Countdown to BlackBerry 10 avatars - 6 weeks to go!

By Adam Zeis on 20 Dec 2012 10:02 am EST

Flipclock  Wreath 

A few weeks back we posted up some cool animated BlackBerry 10 avatars for the 10 week countdown. Today two more have popped up for the six week mark to keep things going. Sadly there are only 2 to choose from this time around but they are still great to show your support for BlackBerry 10 on your BBM avatar. There is another flip clock version as well as a wreath with falling snow (great for the holidays). You can right click on the image above to save them to you PC, then set them as your avatar by following the instructions below. You can still grab the original avatars here.

How to set a BBM avatar

  1. Right-click on the avatar of your choice and select "Save picture as" to save it to your computer.
  2. Email the file to the email address associated with your BlackBerry smartphone.
  3. Open the image on your BlackBerry smartphone.
  4. Press the menu button to "Download Attachment".
  5. In BBM, set the new file as your profile picture.

I've been using the Blackberry countdown app to change my avatar daily!


1. View page on smartphone
2. Save image
3. Set .gif as bbm profile pic


Every time I see the countdown app I get a strange feeling as the days wind down. It's kind of exciting and I'm terrified at the same time. Hope for the best.


The real question is after the big launch, when will the phone be available?
