During BlackBerry World's keynote demo sessions, RIM showed off the new Wikitude for BlackBerry app that will come preloaded on the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 and make use of the device's built-in Digital Compass. The Wikitude app is referred to as Augumented Reality Browser... but what does that mean? Probably the best thing to do is check out the video above to see it in action or Wikitude's blog post on the announcement for me details, but esssentially you can open the camera view within the app and see the world around you with points of interest layered on top. With over 150 milllion geo-referenced places already tagged around the world, Bold Touch owners are going to have a lot of fun with this one.
We hear an even better demo video is coming soon of the Wikitude app in action, so stay tuned and we'll post that up as soon as it hits the youtubes.
