RIM Licensing Part of BlackBerry 10 Camera Features from Scalado

 Keynote camera BlackBerry 10

I didn’t put two and two together until Techcrunch confirmed that RIM’s demo showing a “hint of the BlackBerry 10 Camera features” looked familiar. A company called Scalado has been doing it for awhile and demoing it on HTC Android devices with their Remove and Rewind technology. Techcrunch confirmed with RIM that they are licensing the technology from Scalado as part of the camera features in BlackBerry 10 with this statement:

RIM has been working with Scalado on camera technology and has licensed some of the Scalado technology for the BlackBerry 10 platform. As shown during the BlackBerry World Keynote, RIM is planning a unique implementation of the technology on BlackBerry 10 to provide an incredible user experience, allowing for more customization by the user and enabling them to easily capture and share their perfect moments.

Kudos to RIM for spotting some great functionality. I hope they have many more tricks like this up their sleeve.

  1. Those sly foxes… Hmmmmmmm wonder what else will pop up between now and BB10′s release…

  2. Yes, we don’t care where it comes from. That’s the tech world you creat stuff and licence what’s good that you didn’t creat to make a great perfoming package.

    If it was Apple it would have been headline news on all the blogs, however, and Steve Job’s creation from the after life.

    • LOL. I loved your quote about Apple. It would be “revolutionary”, like the new iPad. I always say that all they do is take technology & then act like they invented it. Take for example “cut & paste” or “multitasking” which I had been doing on my bb for years before they even considered it an option, not a feature like they consider it.

  3. Android app with similar features already out in market: http://pixature.com

  4. Awesome feature!!! Saw the same feature in Android app SLIDER CAM at http://www.pixature.com
