Jealous, iPhone users? BlackBerry launches FM radio on Z30, Q10, Q5 phones
TORONTO - BlackBerry has launched a new feature that it can boast even the latest iPhones don't have: FM radio.
A new version of the BlackBerry 10 operating system, which the Waterloo, Ont.-based company says includes hundreds of enhancements and new features, started being rolled out Tuesday by mobile carriers in Canada.
Battery efficiency is said to be improved and a new interface shows which running apps are the biggest drains on power.
Web pages can now be saved for offline reading without an Internet connection.
And users with a BlackBerry Z30, BlackBerry Q10 or BlackBerry Q5 will be able to tune into local FM radio stations without a data connection.
Those phones have built-in FM tuners, which are now activated by the new software update.
Samsung's flagship Galaxy phones used to have FM radio tuners but the feature was discontinued with the latest Galaxy S4.
