    Earlier this month RIM officially launched a new program called BlackBerry Balance that is designed to help business users separate their work from play eliminating the need have multiple BlackBerry devices. Alec Taylor, VP of Platform Product Marketing at RIM, explains the basics in understanding the recently announced BlackBerry Balance solution for smartphone users in the enterprise. If you aren't sure what BlackBerry Balance is, or if the program relates to you, then you'll want to see the video interview (see above).

    BlackBerry just released a new commercial showing off the PlayBook's ability to use Adobe Flash for a awesome browser experience. If you haven't had a hands on with the PlayBook's browser, I suggest you head to your nearest PlayBook retailer and get a demo of Adobe Flash in action. The PlayBook currently runs Adobe Flash v10.2. Can the iPad do that? Not a chance!

    So, we've seen that App World for BlackBerry devices will be updated to version 3 in July or August, but have we seen what it will look like? The answer is, now, yes. The guys over at BBnews have just showed us a screenshot of what looks to be App World v3, and I gotta say, it looks much better than the existing App World User Interface.

    If you do not know what App World is, it is an application portal where almost every BlackBerry application can be accessed and downloaded.

    BBnews claims that App World v3 will have the following features:

    • The latest online store with applications that integrates with BlackBerry Messenger to a large extent, allowing instant and much more powerful "sharing" of valuable items.
    • You can pay for paid applications using your Carrier's phone bill, which is for consumers who do not have an existing PayPal, or whom do not want to register for one.
    • A 'special' section for corporate consumers


    All in all, this looks like a great update for App World. I can't wait to see it on my BlackBerry!

    With the recent Torch OS leak, it was discovered that a few native IM apps were also updated. These apps include AIM, GTalk, Yahoo! & Windows Live Messenger. As these IM app updates were extracted from a OS 6 leak, they will NOT work with OS 5 devices!

    Express yourself with the BlackBerry Feedback Tool – a feedback application especially for your BlackBerry!

    Research In Motion keeps showing love to OS 5 devices. For the last two months, the beta version of Facebook for BlackBerry v2.0 was only available for OS 6 devices. Yesterday, we seen the launch of version 2.0.0.19 that brought a new homescreen icon & support for OS 5.

    Some of the other updated features & tweaks include:

    • Facebook Chat Enhancements: While chatting with your friends, you will now know when they’re typing a message by the visual cue of “is typing a message”. As well, you can filter your Online Contacts to quickly find a specific friend and start a Chat message.

    • View Mutual Friends and Friends List: The ability to view Mutual Friends and Friends List is available from the Info tab on Profiles. With the new Mutual Friends feature, you can discover which of your friends you and another user have in common. And now you can also view a user’s Friends List from their Profile (dependent on Privacy Settings of the user).

    • Enhanced Integration with BlackBerry Native Apps: Facebook v2.0 is even more integrated with BlackBerry smartphone native apps than ever. You can now click on PINs, Phone Numbers, and email addresses displayed in Wall posts, messages or the Info tab, and either perform the respective action (e.g., place a call) or save the information to your BlackBerry Contacts application.

    I'm a huge social media lover & always like to keep myself updated on what my friends are doing & what's going on in the world. When I first got my BlackBerry in May of last year, the first application that I downloaded was Twitter For BlackBerry. At the time, I didn't know better & was mesmerized by it. Over the following months, I slowly learnt of other options, such as Blaq, HootSuite & SocialScope, which all brought new features & a more friendly UI.

    Well, today I am please to announce that RIM has finally launched Twitter for BlackBerry v2.0 in BlackBerry Beta Zone!

    This new version brings many new tweaks to the UI & new features, including:

    • Redesigned Nav Bar
      The Nav Bar has a whole new look with simplified icons that provide a cleaner layout and a more familiar Twitter experience. With a single click, you can quickly access your Home Timeline, @Mentions, Messages, Lists, perform a search from the new Single Search Screen, or submit a tweet with the new “Compose Tweet” button accessible from anywhere in the app.

    • New Compose Tweet Button
      The new “Compose Tweet” button in Twitter for BlackBerry smartphones 2.0 is a single touch-point for creating new tweets from anywhere in the app, making it easier than ever to share your location (if setting is enabled) and photos with your followers.

    • Single Search Screen
      With the new Single Search Screen in Twitter for BlackBerry smartphones 2.0, you can search for tweets, tweets nearby, people, as well as go-to @users all from a single location. From the new Single Search Screen, you can also view Trending Topics and Saved Searches – unifying the entire Twitter Search experience.

      Another great feature for BlackBerry 6 users: Twitter Search works with Universal Search on your BlackBerry smartphone. Search for anything, and Universal Search will pull in relevant results from your entire BlackBerry smartphone, including all Search categories within Twitter.

    • External Notifications
      A new application header notifies you when you receive other types of messages, like BBM messages or email, as well as displaying your network connectivity while in the Twitter for BlackBerry smartphones app – meaning you no longer need to leave the application in order to discover the types of new external notifications you have.

    • New Black/Chrome Color Scheme
      The color scheme throughout the app has been updated to be consistent with the look of the Twitter brand.

    Created by Guzzl3r, Buuf Deuce is a theme which is originally named, in my opinion. This theme has almost everything that a theme buyer would want, including a really nice looking HTC-style clock, custom-made icons, a hidden today, and room for extra icons on the homescreen, while delivering it to you perfectly.

    Contest: The developer of Buuf Deuce has kindly given us 25 copies to give to you. Simply leave a comment for your chance to win a free copy! Contest entry ends Midnight, May 4th. Winners will be announced shortly thereafter.

    Yesterday we posted a rumor that BlackBerry OS 6.1 would become known as BlackBerry OS 7. That rumor now becomes fact as RIM co-CEO, Jim Balsillie has confirmed that OS 6.1 will be now known as OS 7 during a Q&A Investors Call. His reasons are that 'OS 7' includes liquid graphics, magnetometer, and more, which gives the OS enough differences from OS 6. Therefore, labeling the new OS only .1 away is far too minuscule. They concluded that BlackBerry World attendees will not be let down on the coming announcements and clarification.

    The negative about this report is that many users are speculating on whether their newly bought devices that run the current OS 6 will be getting the update to OS 7. Any thoughts to this?

    If you're a big fan of listening to Podcasts on your smartphone, you'll be happy to know that BlackBerry Podcast has been updated to v1.5!

    The update is currently only available in North America, but hopefully we'll see a more global launch in the coming weeks.

    The new/updated features include:
    • Addition of a preview or play option while the podcast is downloading
    • Web podcast searching with integrated Google® search
    • Improved content presentation within categories: the first 40 listings in each category will be “featured content,” a combination of the most popular feeds and RIM-programmed feeds
