New BBM Commercial BBM Flirt (0:60)

RIM pushed BlackBerry Messenger hard in 2010 and it's looking like the trend is going to continue in 2011 and I'm glad to see that be the case. Afterall, BBM does rock and after years of almost no-advertising from RIM, it'll take a while still before I get bored of seeing them pump out commercials.
This time around it's all about the BlackBerry Flirt (Flirt almost sounds like a name RIM would give to a phone... perhaps a good followup to the BlackBerry Style?). You can catch the 60 second version above and the shorter 30 second version below. It's pretty edgy for conservative 'ole RIM. Good to see. But after watching this commercial instead of thinking about getting girls' PINs all I can really think about is getting my hands on a BlackBerry Bold Touch rocking BlackBerry 6.1 and BlackBerry Messenger 6. Yowza!

Few things that alot of people talk about if you own a BlackBerry or not doesnt matter!!!
OTA or "over the air"
a link that can be accessed from your mobile device's browser. Your file will download directly to your device "Over The Air"

This is your Blackberry's operating system. The tour released with version 4.7 and now can be updated to 5.0. The version of your OS can effect the type of theme you can install.

Today or "hidden today"
A feature in the theme that lists either calendar items or unread messages when you scroll over corresponding icons.
Today is a type of default layout that shows messages and calendar icons along with the "today" lists, separate from the standard icons.

QuickLaunch is a great paid ($4.99) app that launches a menu on your homescreen that has a list of shortcuts to various apps, and links for easy access. Most of my themes launch this app (if you have QL installed) when you hit the spacebar on your keypad.

Wallpaper Friendly
This just means the theme allows full or nearly full visibility of your background image, or wallpaper.
