    Leaked BlackBerry 6 Developer Briefing reveals upcoming API's


    Recently a powerpoint presentation leaked from the BlackBerry 6 Developer Briefing revealing some expected and known upcoming API features. We can look forward to a more intuitive user experience with a complete overhaul of the home screen and its capabilities. Personally I am excited about the attention given to improving the address book. Making use of BlackBerry hardware the side buttons have been given more capabilities for even better utilization and access to apps and folders. One of the most eagerly awaited improvements is the browser - finally improving the functionality and ability of the browser will allow the BlackBerry line up to be on par with competitive smartphones. Seems that OS 6 will enable us to experience BlackBerry products like never before with so many new capabilities and improvements abound due to RIM's hard work. Confirmation of what we can expect in the upcoming release of BlackBerry 6!

    I am really happy to see this.
    I have been anxiously awaiting the release of the Storm 3 along with these much needed improvements. I have faith that this will be killer for Blackberry, RIM, and all of us.
