Images of RIM‘s long-awaited Blackberry 10 platform have surfaced online ahead of its launch, giving us a glimpse of the upcoming software.
The image (right), which shows BB10 running on the BlackBerry Torch 9860, was obtained by CrackBerry via an email supposedly sent by one of RIM’s external ad agencies. As you can see, the software will equip the manufacturer’s future BlackBerry smartphones with homescreen widgets, taking cues from its Android and Windows Phone 7 rivals.
Further leaked photos show that BlackBerry 10 will also offer an iOS-style app launcher, alongside revamped app icons which are much nice than those on BlackBerry 7. The email, which was no doubt for RIM’s eyes only, also reveals that the updated software will deliver a unified email inbox and support for video-calling, a long awaited feature amongst BlackBerry users.
BlackBerry 10 is expected to make its debut on the BlackBerry London in Q3 this year, so we’ve still got quite a wait on our hands. However, we may catch a glimpse at Mobile World Congress towards the end of the month, so we’ll bring you more details as soon as we get them.
