5 Good things about New Blackberry 10 OS

Research In Motion (RIM) unveiled the all-new Blackberry 10 operating system. This OS is based on UNIX. The BB10 was expected to give tough competition for the Android OS. But we all know that it can never happen. Basically I'm an Android Lover, so I'm saying like this.

When I looked into the new BB10 OS, I liked some features and some I didn’t. Now I’ll tell you about them.

5 Good things about Blackberry 10 :

Smart Keyboard

 Blackberry phones are well known for easy E-mail composing and chatting on its messenger.
The predictive keyboard on the new BB10 shows up the words it thinks you want to type just above the letter you just pressed. Just swipe up to enter it. This seemingly makes typing easier than with conventional predictive keyboards like Swiftkey.

Unified inbox – Blackberry Hub

Dubbed Hub, the unified inbox on the new BB10 phones is always just a swipe to the left away. The Hub is cooked right into the OS, so it’s not actually an app like on Android. This makes it possible to access it from every corner of the operating system with a simple swipe.

For a device primarily oriented to texters and email fiends, the integrated Inbox is a great feature. But you won’t get only emails into the Hub – you can access your other communication apps from there, including, say, Skype or Twitter.

Super secure

 Blackberry phone are usually used by corporates. BB10 is just what they want, its super secure. Security has always been a sensitive issue for the open source Android, and customers interested in using it in secure environments had to opt for third-party solutions, like Samsung’s SAFE.

The New BB10 has built-in super security which has been awarded the FIP 140-2 certification, meaning it’s safe for corporations and government agencies to use.

Blackberry Balance

Blackberry Balance is RIM’s implementation of contextual profiles – in other words, the phone has two modes, one for work and one for personal use. Users can quickly switch between the two modes, simply by swiping down and clicking on an icon.

The best thing about Balance is that you can have apps (even the same one) running simultaneously in the two profiles. For instance, you can have your Twitter account running on the personal profile, and the corporate account in the other. Needless to say, system administrators will love it.

Innovative interface

RIM has produced an interesting new interface. On the main screen you have the currently running apps, frozen as frames that act pretty much like widgets. Swipe left, you get the Hub, the unified inbox. Swipe to the right, you hit the app launcher.

Yes, you can emulate this behavior with a custom Android launcher, but honestly, it’s a breath of fresh air to see it the default UI on BB10.
