BlackBerryCool Roundup for the Week of June 14th

Comments

If you haven’t noticed, it’s sort of Developer Month here on BlackBerryCool. With the BlackBerry Developers Conference coming up in September, we’ve prepped some quality content that is very relevant to anyone looking to build Super Apps. In particular, make sure you check out the following articles:

Technical Details on Upcoming BlackBerry Webkit Browser in OS 6
What BlackBerry OS 6 Means for Developers and Super Apps

These articles give you a very comprehensive look at what features to expect in OS 6 in terms of APIs as well as the new WebKit browser. Also very pertinent to developers: RIM recently soft-announced App World 2.0 which features carrier and credit card billing, as well as a host of improvements to make the whole experience easier to navigate. We’re expecting all developers to see a surge in downloads once App World begins to roll out preloaded.

Other than that, we’ve got a ton of content that came up this week including a very in-depth review of the latest BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9100. We also have a series of exclusive World Cup 2010 themes you can download from us for free! Be sure to hit the jump and catch up on a week of news.
