I am not sure what to make of this one so let us know if you figure out more info. Tim let me know that RIM has announced BlackBerry News App v1.1 in their official forums. The thing is nobody has spotted the app in App World yet though that has not stopped RIM from changing the description to reflect v1.1 and putting up knowledge base articles about it. My current theory is that this new version is only available for OS 7.0 devices in App World though this version simply brings it to closer parity with what Viigo use to have before RIM acquired it.
The new version 1.1 of BlackBerry News adds:
- Language support for English, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese
- Unified Search for BlackBerry News articles on the device
- All New items folder view
- Google Reader Import
- BlackBerry ID for OS 7.0 support
Let us know if you spot the update at this link in App World for your device
