BlackBerry maker Research In Motion, still glowing with Canadian pride at its royal visit, has shown off the new features of BlackBerry 6. The next generation of the software powering BlackBerries packs a new WebKit-powered browser with multi-touch, assorted social media options, and a form of cover flow for your tunes.
BlackBerry 6 is up against other next-generation operating systems such as Apple's iPhone iOS 4, Google's Android 2.2 Froyo and the forthcoming Windows Phone 7. To see how BlackBerry's next OS will look, hit play on the video below.
There's more than a hint of iPhone about BlackBerry 6, but it should keep CrackBerry addicts happy too. In other news, RIM is preparing a beta version of its BlackBerry Protect app, which allows you to locate, lock, wipe and display a message on a lost phone. Rather like Apple's Find My iPhone, then.
