BGR’s incredible ninjas have uncovered another secret: Research In Motion has begun to work at BlackBerry OS 6.0 although OS 5.0 is just at the beginning. According to the source, BlackBerry OS 5.2 will become available later this year, while OS 6.0 has an unknown release date, but we’re betting on a next year release. BlackBerry smartphones are good and RIM’s market share in the US is really good, however, the company needs to take itself to the next level and gain more on the European market.
The Boy Genius guys cannot say more for the moment, even though we should expect more information sooner rather than later. I’m simply curious what RIM is doing besides that ugly half-touch half-QWERTY phone that we’ve seen last month. RIM should develop a phone with cutting-edge hardware as well as state-of-the-art software if it wants to outrun Apple’s iPhone. Could the Canadian manufacturer be the first to crush the Cupertino crew? Boy, I’d sure enjoy seeing this!
