RIM quietly adds Siri like functionality in latest BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha update
on 20 Jul 2012 07:46 pm
The latest update for the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha been delivered to developers and now that folks have gone through it quite a bit, a few things are coming to light. Sure, RIM added a bunch of stuff for developers directly such as new API access; BlackBerry App World functionality but they also quietly added some Siri like functionality.
We asked not long ago if folks thought RIM should add a function like Siri or S-Voice to the mix and most people said it wasn't important at all but if the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha update is any indication then RIM might very well be working on it.
Of course, RIM has always had voice control services built into BlackBerry smartphones but realistically, they never put much effort into it. Check out the video above to see it all in action and let us know in the comments if you think RIM should even bother with trying to pull this off as an addition to BlackBerry 10. Thanks, Innovatology!
