The Twitter for BlackBerry smartphones app will launch "in the next few weeks."

BlackBerry Twitter users rejoice! The official BlackBerry Twitter app will finally be released on BlackBerry App World in the coming weeks.

Speaking to GoodGearGuide at a one-on-one briefing on the BlackBerry Storm2, RIM's Senior Carrier Relationship Manager, Michael Momsen, said the Twitter for BlackBerry smartphones app will launch "in the next few weeks."

One of the most anticipated features of the app is push notifications for direct messages. These will tie into the current BlackBerry notifications on the home screen.

We weren't able to get hands-on time with the pre-release version, but we can tell you that the interface looks slick and user friendly, and it ran relatively smoothly.

The Twitter for BlackBerry smartphones app will work on all BlackBerrys running OS 4.5 or later, including the newly released BlackBerry Storm2 smartphone.

If you want to know as soon as the app is available, you can register your details at BlackBerry's official Twitter app page.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
