If you’ve been reading up on the BlackBerry® Bold™ 9900 and BlackBerry® Bold™ 9930 smartphones, then you’ll know they feature a built-in compass (magnetometer) designed to support location-based services and augmented reality. With BlackBerry® 7, new APIs will allow you to take advantage of this new functionality within your applications.

At the BlackBerry World™ conference, we featured a new application created by Mobilizy: Wikitude. The above Wikitude demo video showcases the power of BlackBerry 7 and the exciting opportunity augmented reality can bring to your apps. You can learn more and get started with BlackBerry 7 today.
