Blackberry 10 was officially launched yesterday in New York and on top of the new operating system the company officially changed its name from RIM (Research in Motion) to Blackberry. You might remember RIM had a particularly awful 2012 with a huge outage which eventually costs them millions of customers.
BlackBerry 10 represents a complete overhaul of the BlackBerry operating system. The operating system focuses around the BlackBerry Hub, a universal inbox of sorts that includes your email, text messages, and notifications. Calendar information is also available within the Hub. A smart calendar of sorts, BlackBerry 10 pulls contact information for guests in meetings into calendar entries. You can access the Hub from any screen you’re on using a simple gesture.
There are currently two smartphones running BlackBerry 10: The Z10 and Q10. The Z10 is an all-touch handset with a similar look to the iPhone 5, while the Q10 has a traditional BlackBerry look with a physical keyboard.
