BlackBerry 10 OS fails to impress investors as stock slides; video shows new camera in action
The first day of BlackBerry World Conference brought non-stop news as the Canadian manufacturer introduced its new BlackBerry 10 OS. At the same time, the company gave away thousands of handsets to developers to allow them to start writing apps for the OS. Investors were obviously not impressed by what they saw of the new OS and what they heard about it from Wall Street, As a result, RIM's once lofty stock fell another 5.8% to close at $13.48 a share. The 52-week high is $48.65 and the 52 week low is $12.45.

Early on Tuesday we told you all about the new camera for BlackBerry 10 and one of the most interesting features is the one that allows you to "go back in time" to improve a photograph. Rather than explain it to you like we did this morning, you can check out the short video from RIM that shows you how to travel back in time RIM's new OS can give you picture perfect results.

The Titanic never had feet; it's a boat.

Blackberry sound so irrelevant with this generation of smartphone

This is because people these days closed their minds and focus on what they know is the best without considering other products. People keep on looking on what's trending and never leave their sights out of it.

Well, soon Tim cook's soon gonna patent this.... or he must have patended it already under some other tech alias... If not, this tech is gonna come to most smartphones in the near future if its a success. Nothing wrong in what the investors did. As for business, RIM has to focus on UI/UX rather than gimmicky stuff.

if only they could go back in time and fire the two losers who put the company in the position it is at now.

They were the guys that got the company successful in the first place. Investors are just buying into the ihype. I have faith that Blackberry has learned from its mistakes and will hold strong to 3rd place, I just dont see Microsoft making it, at least not until 2014.

I was set in replacing my 4s with the S3 but after seeing what bberry could offer i think im going to wait. I really like my iphone and i've had all of them, but have loved only one device, Blackberry.
