Some firms require a hit like Research In Motion (RIM). Hence, it supported usher in the smart phone period with the BlackBerry, Research In Motion’s market share has been falling like a stone since iPhone and Android became famous. Most of the people like us prefer the latest operating system and businesses are gradually going away from BlackBerry.
BlackBerry 10 is a big attempt of RIM to recapture the momentum that had lost in the past some years. RIM understands it requires to get this correct too, as evidenced by the number of delays BB 10 has skirmish. At presently, its set for late 2012, hence after looking at this, we would not be shocked in case it’s delayed more.
Take a look of below first-hand impressions of the latest OS after attempting it out on Dev Alpha unit with Gary Klassen, new principal architect of RIM, who joined the firm in March.
App Tray -
Klassen accepted that BlackBerry 10 has an apps tray, where you can take a look of all your applications, and start them, however would not display it to us. We caught a glance of it when one of the models froze on us and had to be rebooted, however this is all about it. The good folks at CrackBerry has once again impressed, as they handled to distract sufficient long to get few images of this screen.
Open Apps Screen -
The screen to left of unified inbox is open apps screen. This function much like a noticed BlackBerry PlayBook homescreen. In spite of setting all your open applications in one row, they are showed in grid, which you can scroll by, kind of Windows Phone Live Tiles We are not confirm how animated these tiled would be. Presently, they occur to display few basic information, however do not animate. It is a place for starting apps, which are working in memory, such as Google’s recent app menu in Android 4.0 Klaseen would not show whether these could be resized. Currently they are so big that just 4 can fit on a page.
We asked whether BlackBerry 10 would keep application completely in the background such as BlackBerry Tablet, to that Klassen told us that keeping open apps was a feature, which could be “turned off” on PlayBook, proffer that it may not be utilized on these upcoming handsets. We are supposing that BB 10 can somewhere keep applications working at time, however also when to “freeze” an application in place for starting afterwards that is the method, which iOS and Android use.
Peeking And Stacking -
To get your unified inbox, you just swipe on it like moderating homescreens on Android or iOS. The unified inbox occurs to have emails, texts, calendar events, missed calls, and other things. We suppose you will be capable to sort is but you wish. Crackberry got clicked and sneaky on the Accounts on this page to show that it is also compatible with twitter and Facebook.
To look at what you have in your unified inbox, just slide and hold your finger from screen up bottom. On right hand side, you will see few rough statistics, such as how many upcoming events and unread emails you have.
