Montreal residents who use the city's Metro service will be happy to hear that the STM (Societe de transport de Montreal) is finalizing a deal with Extenet that will result in cellular coverage within the subway system. The coverage would be available in 68 Metro stations throughout the city, and will be rolled out in stages.

Rogers is pushing out software updates to BlackBerry Curve 9300 and Bold 9700 owners that will enabled UMA (previously known as TalkSpot) functionality, enabling voice calls over Wi-Fi. While the use of the service does require a UMA specific plan, this is a great option for anybody looking to use their BlackBerry devices as both cellular and home phones. Many users will have already received the update notification, and those who haven't should be getting it very soon. Beware, the update takes about an hour, so doing it OTA (over-the-air) will mean a lack of service for that amount of time.

The moment BlackBerry and gadget fans everywhere have been anticipating for the last few weeks finally came yesterday afternoon, when Research In Motion announced the BlackBerry PlayBook! The PlayBook, which is RIM's contribution to the tablet market, features an array of top-end specifications, and the OS is developed, as rumoured, by QNX.

Let's start with the hardware - a 7" ( 1024 x 600) LCD multi-touch capacitive LCD display/touchscreen, a 5MP rear camera and 3MP front-facing camera, both capable of capturing high definition. Powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM, the PlayBook comes equipped with micro USB and micro HDMI ports, and connects to cellular data networks via bluetooth tethering with a BlackBerry smartphone. It also features Wi-Fi (a, b, g, n) connectivity, and comes in at just 10mm thick.

Now on to the operating system and software, it looks like the PlayBook is going to fill in the gaps that Apple's IPad currently has, including FULL Adobe Flash 10.1 support! It also supports HTML 5, an on-screen keyboard, and "true multi-tasking". Video conferencing is made available via the front facing camera, and the device can access your BBM, e-mail, calendar, etc., by pairing with your BlackBerry smartphone.

There have been a number of rumours surfacing online regarding RIM developing a tablet device, including everything from screen size (7", 8.9"), to piggy backing for cellular data connectivity. According to the latest rumour, Research In Motion will unveil the new device next week at DevCon 2010 in the U.S., announcing features, specifications, and hopefully a release date. So far, the general consensus seems to be that the device will have a 7" touch screen, along with bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, though it will rely on the user's BlackBerry device for cellular data use. Names that have been tossed around for the rumoured device include "BlackPad" and "SurfBook", but pre-release model names often change upon launch, as should be the case with this one.

Probably the most discussed rumour is that the device won't be running an existing BlackBerry OS, but rather something entirely new and developed with help from QNX, a major OS maker that has experience in everything from vehicle software, to Nuclear Reactors. If RIM does launch a tablet powered by QNX software, we can be assured that it will not-only be stable and reliable, but more than likely a smooth and consistent experience as well.

Do you think RIM will announce their tablet next week? We'll be keeping up with live coverage, so stayed tuned for more details next week!

The Virgin Mobile Live application for BlackBerry officially launched today, providing BlackBerry users with the ability to sync music from their PC, as well as purchase and download content such as DRM-free music, ringtones, and wallpapers. Full music tracks start at $0.69 each, while ringtones cost $3.95 and wallpapers range from $2.00 - $2.50. The application will also provide users with extras such as artist biographies and lyrics for all tracks, and even embedded Twitter functionality so users can share what they're listening to directly from the application.

As of now, the application is free to download and browse through, but will use cellular data, so customers must have a supported data package to avoid overage charges. The application is officially available for the BlackBerry 9700 right now, and should be available for other BlackBerry devices in the near future.
