BlackBerry 6 running on BlackBerry 9800 video shows off its media capabilities

BlackBerry 6 Media Capabilities
By Bla1ze on 18 Jul 2010 10:54 pm EDT

Let's face it, BlackBerry media capabilities in the past have been rather relaxed. Sure, we seen some improvements from OS 4.5 to 5.0 but, nothing drastic by any means. The most promising thing added in my opinion was DivX video playback support. Now that BlackBerry 6 is upon us, we once again see that Research In Motion is extending upon those functionalities for the better. Salomondrin, got his hands on rather nice video walkthrough of those changes running on a BlackBerry 9800. "Terrible Bean" does the walk through for us all. Video after the break folks, looks pretty nice although --I'd have rolled with some better music selections but, that's just me. I overlooked the music based on the fact I got to see the Muppets. ;)

BlackBerry 6 running on BlackBerry 9800 video shows off its media capabilities


I know the video was intended to highlite it's media savvy, however I would liked to have seen a few other area's showcased.

I really have no complaints with my bb but it would be nice to not have to use a 3rd party app to delete the sample stuff so I hope the same thing

Wow dude with this berry has the gayest music, NSYNC and Enrique ?? Happy that OS 6 will be good on the 9700, but seeing more vids of the 9800 i'm wishing i waited longer on my hardware upgrade! oh well i'll find ways to get my hands on this, because i'm a crackberry addict :-)

i cant believe the music selection on there. if i had no idea about the owner...id say he was either gay or an older mother of 3 kids.

there was not one thing right about the albums i saw or the songs i heard.

and we all know if that was Sal's phone...he would have played Jay-Z...as he always does on the phones "he" gets ;)

6 sucks out dated big time ! !
rim just keeps showing us media
stuff and music and pictures.
What about the brower ???
nothing on that EVER ?

I think it all seemed great. I thought the coverflow was fairly good. I hope this does come to vZW.

I def agree with other comments... that's just awful media to demo. lmao.

Looks pretty cool. I hate the 4.6 media player on my 9000.

I think Coverflow is the first thing serious Mac users turn off. I don't have album art for most of my music, so coverflow would be really annoying and I find the current music player to be pretty good. My only complaint is that I cannot read the tiny lettering for Album, Song and Artist.
