BBX no go on OS7?

A Message From RIM

A Message From RIM

As you can see in the image above, I asked RIM whether the current line of OS7 devices would be upgradeable to BBX, which is blackberry’s new OS for smarpthones and tablets, and it tuns out it won’t. šŸ˜¦

what does this mean? well since the current OS7 handsets (torch2, 9900, etc.) all run on single core processors, they won’t be able to handle the processing power needed for BBX, so right now the only confirmed BBX device is the playbook… šŸ˜¦

    Blackberry is only making ground to bring new phones in the market. Blackberry users once have a large catalog to choose from will be less likely to shift to other smartphone brands and OSes. Right now, the task for RIM is to sustain the users it has. Attracting new buyers is something that RIM doesn’t even have time to think about.
