BlackBerry 10.1 OS update available to Z10 owners


Everybody knew it was coming but this time it's official. At the BlackBerry Live 2013 annual conference today, BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins announced the official availability of the BlackBerry 10.1 update to the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone.

If you're interested to know some of the most important improvements it brings then here they are:

  • Instant Actions - a set of predefined and expandable “action" shortcuts within the Universal Search interface
  • Keyboard Shortcuts - the Q10 shortcuts will work on the Z10's virtual keyboard
  • PIN to PIN messages for direct communication between BlackBerry smartphones
  • Customizable notifications - you can tune the ringtone, vibration and LED response for the different accounts or contacts
  • Finer cursor control - it's easier to place teh cursor exactly where it's needed
  • High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode in the camera
  • Landscape orientation support in the calendar
  • Click to call any phone number mentioned in an email or message

Still one of the most important parts of this update is the ability to use Skype in your own Blackberry Z10, something that all users have been waiting impatiently for. According to the official announcement, the update will begin rolling on gradually this week.
