Have you ever wondered how come most of the spy shots that we see of upcoming devices tend to be blurry in nature? Could it be because the window of opportunity to shoot that money shot is so small, that one cannot help but have shaking hands while he or she is at it? Well, RIM, a company that is more or less betting the farm on the BlackBerry 10 operating system at the end of this month in New York City, is involved in a new and recently released patent that has been described as this, “the camera restriction prevents a user from taking a picture of a subject if the device has not been steadily focused on the subject in question for a predetermined period of time.”

Depending on the amount of time you require to ensure that your BlackBerry remains still could be dictated by different sections of the IT department, and the person or department in charge would also be able to flip the switch and send restrictions to an employee’s device right there and then. This delay would definitely reduce the occurrences of spy shots as well, as a really long delay like a minute would leave no room open for someone on a stealth mission. I guess this means you just need not bring your BlackBerry to the assembly line…
