Blackberry 10 OS To Get Voice Command Feature

The BlackBerry mobile manufacturer Research In Motion (RIM) has recently discharged an update to their developers alpha devices for BlackBerry 10 OS. In the new build of Blackberry 10, one of the biggest features was the voice command feature with an operator whose voice sounds very similar to that of Apple’s Siri.

The new voice command for the Blackberry 10 can be accessed by pressing the voice command button that is placed between the two volume buttons in the developer alpha devices. The voice command has a limited functionality since it is still an early beta build, it is demonstrated by N4BB that it possess a universal search function besides just calling and sending text messages. Though, the update may not be ready to be used for the prime time yet it sounds very similar to Siri from Apple’s iPhone.

It is being speculated that the voice command technology has been powered by Nuance, it is same company that developed the Siri form for Apple.

The earlier reports stated that it was confirmed by RIM that BlackBerry 10 will include a video chat feature through its popular BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) service. This didn’t come as a surprise since a video chat feature has also been included in to the Blackberry Playbook and front facing cameras have been incorporated in to the Dev Alpha devices which are being handed out to developers. It is for the first time that RIM has affirmed that video chat feature will be available on BBM.

Much have been being expected from the upcoming BlackBerry 10. The developer tools for BlackBerry 10 have been released recently by RIM. It is very important to build a strong library of applications for the new BlackBerry OS to make it a huge success since its present library of applications is far smaller than the rival devices offered by Apple and Google. Most of the available applications of RIM are not compatible with the upcoming BlackBerry 10. RIM is trying hard to diminish its years of slowing sales, delayed and disappointing product launches and an uncomfortable worldwide outage of its prized network.

The enhancements to the developer tools help apps interrelate with each other, and make use of the BlackBerry network to push notifications to the devices. RIM has also opened App World in May enabling developers to use a check tool to share their work among themselves.

HTC One X And One S To Get Android 4.1 Update

In the global mobile market, HTC is one of the most reputed mobile manufacturing companies. The company till date has released a number of successful handsets enriched with various excellent features and modern applications. Recently the company has launched its two new handsets under the HTC One series- the One S and One X in to the market. HTC has also announced that there are plans on their part to update the One S and One X to Android 4.1 operating system.

Global Online Communications Manager Jeff Gordon of HTC did not say much about the update. He didn’t come openly to say that HTC’s most popular and most recent Android phones will be receiving the updated version of Android. He even didn’t any hope as to how long the phones would take to get the update or if any of their other mobile phones would receive the update.  It would be scary for the consumers to imagine the new HTC handsets without any Android update.  However, the obvious statement made by HTC has eased the mind of the people who were not sure.

One of the important things that was announced during the IO conference of Google, is the new Android Platform Development Kit, or PDK. This announcement was made specifically to help with keeping devices up to date. This particular kit was developed by Google in order to make it easier for the handsets manufacturer to update their devices with the latest version of Android in a regular manner. It has been considered by the consumers that only a few of Android 2.3.4 devices have been updated to Android 4.1. Thus it is the absolute time for PDK kit to come in to the arena to help the manufacturers to directly make the jump to 4.1. But so far very little can be known as how useful the PDK has been for the mobile manufacturer.

The most important reason to get the devices updated to Android 4.1 as soon as possible is the performance gains which were earned by the execution of Project Butter. Though HTC One X is considerably a faster device than the Samsung Galaxy Nexus but if we set both the handsets side by side for a performance comparison then it is completely embarrassing. The 4.1 powered Galaxy Nexus out-performs the 4.0 One X in almost every single way when navigating through the Google Apps. It is considered that if device like Galaxy Nexus is able to perform so well with 4.1 OS, then more powerful devices like the One X would perform much better if they get updated quickly.
