BlackBerry 10 highlights, upgraded camera and Porsche integration
RIM have had a troubled time recently with falling sales and losing market share to the likes of Android and iPhone, but the BlackBerry maker is looking to change things with the launch of the BlackBerry 10 operating system. The company has been holding the BlackBerry World 2012 event in the last few days and we have some of the BlackBerry 10 highlights for you including an upgraded camera and Porsche integration.
While the event didn’t bring with it any new handsets it did reveal many new features the software will bring with it once it is released. First up we have a demonstration of an app that showed off application switching and multitasking, and as CrackBerry are reporting Vivek Bhardwaj who took the demonstration said “It’s not just about being notified about a conversation. It’s really being immersed into it instantly”, and during the demo that can be seen below, you can see that BlackBerry 10 will truly have a one handed operation.
The upcoming BlackBerry 10 operating system has got many people excited about the camera software, and it is being reported that the company has added face detection to the camera along with the ability to go backwards and forwards in time. For instance if you were taking a picture and someone blinked that person can be isolated to adjust the picture for the perfect image.
Also as the screen is touch sensitive you will be able to touch anywhere on the screen to capture an image. We will all be aware how more connected modern cars are nowadays to our smartphones, but RIM showed off the BlackBerry 10 OS that was connected to a Porsche Carrea during the event. The car had four screens inside it but as CrackBerry are reporting they were all connected to an ecosystem based on the BlackBerry 10 OS and controlled by only one device.
Are you looking forward to BlackBerry 10 and do you think it will turn RIMs fortunes around?
