BLACKBERRY10 OPERATING SYSTEM
We covered our BB10 explanation in our Blackberry Z30 Report, but it merits mentioning once again as it clearly demonstrates how much easier it is to navigate than any other on the market today. The Blackberry 10 OS is manipulated through four screens, each of which can be found by swiping left or wipe on the screen. To the far left is the Blackberry Hub displaying VM, SMS, PIN, all e-mail and social feeds that have been configured for the device.
Just right of this is the Notification Hub where all notifications arrive in real-time. SMS PIN and others can even be answered within the Hub without the need to exit and go into that application.
To the right of this is a screen which will contain active apps that have been reduced. For instance, one may have such things as the Internet, camera, SMS, e-mail, phone, and even add-in apps such as translators and currency exchange calculators all active and running at the same time. Simply click on any one to enlarge it or click on the ‘X’ to shut it down.
Swiping left then brings up two icon screens, as well as any other if you decided to personalize and create another screen yourself.
Also, pulling down from the top on any screen (except an open APP) will bring up the Quick Settings screen where you can find such things as Settings, Rotation Lock, Mobile network, Airplane Mode, Bluetooth, Wifi, Alarm and several other choices. Last but not least, when in an Application, pulling down from the top of the screen may provide settings and help for that application while pulling from the right to left my afford additional options within that program.
