					   The 10 Features RIM Needs to Have on
         BlackBerry 10 (Part One)
By Francis T.




We know that we are all excited for the coming of the Blackberry 10. BerryThumbs all
over the world have been raving for BB10 since Research In Motion (RIM) was
reported to be looking forward to launching new BlackBerry devices carrying BB 10
OS later this year. Despite the fan rave however, critics believe that RIM smartphones
may need a lot of changes to be successful this year, especially since it has been known
that the company has been on the rocks lately.


With the BlackBerry World 2012 promising to have BB10 prototypes, people still have
no idea what to expect of RIM’s new babies. But analysts and critics are seriously hoping
that RIM would consider the following factors in their new line of BB smartphones
before their customers start selling used Blackberry smartphones.
1. Sharper Designs. Analysts from CNET believe that one of Apple’s key secrets to
   success is the iPhone’s style. This also shows in most of their devices. In order for
   BlackBerry 10 to be successful, critics believe that RIM should not only be functional
   but also fashionable. While RIM needs to stick with its image of sleek, black phones,
   it also needs to know that the buyers of today like showing their gadgets off. To make
   users stop selling used BlackBerry phones, RIM may have to look into their
   smartphone’s aesthetics.


2. Big and Better Displays. As we all know, RIM has historically produced the odd
   decision to design smartphones that come with little displays. The BlackBerry Torch
   and Storm2 are the only exceptions to that rule. While this tactic proves okay for
   BlackBerry users (since they don’t have to worry much about scratching a big LCD
   screen), bigger screens are coming up in the market and are proving to sell like
   hotcakes. With BlackBerry 10 devices, analysts think RIM should forgo the past and
   deliver devices with massive displays by opting for 4.3-inch screens at least.


3. Physical and Touch Type Keyboards. Here’s another thing that analysts believe
   RIM should do: Scrap the physical keyboard and just go for touch and type. This is
   because they believe the physical keyboard is really a major concern for buyers and
   enterprise users that are looking to buy new gadgets. Longtime BlackBerry users
   begged to disagree because of two things. First, the BlackBerry logo derived its line
   name from its keyboard that looked like fruit seeds. Losing it would basically scrap its
   identity. Second, the majority of the BlackBerry users love the fact that they can type
   easily on their BBs because of the clicky QWERTY keyboard that is well spaced and
   better to the touch. We think it’s best for RIM to just let their physical and non-
   physical keyboard phones co-exist peacefully.


4. Better OS. Some tech analysts believe that RIM’s BlackBerry OS is less responsive
   than the iOS while some think that the BB OS is better than iPhone’s. As far as
   software is concerned, we think that RIM’s platform is very much different from the
   iPhone platform which is why it becomes pointless to pit them against each other.
   However, RIM must realize that their OS should not only focus on catering to their
   enterprise clienteles, but also to individual consumers.


5. More App Developers. Certainly one of the biggest troubles with RIM’s
   BlackBerry OS that makes people start selling used BlackBerry is the fact that it lacks
   a sufficient developer help. For now, third-party vendors are content to develop apps
   for Android and Apple iOS and leave BlackBerry OS out. If RIM wants to break
   through that, it must sign up for more app developers for BB10.
