RIM (Research In Motion) is seen to be accepting BlackBerry OS 7 apps now in conjunction with the announcement of their new BlackBerry OS 7 at this year’s BlackBerry World event, where the new operating system version will debut when the new BlackBerry Bold 9900 series smartphones is announced alongside the same occasion. This latest version of RIM’s mobile operating system will be able to support a new feature known as Device Switch, where you can back up all of your data and restore it to the similar device or a different one without skipping a beat – perfect for the paranoid androids out there who want to always tote a backup of your information just in case.
Not only that, RIM has also started to accept applications for the new BlackBerry OS 7 platform, so if you’re a developer, you could start working on getting your BlackBerry 7 app ready for prime time. Will BlackBerry OS 7 be able to breathe new life into the BlackBerry range of devices and arrest their slow but sure decline where market share is concerned? Only time will tell, and of course, customer support is vital. What do you think?
