BlackBerry 10

BlackBerry OSBlackBerry OS is the operating system which has been developed by BlackBerry for it's range of mobile and smartphones. The operating system has been specially developed to be compatible with hardware input devices developed by BlackBerry, including the touchscreen, track ball and track pad.

For business users, the fact that the BlackBerry OS allows synchronisation of mail with Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Domino is a definite plus.

The original version of the BlackBerry OS has now been discontinued, since the release of BlackBerry 10. BlackBerry 10 is technically similar in many ways to the original BlackBerry OS, but there are many enhancements to the original version of the software. The two BlackBerry smartphones which run BlackBerry 10 are the BlackBerry Z10 and the BlackBerry Q10. The BlackBerry Z10 is a touchscreen phone; the Q10 has a touchscreen and also a QWERTY keyboard.

Enhancements to BlackBerry 10 include a camera app which allows the user to scroll through time to adjust the photo or faces to reach the optimum picture using the Time Shift feature. Other enhancements include an intelligent keyboard and up to 8 "Active Frames", and the Hub, which allows you to go to directly to your messages from a single swipe, no matter which app you have running.
