The long-term vision for BlackBerry 10 is said to be beyond a simple mobile operating system. BlackBerry 10 is built on the kernel of the successfully proven, real-time operating system of QNX.
BlackBerry wants to position the BlackBerry 10 operating system as a key player in mobile computing. The company’s vision is that of a laptop and tablet-less era where users use one device wherever they travel.
BlackBerry 10 has the power to appropriately scale to various screen resolutions. The idea is that a BlackBerry 10 mobile device could be connected to a monitor and the experience changes, effectively giving a desktop experience.
This idea has been realized in a new video using USB host on a BlackBerry Z30. This video demonstration of Mobile Computing is in the work environment.
One user is working while listening to music, receive notifications for BlackBerry Messenger, and responds without leaving the text editor. Another users goes to colleagues’ table with a USB to review a presentation. The user corrects an error and re-saves on USB memory plus uploads to Box (storage service in the cloud).
Check out the video below and let us know what you think of BlackBerry 10’s future as a mobile computing platform.
