On this day of May 4, RIM is probably the biggest bet of his life. It was at the BlackBerry World in Orlando, that the Canadian firm announced its new mobile platform, before an audience of journalists and developers. Needless to say that this announcement should RIM out of the crisis that struck in 2007 and the emergence of touchscreen smartphones, and other ultra-complete application systems.
This time, the BlackBerry pampers its developers, the brand knows it will be saved only if they play the game The program includes tools to facilitate application development “innovative and interactive.” This brand new OS should catch up with competitors, well ahead in recent months, even years. OS10 seems straight out of the playbook and system QNX. The tablet marketed by RIM last year, had not been very well received by the general public, and remains a bitter failure. This OS will be completely open, optimized for the new processor cores, and particularly suggested in several segments (smartphones and tablet, one imagines).
The interface is very similar to the playbook, so to WebOS. She is full of flattering effects and wants perfectly smooth and responsive, dixit RIM.
Expect the fall, and the arrival of the first devices embedded on OS before delivering a final opinion, especially as competition is fierce. Note that developers attending the conference received a BlackBerry development, history begin their work immediately.
