BlackBerry 10 Hub: Managing all Your Conversations in a Single Place
With the BlackBerry Hub, you can manage all your conversations in a single place. Whether it’s email, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, or even BlackBerry Messenger (BBM), everything’s available to you with a single gesture.
Here are some similarities and differences compared to the unified inbox technology offered on current BlackBerry devices.
- Unified Inbox versus BlackBerry Hub: Similarities – If you are currently using your device’s unified inbox as your base of operations on BlackBerry OS 6 devices and up, I have great news: BlackBerry Hub is still the messaging and communications centre for new BlackBerry 10 smartphones, and it’s available in real time.
- Unified Inbox versus BlackBerry Hub: Differences – When Thorsten Heins said “BlackBerry Hub is not just a unified inbox,” he wasn’t kidding. By using BlackBerry Flow to layer open emails, attachments, or BlackBerry apps over the top of the Hub, you can quickly “peek” back as needed to view all the apps you’re currently using. It’s as much about the accessibility of your data as it is the integration of your data.
The bottom line is that unified inbox works, and works well. However, the goal of BlackBerry 10 is to help keep BlackBerry smartphone users moving forward.
