An article detailing the new features of the new BlackBerry OS 6.0.
The BlackBerry OS 6.0 has been revealed to the public with details and screenshots, and it certainly sports a fluid and snazzy interface, system-wide multi-touch gesture support, an enhanced homescreen, and a new music player and WebKit browser.
Interface - new features:
Pop-up options or modal context meny (up to 9 options)
Enhanced Messaging GUI

These features and screenshots look great, but so far, no proper release date has been set, or a list of compatible/new devices published. We do know that it will be around June/July, and further information will come at the BlackBerry WES 2010 at the end of April.
