RIM Bringing Built-In Photo Editing and Instagram-Like Filters to BlackBerry 10

BlackBerry doesn’t get much attention from App developers these days, and as such many of the photo apps iOS and Android users take for granted are expected to be sadly absent when RIM’s new mobile operating system, BlackBerry 10, makes it onto phones. Still, the upcoming operating system has already made some waves using Scalado rewind technology, and according to CrackBerry, there’s a lot more photo goodness on the way from RIM in the form of a full suite of editing options and Instagram-like filters.

The thought is that if Instagram doesn’t plan on developing an app for BlackBerry 10 — and the Facebook-owned company quite possibly doesn’t — then RIM will allow you to square crop and filter your photos through its own editing suite. The option should come with BlackBerry 10 smartphones when they hit the market in the beginning of 2013, but until then hit play to get a quick (if a little buggy) look at the photo-editing features, or head over to CrackBerry for more details.

    what’s funny is all blackberry users make fun of the iphone, but then RIM decides to make the blackberry look and function exactly like an iphone.
