BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.2 will be available now in Europe, Canada, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific, with other countries to follow.

The OS update will be available for BlackBerry Z10, BlackBerry Q10 and BlackBerry Q5 smartphones.

BlackBerry OS 10.2 new features:

Priority Hub automatically puts important messages at the top of your inbox, helping you to stay focused on the most important items. The new attachment view helps you find files and documents across your messaging accounts and within specific message threads.

BBM Video with Natural Sound enables users to benefit from more natural and realistic BBM Video and Voice conversations between BlackBerry 10 smartphones.

Email, BBM and SMS message previews now appear in any app – you can even respond to your BBM or SMS messages in any app, or go to the BlackBerry Hub with a single swipe to respond to your email.

BlackBerry Keyboard features personalized next word suggestion, auto-correction, and distinctive BlackBerry keyboard layout.

New apps coming soon on BlackBerry 10

On the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Z30, there is improved audio feedback with distinct tones for specific keys like backspace and shift help you type more confidently because you’ll have more reassurance you’ve hit the right key.

BlackBerry 10.2 gives you more cursor control and text selection is now easier. Once you select text, a pop-up menu gives you editing options and direct sharing with BBM, Facebook and Twitter – so you can quickly copy, paste and share.

BlackBerry 10.2 learns how you share and who you share with, helping you reduce the number of steps and amount of time it takes to get your files, photos, or documents to where they need to go.

When the red light on your BlackBerry 10 smartphone starts blinking, you don’t have to unlock the phone to see your message. Take a peek at the latest email, text, BBM, or notification right from the lock screen to see if that’s the message you’ve been waiting for or one that can wait a while.

You can customize which accounts appear on the lock screen and scroll over the icons to display the sender and subject line.

Reply Now lets you respond to incoming phone calls, even when it’s not a good time to answer the phone. Easily send a response through BBM, SMS or email – choose from a list of standard automated responses or respond with a personalized note.

BlackBerry Calendar now comes with an ‘I’m running late’ function so you can instantly let meeting participants know if you’ll be late. You can even specify a new time in your notification. A redesigned interface makes adding an event easier, so managing your time is simpler.
