BlackBerry 10 may very well never come with the shape RIM is in, but that isn’t stopping the company from straight up stealing features to try and make it better. The latest news for BB10 is that it will feature a unified contacts list that displays all your information on a contact in one hub, including Facebook messages and tweets. Hmmm, sounds eerily familiar to something Windows Phone users have enjoyed for a while now.
Apparently the company hopes to differentiate itself by also including enterprise information for contacts, such as upcoming meetings with contacts being displayed in the unified contacts page as well. It’s interesting to note that Windows Phone 8 will most likely have this same feature, as the cloud-based contacts service Microsoft detailed keeps all that information together for you to access quickly. RIM needs to do more than just steal ideas from Android and Windows Phone and mash them together in an attempt to stay afloat.
