RIM to continue supporting BlackBerry OS 7 as BlackBerry 10 rolls out
posted by Alan F. / Dec 21, 2012, 1:11 AM
Heins says that RIM still has a "significant R&D team" working on the software, and the continued success of the platform in the Asia Pacific market gives the Canadian manufacturer a reason to continue supporting the OS build. Heins also hinted for the first time that the legacy models might be cut in price and sold to cover a lower end price point. He even hinted that BB10 hardware could be sold with BB OS 7 inside, "...because for those messaging-oriented markets, it’s an exciting platform and its a really perfect platform."
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 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.
