Research In Motion today provided updates to a handful of its mobile applications in conjunction with the release of BlackBerry OS 7.1. BlackBerry Messenger version 6.1 has moved out of beta and is available to all users. BBM 6.1 adds support for BlackBerry Tag, which lets BlackBerry users exchange contact data by tapping their near-field communications-equipped BlackBerries together. It also adds more control over customization of individual messages and user profiles. The BlackBerry Travel application has been updated to include support for local deals on transportation and hotel accommodations, and an automatic trip scanning feature can pull user trip details into the app. Last, RIM updated BlackBerry Traffic to include turn-by-turn voice guidance. These app updates are available in BlackBerry App World.
