  1. This looks amazing already. Especially the red on black. Thanks for posting this.

  2. wow looks great… how about the Lock Notifications change from More messages to scroll and check all the messesages from Lock Screen

  3. Looks good. The only thing that they need to ensure is that all relevant patent owners are on-board with contracts in place to avoid any trolling patents scalping for a lawsuit.

  4. How about the HUB reset when we close it

  5. Really psyched about the new camera features. Been waiting forever for panorama feature forever. Timed photo is great but obviously you need to have a good way of positioning the phone exactly where you want it.

    • I was hoping for a lower quality setting in the video camera or at least a good native video editing tool that would compress video to share later on with BlackBerry Messenger and it’s new 16 MB upload limit.

      • Ha yea me too. I normally prefer 720p (good quality without getting too big) but in the past 2 weeks I have had to email/BBM a number of videos that I took & their size was a big issue. I had to transfer them to my computer to resize & then email. The 2 that needed to be BBM’d was even more annoying as I then had to transfer the files BACK to my BlackBerry to send out :(

      • This would be a great feature for sure. A few more video editing features would be really nice. A slo-motion option in particular.
