Leaked BlackBerry 10 Screenshot Shows Siri Like Voice Recognition Assistant


With less than ten days before RIM is set to officially hold the BlackBerry 10 launch event, BGR has obtained a handful of leaked screenshots of the BlackBerry 10 operating system running on a BlackBerry Z10 handset. As we reported back in July 2012 that BlackBerry 10 is expected to introduce a Siri-like functionality, one of the leaked screenshots further hints that a voice recognition assistant is indeed coming to the platform (see below).

The screenshot clearly shows that users can initiate phone calls, send emails, BBM and text messages as well as search the internet or their BlackBerry device by using voice commands much like Siri in iOS. Of course we’ll have to wait for the official launch event to be sure, which will take place in New York City on January 30th where RIM will formally announce the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry X10 smartphones running the all new BlackBerry 10 OS.

Meanwhile, we have embedded below a hands on video comparing the iPhone 5 with BlackBerry z10 smartphone. Take a look and share your thoughts with us in the comments section.

    Sooo…should RIM be preparing to get sued by Apple?

    Well I had a rep from Blackberry come into my place of employment (because we have a Wireless Wave kiosk there and he was demonstrating it to them) and I got to put my hands on a beta version of the handset (or a name along those lines). It didn’t have the top faceplate but it felt quite solid in it’s build quality and the multi-tasking ability (don’t have to open one app & close another app) was a better user experience then Apple’s OS experience. I have to say I think RIM may (MAY) be able to get up off the canvas with this OS and at the very least stay in the game. I liked the functionality of the phone, I hope others give it a test try and come to the same conclusion as I did. I’d buy one of these the minute you can purchase them outright and don’t need to be on contract to get one.

    Yo, was that Arnold Schwarzenegger in the video? Or worse, the CEO himself (Thornston Heins). Those hands are HUGE.

    He makes the iPhone look like like a garage opener in his hands.

    That aside, I’m kind of excited about this phone even with my i5 being just two months old now. If the price point is right and it provides flash support like the Playbook, I might have to sell the iPhone and grab one.
