DLNA Spotted in Latest BlackBerry OS 7.1 Leaks

Yesterday, BlackBerry fans got a whole bunch of new ROMs to test out, with leaked versions of OS 7.1.0.267 surfacing for a number of handsets. In the past, we’ve gotten out first look at new BlackBerry OS features through similar leaks, as we did with the introduction of wireless hotspot mode and, more recently, with new power-saving settings. Now, OS 7.1.0.267 is beginning to share its own secrets, revealing the addition of DLNA-compliant media streaming.

So far, media streaming has been confirmed when using the latest leaked OS on the 9900 and 9810, but it’s likely that support is in store for many more models. Once you set up your media streaming preferences, your BlackBerry smartphone should now be visible as a media source from other devices supporting DLNA. Since this is DLNA we’re talking about, after all, that setup process looks to be relatively painless, and once you choose which file types you’d like to share, you’re ready to start accessing BlackBerry-stored media on your big HDTV.

Check out the video below for a quick look at the Bold 9900 connected to a PlayStation 3 over DLNA.
