RIM has just announced that the BlackBerry OS 7.1 update is now available to BlackBerry Bold 9900 users in the Philippines which just started yesterday.
The BlackBerry 7.1 OS incorporates a new feature called BlackBerry Tag that can change the way BlackBerry users share information and content. By simply tapping their NFC enabled BlackBerry Bold 9900 smartphone against another NFC enabled BlackBerry smartphone, users can make sharing easier than ever. They can instantly invite a friend to BBM (BlackBerry Messenger), exchange contact information, documents, URLs, photos, apps and other multimedia content, and they can also pair their BlackBerry smartphone with an NFC enabled Bluetooth device.
BlackBerry 7.1 OS also now has the WiFi hotspot feature that allows connection of up to 5 wireless devices. We’re not sure how this will affect Globe’s BB Max 599 plan which comes with unlimited data that you cna now share with other devices like tablets and laptops.
The new BlackBerry 7.1 OS is now available for BlackBerry Bold 9900 users to download. Visit ph.blackberry.com/update, or use the BlackBerry Desktop Manager software when updating your handsets.
