Blackberry 10: discovery of an operating system that will count

The tone is given on arrival at the French headquarters of RIM: we will see a near final version of the operating system of the future Blackberry, but we will not be able to take over the equipment to play with. The reason? RIM wants gradually revealing its operating system and still have nice things to show at the grand launch on 30 January.

Discussion with David Derrida, Product Manager, Research In Motion, will therefore be dashed: between what he can say what he wants to imply, and what he can not reveal. Reminder, so we know already that Research in Motion will present two smartphones on January 30th: 1 Touch (with a resolution of 1280 × 720 pixels), and another with a famous keyboard, trademark historic RIM (with a resolution of 720 × 720). And for this launch, RIM wants to make it big. Its ambition: to provide the operating system that will run with the largest number of applications.

To do so, the company is preparing developers for 1 year with a tour called Jam Blackberry has already made ​​several trips around the world. Research In Motion has already passed its first challenge: improve the image of the brand by forgetting ideas we had on the OS: OS forget to owner and older, 10 Blackberry accepting applications in C + +, HTML 5, Flash, etc.. HTML5 Level, Blackberry boasts 10 have a better rendering engine iOS6. In fact, RIM has developed the best engine on the market today with a score of 486/500 on the test website performance HTML5 independent.

But we now know, the war of smartphones not played on pure performance. Apple has proved it: ergonomics should be the spearhead of all manufacturers. And it is clear that RIM has potash topic before proposing its BB10. Indeed, Research In Motion has looked at the numbers of use on iPhone and others. The fact is that 95% of applications are launched only once and that the average user will only use 6 applications per day.

One is entitled to wonder why Apple has 24 slots for apps on the home screen knowing that the 3/4 will not open. RIM will therefore offer a home screen that can display the last 8 applications open. You open the ninth, the oldest will close automatically, leaving only 8 applications running in the background. idea? Want to optimize performance while avoiding the strange ritual which means that the user must double-click on "Home" to tap the screen repeatedly to close the 30 applications open in the background.

In addition to the home screen that keeps you going 8 applications potentially actually use a screen is always available on the left with a simple swipe of a finger with all emails, SMS, social interactions of all kinds. RIM gave special care to the screen they are recognized for their effectiveness on written communication, and on that side, the worshipers of the brand will not be disappointed because the keyboard has been designed for maximum ease. Simply start typing a word to see predictions get on the next letter needed to be written.

You wrote "Good" the word "good" is written on the "n" and the word "Hello" the "j", you choose the word slipped a quick finger to choose. Again, I could see that the person in front of me to use this feature without being able to test myself, but rendering seems ultra-intuitive. And knowing the plight of today's operating systems regarding the recognition of a change of language in the middle of a message, predicting RIM will know and learn when you use the English in the middle of your message, and generally respond Blackberry 10 seems exactly what one would expect of a smartphone future generation intelligent, smooth and efficient.

And RIM has great ambitions for BB10. In fact, he wants to perpetuate the Blackberry as the third ecosystem market. Finally, after this first demonstration, it feels like after a striptease. Very excited by what we saw but frustrated at not being able to touch it. Subsequently, on January 30.
