    I can't think of another toy I used to love to play with more than my RC car back when I was little. It was just plain and simply great, that's why when I saw the above video, it took me back. Apparently this developer has been able to make it so that his PlayBook not only controls an RC car but can also view what the RC car is seeing. If that's not the definition of cool, I'm not quite sure what is. He had the following to say in the youtube video description:
    Robot controlled and monitored from within the application on the BlackBerry playbook.Communication via the WiFi interface. Robot and playbook work in a shared WiFi network from the terminal BlackBerry 9900 with OS 7.1.0.267.
    I wish I was smart enough to do it myself, but alas I'm not so I'll have to conform to watching cool videos with funky background music like this one.

    We reported recently that RIM was giving away free premium apps in App World to US subscribers in attempts to bolster BlackBerry OS 7 smartphone sales in the US. As I was checking my email today it looks like RIM has stepped up the advertising campaign a bit with a mass email outlining the promo. Although this sucks for the rest of BB users around the world, it's nice to see RIM trying to step up their game among the US market where they have continually fallen in numbers. The total value in apps being given away is $77.00 and can be downloaded free until May 31st. BlackBerry OS 7 users only.

    The Game Developers Conference is currently underway in San Francisco and a couple of interesting things have been popping up, even from RIM. The above picture was taken by the guys over at SemiAccurate and it apparently shows a BlackBerry Torch 9850/60 being used as a controller on a game played with the PlayBook.

    We're assuming this is possible through the Bridge app and a bit of magical engineering added to it as well. Nevertheless, this could bread an entirely different side of game on the BlackBerry PlayBook in the near future. Hopefully we'll get more info about this in the coming days.

    In case you're out of the loop, SayIt for BlackBerry has been updated quite a few times as of recently. Not that it's a bad thing in the slightest. With an update always comes fixes and improvements, and it looks like the SayIt developers are genuinely determined to deliver the best app they can create. With the v1.3.5 update comes:

    • Automatic detection of BES, BIS, Direct Carrier TCP/IP, WiFi and auto-switch to WiFi (if available)
    • Connection issue fixes

    Research In Motion is trying super hard to get the U.S. market to be more friendly to BlackBerry. The latest tactic comes in the shape of more free apps for its loyal users exclusively in the U.S. There are a lot of apps that are being offered for free "compliments of BlackBerry." The best way to find them is to search for the word "compliments." That's how I was able to find the apps that are compatible with my Torch 9860.

    Apparently, for some users, up to 17 apps have been made available compliments of BlackBerry and they're not too shabby either. These apps are available to its U.S. user base until May 31st. If you're thinking that's a long time, it's because it is. Almost 3 months of free downloads is sure to be costing RIM a pretty penny when they have to reimburse the developers.

    This is obviously a move to try to get more people to buy into the BlackBerry 7 device lineup as one of the requirements to download these apps is having a BB7 smartphone. So if you're in the good ol' US of A, get to App World and start downloading.

    Back in August of last year, Samsung announced their new messaging service called ChatOn. Samsung has now decided to open up their messaging service to other platforms including iOS and BlackBerry. They have released the statement below:
    ChatOn is an ideal IM tool for the mobile device user who wants to stay instantly connected to colleagues, friends and family, irrespective of the mobile device or feature phone that they use at no cost. Opening up the application to various platforms to now include iOS and Blackberry in addition to Android and bada, allows consumers to experience a richer, more interactive communication application.
    Another cool idea from Samsung that will appeal to many but unfortunately for them, it still pales in comparison to BBM.

    One could argue that Opera Mini is the best alternative browser for BlackBerry. Personally I use it and actually prefer it over the native browser at times. Personally I like that it renders some pages better than the native browser, and it seems to be faster as well. So needless to say I was happy to hear that version 7.0 has been released for the BlackBerry. Opera has always done a great job supporting BlackBerry devices, so its nice to see it being updated almost in sync with other platforms.

    Before you jump to the download, please note that Opera Next is sort of like a beta version of the "Next" release of Opera Mini. So it will install along side of your existing Opera Mini installation as a white icon. That way if it crashes or does not work correctly you can always remove it, and continue using the stable version.

    This version has quite a few features. Here are some of them taken from the change log:

    Opera Mini Next has the following new features:

    Smart Page

    The most visible new feature is perhaps the redesign of the start screen and the addition of Smart Page. This page gives you an overview of your favorite sites, latest updates from social networks (Twitter and Facebook), news gathered from your favorite sites (via their RSS feeds) and suggested links. Note that you can clear the Smart Page by selecting "Clear history" from the privacy settings.

    Support for more than 9 speed dials

    One common complaint has been the restrictions on the number of speed dials. We have now solved this and you can add as many as you like, or in practice as many as your device can handle. Synching your speed dials between desktop and Opera Mini should be a much nicer experience now. Note that there is a couple of known issue when synching with Opera Link. Speed dials may move around unexpectedly and the order can be inconsistent.

    We have also added a convenient way to add new speed dials: just press the star found in the address bar (touch devices only).

    Improved support for RTL

    Right-to-left text in UI elements should now be correctly drawn. We would like to fix as many of the these bugs as possible, so if you find issues, please report them.

    Tab improvements

    Tabs can now be closed with one click on touch devices. And when you close a tab, Opera Mini will switch to the last used tab.

    No more "www." in address bar

    Most sites today can be used without the WWW prefix. So we have removed it as well. The auto completion still supports it of course.
