RIM to Reveal BlackBerry 10 OS at Upcoming MWC

Research in Motion reportedly plans to unveil the BlackBerry 10 OS at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month.

The Canadian smartphone maker is yet to reveal a BlackBerry 10 device but according to an article on Pocket Lint, the company plans to launch the OS at the MWC in February.

"2012 will be the year of BlackBerry 10, so we'll be showcasing the capabilities of our future operating system as well demonstrating the power of BlackBerry 7, with a particular focus on NFC and BBM connected apps. Research In Motion will be there in force," a spokesperson for the company told Pocket Lint.

The company failed to inform whether it will be showcasing a BB10 device at the conference as well. RIM had recently announced its plans to launch new BB10 devices by the end of 2012 as it was waiting for a supply of LTE chips.

RIM announced last year that it would furnish existing devices and launch new ones with the BlackBerry 10 OS, which is based on QNX platform. RIM earlier planned to name the OS 'BBX' but had to change the name because of potential copyright infringement of another company's name.
