A Sneak Peak at BlackBerry 6 – The Next BlackBerry Operating System

BlackBerry is giving a sneak peek into its new software update, BlackBerry 6. The new mobile software is expected to be released later this summer. The update adds a lot of new features never before seen by BlackBerry users.

First announced at WES 2010, BlackBerry 6 is a very significant software update with many new features. Below is the video that was shown at WES 2010.

Sporting a new fluid user interface, BlackBerry 6 features:

  • Universal search
  • An enhanced media interface
  • Social feeds
  • An updated BlackBerry Messenger
  • Simultaneous posting to social networking sites
  • A richer web browser powered by WebKit
  • Ability to add specific contacts to the home screen for easy access
  • Context-sensitive pop-up menus

BlackBerry 6 is geared towards business professionals and average consumers alike. So far, all video demonstrations have shown a touchscreen interface, leading us to believe that BlackBerry may be shying away from their classic models, such as the Curve and the Bold, to models similar to the Storm.
