CrackBerry got hold of some RIM internal documents, which give us a better idea of the upcoming BlackBerry 10 OS. There’s a new motion-based lockscreen, video editor and shots of the screen-sharing in action.
The new OS looks and operates very much like the Swipe UI found on the MeeGo-running Nokia N9.
Here we’ve laid out a comparison between the UI on the N9 and the one on the BB10 device from the leaked image. Looks very similar, doesn’t it? The first screen is the app launcher, a swipe to the left reveals the task manager, while a swipe to the right will take you to the unified notifications screen.
BlackBerry preliminary screens vs N9 Swipe UI
The new lockscreen of BlackBerry 10 is codenamed Cinnamon Toast and will involve some motion-based operation. Once a message comes in the screen will light up, picking the device up and tilting it slightly upwards will reveal a second row of information, while tilting it further will display the whole notification.
BlackBerry 10 is based on QNX and features a useful screen sharing feature, which allows you to share your screen while viewing a message, email or a video call. Finally BlackBerry 10 will also feature an advanced video editor, which is a direct result of the acquisition of Swedish company JayCut. Above you see the app pictured on the PlayBook slate.
