RIM will be rising the BlackBerry PlayBook as well as its QNX-powered operating complement subsequent month, nonetheless outward of the matter from the RIM exec claiming which QNX will in the destiny reinstate the BlackBerry OS upon smartphones, there hasn’t been most denote as to what RIM skeleton to do when it comes time to move QNX to the handsets. Today some-more headlines upon the company’s destiny OS skeleton has come to light, though, pleasantness of the folks during Berry Review. According to the little records upheld to them from the developer keynote today, RIM is cranking divided upon the plan internally referred to as “Highlander” which will mix the most appropriate pieces of OS 6.1 as well as the QNX OS to form the BlackBerry 7 OS. The name has to do with the “There can be usually one” theme, definition OS 7 will in the destiny have the approach to both the company’s smartphones as well as the PlayBook. Obviously there’s no plain launch date for OS 7 only yet, nonetheless RIM is pronounced to be in the “early stages” of the program as well as have been right away formulation to pull it out subsequent year.
What about the (almost) here as well as now? The inform claims which OS 6.1 is lagging at the back of report since of the little miscommunication in between the assorted teams operative upon it nonetheless which RIM is happy with the swell so far, generally the “Liquid Graphics” in the OS. Still, RIM acknowledges which OS 6.1 is display the age as well as is carrying the boundary pushed.
Earlier this year, you saw the series of arriving BlackBerrys trickle which will presumably competition Bla ckBerry 6.1 when they do arrive. There was no report in the leaks regarding to the recover date, nonetheless we’ve listened which the Monaco (Storm 3) as well as Montana (Bold Touch) could arrive possibly nearby the finish of Q2 or the commencement of Q3. Of course, the subject here is either these inclination will be sufficient to assistance RIM go on to quarrel off competitors similar to Android, iOS, as well as Windows Phone 7. We won’t know for certain until you get to take the latest program as well as hardware for the spin, nonetheless we goal which RIM’s got something large up their sleeve for 6.1; 2012 as well as OS 7 have been still flattering distant off.
Yesterday, there were reports which RIM’s arriving tablet, the BlackBerry PlayBook, was now carrying the little difficulty with battery life. Usually, it’s approaching which RIM not criticism upon rumours as well as speculation, though not this time. PR sent us the note saying:
“Any contrast or regard of battery hold up to date by any one outward of RIM would have been achieved regulating pre-beta units which were built but energy government implemented. RIM is upon lane with the report to optimize the BlackBerry PlayBook’s battery hold up as well as looks brazen to upon condition which business with the veteran class inscription which offers higher opening with allied battery life.”
For those unfamiliar, the BlackBerry PlayBook has the 5300 mAh battery, which will be taxed by the dual-core 1 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, the 7-inch 1024 x 600 capacitive touchscreen, the 5 as well as the 3 megapixel camera, as well as Wi-Fi (3G as well as 4G chronicle entrance soon, expected by approach of latest modules for the ascent cavity). Arguably, the greatest thing about the PlayBook is the latest OS, which now stands detached from standard handheld software, as well as specializes in multimedia, stability, as well as multitasking. Best of all, it’ll be entrance to RIM’s smartphones earlier or later. We’ve seen the QNX-based program run sincerely uniformly in the series of demos, if you’re curious.
This matter from RIM could be taken as the knee-jerk greeting to the baleful headlines this story had generated, or the bona fide invulnerability to early judgments upon an unprepared product – take it as you will. Personally, you consider the usually in accord with thing to do is to wait for until you have the thing in the hands to have any statements about battery hold up or any alternative peculiarity of the device. CES is only around the corner, as well as we’re awaiting to get the little hands-on time with it then; whilst which competence not be prolonged sufficient to endorse battery life, may be RIM will give us the plain series in hours to work with.
