    Its been a busy day for Beta Zone members. RIM has now released BBM version RIM is always tweaking its popular messaging program, and just when you thought they could not possible add anything more they always surprise us. Be sure to head on over to the Beta Zone to get this update.

    Here are the new features and enhancements for BlackBerry Messenger 6.2:

    Animated display pictures - More animated display pictures are now built into BBM. Change your picture to suit your mood.

    Change your name or message inline - You can quickly change your name or status message without leaving your contact list by clicking the text at the top of the screen. To exit inline editing, just scroll down.
    You can still access your profile screen by clicking your display picture.

    Streamlined voice notes - When your convenience key set to open BBM, if you highlight a contact in BBM and press the convenience key, you can start recording a voice note. Once you're done, pressing the
    convenience key again will send the voice note. Group chats. You can return to the default
    color at any time.

    BlackBerry Tag enhancements - Adding contacts has never been easier. If your BlackBerry smartphone supports NFC technology, you can turn on the Allow Automatic Invitations by Tapping option. Then, as
    long as you or someone else has BBM open, you can add each other as contacts by
    aligning the backs of your smartphones.

    This feature requires that you both have the latest version of BBM installed on
    smartphones that support NFC technology.

    Resend a message - If a message didn't send (for example, if your smartphone was outside of a wireless
    coverage area), you can highlight the message and select Resend from the menu.

    Search - When typing the name of a contact or group, the search ignores special characters and
    emoticons to make it easier to find what you're looking for.

    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
    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.
