Research In Motion has confirmed its new BlackBerry 10 operating system will finally be unveiled on January 30, 2012. Two new smartphones running on the OS will also be seen for the first time.
“In building BlackBerry 10, we set out to create a truly unique mobile computing experience that constantly adapts to your needs. Our team has been working tirelessly to bring our customers innovative features combined with a best in class browser, a rich application ecosystem, and cutting-edge multimedia capabilities. All of this will be integrated into a user experience – the BlackBerry Flow – that is unlike any smartphone on the market today,” said RIM, CEO and president, Thorsten Heins.
“Thanks to our strong partnerships with global carriers and a growing ecosystem of developers, we believe our customers will have the best experience possible with BlackBerry 10. We are looking forward to getting BlackBerry 10 in the hands of our customers around the world.”
Some of the new features of BlackBerry 10 OS that we have details on include BlackBerry Flow user experience for navigation across open applications and BlackBerry Hub that displays all messages, notifications, feeds and events into one place that can be accessed via gestures.
BlackBerry Keyboard is said to learn how you write and adapt over time to let the user write faster and more accurately. BlackBerry Balance has also been confirmed, which helps consumers keep their work and home life separate.
