Everything You Need to Know About BlackBerry 10
Tomorrow, BlackBerry® is set to introduce its highly anticipated BlackBerry 10 device.
Below, we shed some light on just a few of the exciting new features that have been causing quite a stir among mobile tech enthusiasts – and for very good reason. The all-new BlackBerry 10 promises a leading-edge interface, blazing-fast web browsing and stronger developer support – which, according to RIM, means more apps of much better quality. Staying true to their core audience, as well as appealing to the expectations of a new generation of smartphone users, here are just a few of the innovative new features promised with the launch of the BlackBerry 10:
BlackBerry Flow – The word being used to define the new BlackBerry 10 operating system is BlackBerry flow. This intuitive new user interface promises a faster, smarter, and smoother experience that works the way you want it to and constantly adapts to your actions. With features and apps working together seamlessly, BlackBerry flow allows every action to intuitively flow into the next.
BlackBerry® Hub – At its core, BlackBerry Hub is a unified inbox that aggregates all of your messages in one central location. What’s different (and exciting) about BlackBerry Hub is the ability to “peek” in an out of your email messages, work files, conversations, etc. without interrupting your work flow or exiting your current application. A blinking red light provides a notification that there is activity in the Hub, and you can decide to respond right away or simply let the screen snap back and continue with the task at hand.
The BlackBerry® Keyboard – Adhering to the expectations of BlackBerry users who have come to rely on its tactile keyboard experience, RIM has reinvented the touchscreen-typing experience with its new keyboard. Not only does it help you type faster and more accurately by learning your writing style over time, but it learns your personal linguistic style as well. It intuitively predicts what you’re going to say next – and suggests it – before you’ve even finished typing. So whether you’re plugging away on an important work document or simply responding to a friend on BlackBerry Messenger, the keyboard promises to give you the typing experience you’ve come to expect from BlackBerry.
BlackBerry® Balance™ – Gone are the days of a “work phone” and a “personal phone”. Understanding the needs of the busy executive or business owner, BlackBerry Balance maintains two distinct user profiles. This allows you to keep your business data and content separate from your personal, giving you the ability to switch seamlessly with one simple gesture. It also means that, should you change companies, the “work side” of your BlackBerry can be wiped clean by the IT department without the loss of data, applications or information from your “personal side”.
A Browser Built for Speed – One of the biggest steps forward for the BlackBerry experience is its powerful and responsive new web browser. With pages that load faster and the native integration of your favourite social network sharing tools, the BlackBerry 10 delivers a more complete web experience with ease and simplicity.
LTE Connectivity – As the new gold standard in wireless network technology, there’s very little surprise that RIM has built the new BlackBerry 10 to run on the nation’s rapidly expanding LTE network. What this means for you is faster browsing and faster streaming, all on the go.
