BlackBerry Link 1.0.0.71 Available for BlackBerry 10 Now!

I figured we'd start with the good stuff: the download link - http://us.blackberry.com/software/desktop/blackberry-link.html RIM as posted a page and a download for BlackBerry Link, for syncing your BlackBerry 10 Smartphone with your PC (only BlackBerry 10, OS7 and older will still need to use Desktop Software). It can also be used to transfer data from an OS7 or older device to your new BB10 Smartphone. For a video on how BlackBerry Link works, check out http://demos.blackberry.com/blackberry-z10/na/us/gen/how-to/blackberry-link/connect-to-computer/blackberry-link/index.html. And for all you Mac users out there, it looks like there's both a PC and a Mac version. Setup seems fairly straightforward. You name your…

Imagination GPU and Qualcomm GPU. We are unsure of the difference between the two as of now, but are awaiting word from RIM.

Send King to BlackBerry Live

So, I missed out on my chance to go to BlackBerry World (now rebranded BlackBerry Live) last year. Was supposed to go to BlackBerry Jam Americas in San Jose and missed out on that. Now, BlackBerry Live is coming up in May. This is your chance to help me finally meet the BlackBerry family I have grown to know. The people I am proud to call my friends. There are two links below. One to help send me to BlackBerry Live, the other is to keep me away from Blackberry Live for @StephenBB81. Stephen doesn't think I deserve to go.…

Marmalade Free PlayBook offer Closed "Due to Exceptional Demand"

There hasn't been a lot of posting going on here at OSBB in the last few weeks; RIM is ramping up for the BlackBerry 10 release, and most of the OSBB/OSBBx team is insanely busy getting apps ported to and made for BlackBerry 10; however, I saw a little something the other day that seems to be some potentially good news for RIM. You might remember the offer from Marmalade that granted developers up to a full year indie license of Marmalade and a 32 gb PlayBook. The terms of the offer said that it would be open from September…

BB10, WebWorks, and Linux - Setting your system up for BlackBerry Development

I intend this blog post to be the first of two, three, or even four posts detailing my personal BlackBerry 10 WebWorks development in Linux; I hope these posts will help other people decide to create BlackBerry 10 WebWorks in Linux, or at least learn a little something interesting. This first post will only go over getting the BB10 WebWorks packaging/signing SDK set up in Linux. A later blog post will go over tools used for actual WebWorks app development. *** After you build a bbUI WebWorks App in Linux, submit it in the OSBBx bbUI.js Contest! *** A few…

PillPad and CF PillPad for BlackBerry Playbook

PillPad is a BlackBerry application for the Playbook, inspired by and created initially for our 1year old son. He was diagnosed with a rare disease, “ghost disease”, Cystic Fibrosis (CF) before birth and the journey has piled us with tons of medications to remember. **Find out more at cff.org** Due to the amount of medications that he and others with CF have to endure, my fiancé and I thought it would be nice to have a program on our Playbooks to help keep us straight with dosages and frequencies. Also to have something on hand in case we were out…

Space TV for BlackBerry PlayBook

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Space TV for PlayBook[/caption]   With NASA's recent success with landing the Curiosity rover (Mars Science Laboratory) on the surface of Mars, many individuals have become more interested in NASA, and by extension space. Space TV, the app, was created to provide users with a simple and responsive interface in which to display the NASA TV live video stream. The version of Space TV currently available in appworld uses the UStream flash video interface for both the main NASA TV stream and the ISS live stream. However, in the version now pending approval in App World,…

Nokia Poll: Qwerty (and, by extension, BlackBerry) is King.

Disclaimer: as far as I can tell, this poll is neither scientific nor unbiased. It is likely that only Nokia phone users/lovers took this poll, and I haven't found any information about how many people from how many countries took it. That being said... Earlier today on CrackBerry I read that a poll had been conducted that asked smartphone users what type of keyboard they prefer. I found the poll and read what I could about it; it seems that it was conducted informally by Nokia, and although I was hesitant at first to post about it on OSBB, I…
