    That's right folks. The official BlackBerryOS.com (BeBeOS) app for BlackBerry PlayBook has now been approved and is ready for you to download via BlackBerry App World! We reported a couple weeks ago that we had just submitted the app, and now today the day has finally come. However, instead of being called simply the BBOS or BlackBerryOS app, due to App World guidelines, we had to call it the BeBeOS app in the store. Close enough.

    So don't wait, get it downloaded today and keep up on what's new from the REAL #1 BlackBerry fan site out there!

    Looks like RIM is still interested in the concept of fuel cell technology. The company has just filed for two similar patents one for the frame of a device and the other for the fuel tank itself. Now if your like me then you may be wondering if having some sort of fuel tank on a mobile device is safe.

    Not to bore anyone with a history lesson, but the concept of fuel cells have been around since the mid 1800's . Since then it has been used by NASA and other companies for commercial use.

    Either way patents are a nice way to see what direction a company is heading in their R&D department. Could this mean longer battery life? Will we one day have to charge our devices in the same way you would charge a butane lighter? Very interesting to say the least.

    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!

    RIM has brought another improvement to some of their smartphones which helps the visually impaired BlackBerry fans to better use their devices using the new Screen Reader feature. It is a free app that is only available for BlackBerry Curves 9350, 9360 and 9370 which I know will be a great help to those users with visual impairments. To see the complete information about the Screen Reader, check out the report presented below and do not forget to leave your thoughts in the forum.

    BlackBerry has posted a video that reflects back on attendees reactions to the new features that were revealed during the BlackBerry World 2012 keynote. The main features we were able to see live were the video "back in time" editing feature, the new smart keyboard, and the multi-app integration flow design that allows you to flow from one app to the other. If you missed the Keynote, you can see the entire Keynote video here. Also, be sure to check out some recently leaked screenshots of BlackBerry 10 OS.

    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.
