RIM show off more of BlackBerry 10 ay BlackBerry Jam Americas

Thorsten

BlackBerry®Jam Americas 2012, formerly the BlackBerry Developer Conference, has kicked off on September 25 in San Jose, California.  The conference is a showcase for the bold, new direction BlackBerry is heading with the upcoming BlackBerry® 10 platform. The flow of ideas, passion for the platform, and drive to succeed is in full display at the conference.

During his keynote, Thorsten Heins, Chief Executive Officer at Research In Motion (RIM), clearly demonstrated that the company is delivering on its vision for BlackBerry 10 to a global audience of partners and developers.  More sneak peeks of BlackBerry 10 were also shared.

BlackBerry 10 is designed to make users more productive and more efficient.  With Flow, which is at the core of BlackBerry 10, home buttons are gone and there is no need to exit an app to open a new one.  Users can move easily from task to task, and check in on their conversations, wherever they may be. With BlackBerry 10, RIM is expanding its leadership in communications, NFC, mobile social media, as well as collaboration in the enterprise.

You may want to check out the video below where Vivek Bhardwaj of the BlackBerry 10 product team shows off a few new features of the OS. It’s impressive stuff.

A little more evidence to suggest a Padfone 2 is on the way

padfone-2-leadThe Padfone does feel like it got a full release over here in the UK and save for a few online retailers you probably wouldn’t realise it was released at all. In an effort to “keep up with the Joneses” Asus have refreshed their combination device with some exciting specs, if the above pic is of an actual product and isn’t fake. The picture is supposedly of the packaging of the device and lists the specs. Here is what is listed on the box,

  • Quad-core Qualcomm APQ8064 Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU clocked at 1.5 GHz
  • 2 GB of RAM
  • 13 MP rear-facing camera with Auto-Focus, LED Flash, Zero Shutter Lag, and FullHD recording.
  • The phone’s display is listed as a 4.7-inch Super IPS+ HD with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution and the icon below the list shows “SuperAMOLED.”
  • 1.2 MP front-facing camera
  • 2,140 mAh Li-Ion battery
  • WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, Micro-USB 2.0, GPS and A-GPS
