BlackBerry 10.2 has now begun rolling out to the BlackBerry Z10, BlackBerry Q10 and BlackBerry Q5 in Europe, Canada, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific. When users get the update depends on their region, and also on what operator their smartphone is locked to.
We don't have precise details about the roll-out, but SIM-free owners should expect to get BlackBerry 10.2 very soon. Just watch out for notification of the updates availability in the BlackBerry Hub, or check for it manually in System Settings > Software Updates.
BlackBerry 10.2 was unveiled last month and came pre-loaded on the recently released BlackBerry Z30.
After installing the update users can enjoy a refreshed 'Priority Hub', which learns what is important based on a users activity. A whole host of other improvements make their debut including: third-party app support in the BBM Hub, lock-screen notifications and much more.
The release of the BlackBerry 10.2 update signals the end of a busy week for BlackBerry, who also released their BBM application on the Android and iOS platforms on Monday.
This is actually the second time the BBM application has launched after an earlier version of the application was accidentally posted on Google Play. It caused problems with newer versions of the application, and consequently the whole service had to be taken down.
Users seem to have been undeterred with the BBM application being downloaded over 10 million times since its Monday launch.
As soon as the crew at 3G get news of BlackBerry 10.2 update rolling out in the UK, generally and on specific operators, we'll let you know.
