BlackBerry 10.2 shown in action on video!

A quick video of BlackBerry 10.2 in action has surfaced, showing the much-anticipated actionable toast notifications, marking contacts and groups as high priority, dark theme in settings, and many more nice little tweaks. Apparently level 1 notifications will be easily accessible with a pinch gesture. 

Lock screen previews aren't working just yet, but this is still very much still a work in progress. We've also seen some shots of the stand-alone Evernote app, settings for Wi-Fi direct, multiple alarms, and a few other features. All in all, BlackBerry 10.2 is shaping up to be pretty solid.

What would you like to see in the next BlackBerry 10 update? Personally, I'd love to get my U keyboard shortcut back in the hub.

For sure Verizon will be the last to push it out, probably be waiting for 10.1 yet on the Z10. Slowest Company in the world!

XDrew42

Lol. Was thinking the same. They launch 10.2. We Verizon will get 10.1. Oct. Maybe. Luckily I installed a leak. Loving it.

I wonder how long before the guy is fired from wherever he works. I doubt BlackBerry will be very happy about them giving away their trade secrets.

BruvvaPete

These things have been leaked for a little while now. Read the blogs. BlackBerry has no input in what another company does with its employees.

Blackberry is happy to get something like this out... the way their stock is doing they need a miracle to stay in business.

Yeah dark theme for z10 please!

Posted via CB10

ezapper2

Not gonna happen. LCD likes white. Amoled likes black!

It's optimized this way for a reason

Posted via CB10 on Z10

LtHavoc21

Yeah but wouldn't that help the Z10 battery life.

Posted via CB10

vagos2006

A dark theme for the z10 will not affect battery life. Whether the screen is white or black it will use up the same amount of power off the battery because the screen is a LCD. The only power savings you get from a dark theme will be on the q10 because it uses AMOLED. That's why the q10 has the dark theme it helps with battery life. Dark uses less power, whites use more power.

Posted via CB10 from my Awesome Z10

shefiu

Many of us know the benefits of the dark theme and AMOLEDs but why can't the Z10 get the dark theme for consistency across BlackBerry 10, even as an option?

Posted via CB10

vagos2006

I completely agree with you, I would love to have the black theme as well. I really like it. But from what someone commented below they said the LCD on z10 eats more juice than white theme. So maybe thats why I guess its no available. But I wish they did as an added option for those who want it, like myself as well.

codemaker

The way I understand it, LCDs use the most power displaying black and the least power displaying white. They don't draw a constant amount.

vagos2006

Interesting, I didn't know that I thought it was the same. So if that is the case then it makes sense to have the z10 on a white theme rather than black. BB world is all black so I guess we use a lot of battery juice for that. lol!

TheRealFixxxer

LCD's consume the same amount of energy regardless of the colour being displayed. AMOLED, on the other hand, consumes minimal energy when displaying black and maximum energy when displaying white.

A dark theme would do nothing for energy consumption on the Z10, however, the theme looks better and is easier on the eyes (for some), so I see no reason not to give users the option.

Those toast notifications resemble the way a text message pops up at the top of the screen in iOS

Posted via CB10

Plazmic Flame

This style and concept predates what iOS is doing. We saw it in the leaked slides for BB10 from way back when. Had they released earlier, people would have said iOS is copying BlackBerry, which would have been amazing to hear people say, lol.

At least they will have a +1 on iOS by allowing you to action the notification right from the popup.

Optimus4

Agreed, but if thats the best spot they should do it. However I wonder if they should consider the bottom of the screen just like the address bar in the browser. It is easier to access with one hand. I have an iPhone for work and hate the notifications at the top. I do like how blackberry lets you respond in the same screen. I never respond on my iPhone because I know it will leave what I am doing. Needs BB flow.

birdman_38

Good idea. That would also be a good differentiator for BB10

Posted via CB10

amp1080

Nice! Yes dark theme for z10! Kris: any idea if they added or will be adding separate notifications for bbm groups?i know I can remove it from the hub but I'd like to just have the red light notification when a group received a message. Thanks for the vid!

Posted via CB10

mermonster

I hope they make the notification thing that drops down from the top easier to use. Buttons to reply or dismiss are clunky.

They should allow you to swipe it down to reply or swipe it up to dismiss (or timeout)

Posted via CB10

Gatso7

+1! Swiping makes actions easier when the buttons are small.

Optimus4

+1 brilliant. Everything that can swipe should in BB10

ezapper2

So far I don't see much on 10.2 to get me that excited. I hope to see more and hopefully BlackBerry corrected all the things we complained about.

Still only see minimal options on the settings swipe down. What about quick access to network connection, mobile hotspot, wifi direct, etc????

Posted via CB10 on Z10

Thunderbuck

Not sure what you mean. A swipe from the top will give you your WiFi status and a direct link into settings.

vgorous

So BlackBerry now has a feature that the other OS has had for a while now. But just curious, does the other platforms allow you to message right there when you receive messages?

Posted via CB10

Fanatix85

Yes. But, in the other OS you click on it and it takes you to said app, it does not allow you to reply right from the drop down notification.

