BerryBuzz has been one of the best selling BlackBerry apps for some time now and it’s surprising that RIM didn’t include the same custom LED functionality in BlackBerry 6. Considering the popularity of this app, it’s clearly something that BlackBerry users would use more if it were native. On the other hand, it’s good to keep the app economy thriving and you don’t want to eat everyone’s lunch.

BerryBuzz has recently been updated to version 3.1.11 and it now features:

  • Added support for Google Voice, AP Mobile, Nimbuzz, latest SocialScope Beta, Trillian, Pingchat, Kik Messenger, Blaq, Pocket Informant, myKite and OS 6 social feeds
  • Fixed IM+ support
  • Added item search/filter (simply start typing while in the BerryBuzz list)

Check out the latest version of BerryBuzz in the store.

The latest official video for the upcoming BlackBerry 6 shows off a lot of what we have already seen but adds a few details about the upcoming Social Feeds feature. Social Feeds, which we can only assume is the reason for Viigo’s acquisition, integrates all your news and social networks into one destination. There is a brief view of the new feature in the video, so you should definitely check it out.

In addition to the smooth new user interface, the new video illustrates a few of the new applications and features in BlackBerry 6 including:

  • Redesigned home screen
  • Universal search
  • Context-sensitive pop-up menus
  • Revamped BlackBerry Browser powered by WebKit
