Now, a BlackBerry Boy!


The current number of 20,000-odd app stores by RIM may get a huge boost, as it has acquired Montreal-based software company, Tungle. A little bio of the company, for you’ll hear about it more often now. Tungle is a quiet well-known app developing company; whose apps are believe to come to the rescue of those who dread scheduling meetings and other business gatherings. Tungle aids scheduling and synchronizing meetings over smartphones, computer, and tablets.

With the services of Tungle getting fully integrated with that of RIM, it might soon be counted among the larger scheme of app things. RIM had earlier tied up with an Indian-owned Polar mobile to develop apps for its newly launched PlayBook tablet. Since then, RIM has seen a surge of about 180 apps that had been developed by Polar Mobile for its users.

The next week, RIM will again be in news with its annual BlackBerry World Conference in Orlando, Florida wherein, it might in all likelihood unveil its latest operating system, as also some smartphones.
