RIM hasn’t really said much about BlackBerry 10, other than the fact that they’ve been working on it, until recently at its BlackBerry World event in Orlando. Want to see some of the new features that will come with BlackBerry 10 (previously called BBX)? Watch the sneak peek video below:
In the video, RIM shows us how the e-mail application and incoming calls will look like on the BlackBerry 10 OS. The video also shows us the unique way in which the BlackBerry 10 keyboard suggests words for auto-complete. Instead of suggested words showing up in a bar on top of the keyboard (like on Android, iOS, and Windows Phone), RIM has the word suggestions show up on the letters themselves which can then be flicked up to be selected.
The BlackBerry 10 platform is being built from the ground up, based on the same QNX framework that we saw on the PlayBook tablet. In other words, don’t expect BB10 to look anything like the BlackBerry 6 or 7 which you’ve seen in the past. In theory, this should turn out to be a good thing as RIM has only seen a steady decline in its sales over the last couple of years.
