Video brings further look into BlackBerry 10 OS
With an impressed and confident RIM CEO Thurston Heins looking on, software chief Vivek Bhardwaj revealed the new notification system for the BlackBerry 10 OS. The goal is not to merely notify the BlackBerry 10 user about a conversation, but "really being immersed in it, instantly," according to Bhardwaj. With this new system, the BlackBerry user can be using a weather app, see that he has unread emails and BBMs, and can take a look at them instantly. Then, you can open an email if you'd like and even go further by opening up a link to a PDF file.

The advantage to this is that you can use one hand to run this function. Bhardwaj talks constantly about the "flow" and what he is saying that instead of being notified about an email, you can open it up and read it while still keeping open the task that you were originally doing. CEO Heins is certainly excited about the feature even if all the audience can muster is some tepid approval.

That would be good for all consumers, I would love to see 4 big OS as far as market share, not only Android / iOS.

indeed! hope they will license their OS! BB is really expensive but its worthy! WP, iOS, Android, and BB10! hope MeeGo/Maemo/Meltemi will also rise! and so Tizen!

hmmm, it looks good, but ill have to wait till i can try it out, maybe ill buy the evo lte out right and get this when my upgrade gets here and spend a couple months switching back and fourth, then keep the one i like more and sell the other, provided this comes to sprint and i dont fall in love with the evo lte before it drops

All they need is killer app support and I think they have a chance. I mean honestly with this slide view thing, the time lapse camera, and all the other things they might turn it all around . It's gonna be hard pulling in customers, Pulling away apple and android customers will be hard, especially if they're lacking Netflix, and all those other little time waster games on other OS. This is some innovation thought!

very webOS-que and some wp7...who cares, now they need a top notch hardware design team to come up with a stunning handset, and they have a chance....

This isnt about haters. I could say that I would never think about buying a blackberry device since there is nothing good about them, at least thats my opinion anyways. Now if this is true I could reconsider. but I would need to see if this is true. Lets face it they arent raising the bar they are just trying to catch up with Windows IOS and Android. We all know that they could but they just have one shot they cannot have another Epic Fail like the Storm. They need to get it right. It is now or never

It's about time RIM showed something that isn't outdated. And:

"I love that, I love that. That is so cool."

Of course you do.

You know they're broke when they have to use default music that comes with the software.

Nice.. I like where blackberry is heading :) personally id prefer windows phone to a bb because of the exclusivity it brings! Almost nobody has one.. Im an LG quantum owner in India, yup, India! And im probably the only one in the whole country with this phone :D so blackberry looks very promising with its bb 10! I don't see either WP or bb getting close to the android or ios marketshares! I think they'll battle it out at the high end, and windows phone and bb taking up the lower end..

This is Multitasking ! The ability to open apps and messages , and not have them conflict is Paramount !

that's called "multitasking" trolls

Wow that swipe gesture to reveal recent apps is pretty neat. No wonder there's no need for a multi-tasking button like on Android. Bet HTC now wish they'd thought of that as well for Sense 4.0.
