With the start of new year, Team BlackBerry has introduced BlackBerry 7.1 OS. BlackBerry 7.1 OS is built to discover new things, and sharing these new things with friends, family and colleagues. Now it has become much easier than before and it will take your BlackBerry experience to next level.
BlackBerry 7.1 OS come up with some great new features. Below are some highlights:
- Mobile Hotspot:
Turn your BlackBerry 7.1 OS device into a Wi-Fi router anywhere, anytime. The new OS seamlessly provides Internet access for up to five Wi-Fi devices, including laptops and tablets.
- Universal Search
For this new release, we wanted to focus on the intelligence of our system and our apps, in other words, we wanted to create an intuitive experience that does the thinking for you. For example, Universal Search now has a new auto-suggest feature that that intelligently filters Bing search results to offer you a variety of relevant Web sites based on your search terms.
- BlackBerry Tag
Share contacts, media and files, and even invite friends to BlackBerry® Messenger (BBM) through a simple touch. BlackBerry Tag unlocks near field communication (NFC) capabilities for everyday use and makes sharing a lot faster and much more personal.
- Wi-Fi Calling
With BlackBerry 7.1 OS, you’ll be able to make Wi-Fi calls using your carrier’s Wi-Fi calling service (aka UMA-lite or GAN-lite). Wi-Fi calling allows you to save your talk time minutes and make phone calls over any Wi-Fi network. Not all carriers offer such a service so check with your carrier for availability.
- FM Radio
The BlackBerry 7.1 OS update will let BlackBerry Curve 9360 and 9380 smartphone customers enjoy FM radio. The Curve models include a built-in FM radio so you can tune in to local FM radio stations. Simply plug in your headset to boost the reception (it acts as the antenna). Plus, no data usage or data plan required.
- BlackBerry Maps
When you launch the new BlackBerry Maps you’ll be able to discover special offers, coupons and discounts from nearby vendors and, of course, you can act instantly by calling about the deal, finding the best route to get there, or grabbing the coupon code.
We hope that these smart applications with BlackBerry 7.1 OS update will help you connect with your fellows and friends having BlackBerry Smartphones more efficiently. Keep checking our posts for further updates.
