I mentioned in the past that it sometimes feels like the developers working on BlackBerry 10 have never used a legacy BlackBerry 7 device. This seems to be finally changing if what we see in the latest OS 10.2.1.1055 leak is officially released. One of the features legacy BlackBerry users have been asking for is Contact Groups. This allows you to group multiple contacts into a sort of distribution list on your BlackBerry 10 device. Contact Grouping is something that BlackBerry has offered on legacy devices for years and something that both Android and even iOS still struggle with until this day.
Its nice to see its coming. Thanks Frank for sending in this screenshot! Let us know if you can confirm on your device since I want to see if it syncs your distribution lists with Exchange or even Google Contacts. It still blows my mind that Android and iOS don’t let you do this.
