    And the games just keep on rolling in for the BlackBerry PlayBook in App World. Now, Rope Rescue joins the party and we're pretty sure PlayBook owners are gonna love this game. Highly addictive and interactive, Union3d did a great job with this game. The price tag of $4.99 may turn some off, but if you like having a good collection of games on your PB, it's definitely worth the money.

    Game Description

    Drag a length of rope through a series of gears, and then finally attach it to the cage to release your friends. Pesky enemies, fire, and other rope-wrecking obstacles threaten feathered freedom. Collect butterflies on the way for special bonuses, and try use as little rope as possible for maximum points.

    • Rope Rescue HD Highlights
    • Puzzling levels will keep you wrapped up for hours.
    • Addictive gameplay with multiple solutions for each level will have you playing for hours.
    • Avoid flying knives, fire cannons and of course the evil bats.

    All you bloggers and writers out there will be quite happy to know that WordPress has updated their BlackBerry smartphone and Andr... PlayBook apps today. The biggest change is for the smartphone app going from v1.5.1 to v1.6 as it introduces a refresh UI, a couple of a new features and a lot of bug fixes.

    The PlayBook update up to v2.1.2 from v2.1.1 is relatively small, but if you're like me and need to keep everything current, you will want to get this one as well.

    It's kind of nice when the RIM heads give us a heads up on what's coming out. Last night, RIM PlayBook Product Manager and all around nice guy, Michael Clewley, sent out the above tweets in response to a question about the 2.1 beta OS for the PlayBook. Stating that the beta would be released at the end of May gives a pretty good idea it'll be out this week because the last day of May is Thursday.

    The beta will be conducted the same way that the original 2.0 beta was done. We're sure devs are anxious to get their hands on the new beta and they will be able to do so very, very soon!

    It seems like it's an everyday occurrence that the BlackBerry maker RIM, is under fire from the media. The excitement over BlackBerry World has been trumped by recent talks of layoffs and the departure of more top RIM executives. The media are often quick to exaggerate news regarding RIM, and sometimes just plain inaccurate in their reports regarding the company. Every now and then its appropriate to set the facts straight.

    The Real Deal

    It would be a bit naive to think that RIM has not had its fair share of issues, and over the past year has given BlackBerry users and investors a wild ride. The truth is, RIM is not doing very well now. Sometimes the facts are hard to swallow for BlackBerry fans, but the fact of the matter is that there are some serious issues that RIM is going through now.

    RIM's stock has declined over 75% over the past year, and are down more than 90% of it's all time high in 2008. Yes, this is something that we have been hearing non stop over that past year, but until it improves we wont stop hearing about it. Before the holidays RIM's stock traded for $11 that is a far cry from $147 its all-time high in 2008.

    A massive surplus of mobile devices isn't helping the company either. We already heard from RIM about their $485 million dollar PlayBook inventory hit in December, and their $267 million BlackBerry inventory expense in January. That is quite a few BlackBerry devices not being sold. Since then the value of RIM's current BlackBerry and Tablet device inventory have grown more than 18% and has an inventory value of more than $1 billion, according to data complied by Bloomberg. In short this is not good. No company wants to be in the positions of having a surplus of their product.

    RIM's Hope

    A large part or RIM's future will be determined by the success of its upcoming BB 10 device. Most consumers are just waiting to get their hands on RIM's new BB 10 devices, but they will have to wait until later this year. Late last year RIM decided to delay the release of their BB 10 super phones. Critics have expressed concerns as to whether or not RIM's current OS 7 devices will hold up consumer interest until then.

    The bottom line is that BB 10 is extremely important to RIM's success. It's not just a hit or a miss, it has to be a grand-slam. It has to deliver and it has to "wow". RIM's recent BB 10 Alpha device has already shown some signs of some exciting things to come. BB 10's rich UI and unprecedented functionality is already getting may excited and is helping to spark new interest in RIM's smartphones. One thing we do know for certain from RIM is that BB 10 will be like nothing we have ever seen before.

    Earlier this year Alec Saunders caused quite the stir when he mentioned that RIM was considering removing the ability to side-load. He quickly cleared things up with a blog post regarding the issue, explaining that RIM would be taking some steps to help minimize piracy. Earlier this week RIM's Inside BlackBerry Developer Blog posted some key points regarding the PlayBook OS 2.0.1 and its built-in protection for developers. The constant battle of piracy has plagued just about every developer and have left company's like RIM as their wits-end just trying to figure out how to combat it.

