What’s new: It’s not only the phone lead­ers who are com­ing up with rev­o­lu­tion­ary up-

grades. Re­search-in-mo­tion has also come up with the Black­berry OS 7 that looks and feels com-

pletely dif­fer­ent from the ear­lier ones. it is all set to of­fer the smoothest and fastest BB ex­pe­ri­ence ever,

in­clud­ing colours. The liq­uid graph­ics gives the OS a fresh look. The new browser on­board is pow­er­ful with

and pro­vides a 40 per cent faster page load and sup­ports seam­less pan­ning, zoom­ing and scrolling. Near-field

from the BB sta­ble are Nfc-en­abled. Fi­nally, RIM has fo­cused on mul­ti­me­dia and the phones on the new OS can

cap­ture videos at 720P res­o­lu­tion. As for net­work­ing, the new OS has the BBM6 mes­sen­ger. So­cial Feeds 2.0 can

smart­phones and tablets. Although, OS 7 users won’t be able to up­grade to the BBX, RIM doesn’t plan to

aban­don the OS 7 users. So watch this space for more.
