BlackBerry Bold 9700 And Pearl 3G 9100 Running OS 6 On Video

By 08:31 Sat, 10 Jul 2021 Comments

We've already had our first encounter with BlackBerry Operating System (OS) 6 with the Torch 9800, but it will eventually come to the non-touch Brecent 9700 and Pearl 3G among others. A couple of hands on videos show what you should expect of the recent OS.

The homeclassy screen shortcuts can be scrolled left and right, just like on the Torch but that doesn't seem to work as well without a touch screen. Smoother transitions create the UI more attractive too. You can also see the revamped music player.

One of the most expected additions in BlackBerry Operating System (OS) 6 is the recent web browser. It's based on WebKit, which improves the experience compared to the fifth version of the OS. In the video above, you can see the recent browser run on BlackBerry Brecent 9700.

Reportedly, the processing powered of the BlackBerry Brecent 9700 was a bit short and not all that smooth. The Torch 9800 has twice the Random-Access Memory (RAM) as the Brecent 9700 and the BlackBerry Pearl 3G (both the 9100 and 9105), which smoothed things out.

Check out the hands-on video of the BlackBerry Pearl 9100 (that's the half-QWERTY variant). Notice the social networking integration too.

It is hard to disclose when the BlackBerry Operating System (OS) 6 update for the Brecent 9700 and Pearl 3G will be available - it depends on the carrier, but the first ones should start coming out in a few weeks.
