BlackBerry Z10 AT&T 10.1 update adds new features


If you have the BlackBerry Z10 on AT&T then this next snippet of news should interest you. It has just been announced that the BlackBerry Z10 on AT&T 10.1 update is now ready at last, and this update adds some new features and enhancements.

The BlackBerry Z10 was the first device to launch running the new BlackBerry 10 operating system. Owners will welcome this BlackBerry 10.1 update to their device, although it has been some time coming. AT&T will issue this as an OTA (over the air) update, alternatively it can be downloaded via a USB cable and BlackBerry’s software management app, although with this method the update could take up to 30 minutes.

Once your device receives the update there are plenty of new benefits including features such as Skype support, an HDR camera mode, and PIN-to-PIN messaging. Other features include improved text picker, the ability to paste phone numbers straight to the dialpad, being able to turn off alerts for particular apps, and more.

Strangely, although AT&T has announced on Twitter that the update is ready, a look at the software update page that the tweet links to reveals that the download option is not yet listed for the Z10. Presumably though, this will appear at any time.

We’d really like to hear from readers with the Z10 on AT&T once they receive this update. Are you pleased that this update is finally ready? Have you received 10.1 yet and if so, what are your thoughts on what it has to offer? Let us have your comments on this.

    Yes, I am very pleased this update is now being offered. This is the “Big One” as they say because this will enable notifications in the background I am told. This means that paging applications, notification applications, Skype, Banking Apps, and Stock Trading Apps will be able to push notifications to the BB10 devices, even if the application itself is not open on the desktop (which in pre-10.1 OS is required). The update itself is a very big download, so be sure to have your Z10 plugged in to wall power if you are going to pull this down over the air, and be prepared for the size of it if you are going to use the over-the-air option: The initial first download is 345 Mb which when installed gets you to OS; however, a second download auto-launches (I was away from my desk and it auto-launched) and the second download is 2Gb (yes gigs) and it takes a long time, so be sure you are on WIFI before pulling down this update over the air. Cheers! Nice scoop, AT&T!
