Research in Motion Ltd. (BBRY) Upgrades Travel App for BB10 OS

Research in Motion Ltd. (NASDAQ:BBRY) – also known as BlackBerry Ltd. – is at the eve of its big Z10 handset and BlackBerry 10 operating system launch in the United States. And as the company is announcing the addition of 30,000 apps into its store in the last seven weeks (to move the store to more than 100,000 apps), it is releasing a major upgrade  to its BlackBerry Travel app designed for the BB10 OS.

And by initial reports, this is not just an upgrade – this could be an entirely new app – rebuilt, if you will.

BlackBerry Ltd (BBRY)

The new BlackBerry Travel app by Research in Motion Ltd. (NASDAQ:BBRY) takes the prior app to a whole new level, allowing users to plan travel, book flights and hotels, manage the itinerary and share the information with friends, all from the app. one of the first big features is trip sharing, where users can prepare an itinerary and share details with friends on Facebook, BlackBerry Messenger, Twitter or LinkedIn. (No, it’s not available for Google+ just yet.)

There is also flight status sharing, which can provide updates about flight delays or notifying friends about a flight arriving late, at a different gate or a different terminal than originally planned. There is also a “price alert” feature, where users can be alerted when a hotel room is available fore a cheaper price than what is already booked, or if there are better rates for similar hotels in the area and the user would have a chance to cancel the orginal reservation and re-book from within the application.

What are your thoughts about this new Travel app by Research in Motion Ltd. (NASDAQ:BBRY)? Does a quality travel mobile app entice you to check out BlackBerry 10 when it launches Friday? Give us your thoughts in the comments section below.
