Research in Motion showed off its new phone OS called Blackberry 10 today in Orlando. The maker of Blackberry phones and tablets is hoping their new OS will help bring them back to relevance. Blackberry 10 (formally known as BBX) puts emphasis on ”glanceable” information (much like Windows Phone tiles).
One of the things that RIM addressed today is how they are going to keep their superior typing experience on touch screens. Blackberry 10 will have a honing algorithm that learns how users type. According to RIM this will allow the keyboard to get more and more accurate. The keyboard has SwiftKey like technology that is activated by swiping on suggested words.
RIM showed also off a very innovative feature for the camera. After taking a picture users can use a timeline tool to scrub and select a moment right before or after your shot. Thus you can get rid of people blinking or other imperfections.
CEO Thorsten Heins finished things off by promising an ”exciting” device by the end of the year. Hopefully by then it won’t be too late for RIM.
