Leak Confirms BBM Video Chat For BlackBerry 10

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.
