Die-hard BlackBerry users will likely admit in unison that a new OS is long overdue. With iPhone, webOS, and Android dominating the internet browsing category, BlackBerry users have been feeling a bit left behind. If you like what you see in the picture above, then you'll be excited to hear about RIM's newest platform: OS 6.0.
The top-left picture shows the new icons and design changes, while the middle picture shows the new WebKit browser. With tab switching (see top-right picture), new favorites, and multitouch capabilities. According to BGR (who has seen the OS in action), multitouch is system-wide, along with kinetic scrolling and "rubberbanding" (when you scroll up too far and the menu snaps back into place). The home screen offers pages for organizing applications (see the little band above the icons with "all" highlighted), and the message inbox has been revamped.
All in all, it sounds like a great update. BGR's source is gunning for a June/July launch of OS 6.0, so there's a chance that it could be announced at WES 2010 next week. BlackBerry users, are these the updates you've been waiting for? Discuss!
