwards with the addition of the 'Belt". I
