RIM have already denied all kinds of rumors, about the possibility of releasing the BlackBerry Messenger – one of their most distinguishing features, for any other platforms, but a few months later it turned out, that such a project may have actually existed under the code name SMS2.0. According to the Wall Street Journal, which has published some interesting information regarding these rumors, the company’s new CEO was the main reason for all work on the project to be abandoned. The idea about multi-platform versions of BBM has actually been a part of the company’s strategy to keep some of their market share and remain popular among their users during this hard period, they’re going through. Still, now more than ever, RIM’s hope for a brighter future is relying on the success of the next version of their platform – the BlackBerry OS 10, which is expected to arrive by the end of the year, in a few months.

It hasn’t yet been confirmed, whether this is true or it’s just some kind of a joke or simply an emulator, but a Dutch YouTube user has recently uploaded a video showing a standard BlackBerry PlayBook, which is running Microsoft’s mobile platform – Windows Phone 7. As you will see on the video down below, the OS is running quite smoothly, though there are some small (neglectable, considering the scale of this achievement) glitches. The software seems to have been taken from a Nokia Lumia, at least judging by the color range and the Nokia applications. So far these are the only details, known about this project and we’re going to say it again – it hasn’t been confirmed if this is real or fake – judge by yourself. B.

Just last week RIM revealed the first alpha version of their long-awaiting new platform – BlackBerry OS 10. This version of the platform is, of course, only meant to be used by software developers and is still missing a lot of the features, which we’re going to see in the final version. Crackberry, though, have managed to acquire some interesting details, which may actually be revealing some of the changes, which are planned to be made to the system in the recent future. The documents hint, that we should be expecting an option to wirelessly share our screen, a video editor, which is probably the result of the acquirement of JayCut last year and last, but not least – a new type of lock-screen, which would show notifications according to the device’s movement.

In the past few months fate hasn’t been kind no RIM and they were losing market positions about as fast as Nokia, who are currently switching from Symbian to Windows Phone. The Canadians, though, are betting everything on just one card – the new BlackBerry OS 10, which is going to debut later this year along with a new series of devices, running on it. At the BlackBerry World event in Orlando RIM officially revealed the platform and for the first time shared some details about it. The OS itself is based on QNX – the same software can be found in the PlayBook, but is, of course, optimized for smartphones. The company’s tablet is also going to receive an update to the platform later this year.
One of the key features, on which RIM focused at the event, were the gestures, which allow the user to quickly access documents, apps and events notifications. Of course, being so popular with their near-perfect QWERTY devices, the Canadians have also had to work on making a remarkable onscreen keyboard. The one, featured in BlackBerry OS 10, is going to rely on enhanced algorithms for touchscreen typing and is even going to learn the user’s habits with time. The keyboard also includes a special word predicting technology and allows for quick access to symbols through gestures.
Reuters have published some interesting statistics, which came as a result from a recent research, conducted by The Luxury Institute, about the habits of the wealthy smartphone users. There are the ones with an income of over $150 000 per year, who’s average age is 52. Employees of the research agency explain, that with age, people tend to have more and more commitments, which leave them less time to spend on things, which we generally think of as unimportant, such as games and chatting.
Despite this, even the wealthy (and elderly) smartphone users regularly use applications such as Facebook and Angry Birds, which are actually the most popular applications for 2011. Among this group of people, 45% were using Apple’s smartphones, 35% – devices, running Google’s OS and about 25% – BlackBerry’s (some of the people had more than one device). B.

It’s already clear, that RIM are relying heavily on their new BlackBerry 10 platform, which is expected to be released by the end of this year, to regain their former market share. The software is going to be based on the OS, which can be found in the company’s first tablet PC – the BlakBerry PlayBook, which means it’s going to rely on the QNX platform. The company, it seems, is going to be well-prepared for the debut of their first BB10 devices and they’re even going to give 2000 of the new phones away to developers during the BlackBerry Jam conference in the beginning of May. Currently a lot of people are eagerly anticipating the debut of RIM’s new platform, which means, that the company should be really careful not to delay it or even worse - disappoint the fans. B.

RIM recently released an important update for their tablet, the PlayBook, and it seems they are planning to keep on supporting the device for quite a long time. The Canadian company has confirmed in a recent statement for TechRadar, that the next version of the BlackBerry platform (the long-awaited semi-mythical BB10) is guaranteed to be released for their tablet. This is actually quite logical, knowing that BlackBerry OS 10 is based on QNX, the platform, which the PlayBook currently uses. The OS is expected to come at the end of this year and is also going to be used in RIM’s new line of smartphones, which are also going to be released then. B.
