Speed testing apps are a common sight on all devices that connect wirelessly to the internet. Until this week; however, the BlackBerry PlayBook was one of the only devices out there that didn’t have a speed testing application. That has all changed with the release of Speedtest HD from Xtreme Labs. Speedtest HD works just like you would expect an app of this type to. It tests the latency, upload speed, and download speed of your PlayBook’s wireless connection. The app keeps track of your historical speed data as well as the location and type of network you’re using. Speedtest HD is a free download from App World and is also ranked 19th in the “Top Free” category for PlayBook apps.

RIM has let us know via a post on the Inside BlackBerry Developer Blog that WiFi Geolocation has been officially launched. The API’s for this service have been available since the launch of BlackBerry OS 6 and RIM has finally gotten the technology required on their end up and running. If developers already have the API’s for this built into their apps then the service will begin automatically. If not, there are some simple additions that can be added to implement the service.
For those that don’t know, WiFi Geolocation uses the location of the WiFi access point to determine location. This is much faster than GPS location but is slightly less accurate. This service is slower than cell-site location but is much more accurate. BlackBerry users will see better battery life and location service with the GPS function of their device off when using apps that have WiFi Geolocation built-in. Developers can check out the two links below for everything you need to know about WiFi Geolocation in your applications.

A report came in this afternoon from BGR which claimed that RIM is planning to discontinue the BlackBerry PlayBook WIFi only version and shift focus to the 3G/4G enabled PlayBook and QNX smartphones. We didn’t post on this rumor because we believed it to be false and now RIM has even stepped in to call this rumor out. RIM posted on the BlackBerry Twitter account that the article and rumor are “Pure Fiction” and that the WiFi PlayBook is “launching in new countries practically every week.” I, for one, love my PlayBook and believe that the WiFi-only version is a true competitor in the tablet arena. It seems that RIM feels that way too.

It looks as if the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 will be debuting sometime in the near future. The Bold 9900 has just received it’s WiFi certification and revealed a little more about itself to us. We now know that the new Bold Touch will just go by the name “Bold 9900.” This signals that RIM does not plan to differentiate the non-touchscreen devices from the touchscreen devices. This most likely means that all new BlackBerry models will feature a touchscreen for navigation. The Bold 9900 is certified for WIFI a,b,g, and n, and runs on dual-bands 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz. Things are looking good for the 9900 to get announced next week at BlackBerry World 2011. Who’s excited?
If your a proud owner of a WiFi enabled BlackBerry smartphone than you can understand the frustration that is linked to your WiFi and your battery life. The issue is that when you have your Wifi on it kills your battery, and turning on and off your wifi when u aren’t using it can be a pain. So this is were AutoWifi comes into place, AutoWifi automatically turns your WiFi on and off depending on your location, it does so by using cell towers and not GPS thus saving your battery life. Now the best part is that these types of apps are usually $4.99 and up, but today is your lucky day, you can now pick up AutoWifi from theberryfix.com superstore for FREE just grab the links below.
Word is circulating that many BlackBerry users that rely on WiFi for their BIS or BES connections are experiencing outages; the outage has been going since late yesterday evening. RIM has yet to comment on the situation, but hopefully there will be a resolution soon. Are you experiencing any outage? let us know.
For any readers out there that are afraid that WIFI and cellular signals are turning their brains to mush then look away. RCA has brought there new gadget to CES this year, but before I tell you what it is let me set the stage. You are sitting at star bucks using your brand new BlackBerry Bold and your radio shuts off because your battery has died, what do you do? well you harvest the power of the hotspot WiFi signal…..if RCA has it their way you can. RCA is demonstrationg a new gadget that you can use to charge your BlackBerry with the WifI signal and they call it the Airnergy Charger, what this allows you to do is harvest the energy of WiFi signals. Just thinking about this is mind boggling, theres that much power in a wifi signal? but hey if my BlackBerry is dead and the only way to charge it is this way then sign me up. The Airnery Charger will be available later this summer for about 40$. So who is up fo some free power?
