New Blackberry Os 6 And What It Means To Developers

Blackberry has completed its ten years in mobile handsets industry and her comes one of the best Os versions you have ever seen in a Blackberry device. Recently at the WES 2010 Blackberry announced it much awaited Blackberry OS 6 with a pack full of features like Webkit browser and revamped UI. The OS will be featured in the new Blackberry Torch and then for newer Blackberry phones.
Top 6 features of Blackberry OS
Multi-Touch Interface : The new Blackberry OS has got multi-touch capabilities for touchscreens. This is a bit surprising as Blackberry is known for its traditional hard keyword systems. All though off beat it is a good move by blackberry especially considering the future Multi-Touch has got.
New Webkit browser:
The new BlackBerry browser now offers pinch-to-zoom and touchscreen scrolling. That will be great for touchscreen models, and could bring BlackBerry browsing up to speed with iPhone and Android. The web kit makes browsing on the web faster, smooth and less frustrating too.
Redesigned home screen
The old school blackberry interface is off and the new homepage interface looks very meaningful and user friendly.
Universal search
Following the lead of Palm webOS and iPhone, BlackBerry 6 will offer an all-device search that will help you find mail messages, contacts, apps, songs, videos, etc. And it will let you extend the search out to the Web if what you’re searching for isn’t on the device itself.
Context-sensitive menus
The BlackBerry key has always served as a menu button to provide additional options (kind of like right-click on a PC). BlackBerry 6 extends that concept into the touch interface. So this is another way Blackberry is shifting to touch from hardware.
Social tools
The new Blackberry OS has integrated social hooks in to the platform. This allows social media users to update Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) all at once. And also one can view the social feed at once in a single or multiple columns.
These features will surely excite any Blackberry App Developers.

Blackberry or iPhone…..

Today most of us have this obvious question of choosing the best smartphone for ourselves.
Should we buy the iPhone or go for the Blackberry ??

Let’s see….do we want to be stuck with the same old physical appearance of the iPhones or are we looking for the new and exciting ever changing designs of the Blackberry handsets.
Keeping looks aside can Blackberry beat the amazing features of the iPhone and more importantly �� DO WE ACTUALLY NEED THEM ??
Over the past few years RIM has been constantly launching new models with new features also keeping in mind to change the {physical appearance|designs} of its handsets. Right from sliders like the Torch or the latest addition to the Blackberry Curve family the all new Curve 9360.
Rumors are already out that 2 more new additions shall be made to this i.e. the Curve 9350 and Curve 9370 very soon.
So let us see what is really important to you as an individual before deciding the right phone for you�..
1. Touch or QWERTY ? � Ask yourself this �. What am I more comfortable with using ? What are my daily needs from my phone ? Keep in mind that even though the iPhone is a touch screen but the typing accuracy in it isn’t bad at all.
2. Apple App Store or Blackberry App World ? � Even though the Apple App Store provides a large number of apps and based on its popularity you are more likely to find a turnkey solution for your problem but the BB App World is no less. Also a number of apps that are paid in the Apple App Store are freely available on the BB App World and not to forget the Android Store as well. So are the Apple store Apps developers ripping us based on the iPhone’s popularity?
3. Social Connectivity / Needs ? � Unlike the iPhone, Blackberry has its own chat network for you to communicate all throughout the globe amongst Blackberry users i.e. the Blackberry Messenger or as most people call it the BBM. Look amongst your social community i.e. friends, family or business and decide DO YOU ACTUALLY WANT IT ??
4. Complexity � Apart from the regular issues of user friendliness on which I personally believe that the iPhone supersedes the Blackberry (Just my opinion) there are also issues of upgrades and third party application installs. Both the phones have their positives and negatives. Upgrading and restoring an iPhone is far easier than the BB but when it comes to third party applications the Blackberry functions smoother since in an iPhone you need to Jailbreak it first before proceeding with any installation.
5. Unlocking � This is one of those things that most people worry about and also need it the most at some point in their lives. As we all know that to avail the maximum benefits from your phone whether it be while travelling i.e. on Roaming or as a matter of fact even while reselling the handset incase you have upgraded or purchased a new handset, UNLOCKING YOUR HANDSET can be a real money saver and even increase the resale value of your phone.
Most of us are scared to do so since we are worried about either voiding our warranty or damaging the handset. First let me tell you that the best and safest ways to do this are only via remote IMEI unlocking solutions i.e. NO SOFTWARE / CABLES and NO NEED TO PHYSICALLY TAKE OR SHIP OUT YOUR PHONE.
The Blackberry is cheaper to unlock and should cost around $7 to $10 per handset irrespective of the network and country it is locked to on the other hand iPhones should only be FACTORY UNLOCKED to avoid any hassles of relocking it on upgrading. The costs involved in the case of iPhones can range anywhere between $100 to $200 depending on the network and country it is locked to.
You must also bear in mind that Apple keeps on improvising on its security and hence all networks are not unlocked on the iPhones. Also, sometimes it takes months for the unlocking solution to actually hit the internet before you can avail it.
TIME TO DECIDE��
Looks , Functionality , Convenience , Usability and most importantly REQUIREMENTS�.Once you have the answer to all these questions trust me it won’t be a difficult decision anymore.
Having said that incase you already own one of the handsets from either of the manufacturers and you wish to get it unlocked , here are the most reliable , tried and tested unlocking services available on the internet.

