I was busy minding my own business yesterday when I caught a tweet about the new BlackBerry 10 concept images that broke at CrackBerry! And might I say – Finally! This is looking like the exact direction we really want things to go! (bear in mind that BlackBerry 10 will likely not look exactly like this, but very similar).
It wasn’t long ago that BerryReview posted about the possible “Lock Screen Widgets” coming to BlackBerry handheld devices in the future back on October 3rd of 2011. Now we can see this idea unfolding (read on for images below).
Not sure who’s all following but when DevCon America’s 2011 kicked off RIM announced the new one-size-fits-all OS cleverly titled BBX. Some legal issues later and we have BlackBerry 10. The leaps over 8.0 – 9.0 are most likely RIM’s way of saying BlackBerry will be bounds over the 6.0 – 7.1′s of today.
But whatever the case may be, come BlackBerry 10, PlayBook OS 2.0 (official) and whatever else we may have to play with then I think everyone agrees this is what we want!
One thing that did confuse me a bit at first was the BlackBerry Torch 9850/60 in the images. And then I realized I too let my excitement get the best of me. Concept images are not official. But darn exciting nonetheless.
Images from top to bottom: 1. Overall home screen. 2. New possible Widget view. 3. Universal inbox. 4. What Kevin called “the super sexy call screen”. Couldn’t agree more!
