It’s a tough position to be in for a mobile phone manufacturer having to compete with the likes of Samsung and Apple, but BlackBerry has proven it is ready to fight for every sliver of market share. BlackBerry 10 is a big step forward for the company, and it continues to ship updates to the platform.
BlackBerry announced today that in the next few weeks, version 10.3.2 of its operating system will ship for all BB10 devices. Along with that, BlackBerry Blend 1.2 will also be available in the coming weeks. Both of these updates promise more security and privacy measures, in addition to making users more productive.
This update to BlackBerry Blend offers a brand-new user interface with improvements to navigation and interactions based in part on customer feedback. Another big improvement in 10.3.2 is to the camera software, which includes better low light performance, more robust face detection, and reduced motion blur. The calendar is also gaining some intelligence, including a more robust Meeting Mode, which allows users to mute only certain calendars during busy periods rather than all or none.
Another big announcement for BB10 users in the US not using the Passport or Classic, this update brings a new set of icons and an improved action bar for commonly-used functions, enables the use of BlackBerry Blend, BlackBerry Assistant and improvements to the BlackBerry Hub, and opens up access to the Amazon Appstore for US users.
The update begins rolling out in the next few weeks, and is available to all BlackBerry 10 devices for free.
