Leak Confirms BBM Video Chat For BlackBerry 10

By - Source: CrackBerry | B 9 comments

Revised task manager also detailed.

A leaked image has confirmed that BlackBerry Messenger video chat will be included in RIM's upcoming BlackBerry 10 platform.

RIM CEO Thorsten Heins implied that video chat would be added to BBM when BlackBerry 10 was announced, with the above image confirming its inclusion. Users will also be able to screen share during video calls.

As well as video chat functionality, a revised task manager was detailed through another leaked image. Called BlackBerry Remember, tasks and goals can be set from within the device and then grouped for later use. The service, which will be able to sync with Outlook and Evernote, also allows users to capture and organize content in other methods.

"We understand that there is a lot of excitement for BlackBerry 10," RIM said in response to the leak. "We will launch the platform on January 30th and until then we won't comment on speculation."

RIM recently sent out invites for the BlackBerry 10 launch event on January 30, where it'll reveal the first smartphones powered by the platform such as the Z10.

    Unfortunately where I live it's hard to get a good connection so this better be available on wifi.

    Boys, by your RIM stock, I've played with BB10 on the L-Series, #1 the L-Series phone is gorgeous it's the best looking phone next to the iphone, in some regards better looking, has the right screen size, and the BB10 software is awesome, if RIM had done this a year ago or earlier they'd be just as strong as they've always been. Only thing is that sometimes the software isn't as snappy as you want but it's a huge huge huge upgrade, it's in many ways better than iOS. And seems to blend the best of iOS and Android.
