BBerry 9000 Docs Leak
Media handling outside of the browser is also improved, RIM notes. The jukebox software will now have the ability to pick play "automatic playlists" similar to the smart playlists in iTunes and the iPod; listeners will have the option of choosing playlists that auto-populate based on certain criteria. Camera functions will let users view sub-folders and hop from the video camera to the still photo mode.
Other changes include better language support and better Wi-Fi tools.
The news also suggests that Research in Motion is fast-tracking the launch of the BlackBerry 9000 for July after initially estimating that technical difficulties would delay the phone to August. Power issues with the smartphone are allegedly being resolved while the software as a whole has also progressed. An exact release date isn't specified but is believed to already exist but isn't available.
