Video shows new BBM Video calling feature in action

Video shows new BBM Video calling feature in action
Late last month, we told you about a file found on the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device that displayed pictures and information about BBM video chat with screen sharing. The stakes were raised this morning when further images were taken from the phone handed out to developers by RIM. The image seemed to show off a feature called BBM Video with Screen Share and displayed a large picture of a young man while a smaller picture presumably displayed the caller in the lower portion of the screen.

Now, a video has been discovered that shows 7 seconds of the feature in action. Unless RIM decides to pull the feature from BlackBerry 10, it looks like RIM will have joined the video age. The January 30th introduction of BlackBerry 10 can't come quick enough for many of you.

Nothing interesting... BlackBerry/RIM is A THIEF that steal Android developer apps and publish it in their app store. RIM should GIVE the money to the android developer TIMES 10!!! and BRING WHOEVER DID THIS TO COURT!!!! --- or --- android developer SHOULD SUE RIM!!! RIM,... the phone maker who create a PIRATING APPS... an apps to pirate android aps.

That is not RIM's fault so don't blame them, they didn't steal and publish the apps, someone else did. They probably don't even know that Android has any apps.. they are stuck in 2008

It's RIM fault... RIM create an apps for pirating apps. (APK to BB.apps converter) then say "who ever pirate Android apps, will get the FREE BB10" or in they word "who ever port their android apps, will get a FREE BB10" If RIM were not behind THIS, then RIM should be a gentlement and REJECT all apps that were not pirated, and give money back to the REAL developer, and SUE those pirates... AFTER ALL, RIM knew (the pirates register to RIM as developer) the developer, and the developer bank account.

you're just another hater who got no life! you spend time just to express hatred? lol PATHETIC! pirate apps? lol as if no pirate app has been submitted to appstore and play store!! for example, the fake halo game that landed on the appstore...the fake apple apps (keynote,pages, garage band, etc) landed on playstore! and its not RIMs fault that those android apps landed on the appworld! its someone else fault! and RIM can just remove them! well atleast it work not like on the fake apps on android that full of malware and viruses! and a lot of people are tempted to dl the apk file and convert it to bar file coz some devs are too lazy to port there apps for themselves even though its so easy!

The reason that developer don't want to support RIM because they want RIM to DIE!!!.... They don't like RIM, They don't like BB. only pickapowrz like it. And even though it's easy to convert APK to BAR, doesn't mean it's it's right for the pirater.... It will be... RIM sue THE PIRATES or the DEVELOPER sue RIM... CHOOSE!!!

You don't have to. I guess your crystal ball tells you what's in the future for you?
