BlackBerry 10 Would Be the Official Name of RIM’s Next Mobile OS

The co-founder and CEO of Research In Motion (commonly known as RIM) announced earlier that the next mobile OS of the company will be named as BlackBerry BBX. However, the recent tweet from the company now suggests that the official name of the next generation of RIM’s mobile operating system will be BlackBerry 10 instead of BBX.

BlackBerryDev tweeted, “#BBDevCon Asia Keynote: BlackBerry 10 is the official name of the next generation platform that will power future BlackBerry smartphones!^BZ.”

It is important to note here that BASIS International filed a lawsuit against RIM over BBX name, claiming that the company has already been using this name for its software products. The RIM lost the case and forced to change the name of its next generation mobile operating system.

Back in October, RIM announced its next generation mobile OS under BBX name. But now it is renamed as BlackBerry 10. It is basically a unified OS for RIM’s smartphones, tablets and other devices, combing the remarkable features of BlackBerry OS and QNX, the OS acquired by RIM back in 2010.
