BlackBerry 10 Wrap-Up

Today was a big day for RIM. At BlackBerry World, they needed to impress customers, developers, and the tech press with BlackBerry 10, and while it doesn’t seem like a slam dunk, what has been seen so far seems to have been met with a positive reception. It’s been a busy day, but so far we’ve seen a BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device, basic functionality of the OS, and a demo of various apps coming to the platform.

If Angry Birds Space doesn’t satisfy your BlackBerry PlayBook gaming needs, how about original PlayStation games? An enterprising developer on the Crackberry forums has created a PlayStation emulator for the PlayBook, allowing you to play a myriad of 1994 games on the 7-inch tablet. It’s still a work in progress, so some games may fail to load, but hey: it’s PlayStation on your tablet.

RIM has released an update today for its BlackBerry PlayBook OS, bringing the platform up to version 2.01.358. Although it's not nearly as big of an update as when the company released version 2.0, which finally brought the long promised native email, calendar, and contacts apps as well as Android app support, this new update does bring some welcome performance improvements and bug fixes.

RIM 4G Playbook photos spotted in the wild

If you thought Research in Motion's bungled Playbook tablet was on the way out, think again. It looks like RIM is not giving up on its iPad challenger, even though that game is an uphill battle for the strongest companies with the biggest momentum, much less ones that have lost double-digit market shares over the last year or so. Nevertheless, there might be a refresh in the Playbook world and its name is 4G.

RIM Blackberry Playbook boasts a million and counting

Determined to actually drive some good publicity for itself, Research in Motion has announced that more than a million Playbook tablets have made their way to end users, a little over a year after it was first introduced to the market. Of course, at this point RIM is losing money on every Playbook it sells, and probably isn't making that money back on apps and content, so the good news only goes so far.

RIM: Chillax about BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha, we just squashed a PlayBook

RIM may be giving up to 2,000 developers a BlackBerry 10 device at the BlackBerry Jam event in early May, but the company is keen to point out that we shouldn't extrapolate too much from either hardware or software about the next-gen smartphones. In fact, the OS running on the device - dubbed the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha - won't even be true BlackBerry 10, instead "a prototype running a modified version of the PlayBook OS which will help developers design their apps for the BlackBerry 10 smartphone form factor."

BlackBerry PlayBook appears with 4G LTE and HSPA+ at the FCC

After more than a year of waiting, BlackBerry users will finally be able to purchase an HSPA+ or 4G LTE PlayBook here in the USA. The FCC has revealed these two versions of the one and only BlackBerry tablet to the world before RIM has formally had a chance to show it off in the wild, and not one whole heck of a lot more than that is known as the moment. This version of the tablet has been tipped perviously to be coming with an upgraded series of specs such as NFC and a dual-core 1.5GHz processor under the hood.
