RIM to Launch New Line of 'Super-Phones' in Early 2012

Recently, Research in Motion provided interesting information regarding the BBX phone, which is to launch in early 2012.

RIM's vice president of Developer Relations and Ecosystem Development, Alec Saunders, confirmed that the Canadian company is trying to join the super-phones market, which are popular at the moment and is initiating their efforts from the design of BlackBerry PlayBook, as reported by PC Mag.

Saunders also added that the new phones will be running the latest QNX operating system. The keyboard and screen design present in the current BlackBerry range will be different.

The new RIM products will be slimmer than ever. The devices will each have touchscreens with 1024 X 600 mega pixel resolution along with 16:9 aspect ratio.

The vice president stated, "Look, if you build [an app] for the PlayBook, then it will run on BBX. We have maintained aspect ratios, BBX also has the ability to upload multiple dimension graphics ... [and the standard resolutions] are the same as PlayBook,", as published in PC Mag.
