Announcing BlackBerry® 10.1 OS

[ Edited ]

Product Overview


BlackBerry® 10.1 OS builds on the features and functionality found on the BlackBerry® Z10 smartphone.

Software Support: BlackBerry® Link.



  • Corporate Liable
  • BlackBerry Balance
  • Cross Domain Email Warnings
  • Out-of-Box Experience Software Support
  • Smartcard Support
  • Mnemonic Phone Dialing


Corporate Liable

The Corporate Liable feature adds additional security in highly regulated and secure corporate environments by implementing a single Work space on the BlackBerry 10 smartphone.


BlackBerry Balance

Summary of changes:

• Work and Personal accounts are now separated in BlackBerry® Hub

• You can disable access to the Work space using USB by IT Policy

• An IT Policy restricts an application in the Work space from reading data in the Personal space


Cross Domain Email Warnings

Cross Domain Email Warnings occur when you compose an email message involving recipients that reside in different Internet domains. For example, if all current contacts are part of one domain, for example, me@blackberry.com and a contact from a separate domain is added, for example, contact@competition.com, a warning message will appear alerting the user that a contact outside of the first domain will receive the message.


Out-of-Box Experience Software Updates

Configuration and software updates now occur in the background as opposed to a visible task or step in the original release of BlackBerry 10.


Customers may note a difference in the behavior of the OOBE and may wonder when or if the updates occur.


Smartcard Support

BlackBerry 10.1 will support BlackBerry® Smart Card Reader 2.0. Previous versions of the BlackBerry® Smart Card Reader are not supported.


Mnemonic Phone Dialing

On previous versions of BlackBerry smartphones, users could dial phone numbers by name or number. This functionality is included into BlackBerry 10.1. In the Phone app, simply start typing the name or number of the contact, and then tap the contact.
