During CES, RIM announced the availability of their latest BlackBerry handheld operating system, BlackBerry 7.1. The latest OS brings a bevy of new features, and the most requested and anticipated of them all is mobile hotspot. It looks like T-Mobile is now jumping on the OS updating bandwagon and offering the latest and greatest to their customers. If you’re a T-Mobile customer, you should be able to hit the OTA update button, or grab a USB cable, and load up BlackBerry Desktop manager to get the newest OS for your Bold.

It’s February and we all know what that means, PlayBook OS 2.0 launches this month! There hasn’t been an officially announced launch date; however, we’re hearing mid to late February. RIM has already started the marketing push for PlayBook OS 2.0, with PlayBook displays popping up in the UK. These displays proudly don the words: “New BlackBerry PlayBook 2.0 Operating System update,” and also feature some demo PlayBooks. It’s only a matter of time before we all have the native Email, Calendar, Contacts, and a redesigned UI on all of our PlayBooks!

RIM to “entertain” licensing requests, but will not focus on it as a part of their operations right now

posted by Zach Gilbert at on Jan 23, 2012 | Leave a comment

In todays press conferences RIM’s new CEO, Thorsten Heins stepped up to the plate to finally address a question that has been burning with analysts. Will RIM licence BlackBerry 10 OS to third parties. Thorsten went on to say that if manufactures contact RIM after the launch of BlackBerry 10 he may “entertain” the idea of licensing the newly minted operating system. While he did say they would think about it, they will not make it part of their core operations.

I would like to think that RIM would see the success of BlackBerry 10 and decided not to even think about licensing the new OS. If you think about it, when you license an operating system you really don’t have direct control over how it’s used. A good example is Google and it’s Android platform. Android is found on high-end, low-end and everywhere in-between giving consumers a drastically different experience on each device. This type of user experience typically has a rapid growth and short life span, I guess only time will tell. I’m curious to know what our readers think of this, do you think it’s good or a bad idea to license the new OS.

BlackBerry 10 OS to be shown off at Mobile World Congress in Febuary

posted by Zach Gilbert at on Jan 5, 2012 | Leave a comment

As we approach the release date of the BlackBerry 10/PlayBook 2.0 Operating System, the rumors are bound to begin flying, and the latest one doesn’t seem far from the truth. Pocket-lint is hearing that RIM will be in Barcelona, Spain during this years Mobile World Congress in February to demonstrate the power of the BlackBerry 10 Operating System. One thing to note is that there will probably not be any BlackBerry 10 devices on hand and it will be more videos and candid on stage demos.

This doesn’t stray to far from the information we’ve been receiving, though from the rumors it looks as though RIM might demo the new OS for the PlayBook later next week at CES.
