Wikitude today announced they’ve added support for BlackBerry 6 smartphones in their World Browser app. Originally only available for BlackBerry 7 smartphones, the OS 6 version allows users to connect with friends on BBM to locate them and other things on a map based on their location. Here’s a bit from their announcement:
As part of BlackBerry® Dev Con Asia taking place in Singapore this year, Wikitude has announced additional support for smartphones running on the BlackBerry® 6 operating system (OS). With Wikitude being preinstalled on all new smartphones running the BlackBerry 7 OS, bringing Wikitude to smartphones running BlackBerry 6 will help answer considerable demand expressed by users who want to experience Wikitude’s extensive content offering including more than 2,000 content Worlds consisting of approx. 150 million places around the globe. Users of the popular BlackBerry® Bold™ 9700, 9780,9788 and BlackBerry® Torch™ 9800 smartphones can download Wikitude on BlackBerry® App World™ starting today.
Although smartphones running BlackBerry OS 6 do not support the Augmented Reality view, which requires specific hardware features available in BlackBerry 7 based smartphones, the Wikitude app does fully integrate with BBM™ enabling users to find their BBM friends on a map and to communicate with one another based on their location. Users opting to allow their whereabouts to be displayed can even make new friends.
Features of the BlackBerry 6 version include:
- Find cafes, pubs, events, tweets, Wikipedia articles, ATMs, restaurants and much more around you
- Browse more than 150 million places and interactive content
- Explore and identify places, monuments and objects around you
- Search for specific places, for example “thai restaurant”
- Find mobile coupons and discounts for stores and shops near by
