While getting ready for the release of its first smartphones running under the new BlackBerry 10 operating system, Canadian mobile phone maker Research In Motion is providing developers with software updates so that they can successfully build applications for the platform.
The latest of these is the BlackBerry OS
version 10.0.9 Bundle 388, which comes with apps and screens that offer a glimpse at what the final release will have to offer to its users.
Included in this release are the BlackBerry Messenger (BBM), BlackBerry App World storefront (purchases are disabled), Browser, Calendar, Camera, Contacts, Games, Home screen, Lock screen, Out of the box experience, and Settings.
The update is available for download for the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha devices that have been handed to developers several months ago. Additional info on the new software can be found on RIM’s support website
