    With all of the excitement behind RIM's new BlackBerry 10 OS platform, many are wondering what will become of BBM. The messaging client has become a central figure among BlackBerry users and has been a huge selling point for RIM. The lack of a native BBM client on the PlayBook have turned some consumers away, and has left others thinking about its relationship to the BB 10 platform.

    RIM has made an announcement today that they have signed a deal with a well-known mapping and navigation company, TomTom, to improve the quality of the BlackBerry Traffic application. RIM has partnered themselves with one of the leading companies in providing real-time traffic information. In my opinion, this partnership will definitely bring the development of BlackBerry 10 to the next level. Although RIM said nothing about that, I am still excited about what will happen in the following days. See the press release below for more information and do not forget to leave comments on what you think!

    We have heard the last time from RIM CEO Thorstein Heins that they will be adding new names on their executive leadership team for the betterment of the company. Today, they have announced that Kristian Tear (formerly as an Executive Vice President for Sony Mobile Communications) and Frank Boulben (formerly as an Executive Vice President of Strategy, Marketing and Sales for LightSquared) are the new Chief Operating Officer and Chief Marketing Officer respectively. Given the companies where they have come from, it seems that they will be of great help to RIM's success and for the development of the BlackBerry 10. It is too early for us to say, however, let us all hope that RIM made the right choice in welcoming them to the team. To know more information about this, check out the report and let us discuss it in the comments!

    The Inside BlackBerry Blog has officially announced the month of May's BlackBerry Fan of the Month! This time the award goes out to Mark (@AllAboutMyBB)! Mark goes way back in the BlackBerry history as he has been a BB user going on 12 years now. I'm guessing he was an old blue kind of guy. Let's all give Mark a big congrats on receiving this prestigious award!

    If you haven't been keeping up, starting January, BlackBerry has been selecting one lucky fan to become the BlackBerry FOTM. Some of you may even recognize the very first selected FOTM, @newshutr, who is also a writer for our Blog!

    Here is an interview the Inside BB blog conducted with Mark - BlackBerry FOTM of May 2012:

    Move over LocalBar, BBHTool, and DDPB the next biggest PlayBook utility has just arrived. Enter PlayBook App Manager, a new gem in the PlayBook management utility software department. Designed by George J this web manager will take complete control over your PlayBook apps, and much more. Easy to install, and implement the PlayBook App Manager has taken over the throne as the ultimate PlayBook utility.

    I could not have been more excited to see a web-based application that is robust yet so simple. My hats off to the developers behind
    PlayBook App Manager. So without further ado, lets jump into some details about PlayBook App Manager.

    The PlayBook App Manager can do many things, and although its primary purpose is add and remove programs from your PlayBook it can also do things like terminate processes. Yes, even Android processes. Now we finally have an Android Kill Switch! In addition things like multiple installs, device information, and application information as available as well.

    The PlayBook App Manager is a simple Chrome and Monzilla extension that integrates seamlessly with either browser. All you have to do is enter your PlayBook's ip something like a 192.168.x.x if your PlayBook is on your local LAN or 169.0.x.x if its plugged in via USB. In short you can manage your device over wifi or via USB.

    Some of the main features include:
    Main Features


    1. Save your password in the browser for auto login (or not if you choose not to). Some tricks are done to save half of usual login time.
    2. List all the apps installed. Query run status, launch, terminate, or uninstall any individual app.
    3. Install apps by a queue. Multiple apps may be added to the queue by choosing files in a dialog or a simple drag and drop. Apps may be removed from the queue and installation may be aborted. Installation status is displayed in two steps: file uploading (to the playbook) with a progress bar and the actual installation with echoed messages.
    4. Auto retry for any incomplete installation or uninstallation.
    5. Log and categorize all the results of installations. Locate each one of them by a simple click.


    I do not want to diminish usefulness of the other PlayBook utilities, but this one takes the cake. Make sure you check out the PlayBook App Manager main website at Playbook App Manager . Thanks for the guys over at OSBB for finding this gem. Make sure you keep it right here for some more surprises.

    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.
