BBM 6: App Integration


So if you are a BlackBerry user you hopefully have downloaded BBM 6 today. You may have been a little disappointed not to see any changes to how the application looks and if you have not done any research you may well have been scratching your head wondering what all the fuss was about.

What this latest update has brought to BBM is app integration. There are a full list of apps that support BBM integration over on the BlackBerry Blog but I though the best way to show you quickly how it works is with the below video demonstrating how BBM now works with the popular Foursquare application.

Enough of me waffling. See the video after the break and lets look forward to more and more apps supporting BBM.

I know nothing at all about projectors but luckily ViewSonic know loads and this new range look pretty awesome.

Building upon a successful family of projectors ViewSonic have reinvigorated its PJD5 series with a new generation of products that continue to deliver high quality projection displays.
Weighing only 2.6kg the new generation of PJD5 series projectors are equally at home in the classroom, on the road, or in the boardroom, but now incorporate new additional features. 
The entire family benefits from a sleeker optimised design, which reduces the profile by 20%, making the unit more discreet and adopts the highly successful top cover lamp access design, yet still delivers an enhanced brightness of 2700 lumens.
The range consists of five models aimed at providing users a choice depending upon their requirements; two with SVGA, two with XGA resolution and a WXGA model.
The PJD5133, PJD5233 and PJD5523w come with HDMI connectors, equipping them with all the features needed for a home entertainment or multimedia system.  Every projector in the range is 3D-ready, capable of accepting 120Hz input from sources such as Sky 3D, 3D Bluray or Sony Playstation 3 and when used with ViewSonic’s VP3D1 and PGD-250 3D glasses deliver an amazing 3D experience.

Trevor Holt, European Product Manager for Projectors says “This is the 2nd generation of 5 series projectors which we have improved based on customer feedback.  We have made subtle but important changes, such as introducing a built in presentation timer, mouse control function via the projector remote control and enhanced security with Kensington slot and security bar.   All these new features continue to differentiate ViewSonic projectors from our competitors.”

BBM 6 incoming!


BBM (BlackBerry Messenger), one of the largest mobile social networks in the world is now enabling a new and revolutionary social experience. Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ: RIMM; TSX: RIM) today announced the availability of BBM version 6 (BBM 6), which provides support for "BBM connected" apps, allowing users to easily interact with each other from within the BBM connected app.

BBM connected apps integrate the popular functionality of the BBM service and offer users the ability to interact with their friends from within the app itself. For example, with a BBM connected game app, users can invite their BBM friends to join them in a game and then chat with one another in real time while the game is being played – without ever leaving the game app.

BBM 6 launches today and a selection of BBM connected apps are already available on BlackBerry App World.

“BBM 6 marks the beginning of an even greater social experience for BlackBerry smartphone users,” said Alistair Mitchell, VP, BBM Platform & Integrated Services at Research In Motion. “It also represents an incredible opportunity for developers to leverage the viral nature of the BBM service and we have already begun working with various developer partners who will be bringing their BBM connected apps to BlackBerry App World this week, offering users highly engaging app experiences.”
