    I just received the RIM press release and am already downloading the Themem Studio, RIM have released OpenGL support, a GUI SDK and a Theme Builder today as part of the BlackBerry Developer's conference. Not sure how many programming types there are on CB, but for many the Theme Studio, a free theme building tool will be cool to toy around with.

    Links to download the new tools are here:

    OpenGL Support: BlackBerry - Java Development Environment (BlackBerry JDE) v5.0 Beta

    GUI Builder - not available yet but on preview for those of you lucky enough to be a the developers conference

    Theme Studio: BlackBerry - BlackBerry Themes & Animated Graphics

    Full releases are here: BlackBerry - Press Releases

    So what does this mean?
    A better, more user-friendly OS in the near future?
    Will this make it easier to built apps (like on the iPhone)?
    Better themes?

    This is extremely promising based what what was on the blog page. It appears RIM is about to take over completely if all goes well or so I hope.

    I guess now my biggest question is where is the official 5.0 OS for the Tour?

    I let the new studio replace plasmic when it upgraded, figured I could always backtrack if I had to. Needless to say, all of your existing work can apparently be transferred to the new version via screen prompt giving you an option to do it or not.

    Operation wise it is very similar but the amount of changes you can now make to a theme are tenfold better than plazmic ever thought of doing.

    All in all, nicely done RIM.
