  • What You Need To Know About BlackBerry 10's Hub And Flow



    By now, if you have been keeping your eyes on RIM's latest BlackBerry OS, chances are you already have heard and seen demos about two new features called the "BlackBerry Hub" and "BlackBerry Flow." These two features of BlackBerry 10 will become part of every user. Donny from the InsideBB Blog has put together a nice list of 5 things these features mean for us everyday users:

    1. BlackBerry Hub is baked in. There’s no app to download and no QR code to scan to install BlackBerry Hub. As soon as you wake up your device, Hub is running and is always just a swipe away from anywhere in BlackBerry 10.
    2. BlackBerry Hub is united. Replacing the traditional inbox, BlackBerry Hub combines your email, BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) messages, tweets, Facebook messages, appointments and more in a complete, always-on information source.
    3. BlackBerry Flow is seamless. As some apps overlap features, it can be a challenge to keep track of which app is handling which function. With BlackBerry Flow, it doesn’t matter since you can run several apps and simply slide from one to the next without losing your place.
    4. BlackBerry Flow saves time. How many times have you been typing an email and needed to add the email address of a co-worker from your contacts? I find myself in this situation a lot – BlackBerry 10 reduces the hassle and interruption of closing one thing to get information from another . Can you imagine having the ability to slide an email to the side then search your contacts for an email address? I’ve been using it for a while and these subtle nuances add up to an amazing mobile experience.
    5. Hub and Flow are a part of a “new user paradigm.” Okay, I borrowed this line from Thorsten’s keynote. But when you think about it, BlackBerry 10 is a bigger shift in how you interact with your smartphone than a simple change of scenery. It’s a change of experience.

    Sounds awesome! I'm seriously excited about this device, hoping that functionality (in this format / form-factor) will overcome whimsy and I'll be able

    That was Chen's focus. Business sector. As long as they can start turning a significant profit, BlackBerry can comeback as a big marketshare player again.
