    Spotify has finally come out of the public beta they were running and will now be available to certain BlackBerry users via App World.

    For those of you wondering, Spotify is an app that allows you to stream tons of songs directly to your BlackBerry device with a simple click. It's actually a really nifty app and does all its functions extremely well. Many that have tried the beta out rave about it so it's definitely cool to see it finally hit App World.

    Now, why did we say only a certain amount of BlackBerry users can get it? Well, Spotify has informed us that the app currently only supports certain GSM and CDMA carriers' BlackBerry devices. Apparently, Verizon BlackBerry devices are one of the group that isn't being supported right now.

    No word on if/when other devices will be supported but we definitely hope that is the case in the near future. For now though head on over to App World and check to see if your device is supported. Leave us a comment below to let us know if your device/carrier is supported!

    It has been confirmed by the fine folks over at N4BB.com, that the much anticipated BlackBerry 10 phone is ahead of schedule. The phone, who's launch, has been rumored to be in October, may possibly be released earlier than October. Makes a September launch sound fantastic, doesn't it? Or dare to dream...a late August release. I'm not getting my hopes up for August but September for a device release sounds wonderful.

    The news keeps getting better as it as also been confirmed that RIM has taken a step away from the black and chrome from the phones and the black matte of the Playbook. Another interesting piece of news is that the physical keyboard version of the BlackBerry 10 phone is in the last stage of production. All very interesting and exciting news!! Makes me all excited for the end of summer. Let's hope the wait goes by quickly.

    Let's all hope that things keep moving ahead of schedule and we all get the BlackBerry 10 phone in our hands sooner than later!

    Evernote for PlayBook has now been updated to v1.3. The Evernote app lets you remember and recall anything that happens in your life. From notes to ideas to snapshots to recordings, put it all into Evernote and watch as everything instantly synchronizes from your BlackBerry phone or tablet and to your Mac or PC. No changelog with this release, so I imagine that this version takes care of bugs fixes. Get updated and let us know of any findings/fixes that you may notice!

    When news broke out that Scalado, the company behind RIM's BlackBerry 10 camera technology, was acquired by Nokia, many were a little worried RIM would have problems getting this functionality onto BlackBerry 10 fully.

    Today, Nokia SVP of Program and Product Management, Kevin Shields stated: "We're doing it in such a way that Scalado can...fully deliver on commitments they've made to all of their partners, that includes RIM."

    So now we can all breathe a sigh of relief due to this latest development. We will have the time machine camera, as I like to call it, on BlackBerry 10.

    Once again RIM has given us a sneak peek into its innovative BlackBerry 10 OS. The BlackBerry 10 platform has slowly been making more appearances due to RIM's BlackBerry 10 Jam world tour. Although RIM has been keeping the lid on most of the features that make up BB 10 we have been given enough of a taste to know that RIM is on to something very good here.

    The BlackBerry 10 Jam world tour made its way to New York; and our Senior Editor AgentBlackBerry had the chance to sit down with RIM's principal architect, Gary Klassen to get a hands-on look at some of the features that BlackBerry 10 has to offer.
