Three New Features of BlackBerry 10: Launch Events on Jan 30th

On January 30th, 2013, BlackBerry will hold launch events around the world showcasing the new BlackBerry 10.

BlackBerry and all smartphone vendors stumbled in not quickly innovating and creating newer and more compelling offers to match or beat Apple’s iPhone.

Having said this, there are millions (my guess) of BlackBerry users globally and a loyal following of BlackBerry users in the USA.

While there’s a huge push to “Bring Your Own Devices (BYOD)”, wherein corporations are not dictating that their employees use BlackBerry’s and furthermore even offering corporate provided alternative devices, BlackBerry has an opportunity, with BB10 to stem the tide and possibly regain it’s footing.

At the Small Business Influencer Awards we saw a preview of BB 10 – looks very slick and elicited several ooohs and ahhs.

Here’s three new features you’ll find in BlackBerry 10…

BlackBerry Flow and BlackBerry Hub

BlackBerry® Flow is a new user experience that allows seamless navigation across open applications and the BlackBerry® Hub. All messages, notifications, feeds, and calendar events come into the BlackBerry Hub and no matter what the user is doing with the device, with a simple gesture, they can peek into the Hub at any time.

 

BlackBerry Keyboard

The BlackBerry Keyboard learns how you write and adapts to how you type so you can write faster and more accurately, giving you the kind of legendary typing experience that only BlackBerry can deliver.

 

BlackBerry Balance

BlackBerry® Balance™ offers the most elegant way to satisfy both customer and corporate needs without compromising on either. With BlackBerry Balance, personal apps and information are kept separate from work data, and the customer can switch from their personal to work profile with a simple gesture.  The work profile is fully encrypted and secure, enabling organizations to protect their content and applications, while at the same time letting customers get the most out of their smartphone for their personal use.

    Even though I use my BlackBerry mostly for personal, BlackBerry Balance will help to keep my work items all in the same place and organize them more efficiently. I also love the Peek and the BlackBerry Hub since I run 5 e-mail accounts, Linkedin, Twitter, BBM, FaceBook and text messaging. Even with BlackBerry’s renowned efficiency, I can see from the demos that BB10 will be a far better experience for those of us who are busy.
