For those who don’t know, HTML5 is the latest version of HTML, the language that acts as the digital skeleton of most web pages. Probably the coolest thing about HTML5 is that it does more than just power web pages — it also powers web apps. These apps can work both online and offline to provide an experience much like a native app, meaning mobile browsers will have to be equipped to handle HTML5 quickly and smoothly.
This is where the BlackBerry 10 browser fits in nicely. The BlackBerry 10 browser itself is an HTML5 application, working as a gateway that serves up pages written in nearly any programming language, including HTML5. But that’s only half of the story. The BlackBerry 10 browser is also an extremely revved-up result of the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet browser (which may just have the best HTML5 score for a tablet browser in the industry). This is the browser available in new BlackBerry 10 smartphones. This allows for not only compatibility of pages designed now and in the future, but also a faster browsing experience.

Check out the new features included in BBM 7.0.1
BBM 7.0.1 now supports BlackBerry 5.0 Devices
BBM Voice – For the times when you want to hear a friend’s laughter instead of reading their LOL’s, BBM now comes with BBM Voice. Now you have the freedom to switch almost any BBM conversation from text to a call and speak to your BBM contacts, from almost anywhere they are in the world for free over WiFi. You’ll instantly know whenever BBM friends are available to call. Alternatively, if the moment isn’t right to speak with a friend who’s calling, simply choose to respond discretely by text.
- Visual Indicator – Know instantly when BBM friends are available to voice call – no guesswork needed. Leaving you to decide how and when to connect with all your BBM friends.
- Multitasking with BBM Voice – Do more while you chat – with BBM Voice you are free to respond to BBM text chats, check emails or navigate to other apps while still on a BBM Voice call.
- Accessory compatible – Choose how you chat with BBM Voice – BBM Voice is compatible with your accessories. Use the handset, the speakerphone, Bluetooth accessory or a wired headset – and easily switch between them via the onscreen menu item in the active chat screen.
BBID Synchronization – Users can now switch even more easily between BlackBerry smartphones since BBM 7 allows your BBM profile, Groups and Contacts to be linked to your BBID. Integration with BBID will also allow users to seamlessly transfer all of their BBM information to a BlackBerry 10 device.
