RIM Teases BlackBerry 6 Operating System With Promo Video
All existing BlackBerry handsets that are shipping now ship with BB OS 5. That operating system has been out for awhile now, and is beginning to show its age. BlackBerry 6 hopes to make up for lost time, introducing some of the cutting-edge features that are already well publicized on the other systems we mentioned. RIM is still keeping most of the details private, using WES as a buzz machine to get people talking. Some of the forthcoming additions include an on-screen keyboard, threaded messaging, native Facebook/Twitter access, a revised Web browser and an all-around more elegant presentation.
You're probably better off watching the teaser video below to get a really good idea of what's to come, and if the company stays on track, BlackBerry 6 will begin shipping next quarter.
