The update will introduce a bunch of new features to the platform, such as customized pinch gestures, a floating action bar, SMS and email groups, picture password, offline browser reading mode, and more. Oddly enough one of the more interesting features, which is the ability to directly download and install Android APKs, was not mentioned in the press release, although based on reports the functionality is still there. This saves users time from sideloading which might not be a technique known by the less tech savvy. This also allows BlackBerry users to install apps that might not be otherwise available for their phones. We expect the update, like most updates, to be rolled out in batches so fret not if you have not received yours yet.
