    1. BlackBerry Rumors



    I've been hearing about this lock-screen on BlackBerry 10 for about as long as I can remember and finally some pictures have leaked. These BlackBerry 10 slides show us what it will be like to use future BlackBerry devices when it comes to locking/unlocking and reading notifications when a device is idle.

    Apparently, to unlock the device, one will simply have to swipe up from the bottom bezel (no more unlocking from bezel to bezel it seems), or actually press the unlock/lock button.




    My favorite leaked slide has to be what's being called "Cinnamon Toasts." When a BB10 device receives a new message and is picked up the screen will automatically turn on and display a small part of the new notification. Upon tilting it more, it will show a little bit more of the message, and so on and so forth.

    The security features will take precedent though if a password is enabled and the toasts features will not work if that's the case unless the phone is unlocked.

    I am absolutely loving what I am seeing from BlackBerry 10 so far. What do you think?

    CrackBerry has gotten their hands on a couple of concept user interface pictures for the future builds of Twitter and Facebook for BlackBerry. As you can tell in the picture above, these are being displayed on a Dev Alpha device, so it's safe to assume these concepts are for the BB10 platform.

    We've been hearing though, that these interfaces might be making their debut long before BlackBerry 10 hits. With respects to Twitter for BlackBerry specifically, many of you know how much a new, revamped, and more connected UI is needed and odds are we'll be getting it soon.

    The BlackBerry Beta Zone has actively been working on getting new updates for our most popular apps and these two new interfaces are definitely in the plans. Check below for more pics!

    We knew little by little the Dev Alpha device would give us some hidden secrets about the future of BlackBerry, including the BlackBerry 10 OS. What we didn't know was that this device would also give us some info as to the future hardware for BlackBerry devices as well.

    Well today, J. Duke from OSBB, has dug up some great info from the Dev Alpha device's viewable file system. Here are some future BlackBerry device code names that he found.

    • # R044 – Nevada 0x8400270A,1
    • # R051 – Winchester2 LTE 0x0c001a06,1
    • # R052 – Winchester2 HSPA+ 0x0d001a06,1
    • # R053 – Winchester2 LTE HSPA+ 0x0e001a06,1
    • # R061 – Colt 0×04002307,1
    • # R072 – London 0×04002607,1
    • # R073 – Blackforest 0×04002706,1
    • # R084 – Nashville 0x8500270A,1
    • # R085 – Naples 0x8600270A,1

    Some of these names are a little familiar to us (Colt, London; etc) but others are not. It's possible that the Winchester2 code name could represent the 3G/4G PlayBook variants. Logically this would make sense.

    The last two, Nashville and Naples, are definitely intriguing to say the least as well. Could these be the mythical slider and full QWERTY BB10 devices? I get a feeling they very well could be.

    What kind of devices are you hoping to see when BlackBerry 10 finally comes out?

    Finally, the BlackBerry OS 7.1 is officially released in the Philippines via Globe Telecom, Inc. Although OS 7.1 has been released to some other countries already and can be used by everyone, we cannot blame the others who haven’t got the guts to use it on their devices for some reasons. This is definitely great news to every Filipino BlackBerry fan who has been waiting for this official release for quite some time now.

    Filipinos will be able to experience this awesome operating system and utilize cool added features like BlackBerry Tag that can change the way BlackBerry users share information and content. By simply tapping their NFC-enabled BlackBerry Bold 9900 smartphone against another NFC-enabled BlackBerry smartphone, users can make sharing easier than ever! They can instantly invite a friend to BBM (BlackBerry Messenger), exchange contact information, documents, URLs, photos, apps and other multimedia content, and they can also pair their BlackBerry smartphone with an NFC-enabled Bluetooth device. With BlackBerry 7.1 OS, customers can be productive virtually anywhere. They can now turn their BlackBerry smartphone into a Mobile Hotspot that can be shared by up to five Wi-Fi-enabled devices, including laptops and tablets.

    I first want to start this article by thanking everyone who watched and supported us while we were sending out coverage of the BlackBerry World 2012 and BlackBerry 10 Jam events from Orlando. We had an amazing experience and got to meet some very great fans, devs, and RIM staff. It was truly a revitalizing experience for any BlackBerry addict. Over the course of the three days, there was everything from simple meet-ups for networking, to sessions on anything BlackBerry related you can imagine. And the Solutions Showcase was particularly interesting as you got to socialize while learning about the new and existing products on the market. Here is a little overview "in a nutshell" of the days during the event. Don't worry, we have more details to come in the next coming days as well.

    During the BlackBerry World party at Universal Studios, we posted some of the first shots of the night as we saw a live demo of the upcoming Pacemaker DJ music creating app. During that same night, our guest dev writer, Corran from c2dev.org, recorded a great video of the live event from his own PlayBook! It's the best video I've seen from the event so far from an attendee. We are super exited for the release of this app into the the coming month or so, how about you? Let us know what you think of the app in action!
