In the almost ten years I’ve worked at Research In Motion (RIM), I’ve never been as excited about a BlackBerry® software launch as I am for BlackBerry 6, which is on track for release this summer. I’m absolutely in love with the BlackBerry 6 experience and I expect other longtime users like me will feel the same. I also think the wide range of changes and added features in BlackBerry 6 will attract a lot of new users to the BlackBerry platform.
I know I’m not the only one who is looking forward to BlackBerry 6. There was a lot of excitement about our first public sneak peek of BlackBerry 6 at WES 2010, and I’m happy to share a little more today through the new video posted above.
In addition to the new fluid user interface, the video illustrates a few of the new applications and features in BlackBerry 6 that are designed to provide users with a mobile experience that is fun and approachable, yet extremely powerful. We’ll discuss these features in more detail on Inside BlackBerry as we move closer to the point when BlackBerry 6 becomes publicly available.
Of course, we would love to hear your thoughts. Post a comment and let us know which aspect of BlackBerry 6 grabs your attention the most. Is it the new user interface with a redesigned home screen, universal search and context-sensitive pop-up menus? Is it the revamped BlackBerry Browser powered by WebKit? Or is it new applications like Social Feeds, which integrates your news and social networks into one destination? Personally, those are all high on my list and I also love the fact I can add my wife as a contact on the home screen for quick access. I look forward to reading your responses!