    For any company to say that its main goal is to eliminate piracy, is just plain silly. Unfortunately piracy is here to stay. However, they can do things to minimize piracy. RIM like other companies have developed ways that make it harder for users to pirate developers apps.

    With the PlayBook's OS 2.0.1 RIM has developed some application protection in hopes that it will slow down the steady stream of piracy. RIM has added a couple new features like the linking of BlackBerry ID's to backup files. This prevents the sharing of backup files between users. RIM has also added the encryption of backup files. RIM is taking the right steps to insure that developers get treated fairly. Make sure you head on over to the Inside BlackBerry Developer Blog for more information.

    Gaming on the PlayBook has just got a little nasty with Gameloft's newest title. 9mm has a Max Payne like, slow motion bullet-time feel with a dip of Grand Theft Auto crudeness. Although it's "M" rating lets us know that this game isn't intended for little "johnny",

    Ingram Micro Inc., the worlds largest technology distributor, has reached a deal with RIM to distribute the BlackBerry PlayBook to re-seller partners in the UK.

    It has been a bit of a rocky road between consumers and RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook, but BlackBerry has still maintained a very strong presence in the business market. RIM's BlackBerry devices are still the choice among many organizations in which security and mobile communications are paramount.

    The BlackBerry PlayBook has been a step up in many organizations ability to be more productive via cloud services. RIM's UK managing director Stephen Bates said that “Our agreement with Ingram Micro will allow us to broaden and enhance our distribution of the BlackBerry PlayBook. We are leveraging our strengths in communications, social integration and productivity with their strengths in unified communications, software solutions and overall channel reach,” This is no little deal Ingram Micro, has local sales offices in 26 countries, has over 105 distribution centers worldwide, represents over 1,300 vendors, and is the only global broad-based IT distributor in Asia. This kind exposure and distribution is exactly what RIM needs for the PlayBook.

    Ingram Micro also has a dedicated team that is focused on unified communications, and cloud business development managers. This makes it an ideal fit for the PlayBook as it fits in well with Microsoft Office 365. “Ingram Micro is once again providing a solid, expansive offering to meet the needs of resellers, Our continued growth in the telecommunications segment and the ongoing convergence of software and mobile technologies, enhanced with the inclusion of Microsoft Office capabilities on BlackBerry smartphones and the addition of the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet to our product portfolio, is driving BlackBerry as a strong platform for mobile users of Microsoft Office 365.” said Matt Sanderson, managing director at Ingram Micro.

    RIM is looking to push the PlayBook even more into its enterprise market and this new move will do just that. The PlayBook is expected to become even more desirable later on this year as it will be compatible with RIM's much anticipated, BB 10 platform.

    XIMAD Inc, the creators of games like Bubble Birds, Brain Cube and others, have decided to give all PlayBook owners a little love with a pretty cool discount. For a limited time, 12 of their most popular premium games have been reduced to $0.99 a piece. Not a bad price to pay for these awesome games.

    Which one is your favorite XIMAD game?

    We've known that BlackBerry 10 will be making its way to the BlackBerry PlayBook since BlackBerry World two weeks ago. The thing is, all the excitement of the BlackBerry 10 demos from the keynote, the Dev Alpha device and all the hype surrounding the Cascades SDK being given to developers made this little tidbit kind of fall between the cracks and go a little unnoticed.

    Today, @BlackBerryDev sent out the above tweet as a reply to a question about Cascades/BB10 on the PlayBook and it served as a little reminder to us. This obviously put a smile on a lot of people's faces that had maybe forgotten about this cool fact.

    Our BlackBerry PlayBooks, which for many users are over a year old, are so solid in terms of hardware, that they will be able to run BlackBerry 10 without any problems. How cool is that? No need to buy anything. All you have to do is make sure you don't break it while we wait.

    While this type of OS application isn't too practical, the PlayBook is shown in this video running the Windows Phone 7 operating system. We have already seen the PlayBook running Android operating systems you can see in a demo video.

    Update: We have found out that this is just a online demo of the Windows Phone 7 OS that the user is scrolling through on the PlayBook browser. Sorry to disappoint fans of the WP7.

    Hey BB fans, just recently we received the update for BlackBerry Bridge that fixed the predictive auto text bug that people reported having in the Playbook update 2.0.1 has been released. After a couple of days, version 2.0.0.31 is now available in the App World for download. The only change log provided is that it fixes the issue where the BlackBerry Bridge is being disabled after upgrading to OS 7.1 of your smartphone. Download the new version of the BlackBerry Bridge and do not forget to share your findings with this new version.

    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 www.shopblackberry.com 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 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.