TheStoof

It's also pertified and baked in. Jailbreak versions were just awfully designed and buggy.

Posted via CB10

We had similar functionality with the Leave It On app for BlackBerry. I loved that app since Storm 1 and was hoping it would make it's way to BB10.

advil_yum

Not sure I like the "Toasts". I guess it depends on how it's implemented and what options there are. I would find it annoying with these popping up all the time in front of your screen.

Fanatix85

I would too. However, it can be turned off from what i've read.

codemaker

Yup. And from the sound of this video, you can enable it only for "priority notifications/contacts" and let everything else work how it does in 10.1. I am excited, this looks awesome.

ofutur

I know the z10 didn't sell well, but should BlackBerry really focus on consumer features right now?
Delivering actionable notifications so that they can say that they're among the first to do it?
I'm really hoping that the business and productivity features are just taking longer and that we will see them land in August.

Note to BB: Dark theme and OLED screen combo = disaster outside

Any info about android runtime 4.2.2? Believe me its very crucial for BB10, i am true supporter of BlackBerry apps, i have 39 BBW app on my z10, most of them are not free apps. And only 6 converted from android, would like to install direct from BBW or even will buy if its not free.. but?? i saw some users switch back to other brand when they realize BB10 lacks of gimmick apps or even no chance to convert it because of lower android runtime version.

Posted via CB10

How about allowing the text box to scroll down as you type so you can see what your typing or when you get multiple hits on the same contact first name and they fill the screen you can scroll to the the bottom most contact and access it.... ON a Q10.

I would love the apps they've been flashing at all the events like Citrix Receiver and SiriusXM to finally be available. I'd take all of that before these tweaks.

As well: Distribution Lists (Outlook) to Contact Groups (device), keyboard shortcut for ending a phone call as I constantly close the app and it doesn't end my call, Data monitoring app which includes ROAMING (no apps do it), Disabling the ALT Lock (when I use the Alt for uppercase/#s it sticks and end up typing a whole bunch of symbols that I have to go and backspace, Time Shift pictures don't save unless you manually pic the best shot then click save (who has time to do that between every shot) and why is there no flash with Time Shift?

That's my vent for the day.

I really miss the option of reporting spam as now I don't delete spam and fraud emails on my Z10 and wait till I open the Gmail or my Outlook email in my PC or laptop and report them spam and phishing there as deleting th on device just erases them and I keep getting spam and fraudulent emails from the same addresses again and again. Comon BlackBerry team, please add the basic option of reporting spam in emails again and improve it with report phishing option! Thanks a bunch in advance!

Still no notification bar or icons for missed or waiting events like legacy bbos! Why oh why. Its been asked for since bb10 launch. I am losing patience with bb and being a test dummy for them since feburary. They delayed bb10 for almost a year sighting that the os was not ready and they wont release a half baked os. It is still half baked four months after launch, no wonder it only sold so few. Blackberry shape up or ship out!

Great post, and thank you! I'd love to see groups for SMS and email and the ability to chose whether to go into bedside mode when charging (the 9900 gives the option).

But pls BBry, get rid of that audio popup box..we all know what those buttons are for! For those beotchin 'bout a music app really need to try NEUTRON - simply phenomenal! And a native BB app to boot.!

I simply am asking for: option to - bold or colour or both, the title name in a Contact..so as to seperate them from each other. Also to make the app way simpler (if we choose). I could care less about someones LinkedIn profile/education...that has no place in "contacts"...Thats what LinkedIn is for!!

what I would like in 10.2:
1. Better Maps (view modes, alternative routes, more useful functions)
2. Better Email service (slow on sending emails and receiving emails)
3. The call functionality should be a built-in thing not an app coz its annoying that I have to open an app to make a call. Also Search functionality should be built-in so that I wouldn't need to open an app.
4. Better standby time so that the battery would be much better.
5. Better Music Player with the option to play from locked screen and no need for opening musics app
6. Ability to open the app that i'm using straight from the HUB.

Theo Groenevelt

Heres one: how about having the option of leaving ones music app stay active and ON screen? For in the vehicle I use NEutron and a VM 605 BT

BlackBerry NEEDS to fix the Hub. It is SOOO annoying that it does not reset into Hub, and stays in text, email, etc. A few times I've had to restrain myself from throwing this thing simply because of this simple problem.

BLACKBERRY : You've stepped upto the plate, now its time to hit the ball out of the park. You CAN do this.

It would make much more sense to give us the option to merge contacts details into one final contact.

For example, for every contact source such as yahoo, gmail, outlook, or z10 you should be able to see a merge screen and be able to consolidate each contact detail into one single contact on z10. We should be able to select the data flow source and direction. So for example if I update a contact field on bb10 or on my outlook or for example gmail the field will propagate both directions.

But if a facebook contact updates details it could (through the link feature), let the data flow through to the bb10 contact but not the other direction because I do not have ownership of my facebook friend's data.

But in all cases what I want is a complete, updated, single bb10 contact. One contact per person.

The crazy linking system we have now NEEDS to be corrected!!!
