    Finally, the BlackBerry OS 7.1 is officially released in the Philippines via Globe Telecom, Inc. Although OS 7.1 has been released to some other countries already and can be used by everyone, we cannot blame the others who haven’t got the guts to use it on their devices for some reasons. This is definitely great news to every Filipino BlackBerry fan who has been waiting for this official release for quite some time now.

    Filipinos will be able to experience this awesome operating system and utilize cool added features like BlackBerry Tag that can change the way BlackBerry users share information and content. By simply tapping their NFC-enabled BlackBerry Bold 9900 smartphone against another NFC-enabled BlackBerry smartphone, users can make sharing easier than ever! They can instantly invite a friend to BBM (BlackBerry Messenger), exchange contact information, documents, URLs, photos, apps and other multimedia content, and they can also pair their BlackBerry smartphone with an NFC-enabled Bluetooth device. With BlackBerry 7.1 OS, customers can be productive virtually anywhere. They can now turn their BlackBerry smartphone into a Mobile Hotspot that can be shared by up to five Wi-Fi-enabled devices, including laptops and tablets.

    We all remember the Nintendo Emulator for PlayBook that was released awhile back ago in which users were able to play old school NES games. Now, BB user Catalystg has released a PlayStation 1 Emulator for PlayBook! Now you can play some old school Tekken, GTA, Tony Hawk, ect. Also, BBOS member RDilus has shared a video demo in our forums he made playing Tekken and Rayman2. This PS1 emulator looks to be running rather smooth in the video, which is to no surprise as the PB is a game running machine. Head to the forums to see the video demo and be sure to leave us a comment if you install the emulator on your tablet!

    Here is a snippet of promising news - The BlackBerry 10 OS has tested better than the current PlayBook OS 2 in a HTML5 compatibility browser test with a score of 361. The results on HTML5test.com do not reveal any detail of the BB 10 device in question, but we can count on one powerhouse of a browser when it launches later this year. Having used the new PB OS 2.0 browser regularly, I can say that I'm ecstatic to surf with OS 10!

    The tutorial below was written by a guest blogger, Julianna, from the Inside BlackBerry Blog. Thanks Julianna for the great tutorial!

    One of my favorite new features in BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 is the ability to use my BlackBerry smartphone to control my BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. This feature is particularly useful when my BlackBerry PlayBook tablet is connected to an HDMI-equipped TV. At home, I can control my BlackBerry PlayBook tablet from my couch and have the contents displayed on my TV with the audio output through my home theater system. At a meeting at work, I can apply the same functionality to share documents, web pages, videos, slideshows and more on a large display screen for everyone to see.

    If you haven’t tried this feature already, keep reading to learn how you can do this too!
