Fresh images of RIM’s latest BlackBerry 10 operating system have surfaced following a press event in London. The pictures show off several features we’ve already covered in detail, such as the widget-filled homescreen, improved camera interface and a new app tray, but they appear to be installed on the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha Prototype device, which originally only ran a watered-down version of BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0. There are several new details, however.
Crave said that BlackBerry 10 will scan emails, text messages and more to understand the words you use the most often, so that the keyboard can quickly learn to predict how you type. BB10 will also rely heavily on gestures for navigation so that users can quickly access applications simply by swiping a finger across the street. It’s unclear when RIM will issue an update to BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha phones but the company has confirmed that a select number of developers will receive an update later this year before it launches commercial BlackBerry 10 devices.
