Screenshots of BlackBerry 10.2 leak for your viewing pleasure
Screenshots of  the BlackBerry 10.2.0.483 update have been leaked and reveal a number of new features. Included on the updated OS are actionable notifications, an updated settings app and Wi-Fi Direct. The latter allows direct communications between two devices using peer-to-peer Wi-Fi connectivity, without a router. A new App Manager is also part of the update. Back in May, we told you about a number of new features for BlackBerry 10.2, including the ability to have more than one alarm set at one time. Users will also be able to select Level 1 Notifications, which are notifications marked as being urgent.

The BlackBerry 10.2 OS includes pop-up notifications also known as toast. You can slide these up and down the screen and click on them to reply to a message. If you own a BlackBerry 10 device, or are planning on purchasing one, and want to see what the future holds, check out the slide show below. Oh, and just for the record, the update was loaded on a BlackBerry Q10.

If BlackBerry is still around and doing better by Thanksgiving then I'm getting this phone. Need a worthy replacement for my 9930.

I actually went through the HTC Evo 4G LTE and a Sammy Sprint S2 Ep-Touch. After using Android for about 7 months, I went back to my BBRY. Now I like Android, but I actually missed something easier to use with 1 hand and a real keyboard. Swiftkey is awesome on the Evo, but the S2 couldn't keep up with me typing. And with the Note 10.1 at my side I was willing to sacrifice what I could do with an Android phone, to get back what I missed about having a BlackBerry.

I'm going to go out on a very short limb and predict that the carriers will charge us $20 extra per month to use WiFi Direct.

What makes you think that will happen? There is no basis for a charge as its just 2 devices transferring something like a file for example between each other. There is no use of a cell tower when doing this. Its the same as using Bluetooth but far faster and superior.

I am still waiting for my 10.1 update from AT&T. My contract is up this month so I took a look at what smartphones they have and nothing is that great. If they do not get the BB10 update out soon I may go back to my Galaxy Note for a while.
