Our good friends over at MMMOOO have translated the BlackBerry OS 6 video walkthrough by BerryTimes.cn. What’s interesting is that at 03:55, the guys reviewing OS 6 say the browser is “terrible”. This is really disconcerting as the browser is a central feature to OS 6 and something the community has been excited about for some time. They also call the camera “terrible” which isn’t great considering the new camera is 5MP. They don’t go into much detail about why, but say they’ll address it later. Something the BlackBerry camera needs is more responsiveness, and hopefully this will be addressed in 6.
The Twitter integration with OS 6 is really interesting. At 07:29, they show how you can send song info to Twitter for BlackBerry. The search is also improved, allowing you to search globally on device, the internet or even on YouTube (official YouTube client on the way).
Be sure to read the rest of this article after the jump because we’ve got a time-stamped translation of the video. I suggest opening the translation and video side-by-side so you can watch and read at the same time.
00:26 Okay! Let’s have a look at the interface of OS 6 first.
00:30 The first highlight is the new framework.
00:34 Time! Battery! Singal, I insert a SIM card.

16:00 Okay. That’s all. I hope it can be more stable when finally released.
16:40 See you next time!
