Updated: added more detail about BlackBery Flow

Research In Motion today revealed more specifics regarding its forthcoming BlackBerry 10 platform. Speaking at its BlackBerry Jam conference in San Jose, the company revealed two main concepts behind the new platform, which are called BlackBerry Hub and BlackBerry Flow. BlackBerry Hub serves as a main inbox -- or messaging hub -- where all communications are accessible, whether it be email, SMS, BBM, or social networking updates. The Hub is always running and can be accessed via specific on-screen gestures with a single finger. BlackBerry Flow is how the user interface and finger gestures combine so that users may interact with their device and switch from app to app seamlessly without requiring a home app screen. RIM also showed off how the new BlackBerry Messenger will work. It has received a visual overhaul that places greater emphasis on adding imagery (contact thumbnails, etc.) for a more immersive experience. RIM also showed off the new on-screen keyboard, which allows users to switch between languages quickly; as well as talked about BlackBerry Balance, which will further help BlackBerry users separate their work and personal information on the device. RIM is offering revised tools to developers today, and is updating the version of BB10 running on the developer alpha devices.
