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.

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.

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.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
