The RIM BlackBerry OS 6 is the 6th generation of RIM's Blackberry Operating System for use with BlackBerry smartphones.  The core applications have all been redesigned and it features updated graphics, animations and transitions with contextual menu pop-ups that expand upon the RIM's BlackBerry OS 5 theme. There is a new customizable homescreen with multiple views based on content type (all, favorite apps, downloads, media, etc.) as well as universal search. The RIM Blackberry OS 6 uses a touchscreen with multitouch features similar to the iPhone such as pinch-to-zoom. Other updates include a revamped media player and improved social networking capabilities with better integration with Facebook and Twitter. The RIM Blackberry OS 6 will also feature an improved WebKit browser that uses the same technology that is behind Apple's Safari browser on the iPhone OS. The browser will support multiple sessions and tabbed browsing.
