As you know BlackBerry (a.k.a Obama phone) is hot stuff. This must be exciting news for BlackBerry fans. The new OS has been brought to light by the blog named Boy Genius Report (BGR).
First, it looks like the entire operating system has been overhauled specifically with touch devices in mind. The browser is based on WebKit, and it supports multiple tabs and tab switching, multitouch, and a new way to access bookmarks. Also, it has kinetic scrolling, rubber-banding and pinch-to-zoom are all included, which makes it feel more natural. Not to mention, the operating system also includes modal pop-ups with gestures. When a user presses and holds the screen, a menu will appear with different options.
There are so many smartphones, and smartphones have made a big mark throughout the world, even so, BlackBerry continues to be the top selling smartphone brand in the market. Based on the fact that RIM, the developer of the BlackBerry smartphone, has released its financial results for its fourth quarter and 2010 fiscal year. It says US$4.08 billion in revenue, which is an 18 percent year-on-year increase, with 35 percent overall revenue growths for the fiscal year. The BlackBerry OS 6.0 will be released sometime in June.
