QNX Drops BBX Name At Japan Auto Summit
Things are starting to get exciting once again in the world of BlackBerry. We are starting to hear more and more about this new BBX platform. We got word a couple days ago that new BlackBerry X (BBX) platform, would be announced at the upcoming DevCon in San Francisco. The BBX platform is rumored to be a QNX based OS for the PlayBook and the upcoming QNX based BlackBerry SuperPhones.
Although we have some information regarding the devices BBX will showcase on, there is still much to be determined in regards to its functionality. A photo taken from a recent QNX blog
post shows the name BBX in one of the presentation slides talking about QNX Car 2. This is exciting as it helps confirm progress in RIM's next major move.
With QNX based Blackberries coming soon it only makes sense for RIM to announce something like this at the next DevCon. I am excited about this, a fresh name, a new OS, and new devices on the horizon. I like RIM's decision to step out of their traditional OS and device models, and move towards something fresh.
What do you think? Are you excited about BBX?
