Thank you RIM! This BlackBerry 6.1 screen capture above shows off a new feature in the upcoming OS update that so many of us BlackBerry 6 users, including myself, have been longing for... the ability to manage homescreen panes.
In the default BlackBerry homescreen experience the All, Favorites, Media, Downloads, and Frequent panes are always present, which on a device like the BlackBerry Bold 9780 (that is fast and lacks a touchscreen) can make for a lot of accidental scrolling between panes. With BlackBerry 6.1, the new Manage Panes option will make that annoyance a thing of the past as you will be able to choose which panes to show on the homescreen. Great news. Now we just need to see this baby get released!
