Blackberry OS Released

Blackberry has announced the release of their new OS, Blackberry OS 6.0. Research In Motion (RIM) has published sneak peak videos online which can be found across multiple news sites highlighting how they intend to snatch away more market share from the tight grips of the Android and iPhone.

Built around the same Webkit browser engine that powers both the Android and iPhone platforms, the new OS 6.0 has a newly renovated home screen which intends to make user navigation and interface a whole lot easier catering specifically for their touch screen offering, the Blackberry Storm. Moving away from the traditional Qwerty keyboard which has faithfully served Blackberry owners for years, Blackberry seems to be taking the touch screen market more seriously, further highlighting their intention to take on the highly successful Google and Apple units.

An exciting and somewhat major addition is the inclusion of tabbed-browsing which enables all users who upgrade the ability to have multiple web pages open inside the same browser. Also the media player has been given a makeover which now features the album covers, enabling browsing between tracks which is a feature popular among the iPhone and iPod crowd.
