Research in Motion (RIM) officially launched BlackBerry 10 at its BlackBerry World 2012 conference but did not provide a timeframe for its release. Unlike previous versions of the BlackBerry OS, which could only organize apps in rows of icons on the screen, BlackBerry 10 will offer a tiled interface that can displays information associated with an icon in real time. For example, a weather icon could display the temperature, wind speed and degree of cloudiness in the user's preferred geographical destination. BlackBerry 10 OS will also feature a touch keyboard and video calling between BlackBerry users.
