RIM finally showed off its newest operating system, BlackBerry 10, today at its BlackBerry World developers conference.The OS isn’t finished, but RIM is still doing some heavy promotion. Developers will get a free prototype phone to help them make apps for the new platform once it launches in the fall.

In the meantime, we took a look at the key new features coming to BlackBerry 10.

Keep in mind BlackBerry 10 isn’t finished yet. A lot of what you’re about to see is just a simulation from RIM.

This is the prototype BlackBerry developers will get. It looks a lot like the iPhone.

Here's a look at the calendar app.

And here's the email app.

There's nothing too out of the ordinary when reading an email. It looks like attachments will appear at the bottom of each message.

This is what it looks like when you get a call. Swipe to answer.

RIM spent a lot of time talking about the new on-screen keyboard. It supposedly learns your typing habits to help eliminate typos and mistakes.

The keyboard also predicts the words you're likely to type next. Just swipe up on the word you want and you don't have to worry about typing it out.

BlackBerry 10 has an AirPlay-like feature that lets you push media to your TV.

Videos stored or streamed on your phone will pop up on your big screen.
