The good folks over at BlackBerryNews noticed today that RIM had added a Knowledge Base article outlining a new diagnostic tool that has been implemented into our beloved devices. So what does it do you ask?

Well, it allows you test how well your hardware is working... by going to the Options icon and choosing Status then typing the word "Test", you will be presented with a window telling you how to begin and allowing you to select what options to test out. The options include:

  • Keyboard And TrackBall
  • Misc
  • Handset Audio
  • Headset Audio
  • Bluetooth Audio
  • RF Components
  • GPS 
Overall a cool tool to test out if your BlackBerry is functioning up to par. Check out the video after the jump...people were curious how the "vibrate" test would work with a device simulator... it has some funny results ;)
