RIM unveiled its BlackBerry 7 OS at its annual BlackBerry World conference in May. The revamped mobile OS promises easier navigation through its Liquid Graphics interface, as well as faster, richer graphics performance and browsing. The latter is enabled by a revamped BlackBerry browser that includes a just-in-time JavaScript compiler and HTML 5 video support.

BlackBerry 7 OS also brings support for new technologies, including NFC (near-field communications) and augmented reality applications. Voice-enabled search and 720p HD video recording also make their debut on the new OS.
