At the BlackBerry World, RIM revealed details regarding its upcoming OS – BlackBerry 10. RIM says BlackBerry 10 has been built “on the core values and exceptional user experiences that have attracted more than 77 million BlackBerry customers” and is emphasizing on gestures that will allow users to multitask quickly and efficiently.
BlackBerry is known for its physical QWERTY keyboards but interestingly, the BlackBerry 10 concentrates more on the touchscreen front. However, this does not mean RIM will adopt a similar strategy to HTC’s.
RIM also introduced a BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device and as is evident, this prototype device sports a 4.2-inch (1280×768) touchscreen display, micro-HDMI support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and microSIM support.
