We've known for some time now that the next version of BlackBerry 10 (10.3) will come with the BlackBerry Assistant built in. Having the ability to use voice commands on a BlackBerry is certainly nothing new, however from my experience it's always been more hassle than it's worth.
That's all set to change when the BlackBerry Passport hits the scene running BlackBerry 10.3. It's very early days on whether the BlackBerry Assistant will give the likes of Siri, Google Now and Cortana, for Windows Phone, a run for their money and even if it is as productive - is it a feature that you will use on a regular basis?
As BlackBerry fanatics we are used to using our hands (normally two thumbs) to get stuff done. I'm wondering how easy it will be for us to make the transition from keyboard searching to voice searching routinely, as long as the BlackBerry Assistant is up to the job?
Are you excited for the new feature and can you see yourself using it rather than hitting up your keyboard? Let us know your thoughts in the following poll?
Interesting times are on the BlackBerry horizon.
