The Next Big Thing For BlackBerry 10**

Yeah, you read that right!! It’s been in almost every Blackberry blog, forums and almost every tech website, so we’ve tagged it The Next Big Thing for Blackberry 10, it’s the Blackberry OS 10.2.1. Its still in a Beta testing (not official yet) but has been installed by many Blackberry 10 users already, and we at FathomBerry have compiled a couple of of features that come with this leak.

Now there are lots of new stuff that came with this OS update tho its just a little addition in the number (from 10.2.0… to 10.2.1..), some people have even said that the official release might just be 10.3 but as of now the leaked version is at 10.2.1.1055 for all Blackberry 10 devices.

We’ve done our best to compile, break down and explain these features. We’ve also added lots of images, so go through them and just incase we missed something, your comments are always welcome.

BlackBerry 10.2.1 will support the Android 4.2.2. Jellybean runtime and with that comes increased Android compatibility improvements which include:

……Who Really Should Own A BlackBerry?? **

This thought has been lingering on my mind for some time now, about “who really should own a blackberry?”

I was at my work place recently and this bloke steps up to me, and says ‘please I can’t find my pinging’ :/ (Lmao); as funny as it sounded, I felt really disappointed. First of all, his grammer was bad enough to own such a resourceful device like this. Going back to the drawing boards, what are BlackBerry(s) really meant for? Business? Yeah!; Communication? Yeah!; Socialization? Yeah!

Now we all can agree that these are like the three (3) major reasons why you should/could own this device. Now this my guy here really had no reason to owning a device like this, looking at it, what kind of business can this guy carry out on a smartphone smarter than himself? or what calibre of friends will he be socializing with?

Though, even some of us who claim to be literate, and all, we still send silly, shallow and baseless BCs, put up shameful pictures and abuse this precious device. Are we @FathomBerry supposed to do some kinda post on ethics?? naaaah! Don’t even expect it.

So whether its a gift or you actually bled and sweated to get this smart phone, please treat your device with some iota respect and dignity. Learn how to use it properly, we @FathomBerry exist for this exact purpose. Ask us anything, we don’t mind giving BB 101 lessons 😀

Some updates before we say tata!

* Summing up the latest rumors around the features and specifications of the first BlackBerry 10 full touchscreen phone, rumored to be the BlackBerry Z10. We got to even see the specs. As we know it, the “BlackBerry L-Series” is a compilation of devices (London, Lisbon and Laguna) that will slightly differ across the various regions in which they will be released. In short, that means that while they should all visually look the same on the outside, some of the internal hardware will vary and allow for different network access throughout carriers in these areas. So here are the specs :

-Processor:
Dual Core 1.5GHz TI OMAP 4470・ Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960 (US and Canada)
-Radio:
Quad Band HSPA+ / UMTS (850/900/1700/1900/2100MHz) ・Quad Band GSM / GPRS (850/900/1800MHz) ・Quad Band LTE: Bands 2,4,5,13,17 (700, 850,1700, 1900MHz)

* WhatsApp
We actually heard there might not be WhatsApp on the BB10 yet, the thing is most companies when asked will give that sort of generic answer because chances are the person you’re asking either doesn’t know or doesn’t want to say, but recently a response was gotten that it will be available on launch. Nice!

* Playbook OS
The BlackBerry playbook Os has been updated to 2.1.0.1314. Comes with some fixes.

* Beta Zone.
The Blackberry Beta zone is now available in 23 additional countries.
Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Rep. ,Ecuador, France, Germany, Guatemala, Honduras, Indonesia, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, Panama, Peru, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Venezuela.

I believe we all have seen the new twitter and Facebook Apps already so that no news and yeah, Blackberry has decided to change the name of their online app store from ‘BlackBerry App World’ to ‘BlackBerry World’ because there’ll be more than just Apps in the BlackBerry World come 2013 and BB 10.

And just a little something something, President Barack Obama still uses his BlackBerry 😀
