All the BlackBerry fans may want to check this out. The first screenshots and details on BlackBerry OS 6.0 are now available to the public. Better looking interface, extended functions and pinch zooming are just some of the things that come with the next generation of the BlackBerry OS.
BGR managed to obtain some screenshots of the still unannounced BlackBerry OS 6.0. They definitely show a prettier and more user friendly interface, homescreen, browser and music player. Of course, there is some juicy info following the teaser screenshots.
The first change, which you can see from the shots, is the new web browser. It has new graphics, favorites and tab switching. There is no word on the supported number of tabs, but still it's nice to know there will be at least three of them. The new browser is WebKit-based and will support pinch zooming.
The music player has also been revamped - it now has CoverFlow-like album art and better graphics.
Another new major implementation are the pop-ups. You tap and hold (touchscreen required) on something and you get a pop-up with all available options (up to 9). For example if you do that on a an image or a video you'll get options for send/use. If you tap and hold on the message menu you may choose to send SMS, Email, etc.
The messaging and gallery apps have also received new looks. Both use nice thumbs and look modern. Pinch zooming is available in the gallery, but it's claimed RIM has a lot of work to put on it. Still the thumbnail view is much optimized, loading almost immediately.
Finally, the homescreen can be organized in page view, where you can put app shortcuts on every page (up to 6) and scroll with a finger-sweep through them. You didn't hear us say iPhone-like, did ya?
Unfortunately, we don't have any release date or even a hint of which devices will be compatible.
The new OS 6.0 is expected to be announced at BlackBerry WES 2010 in Florida at the end of April.
I don't have iPhone. Never interested on iPhone. My country won't freeze as they is no snow here. Even yes, they is a stylus for capacitive screen also. So not a big deal. I use plenty touch devices, from LG Viewty - iPod touch - Samsung Pixon -...
yeah right it hasn't even released
Therefore you are saying the us president is old fashion. When your iphone freeze up & you don't have a full keyboard. You put iphone on ice to cool off for two hrs.
