Media functionality of BlackBerry OS 6.0 revealed

Details about the multimedia capabilities of version 6.0 of the BlackBerry operating system (OS) have been made public.

Research in Motion (RIM) has added a synchronisation tool to make the navigation and cataloguing of media files far simpler.

During video playback, users will be able to view files in a number of different ways, from full screen to original format.

The new OS will allow users to upload their video clips directly to YouTube and although it only supports HTML5 for the time being, RIM has confirmed that Flash support is being developed.

RIM has streamlined the camera capabilities of the new OS, with the menu system simplified to make changing the shooting style less of a hassle.

Podcasts will become a big part of BlackBerry OS 6.0, with a dedicated search capability that will allow users to seek out their favourite publications in audio or video form.

RIM has yet to confirm an official release date for the new OS, but it should be with users later in 2010.
