With BlackBerry World just around the corner, we're starting to get revved up for what is to be the BIGGEST BlackBerry event of the year. Hopefully we'll see some cool news announcements next week and get our hands on some new BlackBerry Smartphone hardware. The other thing that's always nice to see are FREEBIES. I've got my fingers crossed that RIM will up and decide to give all attendees a free PlayBook (I know... I'm probably dreaming, but seriously, I need another one to mount in my car) but if that doesn't happen you still have another chance to get a free BlackBerry PlayBook if you're at the show.
A number of BlackBerry World sponsors are running a passport program/contest to win a 16GB PlayBook during the conference. The idea behind the passport program is that attendees walking the show floor collect stamps at each sponsor's booth. Once all the stamps have been collected, the person is entered into a draw to win a prize - in this case a 16GB PlayBook. Below are the list of participating companies and their respective booth numbers:
Actsoft - 353
bitHeads - 304
DragonRAD - 337
IGLOO Software - 321
Mobile Iron - 118
Tec-Garde - 303
So that's it. If you're at BlackBerry World in Orlando next week, be sure to grab your PlayBook Passport and collect your stamps and get entered to win a free PlayBook! See ya there!
*Update: That's it! We've hit 25 - we'll be in touch with the winners shortly so hang tight!! * If you're been thinking about attending BlackBerry World in Orlando next month but weren't quite sure, hopefully we can help you make up your mind. We have 25 half-price passes up for grabs for those of you looking to get in on the action. You'll save 50% off the regular admission price of...

One of the things I noticed after updating my PlayBook today was that I was notified of some available updates for apps I had purchased. Previously on the PlayBook you had to open up BlackBerry App World and navigate to My World to view any available updates. Now it seems the updates are popping up without ever entering App World which is very cool indeed. Tap on the notification...
