RIM's BlackBerry 10 launch event (live blog)
Coverage of the launch of BlackBerry 10.
1/30/2013 3:49:53 PM
BlackBerry Remember is a new application -- it's about bringing content together.
1/30/2013 3:50:03 PM
Bhardwaj now rocking the Q10 keyboard phone.
1/30/2013 3:50:16 PM
Checking out the Q10 now. I wonder how it'll mesh with BB10?
1/30/2013 3:50:19 PM
1/30/2013 3:50:56 PM
You can add a note, a due date, a voice note, etc. in Remember.
1/30/2013 3:51:05 PM
The keyboard does universal search, very handy.
1/30/2013 3:51:30 PM
You can also flag e-mails, docs, and browser bookmarks and move them to a specific folder. It's a single source for content on a specific topic.
1/30/2013 3:51:36 PM
Evernote is integrated into Remember too.
1/30/2013 3:51:40 PM
1/30/2013 3:51:49 PM
1/30/2013 3:51:58 PM
1/30/2013 3:52:08 PM
Now on to media and the camera.
1/30/2013 3:52:17 PM
Nice, I like how BlackBerry Remember syncs with Evernote. Without it I'd be a mess!
1/30/2013 3:52:18 PM
1/30/2013 3:52:27 PM
1/30/2013 3:52:31 PM
Bhardwaj now holds up a white Z10. Doesn't it look beautiful, he asks?
1/30/2013 3:52:59 PM
1/30/2013 3:53:18 PM
Bhardwaj takes a photo of Heins to demo the camera. BlackBerry TimeShift allows you to capture a moment to move the photo or edit it using additional shots taken before and after.
1/30/2013 3:53:26 PM
Samsung and Nokia both have this feature in their phones already.
1/30/2013 3:53:27 PM
Talking about the camera now. Having a truly advanced camera is mandatory for today's handsets.
1/30/2013 3:53:38 PM
1/30/2013 3:54:04 PM
The phone has a built-in picture editor. You can use gestures to add effects and filters.
1/30/2013 3:54:15 PM
You can do free transform and crop with your fingers.
1/30/2013 3:54:54 PM
Heins notes that Bhardwaj never switched to another app while doing all of that.
1/30/2013 3:55:08 PM
BlackBerry users not only live stories, but we create them, Bhardwaj says.
1/30/2013 3:55:16 PM
Wow, having an easy way to edit photos on the fly is a real boon. I'd love to try that feature.
1/30/2013 3:55:17 PM
Now BlackBerry Storymaker.
1/30/2013 3:56:05 PM
It allows you to create content, choosing pictures and videos, as well as adding music, titles, credits and date. BB automatically brings it all together with effects and transitions.
1/30/2013 3:56:08 PM
You can save and share this.
1/30/2013 3:56:20 PM
Interesting...there are a lot of iOS and Android apps that do this now, but it's not built in like BB10.
1/30/2013 3:56:49 PM
So it looks like you can use this to create slideshows and video, stitching them together.
1/30/2013 3:57:25 PM
Today looks like a "sell on the news" day, with the stock down nearly 6 percent right now. It was down 12 percent going into today.
1/30/2013 3:57:37 PM
Okay, Bhardwaj is off stage.
1/30/2013 3:57:43 PM
"This is the new BlackBerry," Heins announces.
1/30/2013 3:58:02 PM
We've been working with more leading application partners, Heins says.
1/30/2013 3:58:26 PM
Eight major studios, and major music labels have signed on to BlackBerry World, he says.
1/30/2013 3:58:41 PM
Now we're talking about apps.
1/30/2013 3:58:49 PM
Hmmm, these "new" features seem very familiar and already available on other smartphone platforms.
1/30/2013 3:58:57 PM
Martyn Mallick, VP of global alliances and business development, is on stage.
1/30/2013 3:59:15 PM
Mallick thanks the partners to make it a huge success out of the gate.
1/30/2013 3:59:35 PM
Many people didn't believe we could create a BB with good app experience, but we did, he says.
1/30/2013 3:59:58 PM
I can say with absolute confidence that decision to build a platform with developers has paid off.
1/30/2013 4:00:05 PM
That's Mallick, not me.
1/30/2013 4:00:22 PM
BB10 is launching with more than 70,000 applications available for the platform.
1/30/2013 4:00:35 PM
With the momentum we've built, we'll see thousands of apps added each week, he says.
