The mobile OS will be officially launched on January 30, 2013
Canadian mobile phone maker Research In Motion is gearing up for the official release of its BlackBerry 10 operating system, which has already been set for January 30, 2013.Before that date, however, the company has decided to show to the world what the new platform release has to offer, and has just posted a video showcasing one of its main features, namely BlackBerry Flow.
“The countdown is on for the BlackBerry 10 launch event on January 30th, 2013, and last week we asked you to vote for the BlackBerry 10 feature you’re most excited for. When I last checked on the results, you were most excited about BlackBerry Flow,” RIM’s Donny H. notes in a blog post.
The video, which can be seen embedded at the bottom of this article, is meant to show how fast users can move around with BlackBerry Flow, and that all operations can be easily done single-handedly.
The video features BlackBerry 10 expert Jeff Gadway, who performs a series of common tasks on his BlackBerry 10 using only his right hand, all filmed in a funny setup.
“I faced a small problem, though – with all the BlackBerry 10 experts on the road talking to partners and press, it’s been hard to find time in their busy schedules. So I tracked down my friend and BlackBerry 10 expert Jeff and, ahem, stole a bit of his time to show me a bit more about Flow,” said blog post continues.
When launching the new mobile OS flavor, RIM is also expected to announce the first two smartphones powered by it, which have been long rumored to be full-touch devices, included in the company’s L-Series.
Various recent leaks provided us with a glimpse at what these phones would be all about, yet users should know that BlackBerry 10 handsets featuring physical QWERTY keyboards will also be released by RIM.
