BlackBerry OS to support tabbed browsingby monali
We finally got our hands on the new OS 5.0 beta and noticed that it has a unique tab browsing feature, unlike any other OS 5.0 beta released before. RIM has been trying to perfect this technology since 2007 and have finally made a minor break through. Getting to the tab is not so difficult, simply go to the ‘Menu’,select ‘Tabs’ and then select ‘New Tab’. Compared to the easiness of creating a tab, switching between these tabs is rather difficult as there are no keyboard shortcuts. BlackBerry is known for its user friendliness and optimized usability. This introduction of tabs is very likely to slow down its users. Before OS 5.0 makes its official debut, we hope that BlackBerry sorts this out and introduces some shortcuts to optimize this tab function.
