September 15, 2011 | By | Add a Comment

The BlackBerry Developers Conference kicks off on October 18th and it sounds like we will have some very exciting new things to play with. During the Investors Call today the RIM execs talked about some upcoming software updates for the PlayBook, the future of QNX smartphone OS, and the BlackBerry Video Store. I’m very excited to hear RIM say that working prototypes of the QNX Smartphones will be showcased shortly.

Quick Notes:

  • PlayBook OS v2.0 – Native Email and PIM to be shown at DevCon and launch shortly after
  • QNX Smartphone OS to be showcased in the close future, with working prototypes
  • BlackBerry Video Store to launch for PlayBook with 10,000 movies and TV shows for purchase and rental
  • A lot of planned announcements for DevCon, including Developer Apps for QNX, and developer handsets to get use to the platform
How do you feel about the future of BlackBerry? Can you wait until DevCon next month?
