BlackBerry 10 review


The BlackBerry 10 mobile operating system is one of 2013's biggest releases. The OS was originally due to be released in 2012 as a "fresh" start for BlackBerry, intended to reinvigorate interest in its smartphones.

Gesture based UI is interesting, BlackBerry Hub is useful, good multitasking, impressive keyboard, strong device management and security features

Number of bugs and quirks, Maps App doesn't match up to rival platforms

BlackBerry 10 is a much more modern and user friendly platform than earlier BlackBerry releases, with impressive built-in security features and messenger services. However it is let down by a number of minor bugs and glitches.
