BlackBerry is a strong name for a mobile platform dedicated to those businessmen and politicians who prefer more secured communication and good typing experience.However,with the fast growth of Android and iOS,BlackBerry lost a lot of existing customers as some of them felt bored to play with the platform.That move made RIM(just changed the name into BlackBerry)-the holding company of BlackBerry suffered a lot and faced a severe recession and now they have BlackBerry 10-the re-designed,re-engineered,re-invented platform trying to compete with other platforms.
There are many innovated features in BlackBerry 10,but there’s only one role-to make the life richer and simpler.Let’s have a peek:
It’s designed to highly integrated into the major social network apps such as Facebook,Twitter, LinkedIn etc so that people will never miss any pieces of updates from any people you are concerned about.
BlackBerry has a very great reputation on its physical keyboard, unfortunately it didn’t happen on its virtual one.Well,it’s gone now.The creative keyboard in BlackBerry 10 will definitely make you like typing from now on.
For the BBM users,video BBM is a long-awaited feature they’d like to have and now it’s working on BlackBerry 10.Furthermore,you could share your whole live screen to your friends with BlackBerry 10.It’s a kind of seamless chatting and sharing experience.
Nowadays many people are carrying two mobile phones for entertainment(home) and work purpose.BlackBerry 10 could easily switch the mode for different purposes by BlackBerry Balance,let one phone work like two.
BlackBerry World is a all-in-one stop for downloading all apps,games,music,video,magazines,books and more.
More features are waiting for your discovery when you handle one.There are two devices(Z10 and Q10) working on BlackBerry 10 and Z10 will be in the market globally within weeks.
Nokia Here is a navigation app originally designed on Windows Phone,however,Nokia now has decided to expand it into iOS and Android free of charge.I believe a lot of iOS device users will definitely like it because Apple maps is still quite lousy in a number of places.
Nokia Here supports both iPhone and iPad with iOS 4.3 or later.The map is based on well-known NAVTEQ’s resources.It also supports community map in some countries so that users could add missing information by their own,updating the maps faster and more accurate.
The details of the features:
Upon my personal experience,I found Waze actually has more complete road information in Malaysia.Anyway,as Nokia Here is just born,it supposes to grow to be better in the coming future.
The Android version of Nokia Here is still under developing.I hope once it covers all major mobile platforms with more users,the map can become a strong competitor to Waze.
Yesterday,iPhone 5 was officially introduced in Apple event.iPhone 5 is claimed to be the slimmest and fastest iPhone up to date.
iPhone 5 has a quite-iPhone-style appearance,however,it’s actually redesigned from inside to outside.This latest iPhone is claimed to be 18% thinner,20% lighter and less 12% weight than its predecessor-iPhone 4s.
But less weight doesn’t mean to cut anything,in the contrast,it’s still being enhanced.iPhone 5 features a 4-inch retina display.That will definitely give you more convenience to type and read stuff.Apple also said that the new display will show a vivid and lifelike effect,even better than iPhone 4S.
LTE support is another revolution in this phone,providing up to 100Mbps connection.At the same time,iPhone 5 also supports HSPA,HSPA+ and DC-HSDPA in cellular network;Dual-band 802.11n WiFi connection up to 150 Mbps.Apple said they’ve done a lot of optimizing work on better battery life,especially for LTE connection.However,we could only see the result after the real testing.
A6 chip is first time to use on iPhone and it’s not only performing better than A5 chip(CPU & Graphics),but also saving battery life-twice faster than A5 chip with up to 8 hours of browsing on a cellular connection, up to 8 hours of talk time, and up to 10 hours of video playback time.
The latest generation of iSight camera now can support panorama shooting and the front-facing camera can support 720P HD video shooting.
Apple also introduced the new lightning 8 Pin connector,making it smaller,smarter,durable and reversible.You could get 30 Pin adapter to support your old i-devices too.
Apple also officially released the new maps designed by their own.It’s said to be much smooth and responsive than the old Google Maps,giving out real-time traffic information and reroute automatically.But will it run that great?I have my doubt.
Siri in iPhone 5 could answer you more,including sports scores and stats, where to eat, what movies to see — even ask Siri to make Facebook posts or tweet for you.Of course,more languages will be supported soon.
With the introduction of the new iPad,Apple also released iOS 5.1.
You have to make sure your device has more than 50% battery or has connected to the charger,otherwise,you can’t complete the upgrade process.
The whole process could be done Over-The-Air,so nothing need to be talk about as it’s too simple.Strongly suggest iPhone 4S users to upgrade iOS asap as it could fix the bug affecting battery life.And Siri starts to understand Japanese now,but sorry,no Chinese support yet.So we still need to wait Siri to learn Chinese.
