You generally can tell when a product is about ready to launch when a bunch of pictures and videos begin to hit the web. Lately weâ€™ve shown you a lot of pre-release BlackBerry devices and a few of them have running the now infamous BlackBerry 6 OS. A few of weeks ago we brought you RIMâ€™s official promotional video announcing OS 6.
Andrew Bocking, VP of Handheld Software Product Management, said this about the new BlackBerry OS:
In the almost ten years Iâ€™ve worked at Research In Motion (RIM), Iâ€™ve never been as excited about a BlackBerryÂ® software launch as I am for BlackBerry 6, which is on track for release this summer. Iâ€™m absolutely in love with the BlackBerry 6 experience and I expect other longtime users like me will feel the same. I also think the wide range of changes and added features in BlackBerry 6 will attract a lot of new users to the BlackBerry platform.
Andrew also went on to say:
In addition to the new fluid user interface, the new video illustrates a few of the new applications and features in BlackBerry 6 that will provide users with a mobile experience that is both fun and approachable, yet extremely powerful including:
- redesigned home screen
- universal search
- context-sensitive pop-up menus
- revamped BlackBerry Browser powered by WebKit
- new applications like Social Feeds (which integrates all your news and social networks into one destination) and more
There is still no official release date for OS 6, but weâ€™re expecting it to launch sometime in the thirty to sixty days. So what do you think ofÂ OS 6 and the video?
