The guys over at CrackBerry.com have come up trumps again and posted what they say are images of the next version of Blackberry’s operating system, BlackBerry 10.
As you can see from the image to the right, RIM look to be working on widgets /live tiles which have been hugely popular on other platforms. If these picture are real then us BlackBerry users are in for a real treat and a brand new experience later on this year.
According to CrackBerry they received a pretty *interesting* email, to which was attached a 14-page .pdf file full of Cracktastic goodness. The document was clearly prepared by one of RIM’s external ad agency partners as a BB10 briefing document, providing background information on BlackBerry 10 and outlining some of the OS features and ideas for how to position BlackBerry 10 in future advertising campaigns. BlackBerry 10 Phones may be months away still, but judging by the document it appears the behind-the-scenes work to begin marketing the next-generation of BlackBerry phones is already well under way.
More images can be seen below although please ignore the hardware it appears to be current devices:
Although BlackBerry 10 is a long way off from release things are certainly looking promising judging by these leaked pictures. The option of video chat is a clear indication that the new hardware will support a front facing camera.
Let’s hope the leaks continue to flow as I for one am convinced that the new QNX bases OS is going to be a real contender up against iOS and Android.
