Wikitude browser comes preloaded on the Blackberry Bold 9900

What is the Wikitude Augmented Reality Browser?

From wikitude.org: Wikitude World Browser, which overlays information on what the user sees through the smartphone’s camera viewfinder.

As well as providing more than 150 million geo-referenced places aggregated from over 1,000 different content providers like Wikipedia, Twitter and YouTube, Wikitude will also fully integrate the BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) allowing users to interact with their BBM contacts and meet new people in augmented reality. “Combining Wikitude with the overwhelmingly large user base of BBM around the world creates a completely new form of social interaction. This is the very first time that instant messaging is rolled out in AR on such a large scale” says Andy Gstoll, Chief Marketing Officer at Wikitude.

Sounds like a neat idea. Since it comes preloaded on the phone, all you have to do is turn on the browser and start pointing.
