    BlackBerry tooks the wraps off BlackBerry Assistant today, which aims to provide voice actions for just about everything you could want to do with your phone. We've caught glimpses of Assistant through leaked BlackBerry 10.3 builds, and we suspect the whole affair is powered by Waterloo local Maluuba.

    I've read some of these articles and posts but am a little confused. Is the 10.3 with the new assistant available now? Has 10.3 been "officially" released for the Z10? It looks good.....looking forward to using.

    Not available now, it's just a heads up and unveiling of what we will have later this year in the 10.3 and 10.3.1 release

    This should have been an original feature on BB10. I am glad it will be coming soon!

    Unfortunately a lot of things in 10.3 should have been on 10.0. But, you win some, you lose some...and sometimes winning just comes a little later than you wanted.
