RIM Confirms App Versions Preloaded on BlackBerry 7 Devices

BlackBerry 7 Lineup

RIM sent out their monthly BlackBerry Connection: Enterprise Edge customer email today and it contained an interesting tidbit. In it RIM details some of the pre-installed apps and services that will ship on BlackBerry devices. Some of them point to definite upgrades while other point to later launches which is why this is interesting. For example Documents to Go Premium 3.0 is shipping in full for free along with an updated BlackBerry Maps 6.1. BlackBerry Protect is also getting version 1.1 along with Social Feeds bumping up to 2.0. On the other hand App World remains at 2.1 along with the IM clients staying at v2.5.

Check out the full list below:

  • BlackBerry® Maps 6.1
  • Facebook® for BlackBerry® smartphones 2.0
  • Social Feeds 2.0
  • Twitter® for BlackBerry® smartphones 2.0
  • Windows Live™ Messenger for BlackBerry® smartphones, Yahoo!® Messenger for BlackBerry® smartphones and Google Talk™ for BlackBerry® smartphones 2.5
  • Music Storefront (Amazon MP3 for BlackBerry smartphones 1.0)
  • BlackBerry® Messenger 6.0
  • BlackBerry App World™ storefront 2.1
  • BlackBerry® Podcasts for BlackBerry smartphones 1.5
  • BlackBerry® Protect 1.1

  1. No surprise, but glad to see these shipping with BBM6 preinstalled.

    I don’t think we will see AppWorld 3.0 until October or so…

  2. Okay, you have me miffed! You teased with “Some of them point to definite upgrades while other point to later launches which is why this is interesting.”

    Are you suggesting that RIM will be providing an upgrade soon for IM clients and App World via the carriers?

    Which brings me to another nagging issue! Do you think RIM will continue to push upgrades via the carriers (i.e., carrier approved & certified) or is there a plan (somewhere in the ether) to push upgrades directly to devices. At least they should allow users to get upgraded core software, not just apps via App World.

  3. I think that wikitude was also a preloaded app blackberry 7?
