Yes at last a real look into the new BlackBerry OS 6.0, details have now emerged with a number of screen shots also.
There are some very good things to learn here with the new features, RIM has added kinetic scrolling with rubber banding throughout the OS, multitouch is now throughout the operating system like the web browser and photos, it also includes pinch to zoom.
This new OS will give you a re-vamped inbox with larger thumbnails and features built-in RSS, the homescreen has no widget support but there is a new thing called pages, BlackBerry say: “You can have your applications on the main page, then slide left or right to another page with different applications and browse that way. In the homescreen screenshot above, you’ll see a sliding field towards the bottom, and you can slide that up, and reveal the first page of applications, and you can then slide that to show the different groups, which correspond to the different homescreen page. Favourites, all, home, etc.”
The media player has been updated, WebKit browser and photos app. This new OS 6.0 should launch between June/July. For more information and screenshots please visit BGR.
