RIM Unveils Latest OS 6 Teaser

Well Storm users, it only took a few years for BlackBerry to realize OS 5 isn’t really suited for a touchscreen interface and start rebuilding. We’ll most likely see a few more touchscreen-enabled Berries hit shelves alongside OS 6, but RIM’s keeping pretty quiet on the hardware front for now. Instead, we’ve got another look at the new interface, browser and universal search bar.

The video mostly concentrates on the social applications of the phone. Evidently, RIM thinks its plethora of corporate users mainly Tweet and text about how “kick-tastic” the latest action flick was. However, it does offer some unique insight into some new functionality for the operating system including a new universal search feature and the new Web-kit based browser that we’ve all been clamoring for.

Check out the video below and let us know what you think! How many of you are looking forward to the operating system refresh or have you already jumped ship?
