RIM launched the BlackBerry 6 operating system in August last year on the BlackBerry Torch smartphone with a redesigned interface, expanded messaging capabilities to manage social media and RSS feeds, an advanced multimedia experience, a new Universal Search tool and a new Webkit-based browser.
The new interface includes multiple views that help users better organise their applications and content. Icons are arranged on the Home Screen in 5 customisable views and users can organise where they want their icons to appear or add contacts or web page shortcuts directly to the Home Screen.
BlackBerry 6 also offers context-sensitive Action Menus. By clicking and holding the trackpad or through an extended touch of the display, users can bring the most common actions or tasks of an application to the surface.
Additionally, holding down the Menu key brings up a visual grid of all the applications that are currently running, enabling users to instantly switch between applications.
And on the Home screen, RIM adds a Universal Search tool allowing users to search for any content on their handset, the web or in the BlackBerry App World.
Meanwhile, the Social Feeds application provides integrated access to BlackBerry Messenger, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, AOL Instant Messenger, Google Talk, Windows Live Messenger and Yahoo! Messenger applications.
The text Messages application also includes the ability for users to now view a conversation in one threaded ´chat´ as well as share photos, videos and other rich content.
