Blackberry smartphones were one of the first to be launched in the market. It’s features specially the Blackberry Messenger had become a rage among the teens and the adults alike. But since the inception of Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android, there has been a sharp decline in the sale of the Blackberry phones.
So RIM, decided to reinvent its Blackberry smartphones to arrest this decline. The new Blackberry smartphones along with a brand new OS will have features which will make it a better competitor to the iPhone and Android. RIM has declared it will launch the Blackberry 10 along with other phones with the new OS on 30th January, 2013.
Some of the features of the Blackberry 10 are:
1. Blackberry Hub
RIM describes the Hub as follows: “All messages, notifications, feeds, and calendar events come into the BlackBerry Hub and no matter what the user is doing with the device, with a simple gesture, they can peek into the Hub at any time. The Blackberry Hub is basically a revamped inbox.
2. Blackberry Flow
RIM describes this as “a seamless user experience which provides full control and flexibility in every moment and every touch. Flow keeps the momentum going so that user goals can be achieved quick and efficiently”. This feature will make sure that the apps work in a more consistent manner.
3. Time Shift
Blackberry 10’s camera app has a cool new feature called Time Shift that captures multiple shots of a given subject, then lets you quickly scroll through them on a radial menu to pick the perfect picture. This is an exciting feature for all users who use the camera a lot.
4. Blackberry 10 Keyboard
“The keyboard suggests words based on predictions, and when the user swipes the words upwards they nicely animate to the text field where they will end up. It’s a nice moment of charm and gives BlackBerry 10 a unique input experience,” according to RIM.
5. Blackberry Balance
This feature allows users to use their BlackBerry 10 device for work and personal use, with the ability to firewall both areas of the device. It also allows for remote management, like wiping company data, if ordered by your IT manager.
