RIM Gives a Sneak Peak to the New BlackBery 6 UI (Video Included)
      #36858 - 04/27/10 01:34 PM

Earlier today, during his keynote address at RIM's developer's event, RIM co-CEO Mike Lazaridis provided a sneak peak of BlackBerry 6, the new BlackBerry UI that will debut next quarter.

It's an all new user experience; fun and approachable, yet very powerful. Key highlights of BlackBerry 6 include:

- Crisp, more immersive visuals, including new graphics, animations and transitions

- New WebKit browser; it's high-fidelity and very efficient, for fast, rich browsing with support for multiple sessions (i.e. tabbed browsing)

- Multi-touch support (e.g. pinch to zoom) while browsing, viewing photos, etc.

- Graphical, context-sensitive menu pop-ups

- Redesigned core apps, plus a new media player UI

- New Home Screen experience; multiple views based on content type (All, Favorites, Downloads, Media, etc.), universal search

- New app for integrating RSS and social networking feeds

Here is a long and hip video showing off the new BlackBerry User Interface:
