    Few features of BB OS 10.2 coming for BB Z10.

    Headless apps

    Headless apps will be able to run in the background or be triggered instead of showing up and running as a pane.

    USB Host Capability

    This should allow you to connect usb sticks to BlackBerry devices and transfer files.

    WiFi Direct and Miracast

    This will allow Wi-Fi connectivity directly between devices instead of going through a router. This will essentially act like Bluetooth, but use the Wi-Fi radio for faster transfer speeds. Miracast will use Wi-Fi Direct for high bandwidth transmission of video to an external display.

    Flurry Analytics

    BlackBerry will support the analytics solution called Flurry which can help developers understand their customers better and create better apps via analytics solutions.

    Smart cards

    Smart card support will allow BlackBerry 10 devices to act as access cards to physical buildings/rooms via NFC.

    Altimeter

    The altimeter would allow developers to make apps that can use altitude information. This is either access to an existing barometer in the Z10, or simply a way to obtain altitude information from a GPS location.

    Geofencing

    Geofencing on BlackBerry smartphones will allow developers the ability to create apps which work or respond depending on a precise area you’re in. This can be useful for securing smartphones for business within a complex, or an application for notifying whether your child leaves a certain virtual area.

    Android Jelly Bean Support


    Along with OS 10.2, BlackBerry should be rolling out support for Android Jelly Bean Apps. This should bring in many new high-quality Android apps that are designed for the latest Android smartphones.

    If BlackBerry was smart and not resting on what they've already accomplished which they really can't afford to yet, 10.2 would also be the PlayBook release and with it bring true universality in portrait and landscape orientations for all default apps and the home screens and active frames screen. It also should finish restoring some functionality still missing like device analyzer and LED color customization capability.

    By 10.3-4 I hope they start thinking about interactive frames. That would truly skyrocket BB10 to be out of this world good and truly unique.

    We will see about August release, i am thinking most likely September. I would rather have it be delayed one more month and have it launch perfect over this 'put it out as fast we can' and then people will make threads about how this doesnt work or that wont start blah blah blah. This is going to be a huge update for us too, so i hope they wont rush it.

    For an app to be native, it would have to be native to the OS, like built for BB10 right? Or you mean run like native apps?

    Umm...I am pretty sure this is not the 10.2 OS update, but the update to the SDK, which is coming out in June.
