A quick look at the new BlackBerry Protect options coming with BlackBerry 7

By Bla1ze on 29 May 2011 01:17 pm EDT

As you may or may not have noticed from some of the leaked device videos of recent, BlackBerry Protect is getting an upgrade in BlackBerry 7, all while becoming deeply integrated into the BlackBerry OS. The above video shows us some of the new options that will be available when the new version rolls out.

That's not to say anyone who isn't on BlackBerry 7 won't get the new features. Essentially, RIM could roll this out to every compatible BlackBerry device tomorrow if they wanted as an update to the already existing standalone BlackBerry Protect application but having it built-in on newer devices just makes sense. Thanks, @rr_yy!

BeST music choice ever :)


I don't see any difference from the version of BB Protect that can be downloaded now from BB App World.


Aside from being baked into the OS, you now have two additional back up options. Password keeper database, and WiFi profiles.


Music is great!
But even greater is this share of rroyy! Thanks!
Many questions in my head!! :) I won't be asking them though:)


Wish they would turn the icon back to black......not looking forward to the urine soaked icon that will come with OS7


I knowwwww it's so ugly!!!


I don't see any new features except for the above mentioned yellow icon.


Looking goo so far. What is the name of the song & who is it by ? ? ?


Brad sucks - Making me nervous


Looks like there was the option to back up music and the password keeper, I know I'd be screwed if I lost my password keeper data! I have to agree about the icon, it's ugly. So why doesn't RIM just update the program for the rest of us right now?


whats the name of that song?


Love the idea of self backing up. I remember to back mine up only when I misplace my phone.
If I ever lost it, and didn't back it up for a period of 6 months or more, it's game over for me.

DISCLAIMER: I use my phone for business, and a lot of material on it is VERY sensitive.


Looks like someone has been playing with the 9900 simulator:)


And the new features are...?


Couple of updates from the current blackberry protect niceeee


Nice,my brother just lost his phone,too bad he didn't have any tracking app on it
