If you had to pick one OS that has notoriously refused to make any significant changes to its interface and features you’d incontrovertibly point your finger at BlackBerry. So the launch of the brand new BlackBerry 10 OS – a much needed revision of the technologically stagnant smartphone operating system – couldn’t have come at a more opportune moment in time.
Here are five of the most exciting BlackBerry 10 features that will surely make consumers world over reconsider BlackBerry as their choice of smartphone.
While BlackBerry’s much loved BBM service along with social networking applications like Facebook, Twitter are popular favorites on a BlackBerry handset, any power user knows how cumbersome it can be to keep track of so many accounts.
The new virtual keyboard on BlackBerry 10 touch devices is probably the best one any mobile OS has come up with so far. The most outstanding feature of the BlackBerry keyboard is its ability to make uncannily accurate predictions of what words you’d want to type next.
The web browser on BlackBerry 10 is extremely intuitive and efficient in delivering a superior browsing experience. To offer users a customizable browsing interface BlackBerry takes into account every user’s previous searches and URLs of websites the user has visited and consequently has a superb rate of predicting the website addresses. The user interface ensures that RIM wants its users to surf the web using just one thumb. Inactive tabs do not clutter the screen and are kept hidden till needed.
BlackBerry continues to offer something extra for its business users who have been its most loyal consumers over the years.
After firing up the camera on any BlackBerry 10 touch device you can freely tap on any spot on the screen in order to take a picture with no need for a shutter button. The ingenious Time Shift feature in the camera can be activated to click multiple shots of a group photograph so that you can select the best one for every person in the picture. The lack of a dedicated Instagram app for Blackberry doesn’t come in the way as BlackBerry 10 offers excellent image editing options.
With Windows Phone 8, Android 4.1 and iOS 6 attracting customers away, BlackBerry 10 may be RIM’s final prospect to stay afloat in the highly competitive mobile device market.
