Posted Jan 30, 2013

You have seen our extensive coverage of the BlackBerry 10 Live event.  We are going to wrap up our coverage by highlighting some of the new BlackBerry 10 operating system features.  Some of the new features includes a Time Shift Camera, BlackBerry Flow & Peek, the BlackBerry 10 Keyboard, and the BlackBerry Hub.

BlackBerry Time Shift Camera:

The BlackBerry 10 Time Shift feature takes multiple photos rapidly.  To ensure that you grab the right photo in the small period of time that the photo was taken, you can rewind and grab the perfect spot.  This helps reduce the chances of a photo that was taken of a person that was blinking.  You can also isolate faces.  Below is a video demo of how it works:

BlackBerry Flow & Peek

BlackBerry Flow & Peek lets you quickly manage and access messages, social updates, app notifications, and other details.  This feature is very similar to the iOS Notification Center.

BlackBerry Keyboard

The BlackBerry 10 Keyboard is fast, responsive, and accurate with built-in intelligence that responds to what you are typing.  The keyboard predicts your next word and changing words is easy.

BlackBerry Hub

The BlackBerry Hub is a single place that all of your conversations including BBMs, tweets, social updates, and e-mails.  You can manage all of your conversations with one swipe.  You never have to close an app to get to BlackBerry Hub and reply to any message from it.
