BlackBerry is giving Android and Apple users a sneak peek at what its new BlackBerry 10 (BB10) operating system can do -- right through their mobile browser.
BlackBerry wants to do more than just tell the world about BB10. It wants to
it why the new OS is comeback-worthy for the struggling company, and maybe convince a few iOS and Android users to switch along the way.
All iOS and Android users have to do is go to
and an interactive walkthrough of BB10 will appear.
It's not a free-for-all allowing users to poke through all the ins and outs of BB10, but rather a walkthrough of the features that requires a quick tap or swipe now and then. It shows off features like Screen Share, Time Shift, Hub and predictive keyboard.
BlackBerry may have had a rough year or so with a huge service blackout in 2011 and market share loss to Apple and Android ever since, but things are turning around for the BB10 maker.
It introduced the BB10 OS in January and recently released its first BB10-powered device --
revealed that many new BB10 devices will roll out this year, including tablets and phablets. So of course BlackBerry wants to show everyone why they should switch to the BB10 OS.
Just last week, BlackBerry reported
a surprise profit
for the fourth quarter of 2012.
BlackBerry reported an income of $94 million (18 cents per share).
Excluding some costs, adjusted income came in at $114 million (22 cents per share). This beat analyst expectations of losing 29 cents per share.

Back in the day I loved my blackberry... But it's too late... Android is the dominant force in the mobile universe.... And I'm heavily invested into it with apps and etc . for my phone (family phones and tablets and so on) ... So unless their willing to give a substantial credit in their app store, I can't see myself or other users whether their Android or iOS switching
