What You Might Have Missed
Got BlackBerry OS 7? Wikitude Augmented Reality Browser is waiting to be downloaded
One of the most anticipated applications for the new BlackBerry OS 7 phones has to be the Wikitude Augmented Reality Browser. If you're not familiar, the augmented reality application displays the image from your smartphone's camera. Layered on top of this image are clickable links to information about the places around you. In past demonstrations, we've seen banks, hotels, shops, and even BlackBerry Messenger Contacts pop up on the screen. All in all, the Wikitude Augmented Reality Browser appears to be a highly useful (and entertaining) app.
If you've got an OS 7 device (lucky!), then you'll want to grab this app quickly. It's available today, right now, in BlackBerry App World. Please note that this BlackBerry App World link will only work from a BlackBerry OS7 device.
