Developers at BlackBerry World 2012 got the full lowdown on the features of BlackBerry 10, as CNET reports. We expect this new Blackberry OS to roll into the market in the later part of this year. I looked at those festures myself and I felt Blackberry users should have gotten these features some 3-4 years before now considering how Blackberry was ahead at the beginning of the race in the Smartphone market.
As at July 2008, iPhone had no Copy & Paste feature, no native video recording and no camera flash, no voice dialling, no MMS and some other features like that but look at where iphone is today and look at Blackberry lagging behind.
According to VentureBeat, the new tiled look of BlackBerry 10 appears to be some sort of hybrid between iOS, Windows Phone 7 and Android 4.0. Big graphics are the order of the day, doing away with the small icons of BlackBerry 7. There are four widgets featured on the Home screen.
Reports also have it that you no longer need to return to the Home screen in order to open up a new application. Instead, you can easily swipe to the left or the right to move between applications.
RIM is also repotedly departing from the strictly physical keyboard and will test the market with touch screen devices which should hit the market this year. Eweek reports that touch screen models will be arriving this year.
According to Yahoo News, some of the most interesting features of BlackBerry 10 are related to the device’s camera. When taking a photo, you can step forward or backwards in time by a moment or two from when you take the photo. That way, you’ll never have that person blinking and spoiling the photo again. RIM also demonstrated how you can click anywhere on the screen to take a photo.
BlackBerry 10 will also have a video editor, screen sharing according to CrackBerry forum leak.
The new user interface in BlackBerry 10 introduces gesture controls, like swiping up or down to accept or reject an incoming call. CNET also reports that BlackBerry 10 will adjust to individual users over time; the device will pay attention to where your fingers hit the on-screen keyboard, and adapt to make your typing more accurate. More details on the new user interface are yet to come.
Do you think this move can save the (as far as I’m concerned) dying Blackberry? They really slowed down and allowed the iOS and Android to catch up and leave them behind.
