When BlackBerry 10 was first launched there were some faithful BB OS users unimpressed, as they believed the new features were not as good as they had hoped. However, the Canadian firm has tried to ease people’s misgivings by introducing BB 10.1, and the changes were an improvement, although things were still not perfect.
It’s for this reason why it will come as no surprise that BlackBerry 10.2 is in the works, and Michael Clewley, the BlackBerry Product Manager has been sharing some details in regards to the updated mobile operating system.
BlackBerry 10.2 update features — There are several changes coming, such as the ability of setting a time to remember an item, multiple alarm settings, Standard Unicode Emojis is to now be supported, and finally there is to be Level 1 Notifications.
This will first be released as a BlackBerry 10.2 Beta SDK, and will have a June release, although no precise date has been given at this time. However, we’re told that we can expect the final BlackBerry 10.2 release by the end of 2013. However, as the 10.1 SDK was made available just a couple of months prior to its final release, we could expect to see BlackBerry 10.2 as early as August, although this is only a guess.
We expect more information before the beta version is released, and maybe BlackBerry will bring even more features, as well as some much-needed bug fixes, one of which is issues with reboots.
While BlackBerry is doing a far better job of keeping us more informed in terms of these new feature updates, it would nice if they were to officially announce the existence of the BlackBerry R10.
Thanks to CrackBerry.