CHEERS and hope to have solved your Smartphone dilemma.

IPhone Application Development: 5 Must-Have 2011 IPhone Apps For Your IPhone

iPhone application development has become a big business with iPhone apps being created for every imaginable product and concept. While some iPhone apps give greater facility to business, while some others add value to life. And there are some other apps that a just pure fun! This article lists 5 must-have apps that every iPhone user should have. iPhone application development took off with a bang a few years ago, and today there are a number of companies developing innovative and fun apps. It’s not easy (actually, it’s impossible) to choose five of the best iPhone apps for 2011 as an incredibly large number of apps have been developed in first quarter of the year. We have formed a list of 5 best iPhone apps on the basis of their popularity, their usefulness and their capacity to entertain and instruct. This is obviously not an authoritative list, but while these may not be the best apps for the year, they are definitely worthy enough to occupy a few megabytes of your phone memory! Schedulicity: Missed any important appointment recently? Or did your phone remind you about a meeting scheduled five minutes later while you were 20 miles away from the destination of the meeting and heading in the opposite direction? Schedulicity has been, since a long time, very popular software service for computers, and now it has found its way to the iPhone. Now you don’t need a computer to manage you day: you can do it over you iPhone, and your smartphone will remind you of the meeting in time. This app has already caught the imagination of entrepreneurs running small businesses as it not just makes managing business schedules easier, it also make it fun! Star Walk: This app is the perfect example of how well iPhone application development can combine fun with utility. When you are getting bored at your office desk, you can take off with this app, check out our galaxy, and even travel through time! But the app is not just a fun app; it is also very useful for people studying astronomy as amateurs or professionals. Using its Telrad feature, you can measure distances (angular) between stars and the app also has a substantial catalogue detailing objects in the galaxy. Kindle: It been a long time since Kindle created its big splash in the market, and while it has lost its ‘wow!’ factor, it’s still selling steadily. For people who’ve graduated from reading on computers to reading on their iPhones, this is the best book app for iPhone available in the market. The Kindle app is wonderful for people who enjoy reading, but don’t like to carry books around. It also allows you to tap a word to see its meaning on Google, Wikipedia or an inbuilt dictionary. Bear Grylls: Aptly named about a man who is known as Britain’s Born Survivor, this app ha every survival tip you’d ever need. Not many are likely to be stranded on a deserted island or fall off a cliff into a cold stream, but those who do will be much better off with this app in their iPhone! CoPilot 9: This app shows that iPhone application development is not just about functionality, but also about imagination. Google navigation devices are quite good at what they do, but CoPilot 9 does it in a better style. Not only does the latest version of the CoPilot 9 gives you various routes to reach your destination, it also has a ‘walking mode’ that helps you navigate your way through select cities on your foot (great when you’re trying to walk home after a pint too many!).

