All my good intentions of understanding more about Blackberry’s new user interface Blackberry 6 (arriving in July) sort of disappeared when Boom Boom Pow from the Black Eyed Peas started playing on the introductory video.
I just bopped my head backwards and forwards a bit and stared at the flashing screen, mesmerised…. watch it below:
But if you failed to remember anything from that video except the bit where the man in the suit sort of fondles his chest, then here are a few bullet points to clear up the essential take-aways.
What to expect from the new Blackberry User Interface:
– Crisp, more immersive visuals, including new graphics, animations and transitions
– A new faster and more efficient browser (with tabs!)
– Multi-touch support (e.g. pinch to zoom) while browsing, viewing photos, etc.
– They have redesigned the core apps including slapping a new UI on the media player
– New Home Screen experience; multiple views based on content type (All, Favorites, Downloads, Media, etc.), universal search
– New app for integrating RSS and social networking feeds
