This summer, with the release of BlackBerry 6, the loyal BlackBerry users will finally have some of the modern options that other smartphones have, along with a host of slick features that will surely convert a few fence sitters.
Moving away from their standard knob navigation to touch screen navigation, the BlackBerry 6 will have highlights like universal search where you can begin typing in anything and it searches all of your media, contacts and the like (not just contacts).
This newest version of BlackBerry is social media ready and attempts to integrate info from various social networks into one comprehensive stream and allowing you to update all of your designated social networks with one update.
BlackBerry 6 will now have a pinch/zoom feature, an integrated RSS reader, and an enhanced media interface.
The release date has not been set yet, but it is rumored to be quite soon. We polled our readers this spring and 31% of those surveyed currently own a BlackBerry and it continues to be popular in the real estate profession. Will that number grow or will Realtors who continue to threaten to switch to iPhone make good on their word?