The Critically Acclaimed IPhone 4 Features a Built-in IPod, Acclaimed IPhone 4, The IPhone 4S With Unlimited Data, Apple – IPhone 4S

Description When you’re on the go, the Apple Store app is the best way to research, personalize, and buy products from Apple, and get help at the Apple Retail Store. It’s also the easiest way to get a new iPhone — right from your current iPhone.* Here’s what you can do with the Apple Store app on your iPhone or iPod touch: – Buy products on the go and pick them up at your favorite Apple Retail Store, or have 
them shipped to your door. – Personalize an iPad or an iPod with free engraving, plus get signature gift wrapping for 
select Apple products. – Buy an iPhone with just a few taps.* – While in an Apple Store, quickly purchase accessories on your own with EasyPay 
(requires iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S) – Request help, check in for reservations, and meet up with a Specialist at the store. – Make Genius Bar and One to One reservations and sign up for workshops and events. * Rate plans for AT&T and Verizon Wireless are available through the Apple Store app. To purchase iPhone with a Sprint plan, visit the Apple Online Store or an Apple Retail Store.

(U.S. only) – EasyPay: Purchase select accessories in store quickly by scanning the barcode and completing your transaction right in the app. (U.S. only, requires iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S) – Track your stuff: View the status of current and previous orders from the order status section in the More tab. – Additional international support (Canada, China). – Requires iOS 4.2 or higher When you’re on the go, the Apple Store app is the best way to research, personalize, and buy products from Apple, and get help at the Apple Retail Store. It’s also the easiest way to get a new iPhone — right from your current iPhone As with the previous iPhone models, users require iTunes to be installed on their computer to active their iPhone. So from the start, all iPhone users have iTunes. Apple has cleverly used this to allow users have instant access to virtually any music track, movie, TV show etc. And the fact that every user has an iTunes account which can be accessed on the phone means users are merely seconds away from downloading anything available in the iTunes store, straight to their phone. The fact that the device also doubles up as an iPod means that users have the unique customisation and library features of the innovative iPod touch. With iPhone 4 models starting at 16GB users can store their entire music collection on their phone. Whilst competing smartphones offer similar systems, nothing comes close to Apple’s products in terms of simplicity and ease of use. Rival companies may be catching up when it comes to offering downloadable music, but Apple has the edge as iTunes was available before the first iPhone. This has given them the chance to make leaps and bound in this respect whilst others are just starting to offer similar services. AppStore Obviously, the AppStore is one of the major selling points of the iPhone 4. The manufacturer has even dedicated TV adverts to this aspect of the phone, rather than advertising the iPhone itself. The AppStore is no doubt responsible for the majority of the iPhone’s success. The AppStore offers users hundreds of thousands of applications (at the time of writing, there are over 350,000 available, and Apple recently announced its billionth App download), ranging from free to several hundred dollars. Apps from several different categories are available, and therefore, users can enhance every aspect of their device as well as truly make it their own. In fact, it is doubtful that there are many iPhone users who only have the pre-installed apps on their device. Apps are big business; an example of a successful App is “Angry Birds”. This is a simple strategy game which only costs £0.59 or $0.99, and has been downloaded over 12 million times. Of course, there is much more to the AppStore than just games. There are productivity tools which can make the iPhone 4 an invaluable companion in the workplace. Additionally, many location based services are available. SatNav apps can be downloaded, essentially replacing the need for a separate device, and the same can be said for standalone MP3 players and digital cameras. It would be impossible to cover the enormity of the content available on the AppStore, but there is no doubt that its contribution to the success of the iPhone 4 is vast. Of course there is much more to the iPhone 4 than the ecosystem which Apple has created for it. It can do just about everything than any other smartphone can do. I personally think though, that a major contributing factor to its success is the fact that a single iPhone can replace numerous devices such as a digital camera, MP3 player, SatNav unit and to some extent even a laptop.
