More screenshots of BlackBerry 10 have emerged thanks to our friends at blackberryitalia.it. The last time I was foaming at the mouth so much in anticipation of a product launch was last year before the PlayBook was released. I hope more is revealed at tomorrow’s keynote at BB Jam, but for now, check out the screen candy below and give us your thoughts.
Ok, this one is a little anticlimactic…I really like how the arrow is pointing up and has a purple stripe on the bottom. It is mentioned that the maps on BB10 are divided into 3 components: location, maps and turn-by-turn directions. Let’s just hope its better than the iOS6 Inception horror show. Shouldn’t be too tough. I’m imagining a nice mix of Google maps and BlackBerry Traffic. I use BB traffic daily and the only thing that is missing are maps.
The interesting thing here to note is the increase of the max number of devices connected to your mobile hotspot. 7.1 devices have 5 and it looks like BB10 will allow 3 more than that.
We’ve seen similar images of the messages screen before. Its curious that it is showing a 3G connection. It also seems the battery is pretty much drained. Let’s hope that was after a long day’s work.
I am pretty pumped about this pic of the browser. With the 10 bonus points (makes sense since it’s a BlackBerry 10 device) the browser is only 14 points shy of html5 perfection! Very cool. To put it in perspective, here is a screenshot of my 9900’s html5 test.
Ouch. And I love the 9900 browser. How many hours until the keynote?
