BlackBerry 10 rumored to be a disaster

RIM might be turning down buyout offers from other companies because it wants to fight its own battles, but according to one of BGR’s “most trusted sources” the future apparently looks very bleak for RIM. Other than the site’s word, there’s really no proof to back up what they reported, so take it with a huge spoonful of salt. Apparently the PlayBook 2.0 OS that is being tested right now […]

BlackBerry 10 is next operating system name

Well, after all the attention being focused on Research In Motion’s (RIM) naming convention for the upcoming BlackBerry operating system, with BBX taking top spot due to the Roman numeral system, it seems that RIM had to go back to the drawing board, or at least, settle for a more mediocre, albeit accurate moniker – BlackBerry 10.
