A quick check on the Internet can be deduced that the expectations of the public to Blackberry 10, the operating system that Canada’s Research in Motion (RIM) has put all her hopes for 2013, are aimed at the computer compete in the second division, below Apple’s iOS , Google Android and the pair level Windows Phone 8 – Nokia with the Lumia 920.
This scenario looks the most optimistic considering that by the end of this year, analysts expect a drop in equipment sales to 6.9 million units from 7.8 million. So BB10 is presented to developers so hard: they want to start a new generation with more third-party applications that you started with Microsoft with its Windows Phone 7 (an estimated 7000).
The Blackberry Jam Americas, an event that was held this week in the United States, was the first site to release the candy from a piñata that is still in Beta 3 and it was not shown in a definitive terminal but in one test (called “Alpha B “).
The conclusions read on sites like The Verge is that it simplifies the most seen in the OS Playbook, the tablet from the company. The interface carries in her womb QNX , a concept that has permeated RIM as specialized software to third parties (for cars) and also intend to license to other companies when they take final shape with BB10.
At first glance, the video that is the end of this note, looks fluid and mixes several concepts seen in other mobile platforms. The differentiator is in an application called Blackberry Hub that integrates messaging and notifications from social networks in one place (something that is appreciated if we consider aesthetic clutter this involved in BB OS 5 and 7).
All other elements are split between how you interact with the device and the high support / update the Canadian has with developers (who may work in formats as diverse as C / C + +, HTML5 + Cordova, Adobe Air, QT and Java .
Timing is what remains to mention that right now (looking at his watch ) plays against the company. Already with Windows Phone 8 will come about with the support of his brother, the famous desktop OS, RIM’s strategy could sprout late and ineffective.
It is certain that those hours have and that any information that reveals and differentiates it from its competitors, may be vital to keep the almost-crowded mobile phone market.
