Hands On With – The Finer Points

By August 26, 2014BlackBerry

Loaded up the 10.3 OS on the Z30 although it’s hardly the 10.3.1 device optimized OS expected to hit in market devices later this year, it’s always nice to take a peek at the progress BlackBerry is making with their mobile platform built atop the rock solid QNX. The video glazes over some pro-tips for users on 10.3 and touches on the UI changes, increases Android support, BlackBerry assistant and refined user interface.

Enjoy the under 15min look at some of what this OS will be able to offer –

    So well done James. Extremely professional.

  • Rohit

    I would like to see the hide options for the file in file manager as we found in BB OS 7.1

    • I would LOVE this feature back as well. Folders are endless on 10.3+ but being able to hide items would be a great addition.

  • Bryan

    Only problem I found with the 10.3 OS currently is my lock screen time and date is shifted to the left slightly so it’s not centered. Must be due to it not being optimized for the Z30 yet ):

    Nice video. 10.3 will be a marked improvement over 10.2.1.

    Voice assistant looks good. People use it when it’s good.

    When listening to the radio, can the user output to a bluetooth speaker? I can’t do that in 10.2.1, the radio only plays from the device speakers.

    • James Nieves

      I will look into this for you.

  • Hardays

    This is so AWESOME! I didn’t even know the active frames could be moved around. I love how android apps now load so fast.

    Can’t wait for the Full Version.

  • Lloyd Naylor

    How do you enable the radio on the Z30?

    • jay

      Plug your ear buds. That’s it.

    • Anthony

      Connect your earphones (or some other wire), then choose the radio tab in the Music app, then scan for stations.
