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.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GE63 Raider

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
