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.
