RIM to continue supporting BlackBerry OS 7 as BlackBerry 10 rolls out

0. phoneArena 21 Dec 2012, 01:11 posted on

just because RIM is rolling out BlackBerry 10 next year doesn't mean that the current OS will disappear as though it never was issued, and RIM CEO Thorsten Heins addressed the issue on Thursday by announcing that there is still a rather sizable R&D squad hard at work on BB OS 7; Heins pointed out that BlackBerry OS 7 devices remain strong in the Asia Pacific market...

Will rim support playbook as well? Because that's crucial as well...

and I also hope the CM team works on this qnx based os so that we can root this bb10 in order to be cydia killer... Just sayin lol

Don't know about Playbook. Maybe not, since sales volume just was not there. OS7 is a different matter. If RIM bailed on OS7, that would be suicidal, and RIM doesn't strike me as being suicidal. At least not yet.

This isn't new, its been confirmed long ago by rim, they plan on having the os7 devices serve as low end models for awhile.

This is why I love RIM, they won't just dump BB7 cos BB10 is at the corner unlike samsung who won't update its last years flagship to jelly bean.. Its ridiculous knowing that the galaxy s ii beats the so called samsung galaxy s3 mini hands down in every aspect from the processor to the screen etc but won't taste jelly bean.. F U samsung.
