BlackBerry Blend appears in "My World" section of BlackBerry World

BlackBerry Blend appears in
BlackBerry Blend is expected to be available once the BlackBerry Passport launches. That is expected to be sometime before the end of this month. The feature, which we've written about quite often, allows you to view much of the content from your 'Berry handset, on a larger screen like a tablet or browser. While some tablets might work with Blend, the BlackBerry PlayBook is not expected to be one of them.

BlackBerry sees Blend as being an indispensable tool in the enterprise. Imagine using your BlackBerry Passport to gather information while out of the office, and the using Blend to access it on the desktop PC in the office. And if your company is using BES10, Blend can be used to access your firm's intranet.

Right now, BlackBerry Blend is showing up in the "My World" section of BlackBerry World. Clicking on it results in an error message for now, so don't get terribly excited yet.

This is going to be a good app, once enabled. Reminiscent of BlackBerry Bridge, which worked great with the PlayBook, only this app goes further, adding pairing with tablets and laptops/desktops from other OS's.

BB should be more of a software company (where i think they have a lot of potential) rather than diverting its depleting resources to hardware. They're still unhacked, right?

Yes. To date, BB10 has yet to be hacked. As for your beginning statement, BlackBerry has indeed been transitioning to a software and services company so they can in fact be less reliant on hardware. Because of this, they don't need to sell nearly as many smartphones as other OEM's do. With the way John Chen has been doing focused launches of BlackBerry handsets in what little strongholds BlackBerry has remaining, plus the Foxconn deal, BlackBerry has been managing their handset division quite well as of late. I do agree with you, though. BlackBerry's software and services is what will carry them.forward, not handsets.
