BlackBerry woos rival users with in-browser demo


Blackberry has launched a new tool that lets iPhone and Android users test its new mobile operating system, as the former smartphone leader looks to reclaim market share from its rivals.


The in-browser demo, which uses HTML5, has been designed to mimic the user experience of the BB10 operating system.

The demo gives users the chance to try out the interface, predictive keyboard, BlackBerry Messenger, BlackBerry Hub, and other programs inside BB 10.

The Canadian smartphone maker introduced the BB10 OS in January and recently released its first BB10-powered device -- the Z10.

The demo is available below, and is compatible with any iOS device running 5.0 or late. Android users with Gingerbread or higher can also see the demo on their phones.
