    Details

    This article profiles the main changes to BlackBerry Device Software 4.3.
    SureType® Enhancements
    Word Completion
    As BlackBerry smartphone users type, a list of word options is displayed when the BlackBerry smartphone user pauses. The vertical list consists of word selections that are the closest match to the word the BlackBerry smartphone user is trying to type. The BlackBerry smartphone user may then select the word.
    Advanced Editing
    BlackBerry smartphone users may now scroll to a word they want to correct and move between specific letters by rolling the trackball up or down to flip between letters.
    Improved Frequency Learning
    Commonly used words are recognized with greater consistency.
    Wireless BlackBerry Device Software Upgrades
    BlackBerry smartphone users can wirelessly upgrade their BlackBerry smartphone.
    Voice Notes
    BlackBerry smartphone users can record voice notes using the Voice Notes feature. Voice notes can be sent using the following:
    • Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) messages
    • email messages
    • personal identification number (PIN)
    • instant messaging
    The BlackBerry smartphone user may also store the recorded voice note locally for playback at a later time. For more information on Voice Notes, see KB05452.
    Note: BlackBerry Messenger supports this feature with BlackBerry Device software 4.2.1.
    Selectable Phone Equalizer
    Adjust the audio to best suit the BlackBerry smartphone user listening preference. Listening preferences include:
    • Normal
    • Boost Bass
    • Boost Treble
    For instructions on improving phone call quality, see KB14258.
    Enhanced Voice IT Policy Controls
    IT Policies may be used to manage voice usage. A whitelist (always allow) and blacklist (never allow) of phone numbers can be created.
    • Ability to Allow Ability to Control International Calls - allow or deny international calls received to the BlackBerry smartphone.
    • Ability to Allow or Deny by Area Code and Single Numbers - create Allow or Deny calling lists by area code and single numbers.
    BlackBerry® Maps Enhancements
    Points of Interest
    Using the Local Search menu option, search for local businesses and landmarks within a 30 kilometer radius of the current location. For instructions, see KB14271.
    Route Saving
    Routes from one location to another may be saved for later viewing. For instructions, see KB05451.
    Multimedia Enhancements
    Send and receive video files using MMS
    Attach video files to MMS messages, and play video files received using MMS. For more information, see KB14268.
    3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) Progressive download
    Allows streaming and playback of media from web sites on the BlackBerry smartphone using the browser.
    3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) Progressive download
    Allows streaming and playback of media from web sites on Wi-Fi® enabled BlackBerry smartphones.
    Music playlist support in the Media application
    Create and edit playlists (in .m3u format) directly in the Media application on the BlackBerry smartphone.
    Video recording
    BlackBerry smartphone users can record video using the Camera by selecting the Video Camera icon. The following options may be selected to control settings:
    • Video light - brightens dark environments to improve video recording
    • White balance - control white balance of the camera; options include Automatic, Indoor, and Sunny
    • Video format - use normal mode (240X180) or lower quality MMS mode (176X144)
    • Store videos - decide where to save video files
    Browser Enhancements
    The start page accommodates easier navigation and displays the five most recently visited bookmarks. If the BlackBerry smartphone user clicks Bookmarks or History, they are redirected to a dedicated screen, respectively.
    BlackBerry Internet Service
    Synchronize the address book and calendar features of integrated email accounts (for example, Yahoo!® Mail address book and calendar) with the Address Book and Calendar on the BlackBerry smartphone.
    This feature requires BlackBerry® Internet Service 2.4.

    Re: New BlackBerry Device Software 4.3 features

    Wow that clears a lot of questions, nice find audit!
    There is one thing I didnt see however, is there a list of supported bb models as far as the streaming video is concerned?
    I would be really dissapointed if my 8820 wasnt supported..

    Based on what I'm hearing, the 83xx will get 4.3 and same with the 88xx. Somethings could change but that's the last I've heard.

    Correct. I believe the 87xx as well if memory serves me. Apparently that will be the last OS upgrade for 87xx series. 83xx still has bugs being worked out due to memory leak. Hopefully it will be corrected soon!

    With all this out, I would have to assume the actuall availability of 4.3 for Curves and whatever phones it will work on shouldn't be too long from now. :-)
