    Could This Be RIM's New BBX Phone ?

    BBX has been one of the hottest topics within the BlackBerry community ever since it was officially announced back in October. Since then we have been constantly wondering what these new super phones would look like. The general consensus among BlackBerry aficionados seems to that the new devices will look similar to the BlackBerry Bold. This is all based upon the rumored BlackBerry Colt that is said to be the first QNX based device to come out.

    It was not to long ago that we reported about some leaked videos (we were forced to remove them by RIM) that surfaced from RIM that showed off some of what they depicted would be the future of mobile technology. Among the devices depicted in the video was a futuristic looking cell phone shown in the picture below. Could this be RIM's new BBX device? Now before you say no, lets think about this for a minute.

    Most everything we know to date regarding BBX devices are pure speculation, but we have been given some hints by RIM. Here are some of the hints we have been given by RIM:
    • will have the same screen resolution and aspect ratio as the BlackBerry PlayBook
    We have maintained aspect ratios, BBX also has the ability to upload multiple dimension graphics … [and the standard resolutions] are the same as PlayBook," - Alec Saunders
    • It will look similar to the PlayBook in features OS
    When asked what the QNX-based phone OS would look like, RIM CEO Mike Lazaridis held up a PlayBook, and said, "like this." - interview with PC MAG
    In addition I believe BBX phones will have door unlocking feature via NFC that's already in development and will be available early next year.

    Based on this the pictures may not be as far fetched as initially thought. The device in the picture does look like a mini PlayBook. I think its possible BBX devices could look like that. Yes, there are many questions left unanswered, but it does make you wonder about the possibilities. What do you think the new BBX phone will look like?

    Given the information that the BBX phone will be able to unlock doors this is a good possibility, or something close.

    Not Farfetched At All

    In my opinion, this is a glimpse of what the OS will probably look like. There are so many aspects of it all that relate to the ways a BlackBerry works, as well as to the ways we've been told they will work. BBX will provide us all with an exponentially improved and empowered experience with mobile devices. A true force to be reckoned with for the foreseeable future.

    Great post ice. I'm thinking that your visions are right on. And I'm with AgentBlackBerry as far as the newest BB streaking ahead of everyone else.

    If I was 16 yrs old, I wouldn't care about those features. As a business owner, I wonder how bb will help business next. Leap frogging an iPhone or android isn't hard when your talking about a device you would use at work.

    Right, these pics are are strictly enterprise business speaking. I imagine that BBX will have the same developer qualities as the PlayBook and games won't be the issue to draw in the younger crowd. They could possibly have a additional business pack users could download that would come with these added features.

    I believe that it should be directed toward the business world first. Then a downloadable game/social site app.

    Actually I think that the pictures display a very practical use of the phone for everyone. I believe as always there will be the business an pleasure aspect that RIM has yet to fine tune. I wonder if they will be bulky if the look box like.

    It should look like a small playbook and will be all touch screen , plus will support Bis & Bes for the first phone and then hopefully one with a keyboard like the 9900/99930.
