2. "Time Machine" Camera Software

You are taking a picture of your friend with a beautiful smile and good lighting, but her eyelids are closed. This frequently happen. What you usually do with this pictures? A lot of people will delete it.

With camera software in BB10, you do not need to delete the photo because you can return to the time when you took the picture to choose the best picture when your friends eyelids have not closed, even when you do not press the shutter button. Yes, this camera software is like time machine where you can return to the moment before you take a picture.

Most likely, BB10 camera software is recording images just before the shutter button is pressed.

3. Smart Virtual Keyboard

When BB10 virtual keyboard being used for typing, the keyboard will predict the next word that you type. The words referred to RIM as predictor of word suggestions, will appear at the top of the first letter of the word.
