A closer look at the BlackBerry 6 home screen
With the release of BlackBerry 6 getting closer, everyone is curious to see more of what makes it tick. This morning Inside BlackBerry posted up some more screens as well as a short interview with Joey Benedek, Director of UX Research at RIM. We can see here (as we knew already) that the home screen is totally redesigned, but as noted is still familiar - meaning you won't have trouble finding things or getting around. The home screen will have 5 different views to scroll between, including Favorites, All, Frequent, Media and Downloads. Another cool feature is the "quick access areas" that will allow you to select different items such as the clock or signal meter to be taken right to the app or settings. Overall a much better experience that is definitely worth looking forward to.
