    The first Delta application for BlackBerry users has recently been released by the airlines. The app is available for free and allows you to handle various travel tasks on the go such as:

    • Check in for upcoming flights
    • Download mobile boarding passes (where available)
    • Receive push alerts for flight and gate changes
    • Check flight status and get terminal and gate info
    • Search upcoming flight schedules
    • Get your SkyMiles balance and status
    • Check airport info and weather
    • Save a photo and note your parking spot - great for large airports

    The Delta BlackBerry app should work on most devices running OS 5.0 or higher. If you get it, let us know what you think of this app.

    Last week I was browsing our BBOS store for a new Bluetooth Headset when I came across the Motorola Endeavor HX1. It's really amazing that this headset has been out on the market for over a year now, and still sits at the top of it's class. I've never been a big time bluetooth headset user, but figured I was in need of one after always finding myself having to pull over the car to answer a call. I needed a comfortable headset so that I could drive while talking, and not have to worry about endangering other drivers on the road...

    9 months ago, you may remember how you sat impatiently on your living room couch waiting for your wife to come out of her room with the most unexpected and surprising words..."I'm PREGNANT!" 9 months later you finally submit and you start preparing yourself in expectation of the new addition. But you never expected to have to rush your wife to the hospital so many times and find out it's only false labor pains. Thus the parent app of the week...Contraction Calc...

    PatternLock has quietly been updated to version 2.0.0.5 For BlackBerry touch devices only. If you do not know what PatternLock is, it's "the ultimate customizable lock application allowing you to pick custom colors and images for almost every aspect of the lock screen." Believe me, it is FULLY customizable . Here is what you get:

    Sergey Demyanov, author of the popular app Fancy Characters, is at it again with a very interesting and potentially powerful homescreen widget app for BlackBerry smartphones. As you can see from the above picture, FancyWidgets offers a variety of configurable 'real time' mini-applications or modules to add to your homescreen. Keep in mind, though, that Fancy Widgets is still in beta and there are many little bugs to be worked out before the final release. Here is what I found...

    Thanks to BGR they have given us an extensive review of the Playbook. At over nine minutes, you will get many questions answered. Julian Dolce, Platform Lead of the QNX team, runs through the demo.

    While watching the video, I found that it has a very smooth transition between apps. The jump from one category to another and the navigation into each sub-category is nicely organized. The simplicity of running an application, and then an easy flick to close it is also impressive. The camera looks like a dream come true with 1080p quality, and just a touch away, for all those hams out there, from becoming a front facing camera. One thing missing from the video was a browser test, as they were in an area without internet connection. I guess you will have to wait to get your mitts on it to see that for yourself. Julian said that universal search is what they are actively working on. The keyboard is multi-touch, and it works in both portrait and landscape. You will be able to pair the Playbook with your current device and access the data.

    The SDK is now publicly available, and Appworld is accepting applications. For those that develop an application for the Playbook and are accepted into BlackBerry Appworld, you will receive a free Playbook when they become available. Download the SDK and get those apps up now. Good Luck :sun:
    Enjoy the video and leave your comment after the jump...or see what others have to say:
