Applications[edit]

The information contained in this section has little to none of the same information contained in the reference link. I haven't read this information anywhere contained in this article actually.

Confusion between latest RIM operating system names[edit]

Do I understand it right, based on RIM's Press Release from 18 Oct, 2011, that:

(in press release the OS for RIM's tablet is called "BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0")

  • BBX is a name of software platform and it is built on top of BBX-OS (just like S60 software platform is on top of core Symbian OS). Quote from PR: "The BBX platform will include BBX-OS, and will support BlackBerry cloud services and development environments for both HTML5 and native developers [...]."
  • BBX platform may be a successor to both BlackBerry OS (formerly BlackBerry Device Software) and BlackBerry Playbook OS (formerly BlackBerry Tablet OS). Quote from PR: "BlackBerry WebWorks and HTML5 apps compatible with current BlackBerry smartphones and tablets will run on future BBX-based devices [...] Applications developed with the Native SDK will run today on the BlackBerry PlayBook and will be forwardly compatible on BBX-based tablets and smartphones." --46.119.36.60 (talk) 10:17, 22 October 2011 (UTC)


good point, I'll have a dig around and see what turns up. --Cameron Scott (talk) 11:25, 22 October 2011 (UTC)
I created a section "Software platform". It explains the difference between OS and platform. I think currently there is not enough information on both OS and platform, so there are no reasons to create the separate articles for them. --188.163.96.37 (talk) 12:41, 22 October 2011 (UTC) (aka 46.119.36.60)

It's out, why say future?[edit]

I'm surprised that a lot of pages are updated within minutes of news announcements, but the BlackBerry 10 page hasn't been updated even a full day after the release of BB10...

I know next to nothing about BlackBerry, so I'm not qualified to write anything, but I'm sure there's a lot of people out there for that!

New features section/expansion on old features[edit]

Some suggestions for updates to the features of BB10:

Android Player


Blackberry 10 introduced an Android runtime layer, which allows users to sideload applications designed to work on the Gingerbread (Android 2.3) and below operating system. Gingerbread, however, is showing signs of age with waning usage. Less than 46% of Android devices connected to the Play store are running 2.3 or below. [1] Because of this, Blackberry officially announced that it will soon update the runtime layer to include compatibility with Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) applications.[2] This will broaden the availability of big-name applications on the BB10 platform substantially.


Voice Control


Voice Control was also introduced in BB10, allowing users to send BBMs, schedule meetings, update social networks, and open apps using natural speech patterns. Voice control can also be used for typing on any screen that accepts keyboard input. [3]


Blackberry Link


Blackberry Link allows users to sync and organize music, documents, photos, and videos between a BB10 device and a computer. It is compatible with Mac and PC, and supports iTunes and Windows Media Player. Syncs are done over Wi-Fi or USB. Blackberry Link also facilitates device switches from Android and iOS as well as BB10 software updates [4]. Link transfers contacts, files, calendars, tasks, bookmarks, alarm clocks, SMS, phone logs, WLAN profiles and other information between devices. [5]

Looks good, add it in MThinkCpp (talk) 12:27, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

Changed your statement about sideloading. Sideloading is not meant for users, only for developers as stated numerous times by BlackBerry. Android runtime's purpose is to afford developers an easy way to port their apps to BlackBerry 10. MichaelTTO (talk) 15:48, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
