First BlackBerry 10 update now being sent out by more carriers
With users of the BlackBerry Z10 complaining about the battery life of the unit and the inability of the camera to capture recognizable images under low-light conditions, the first update to the BlackBerry 10 OS was sent out earlier this month. The problem is that not every carrier pushed out the update. While we did pass along a way to manually coax it out, that method isn't guaranteed to work which means that there might be a large number of Z10 owners whose phone is not improved.

In Canada, Rogers, Fido and TELUS subscribers were recipients of the updated OS when it originally was released. The good news is that some of the carriers that sat out the first time, are sending the update out now. That includes Canada's Bell, Vodafone in the U.K. and Bouygues Telecom in France. There are many other carriers who still need to take care of this bit of housekeeping for their subscribers, so we wouldn't be surprised to see the list grow in the days ahead.

The update includes over 60 improvements to the battery to make it run longer, and also improves the way that the browser handles video playbacks. We've already mentioned the improvement in the camera to handle low-light situations, and one change now allows developers to make third party apps run faster and smoother. The update also brings improvements for those using Gmail on their Z10. Lastly, it is now easier to import online contacts to BlackBerry Hub.
