First BBX Powered BlackBerry Device to Support BES and Will Have BlackBerry PlayBook Screen resolution

November 10th, 2011

Lately we have been hearing many rumors about BBX platform and what it will be bringing to the table.  At first we thought that it would not support BIS/BES. Which, I couldn’t think of a BlackBerry device that doesn’t support BES/BIS!

In an interview with PCMag RIM’s vice president of Developer Relations and Ecosystem Development Alec Saunders stated that the new BBX BlackBerry device will in fact have BES support. He also said that the first BBX device, codenamed the Colt, will have the same Screen Resolution as the BlackBerry PlayBook which is 16:9 aspect ratio with a 1024×600-pixel resolution. The first device will be a full touchscreen device.

Saunders also stated that RIM is going to focus a lot on gaming on the next BlackBerry Platform!! Click the link below to read Alec Saunders full interview! I can’t wait for BBX!
