A CDE Definition
A feature of the BlackBerry 10 smartphone that enables users to "peek" into the notifications hub no matter what app they are in and go back with a single swipe. See BlackBerry 10.
The current generation of the BlackBerry operating system. Introduced in 2013 and based on QNX, BlackBerry 10 is a dramatic departure from previous models. The Z10 was all touchscreen, while the Q10 included a physical keyboard. A Z30 phablet later debuted (see below).
The BlackBerry Hub
BlackBerry 10 (BB10) offers all the functionality of modern smartphones along with unique features. For example, a unified notifications hub can be accessed at any time. Users can "peek" in for a quick glance at their mail and messages and return smoothly to where they left off. To change activities, users can move from one function to another without having to go in and out of apps.
Originating in the corporate world, personal and enterprise activities are separated (see BlackBerry Balance). BB10 models also feature a camera with Time Shift, which takes multiple images so the best one can be chosen. See BlackBerry, QNX, mobile compatibility and mobile device vendor control.
