BlackBerry 10 Home Screen Shown in Leaked Images

By - Source: Tinhte | B 30 comments

Apps and notifications layout depicted, as well as first look at voice search.

Research in Motion's upcoming mobile operating system, BlackBerry 10, has been showcased in a batch of images that depict its home page, among other features.

Striking similarities to both Android and iOS in terms of its layout, social networking apps such as FourSquare and Twitter are present on the home screen, joined by Facebook and LinkedIn.

Other applications present on the home screen includes text messages, BlackBerry Messenger, standard media (music, video, pictures), Remember and Docs to Go. A voice activated app similar to iOS's Siri is also showcased, which will allow users to utilize voice commands to send messages and set reminders.

The images also offer the first glimpse of BlackBerry Hub, BlackBerry 10's new all-in-one messaging center. It enables users to manage multiple email accounts, BlackBerry Messenger, as well as social networks and more from the same portal.

Whatsapp, an app that sends 300 billion messages per month, confirmed that it won't support BlackBerry 10, but didn't reveal whether that's a permanent decision.

RIM will launch BlackBerry 10 on January 30, as well as reveal the first devices powered by the forthcoming platform during an event on the same date. The L-Series model of the handset was recently showcased in its own set of leaked images.

    Well, you can try tiles, and sell squat like Ballmer and the boyz. People like familiar look, but at the end it is how the multitasking work, and how easy and intuitive gestures are.

    I've been playing with the BB10 on the playbook and it seems to be pretty good considering its not supposed to work on the playbook but that's what side loading is for. I'm waiting for the one with the keyboard. I just want to press m for messages, b for browser, c for contacts, u for calculator and o for options. I love buttons :p

    WP has square tiles on a screen and looks nothing like android. In fact, computers have had square tiles on screens for years before smartphones came along, and when android showed up nobody said 'Android looks just like X'. Surely they could have been a little more creative.

    Black Berry should win a Academy Award for "Best Comedy" - This BB 10 is is a joke. Still years behind in innovation. I can't wait till BB total tanks and I'll be there watching while having my popcorn and pop.

    Just wait for the reviews, then try it for yourself before making such wise statements.

    That one is actually correct, believe it or not. I'm disappointed that I didn't see the dog mentioned, though.

    It's a weird world we live in where Microsoft is the most innovative in the smartphone market. There's BB/Android/iOS all ripping each other off, and then there's WP8 which actually looks and feels new.

    Blackberry used to make great phones. I hope this works out for them. Looking good so far.
