BlackBerry Java SDK v7.1 Going Gold Today

BlackBerry 10 Announcement

Well it is all about how you translate today but Alec Saunders of RIM has confirmed that the BlackBerry 7.1 SDK will be going gold today. They are in Singapore so today may mean the next 24 hours but still that means it is coming out of beta. That is nice to see before the OS actually ships. Now we can only hope that carriers are getting their act together and releasing these 7.1 OS builds starting this month!

You can check this page to see if the BlackBerry Java SDK 7.1 Gold release goes live.

  1. Any chance of a 7.1 leak for the 9810 soon? I’d love to get WiFi hotspot capability.

  2. Two days later, still no 7.1 SDK Gold release??

  3. The download looks to be available now

    BlackBerry Java SDK v7.1

    The BlackBerry Java SDK v7.1 builds upon the APIs and tools released with the BlackBerry Java SDK v7.0. The SDK allows developers to utilize several new key hardware features available on BlackBerry smartphones with 7.1 software, namely, the FM Radio tuner and Near Field Communication (NFC) P2P functionality. APIs have been added in this release to integrate with the new hardware, provide new functionality to developers and resolve some of the existing issues identified by the developer community.

    Major new features include

    NFC P2P
    The NFC Peer-to-Peer API allows applications to share files and other data through NFC technology initiated communication with Bluetooth® handover.

    FM Radio
    The FM Radio API is designed to give applications the ability to manipulate FM tuner settings on BlackBerry smartphones with supporting hardware.

    Profiles API
    The Profiles API brings more Super App features to applications, allowing them to query current profile settings and adjust their own application behavior accordingly or, conversely, intelligently change the current profile to match the user’s current activities.

    Other new features included in the SDK

    Magnetometer — calibration changes
    ICCID of SIM

  4. The Gold is probably going to be only a re-labeled beta anyway. So not that big of a deal 😉

  5. One week later and it has finally arrived 😉
