Not too long ago we saw the release of BlackBerry OS 10.2.0, but within the next month we will see BlackBerry OS 10.2.1 launching on several networks, including O2.
BlackBerry have been quick to release OS updates for their BlackBerry 10 devices, since launch, back in January of 2013. We have seen the release of OS 10.1 and the biggest update, since launch, OS 10.2 – which came packing a load of new and improved features for the BlackBerry 10 platform. However, within the next month, BlackBerry will be releasing their latest OS – BlackBerry OS 10.2.1 – to the public through an over-the-air update.
BlackBerry OS 10.2.1 will come with even more features, than the current 10.2 OS has as we have recently learned that BlackBerry is already beta testing a new BBM release, for BlackBerry OS 10.2.1, but only to a select few beta testers and is therefore not open to all of the beta testers in the BlackBerry beta zone. The new BBM will come with improved ease of access, including being able to record a voice note without having to invoke another application – which means you can now record the voice note directly within BBM, only on BlackBerry OS 10.2.1!
The latest OS was confirmed to be launching on the O2 UK network, to us, by an O2 representative,
I have checked, and I can confirm that BlackBerry OS 10.2.1 will be releasing on the O2 network in January. However, BlackBerry haven’t officially announced an exact date in January yet. Once OS 10.2.1 is released, you will get a notification on your BlackBerry about the software update.
Are you excited for the release of BlackBerry 10.2.1? Also, do not forget that this is one of the most important updates, to the BlackBerry 10 platform, as it allows you to directly install Android applications and games on your BlackBerry 10 device without the need of a computer!
Michael Clewley, Product Manager at BlackBerry, had this to say on BlackBerry OS 10.2.1,
This release has been focused on making BB10 better, cleaning up the user experience and removing the think points. It’s been focused on removing your detractors and eliminating return drivers. Some things needed change.
BlackBerry OS 10.2.1 improves upon many different elements of the BlackBerry 10 platform and is therefore an update to watch out for! Are you excited for the release of this latest OS, for the BlackBerry 10 platform, in January?
