RIM shows off new BlackBerry 10 features

September 25th, 2012 at 1:30 PM

RIM (RIMM) on Tuesday gave the world a first glimpse at some new key BlackBerry 10 features during its BlackBerry Jam developers’ conference, including a new feature to help users keep track of all their running applications and a message center that lets users manage messages sent through multiple accounts. The first big feature, dubbed BlackBerry Flow, provides a series of minimized windows on users’ screens that show them all the apps they’re currently running, and it lets them easily flip through them without having to return to a central home screen and clicking on separate icons.

BlackBerry Hub, meanwhile, is a one-stop message center that lets users handle messages from multiple email accounts, BlackBerry Messenger, social networking sites and text messages all in one location. The Hub also serves as an event notification center that lets users know when they have an appointment of a meeting coming up and also gives them a list of any of their contacts slated to attend.

Finally, RIM said that its BlackBerry App World store will start selling music, movies and television shows just as the Apple (AAPL) App Store and Google (GOOG) Play shop currently do.

RIM says that BlackBerry 10 is still scheduled for release in early 2013 and the company will begin testing the operating system with carriers this fall. RIM will start accepting submissions for BlackBerry 10 applications on October 10th.
