Listen 6 Advantages Compared Android and Blackberry
# BlackBerry fast and stable. But sometimes there is phone-hang that requires you to remove the battery from its compartment and the most annoying is the process of re-boot: 3-8 minutes!
# Android is very fast. No complaints about the phone-hang that requires batteries out of place, unless you want to change the SIM card. The process is rapid re-boot.
# BlackBerry: BB battery life is incredible. Yes, it is fair because BB is not much to process various applications such as Android.
# Android: quite wasteful, but sometimes can be up to one day. But it must be remembered that Android phones use batteries for a LOT of things. For example, if you use an Android phone to brwosing web or watching video up to 1 hour, of course it requires more battery power. And, the BlackBerry can do the same thing for it?
# Blackberry: email on BB is a mainstay of RIM. Gmail on the BB has also optimized its function, but of course not as good on Android.
# Android: What made you doubt from Gmail that run on Google’s Android which is also made by Google?
3. User Interface (UI)
# Blackberry: boring, done.
# Android: you will not even feel tired to explore every corner of the Android phone. Guaranteed.
2. Web Browsing
# Blackberry: very tiring, you have to admit it.
# Android: Android is where the advantage lies. Android became the winner when compared to all the mobile OS. When comparing web browsing on Android with a BlackBerry, like day and night only. Much different.
# Blackberry: BlackBerry does have a myriad of applications, but at the same time the iPhone is also the far left BlackBerry. So it is better to see what can be done to catch up ketertingalannya BlackBerry behind the iPhone OS and Android.
# Android: A growing number of applications that were once only in iOS, there are now versions of its Android. Android is a real competitor of the iPhone, not BlackBerry
As the new operating system, BlackBerry 10 certainly promises to improve the ability of the various sides. Well, one that attracts attention is the innovation of the BlackBerry camera application 10.
In a demonstration that took place at the opening of the BlackBerry World 2012, held in Orlando, U.S., RIM executives successfully made the audience amazed.
How to edit the photo shown BlackBerry 10 is to produce something fresh. How not? The camera application has the capability tub time machine.
The point is this, when you have taken a picture taken of momentum and it is not as expected, for example, eyes are turning a blind eye object. So with the BlackBerry 10 feature, user is able to rotate the time of the object and record it when he was smiling.
CEO of Research In Motion (RIM) Thorsten Heins calls this feature as a continuous autofocus. This feature has the ability to repeat as the moment and fix ‘disability’ in the photo, so photos will always look perfect.
For example, as shown in the demo when a photograph of two men at first glance seems perfect. But after carefully observed, the images look less okay because one of the photos appear blinking.
Feature on the camera allows the user to scroll forward or backward a frame (forward-backward) to find a good moment. For more details, please watch the video below.
Blackberry Changes The Face Of Mobile For Business
For a while now, BlackBerry has made traditional looking business phones. However, the company has updated their mobile phones to now offer those having touchscreens. The first BlackBerry device to boast this feature will be the BlackBerry Curve Touch. This newest model will be different than previous models because it will not have a full QWERTY keyboard. This has long been a signature of BlackBerry mobile phones. However, with the new touchscreen this keyboard is not longer needed.
The overall size of the touchscreen found on the Curve will be somewhat smaller than other touchscreen devices. Part of the company’s decision to do this was to make the Curve more affordable to more people. Currently, the touchscreen is expected to measure 3.25 inches with a resolution of 480 by 360.
Every smartphone comes with some sort of operating system. The operating system featured on the BlackBerry Curve Touch is of course the BlackBerry operating system. However, it is the newest version which is OS 7. Even though the Curve touch now features different technology with the inclusion of a touchscreen, it still comes with other features that are part of BlackBerry smartphones. For instance, users of the Curve Touch would still be eligible to access apps found in the BlackBerry App World.
Many features have been included in the design of the BlackBerry Curve Touch. For instance, the camera comes with a 5 megapixel camera and a built in 1 GB flash. The camera is not exclusively for taking still images but can also handle videos as well.
Currently, the BlackBerry Curve Touch has not been released. However, its release is expected to occur later this year or early in 2012. This should create a lot of excitement in the world of mobile phones and provide some competition for other producers of touch screen devices; check out Dialaphone to find out more on this exciting development in tech.
BlackBerry PlayBook 2.0 Android support
Summary: The PlayBook’s Android Player in the 2.0 developer release is functional, but it still needs a bit of work and applications will have to be adapted to run smoothly.
Last week, Research in Motion released the PlayBook 2.0 Developer Preview, which is primarily targeted towards software developers looking to test their pre-baked Android applications on the new Android Player.
While PlayBook 2.0 is considerably behind schedule — as the Developer Preview does not contain the much-desired native email and calendaring support and is not expected to be released to the public until sometime in February, RIM has made a great deal of progress in terms of improving overall performance and usability of the Android support in the QNX Tablet OS than from previous versions leaked unofficially on the Internet.
Once a PlayBook is registered with its unique PIN on the RIM developer site, the tablet is sent an over-the-air update that includes the new Android Player support. The new PlayBook 2.0 improvements are primarily skin-deep, although there are some minor aesthetic differences.
Eventually, Android applications will be installable from the BlackBerry App World just like any regular PlayBook application, whether it is native QNX, Adobe Air 3.0 or WebWorks-based.
But for the time being, developers have to “side-load” re-packaged Android applications in PlayBook-compatible format, called .BAR files. BAR files are unique to the BlackBerry App World and are parsed differently than the APK format used by native Android devices.
Side-loading of BAR files requires the installation of the Adobe AIR SDK as well as the BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK for Adobe AIR, enabling developer mode on the tablet, and uploading the files via a USB connection using command-line tools.
Research in Motion has provided a web-based tool to re-package Android files into BAR for submission to the new BlackBerry App World, which includes a Java application to help test for compatibility.
If the requirements haven’t scared you off — as well as having to run a fairly unstable environment on your PlayBook, the good folks at CrackBerry.com have begun to maintain a Google Docs spreadsheet of where you can download some pre-packaged BAR files for testing and what Android apps do and do not work yet.
It should be noted that not every Android application is expected to work on the Player. Android NDK apps that use C and C++ libraries will not function — only apps that are written specifically to the Android Gingerbread 2.3.x implementation of the Dalvik VM will run.
And because the Player has to emulate a native Android handset’s hardware buttons through software touch gestures, it’s possible some optimization of these existing applications will be required.
Other limitations of the Player, which otherwise behaves exactly like a vanilla install Android 2.3.3, include no support for Account Synchronization settings, so apps like GMail or Google Calendar will not work.
However, I was able to find several 3rd-party email clients that were able to replace GMail, such as Kaiten and K-9, both of which are excellent programs.
Additionally, RIM has enabled a security mode that disables support for APK application side-loading, obviously so that their own BlackBerry App Store monetization cannot be bypassed by say, Amazon or even Google.
However, even with these limitations, a large library of Android apps should become available soon for the PlayBook, and overall that is a good thing. Overall I was extremely impressed with the Android application performance, especially for multimedia-intensive apps.
