DevCon Asia is currently under way in Singapore and right off the bat one of the biggest news is the new name of the next OS generation on BlackBerry will no longer be BBX but instead BlackBerry 10. We reported a couple of days ago how BASIS had filed a temporary restraining order against RIM for the use of the name BBX. It seems Research In Motion just ultimately wanted to avoid any legal issues with BASIS and has made that X become the roman numeral for 10. This will be the biggest jump in OS numerical value for RIM as they will be going from 7.1 to 10.
I personally have no problem with RIM going back to numerical values for their OS brands. It actually reminds me a little bit more about a certain video that we got to see about RIM's outlook on the future (OS 10.x anyone?).
Now who's going to start re-editing all our articles to say "BlackBerry 10" instead?
