With all the tumult of Blackberry 6 coming loaded on the new Blackberry 9800, and that the 9650 is able to run Blackberry 6, or whether the Bold 9700 and Storm 2 will be able to run it, and all the cool new features Blackberry 6 will have, people seemed to have missed a cool little feature. Whew that was a long sentence!
When news of Blackberry 6 was barely coming out I saw a post somewhere that talked about the calendar icon. It was thought that the number inside of the icon changed according to the actual date. But the notion was pushed aside because of the infancy of the OS.
Now that the leaks are appearing left and right with videos, screenshots, and pictures of the devices running Blackberry 6 the little calendar icon seems to have been forgotten, but not by this Blackberry addict! I started to investigate this notion and found out something quite interesting.
In the pics above there is a screenshot that is posted at the Blackberry blog and a pic from Driphter.com that show different numbers inside the calendar icon which correspond with the actual days date! This is a small yet cool feature that RIM has implemented in Blackberry 6. Ah! But you might say those are just pics that doesn’t prove anything! Well I have spoken to someone that has a 9800 running Blackberry 6 and they confirmed that the calendar icon does update with the day’s date.
So there you have it another cool feature in Blackberry 6 that some may have overlooked. Let me know what you think of this feature in the comments and about me posting something other than themes. Should I keep my mouth shut and just keep my day theme job?
So with all the news about the unveiling of the 9800 and Blackberry 6 I was sure I was going to see someone mention the calendar icon that updates aaaaaaand yes finally! While I was watching Kevin from crackberry.com’s overview of the 9800 he mentioned the calendar icon that had the day’s date! How awesome is that! Check out the video —>
