RIM Laps Up BlackBerry 10 Love
RIM showed off a prototype of its next-generation BlackBerry smartphone, dubbed the Dev Alpha B, at its BlackBerry Jam event in September.
Key features of BlackBerry 10 include BlackBerry Flow, which allows "seamless navigation" across open applications, according to the Waterloo, Ontario-based firm. RIM is also making a song and dance about BlackBerry Hub, which consolidates messages, notifications, feeds, and calendar events. The Hub lets users access these services with a simple gesture, regardless of what they are doing with the device.
Other new features include BlackBerry Keyboard, which RIM's touting as a way to help users type faster and more accurately, and BlackBerry Balance, which keeps personal apps and information separate from work data.
RIM said that its Jan. 30 launch event will happen simultaneously in multiple countries around the world. As well as marking the official launch of the new BlackBerry 10 platform, RIM will also unveil its first two BlackBerry 10 smartphones.--Written by James Rogers in New York.
