Smartphone lovers, rejoice. The newest version of the operating system, BlackBerry 10, is now launched, and it’s a doozy.
BlackBerry 10 marks a momentous change from past versions – a wide range of apps (more than 70,000), a killer web browser and top speed – while retaining everything we love about it (most namely, the physical keyboard in the Q10 model). It’s fast, sleek and has some cool new features you’re going to love.
Here are the Top 5 new features of BlackBerry 10:
This is your control centre, the one, central spot where you can instantly view new messages, texts, social media updates, BBM messages, voicemail – you name it. Simply swipe the screen to see what’s new.
BlackBerry has the best keyboard, hands down. But now you can also use the touchscreen keyboard (on the new Z10 model), which learns how you type and cleverly adjusts to make typing even faster. Physical and virtual, why not have both?
Time Shift Camera:
You set up the perfect shot and snap a photo, but in that split second, someone’s eyes are closed, or you were too soon on the action. Time Shift captures things just before and just after you’ve taken the photo. Scroll to pick the best shot.
BBM Video with Screen Share:
Similar to BBM voice, but now video. Video chat, for free, with any BBM user anywhere in the world. The accompanying Screen Share app lets you share your screen with whomever you’re chatting with, so they can see whatever video, image, file or website you’re talking about.
While many people use BB because of its business-related qualities – including its security features – Balance lets you efficiently organize your personal and professional apps, contacts and other data into two separate spots.
