Remember the Breaking New Ground BlackBerry Technical Seminar that happened last Wednesday? Of course you do, because you followed along diligently from your computer! Well, in case you somehow missed it (for shame), RIM’s Developer Support Guru™ Mike Kirkup gave a seminar on what great new tools are coming next for BlackBerry developers. Here’s a rundown of what’s coming:
* Gears support – Kind of like Google gears, which allows users to access and store web content locally on their BlackBerry.
* BIS-B Push applications – Push to BIS public devices (making WebSignals irrelevant) and push data to applications (think IM clients)
* SQlite applications on device – Think about a database of information on your BlackBerry like a clients list or price list
You may remember that support for Gears and BIS-B Push was originally announced during the BlackBerry Developers Conference, but it’s good to know that it’s inching ever closer to release. You can see a few more slides from the seminar after the jump.
